Go to an auto parts store and get a haynes auto repair manual for your car, about $17.00, it shows some illustrations, but gives a step by step procedure on how to remove and install, good luck.

1- Open the oil cap, if you see the milky stuff inside the cap then the engine is having a head gasket problem since water is mixing with the oil thru head gasket. You need this fixed ASAP.
2- If there is no milky stuff, you are still lucky.
3- Now you need to check if you have a thermostate or/ and radiator clogged up problem.
4- Take off the thermostate.
5- Reconnect the upper hose.
6- Run the engine
7 Squeeze the upper hose to feel water flowing inside.
8- If there is water flowing, the problem with the thermostate. Put in the new therostate. It will solve your problem.
9- If there is no feeling of water flowing then you have a problem with the water pump or the radiator clogged up.
10- To check if the water pump is working or not. Wait for the engine cool down.
11- Disconnect the upper hose from the radiator.
12- Turn on the engine and continue feeding water thru the radiator cap.
13- If water was pumped out at constant flow, your water pump is good. Change the radiator since it gets clogged up. This is your problem.
14- If water is not pumped out, the problem is the water pump. Change the water pump since this is the culprit.
Since the troubleshooting is involved intensive labor, most shops are just replacing part at your customer expense by replacing one after another. To be ahead of them, you troubleshoot the problem then tell them to change the correct part. Good luck .

There is a possibility that your fuel transfer pump has quit and fuel is getting to your engine by gravity only. Have your tranfer pump flow rate tested. Also renew your primary fuel filter.

Testimonial: "i will check the fuel pump. i guess i will hear the pump start when i turn on the ignition. But - the engine also have stopped downhill(reg gravidity)"
Even I had this problem. After sometime engaging gear was difficult. There are two reasons. First, it could be leakage of servo fuel/brake fluid from the master cylinder on the clutch side or it could be due to the wear of the pressure plate.
