installed new ac pump now it keep poping the fuse in motor area

I had my car towed a few weeks ago and then had the fuel pump replaced. Ever since, there's been a rumbling or grinding noise while moving and veering right.

There's no such noise while turning left. There's no noise while turning at intersections, just while driving down the road and turning the wheel to the right to go around curves, etc. It's a continuous pitched noise, like if you drove down the rumble strips on the highway, but quieter. I feel it in the steering wheel. It gets higher in frequency at higher speed.

I would think that the towing chains broke some plastic which is rubbing against the wheel, but I don't see any. I will try to get under the car and get a good look.

I was charged for repair of power steering cooling line. what is a cooling line?

It appears that the driver side airbag needs replacement and also the steering wheel tilt mechanism is not working, the release lever is gone and the steering wheel is tilted upward and not free to lower.

My engine is making a knocking noise. The oil light comes on once is gets warmed up and usually stays on. Also, usually after the car has been running for a while it sometimes smokes a little and smells like rubber burning. Do you know what could be wrong?

I need to repair a dent in the driver side door. Can I find out an estimate for that?

I need to replace my clutch in my Chevrolet and can not find any diagrams to help me do this. If any one out there has a diagram or a manual that I can use for just a little it would be great. I am a single mom that knows how to do a lot on my car already and the only thing left is this. I can not afford the cost of a manual myself for the parts I can barely afford so any help would be great.

is there a procedure to test the fuel pressure regulator.also,should there be a difference in idle speed if the vacuum line is disconnected from regulator?

When the air is on water drips quickly from underneath the dashboard. If not the drain tube clogged what could be wrong?
