You need to check the throttle stop cushion is making contact. The engine will hunt if you have air in the throttlebody coolant pipes, if the coolant sensor is faulty or if the TPS isn't calibrated.

The location of the pump is on the left hand side of the engine when standing at the front of the car.
You will see (if you have aircon) two belts.
If you stand to the side of the car to look at the belts.
From memory the inner one (closest to the engine) drives the aircon compressor.
The outer one drives the water pump, you will see the pump belt wheel towards the back of the engine.
Getting into the pump is a bit tricky.
I basically unbolted the engine mount from the body which then allowed me to jack up the engine as I needed it to give me space to unbolt everything until the 3 water pump bolts can be seen.
Just make sure you know which bolts go back where.
From memory there were about 20 bolts to undo before I got to the water pump.
Aircon compressor bracket bolt I only loosened them from the engine not fully removed, the same with the alternator I only removed the adjusting bolt to remove the belt.
Oh I just thought of something to do before you remove the tension on the belts... loosen slightly the 4 small bolts that are on the wheel that bolts onto the water pump.
I think the only size sockets and spanners I used were 10, 12, 14 & 17.
It took me around 2 hours to get it all undone, and close to the same to put it all back together with the new pump.
It was kinda straight forward as you can see what you need to unbolt because you know what bit you need to get into.
I hope this helps a little, I am not sure if it is clear in the way I have written it. But feel free to ask any questions.

It wont hurt anything if they stay on all the time cus the fan will mostly runs off your alternator. But if does bother you then it meant be the sensor on the fan. Or you can install a switch to turn the fun off and on with a toggle switch. But its up to you. But for the most part as long as the fan keeps going to cool off your radiator you should be ok. But i am thinking it maybe the sensor not telling the fan to shut off and turn on when its suppose to.
