If you feel that you've hit the hole that hard, you should have the wheel and suspension checked by a professional. The strut or control arm may be bent and in need of replacement, but that's only if you've really hammered it.

Find the cause of the check eng light and find the cause of the poor mileage.

It may not be a fuse issue. You could have a bad socket connection. Pull the wire from the back of the lighter socket to see if you have power there. If you do, then the socket is bad.

You should be able to get a replacement either at a car parts store or an on-line supplier. It is probably not very hard to change - unlatch the electrical connector and unplug, then remove the clamping screws and pull the old injector out. Be sure to check for an O-ring in the seat; you don't want to try to put in two o-rings (not all designs use one).
I assume you know the injector is bad because you have observed uneven or erratic spray from it, or you know the solenoid coil is defective.

it is mounted on the fuel injector rail

There are only 2 types of clutch linkage, cable or hydraulic.
I am assuming it is cable, and it snapped.
Not hard to do. Unattach each end, and remove. When you put the new one in, make sure to adjust it to about a half inch freeplay, unless it is self adjusting.
If linkage is hydraulic, then check the fluid and look for leaks.

Whom ever told you that the Saturn's where hard to find parts for it is wrong. I used to own a 1992 Saturn SL1, and had no problem finding parts at the local Autozone or Napa stores.
I believe that your fuel filter is either located on the frame rail just under between the drivers and rear seats; or possibly under the hood in-line just before the fuel rails/ injectors. I wish I would have never gotten rid of mine, it was a great little car.

That is pretty easy. If your Saturn is an SL1 it is single cam if it is an SL2 it is dual cam. That is the only difference between an SL1 and an SL2 - Saturn didn't even bother to put a tag or emblem anywhere on the body to differentiate between the the two models. The 8th digit in the VIN will confirm this for you. If the 8th digit is "7" it is a Dual Overhead Cam (DOHC) engine. If the 8th digit is a "9" then it is a Single Overhead Cam (SOHC) engine. When you have seen both engines, it is pretty obvious by simply looking at them. The DOHC cam cover is much wider and has 2 "humps" with spark plugs and wires going down the center between the humps. The SOHC cam cover is narrow and the plugs and wires go down one side.

Also in the 1992 model year, the DOHC engine was equipped with Multiport Fuel Injection. (MFI) The fuel injectors (4 of them) were located in the top of the intake manifold. The SOHC engine had Throttle Body Injection (TBI) The two injectors were located in the throttle body.

I don't have any pictures of the cam covers, but I have pictures of the cam cover gaskets (AKA Valve Cover Gaskets) you can very easilly see the difference.

On the throttle body you will find the IAC idle control valve, with two wires going to it, unplug and plug it back if no change then bang on the IAC if it goes to normal idle change one with used one and should be fine.
Idle aslo goes high IF a vacume hoses get cracked or come off.
