    My only advice is take this to a professional. Everytime you replace a part, you potentially add a new problem into the mix. You may eventually have to take it to someone anyway, except then it will take them more time to diagnose the problem, which will cost you a lot more in the long run.
    If you must try this yourself, get a good repair manual, try one of these:
