You have to drop the exhaust pipe and remove the wheel. I got his info from Wiki Answers hope it helps you.Read below.
. Disconnect the battery first. After that you may want to remove the driver's side front wheel. This gave us access to the starter for removal of the battery cable and the spade terminal which are on top of the starter while it is mounted. We then removed the two bolts that hold the starter in place. All of that took about 10 minutes to complete. On my passport the battery cable came off with a 12mm, the spade terminal is plug and play and all you have to do is push down on the tab on top and pull the terminal apart. The bolts for the starter are 14mm on my car. You need extensions to get at them though. After that is when all of the work began. We then tried every way possible to get it out of the compartment without taking anything else apart. No luck. So we removed the heat shields around the exhaust manifold and exhaust. Still not enough room. So finally we took the 3 bolts out of the flange that connects the exhaust manifold to the exhaust pipe. We had to use reverse torque bolt sockets for this. The one we used was the NAPA E-14. There are nuts on the bolts but removing only those won't do the trick. They are 17mm in case you are wondering. We then had to remove the bracket just aft (rearward) of the catalytic converter to get enough play in the exhaust pipe. Once you do this, the starter slides right out of the space moving down and aft. The new starter goes right in no problems once you are to this point. The only casualty to the whole process was one of the bolts from that flange on the exhaust manifold lost it's threads in the process. We were lucky that none of mine sheared off which is apparently a large concern and somewhat of a probability. Good luck

It sounds like it may be a stopped up radiator or a possible blown head gasket. You need to take it to a repair shop and have the radiator flow checked and also check for the presence of hydrocarbons in the coolant which would indicate a possible blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder head.

The crankshaft should have the timing mark on the crank pulley (Notch in the outer edge of the pulley near the keyway) It should align with the timing mark on the oil pump. (With the keway turned to about the 3 O'clock position.)
Align the marks on the camshaft timing pulleys with the corresponding dots on the front plate.
If you are installing a new belt, it should have 2 solid white lines printed on it that you would align with the timing marks on the cams and a dotted white line to align with the timing mark on the crank.
It makes a difference which way you put the belt on. (Which edge faces the front of the engine.) Most, but not all brands of belts have arrows and the word "FRONT" on them to tell you which edge of the belt shoud face the front of the motor. If there is no mark to tell you which edge is front, the letters on the belt must be able to be read correctly as viewed from the front of the vehicle.

Testimonial: "Thanks for bringing me back to reality... I just finished working on it and everything is fine. It really was that simple.... Thanks again."
Easier done than said! Don't be intimidated by the complexity of this job. You can save hundreds of dollars by doing this simple task in you driveway or garage. This is one of the easier replacements that I have done on a 4WD but there needs to be a little preparation. Exhaust pipe doesn't need to be removed for the 2WD model.
For the removal of the exhaust pipe form the exhaust manifold
17 mm deep well Impact socket
½ in drive 12 in extension for socket and ratchet
½ in drive breaker bad/ratchet w/12 in extension
½ in drive swivel for the socket
For the removal of the exhaust pipe a the flange
Reciprocating saw w/metal cutting blade
For the removal of the starter
Assorted sockets and wrenches for other bolts and nuts
Floor jack and 2 jack stands
Exhaust Manifold-to-pipe crushable gasket
High Temp caulking for the exhaust pipe flange gasket.
2 Bolts, nuts and washers for the exhaust pipe flange
Jack the front of the vehicles and place on the jack stands. Take the battery terminal off. Get up under the vehicles and spray WD-40 on the 3 nuts that hold the exhaust pipe on the exhaust manifold and on the 02 sensor that is just below them. Let this sit overnight for breaking purposes. Next day, remove the 02 sensor and using the 17 mm deep well socket, 12 in extension and breaker bar, remove the 3 nuts that were sprayed the night before. This should take about 3 minutes and a little "elbow grease". There is no need in removing the second 02 sensor but it does need to be unplugged at the connector just above it. Next locate the flange about 4 feet aft of the loosened manifold and using the Reciprocating saw, cut the welded on nuts from the back of the flange that is holding the bolts on. Retain the metal gasket for reuse. This should take about 5 minutes. The loose pipe should be free to move a limited space but it will be enough to get the starter out of the hole that it is in. Remove the aluminum shield from below the area where the starter is and remove the 2 bolts holding the starter on. Drop it down where you can remove the cable and small plastic connector next to it. The starter should come out of the confined space that it is in. You will simply go back in reverse order to replace the starter. Ensure that a new gasket is used with the exhaust manifold and 2 good beads of High Temp caulking is used on the rear flange gasket.
I suspect that the different models have varying degrees of difficulty. On 1998 Amigo 2.2, the bottom bolt can only be accessed by somebody with very small hands and the top bolt appears to be inaccessible. Answer #2 (massive pain) does apply to some models.
