Fan makes a very loud whining noise and check engine light is on. on 2001 Saturn L200

Have about 180,000 miles. Runs as good as ever, except the check engine light came on and the fan started making a very loud whine noise and does not stop. This is the second time it's happened. Someone removed cabin air filter at some point and never replaced it. Gas cap seems fine. Leak somewhere in AC system so that no longer works. Just want to get the fan problem fixed for now.
