The snapping is interesting -
The fluid level sensor wires cannot make a sound like this - unless you have a
serious short circuit somewhere - and this would be obvious by the fire under
the hood, but I suspect your ignition coil is cracked or has a secondary leak
somewhere. The snap is the spark going somewhere it should not. You might try
removing thr left coil and giving it a careful inspection, and maybe even swap
it with the right side.
The resulting misfire from a bad coil will cause the mixture problem.
