where is the secondary air pump located?

Just replaced the alternator and battery. Finally got the car started and ran the car and after an hour, the car cuts off and the battery is dead. Could it be the ground for the battery?
Everytime I turn the keys on or turn off my car the trunk releases, why is that?
THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON THREE OR FOUR TIMES, AND EACH TIME THE CAR SEEMS AS IF IT WANT,S TO STALL OUT. I HAVE ACTUALLY PRESS THE PEDAL TO THE FLOOR AND ONLY GOT TO ABOUT 10 MPH. THIS HAS HAPPEN WHILE DRIVING IN TRAFFIC. AS QUICK AS THIS HAPPENS, IT RECOVERS AS IF EVERYTHING IS OK.
The temp. light came on. I started somehow ending up with empty coolant resovoir. I started car after filling with water,leaving the cap off .Within a few minutes,seemed to have air and water coming back into coolant resovoir.and seemed to look like it was getting hot and steamy. pressure builds up inside with cap on.
I just had the timing belt and water pump replaced. The mechanic suggested that I might need to replace the coil and wires as well because of rouch idle. The car did not idle rough before the repair and now there is also a ticking noise like the car is out of oil. (oil changed at same time as belt and pump)
Is the timing off or did something else happen when the belt broke?
Has there been anyone complain of a jetta going out of gear? A friend had a jetta and today it went out of gear and someone told them they thought at one time there was a recall on it.

I have a 2002 Jetta Wagon, the transmission was removed and inspected, the price for rebuilding was not in my expense range. I wanted have my car picked up by a flatbed tow truck and the repair facility would not allow the car to leave unless the existing transmission was replaced in the car (for a fee, in addition to the fee for removal and inspection of the transmission). The rational was that the car would be damaged if the entire transmission was not put back? Is this the case, and how do you tow a Jetta without a transmission?
I am getting a soft pedal now. I have replaced both front and rear pads and rotors within the past year. There is no loss of fluid.
My timing belt is missing some teeth and needs to be replaced. I was told the the engine is an interference engine and that the valves and pistons are shot and need to be remachined. The total cost for this repair is $4000.00. With over 100000 miles I'm not sure if it's worth it. The car ran perfectly until this mishap.
How do i know for sure whether or not the engine is an interference engine and I not being ripped off?
when the engine is cool the gears shift perfect once it starts to get hot it struggles to shift gears. how do you check the level on the transmission, cant find the stick?

I recently had a few things done on my car, and was told I had no power steering fluid in my car. They charged me $69.99 to replace the power steering fluid. I didn't notice this until I got home because I had a number of things done. I called the mechanic and he said it's because they flush the system before they add the fluid. Is this charge too high?
I recently had my compressor replaced at a local mechanic. Since then the AC has been making a fog horn noise every few minutes when it is on. Also the AC it makes a different loud noise upon start up and when I slow down.

can anyone tell me the steps to replace a drivers side window motor and controller?
When I bought the car 2 months ago the air was so cold it would freeze you out, at first the air would not get as cold, then it just started to blow hot. It shows a full charge, clutch kicks in, fan works but it still only blows hot. What could be wrong and would the parts be costly? I love my Jetta and would not take anything for my car because other than some minor repairs it has an awesome car and runs like a brand new one with over 200,000 miles on it.
