I cant tell you all the details, but you can get a complete repair
manual for your car (or any car). They are not cheap though.
However, some of them are sold on ebay and other online auctions.
Maybe you can google something too. Search for "repair manual" +"2000

Look at item # 8020739736 on Ebay. Its a CD.
