When you look at the engine on the pulley end you must find a triangular pointer on the main pulley and then look at the two or four cam pulleys for a dot like dent on the fin of the pulley. These are marks for timing, firstly you set the main pulley with the timing mark on the pulley to the triangular mark on the engine just above the pulley to the right or to the left, then you put both cam mark facing each other on the insides level with the top of the block. that it you should be able to start her up if your plug timing is in order,

This engine is one of the more straightforward types to time as no unusual or special procedures are required and the belt tension is automatically set by a spring. Because the alignment marks are all available at the front no special holding or setting tools are needed.
The belt replacement and timing procedure will be completely intuitive to any competent person, however it is an interference engine and getting it wrong is likely to cause expensive engine damage.
In this case I feel I must make the comment if you need to ask how to do the job you probably shouldn't be attempting it and make the suggestion you obtain a repair manual for your car or pay someone to do it for you this time so you can observe.
FYI, did you know about this, sorry no specs, hope this could help.

That second Problem IS The Waterpump. As for the First Problem, You may need to replace the Belt and Belt Tensioner. If the Tensioner is Bad it will allow the Belt to slip and will Not allow the Alternator to Recharge the Battery. For that Matter it Could cause the Overheating Also. I would go with the Belt and Tensioner First and see where you are.
I had a problem something like that and the transmission had went out and also I need a new head gasket i guess because it over heated for some period of time. Be sure he check the thermometer as well before you do some expensive repairs. All of that could contribute to your car overheating
