The PCM is located on the passinger side. It is mounted in the firewall and to get access to it you have to remove the plastic shroud that the windshield wipers are mounted in. It has to be removed from under the hood even though most of the PCM sits inside under the dash.
Once you remove the plastic shroud be careful that when you reinstall it that the rubber seal against the windshield is sealed or when it rains the PCM will fill with water. This happened on my 2005 freestar after the windshield had been replaced. Ford has put out a TSB on this problem but they won't stand behind any repairs. I sealed the plastic shroud with silicon sealant. I glued the rubber seal right to the glass, Have not had any more problems since.

Wheres my air pump suspension valve

It doesn't work that way. The valve block that controls the ride height is driven by an on-board compressor and governed by a computer. You will need to go to a Land Rover specialist. From the sound of it, you probably have a leaking line or maybe a damaged air spring. I doubt it is anything more serious

Wheres the water pump at for a 1997 interpid

If you have the 3.5L engine, it is behind the timing belt cover and driven by the timing belt. If you have to replace the water pump on a 3.5L I would strongly suggest replacing the timing belt at the same time. If you have the 3.3L engine it is driven by one of the accessory drive belts and is located at the lower left side of the engine and doesn't require any timing belt work.
