It is located under the car on the passenger side, under the dashboard.
Use a straightened-out metal coat hanger wire; the twisted screw end works great for this task. Yes, you will get your face a little wet from splash, so have a dry towel handy.

Check to make sure you drive belt is still there. If it is check the tension on the belt. If loose you may need a new tensioner and perhaps a new belt.

First, siphon out the fluid from the PS reservoir-a suction cup or a turkey baster works great. Then disconnect the bad hose from both ends-from the pump or reservoir at the top, and from the rack and pinion fitting at the bottom-fittings may be difficult to access due to tight spaces to work. So check if you can get to them and have the proper tools (extensions, or wrenches, or sometimes a crow's foot wrench is helpful), or if you need to take it to a shop for removal.
After hose fittings are disconnected, check for brackets holding the hose stable-often a bracket will be bolted to the back side of the engine where hoses are routed from the pump to the rack and pinion.

Well you know it does not have a speedo cable since you replaced the speed sensor in the transmission.
My guess would be a problem with the speedo or cluster.

First thing I would do is take off the battery cables and clean the inside of them to make sure there isn't any corrosion. Corrosion can cause a high resistance to the battery so it doesn't charge properly. Next I would put a voltmeter across the battery and make sure you are getting around 13 volts. If its less than that the battery may have a bad cell. Next thing I would check the ground cable that runs from the battery terminal to the body or frame of the car. If this cable is corroded where it contacts the car it can cause problems. As a last resort I would pay 75 bucks to replace the battery before getting into large cash such as replacing the starter.

Your local auto parts store should have it, and it is generally located under the dash on the driver's side.

two bolts on the hold down bracket ... two nuts on the cables.

Check your radio for a security code removal requirement. Disconnect the minus cable first when you remove old battery ... attach the minus last when you put in the new. When youj are all done WASH YOUR HANDS AND ARMS!

Souds like your getting too much fuel at a cold start. Possibly a bad fuel pressure regulator.
