Yes!  That was it!  For now I bolted it up with the only nut and bolt I
could find to keep it secured.  Big relief there.

While under there I noticed that the belts were not in very good condition
so I will be looking into swapping out all the belts in the next couple of
weeks and I will probably go ahead and do the blower motor maintenance
anyway just for good measure.  The car is in need of some general
maintenance.  Here is the laundry list:

1. Oxygen Sensor (already purchased but not installed yet)
2. FPR
3. Valve Cover Gaskets
4. All Belts
5. Transmission flush and gasket (suggestions on tranny fluid appreciated)
6. Timing Belt (on thin ICE here.  Do not know when it was last done).

I bought the car 5 months ago.  I am not mechanically good enough to do this
work on my own but I will give some things a shot (FPR, OX Sensor, etc.).
If there is anything missing on this list anyone thinks I should add, please
let me know.  I want to sit down and start pacing myself to slowly but
surely get all necessary maintenance done.

Thanks again for all your help.

So was the noise from the oil cooler hitting the a/c compressor the whole
problem?  No blower issues?  That would be cool.
