There are four different engines that you can have with this model. a 1.8L, a 1.9L, a 2.0 SOHC, or a 2.0 DOHC. I am in possesion of the last of the four. The first thing to do is to purchase a manual. There are two major manu. of these manuals. Chilton's and Haynes. I reccommend the latter of the two. More pics and more in-depth instruction. It's a little difficult with some of the engines (2.0DOHC) not so bad with the others.

This procedure is more involved then can be outlined here. Purchase a HAYNES REPAIR MANUAL which will describe this procedure in detail.
