Okay, I don't pretend to be a mechanic, and I don't have a repair manual for the '88 Reatta I bought used. Can anyone tell me quickly where the following components are located on the car so I can pretend to know what I'm doing:<BR> - oxygen sensor<BR> - gas filter<BR> - thermostat controlling the fan<BR> - PCV valve<BR> - a website describing all the diagnostic codes<P>I'm also trying to change the belt myself, and any suggestions would be equally appreciated. Thanks.

Since I recently changed the belt on my 88, I can talk about that. Just put a socket on the nut of the belt tensioner and counter clockwise pressure will lift the tensioner up. With you other hand remove the old belt. string the new belt almost totally on and again twist the tensioner nut to complete the placement. The tensioner will spring back and that's all there is to it.
