DON'T KNOW WHATS GOING ON W/ 2000 HONDA CIVIC LX/AUTOMATIC

On a cross country trip from Florida to California driving my 2000 Honda Civic LX I noticed that my radiator fan stopped turning about 500 mi from my final destination. I managed to bypass it but then I somehow managed to get an leak in my oil. A BIG one! Then my engine started making a loud clicking noise whenever I accelerate and it won't let me accelerate above 60 mph. I've never had problems like this before with my car. I've always maintained it properly. The only problems I've had involved my radiator which I promptly replaced. As of right now she has a little more than 145k mi on her. Please help. This car is my baby. Until I can determine whats wrong with her I can't return home. Please help.

On the fan problem I would probably replace the temp sensor. You haven't described the oil leak too well. I big leak should be easy to track down. If you know where it is coming from we can give you some thoughts or advice.
