What all do I gotta take loose to replace fan blower motor

Remove the panel under the dash on the passenger side and the blower motor is right there. You may also need to remove the glove box liner, it is held in with screws, about 6 of them I think

The low coolant light keeps going off have had the radiator replaced and it doesn't get hot but the low coolant light still goes off

There is a switch (sensor) that is installed in the radiator tank, partway down one side that monitors coolant level. It would not be included with a new radiator, so if it was not replaced when the radiator was done, chances are that the sensor was just moved from one to the other. The sensor is probably going bad. You were right about the A/C. It has nothing to do with this issue. It is not a critical sensor, but light can be annoying. If you replace it, chances are your problem will go away. If you wish, you can disconnect the electrical cable from the sensor. If the low coolant light is then lit, you can ground the sensor cable to make it go out. If it goes out with the cable removed, then you can just tie it back. Just remember, though, that you no longer have a low coolant detection capability. Regular checks of the coolant level would be required, although this should be normal procedure anyway.

Drivimg down road excellerated and car bogged down and died could this be a timing chain replaced electronic modulator and now gets fire but still wont start

I doubt it. If the chain failed, the cam would not turn and you would not get spark. If you have normal compression on all cylinders, I would look at fuel pressure and engine computer codes.

You have to tear the whole steering colum apart. It would be easier to get a key made. Or just get a garage jack and jack the rear off the ground and push or pull it around with some friends help.
