Try looking at the fuel filter, it might be partly clogged or just clogged.Locate the fuel filter, disconnect it and (I know this sounds strange) blow through it, if you get resistance of any kind, then it's bad, if it blows completely through with NO resistance at all, then it's good.

You may have loosened a connection when you had the dash apart, but I suspect the headlight switch is faulty.

Possibly the clunking noise may be your control arm bushings being bad. As for the check engine light, get the code read and go from there.
