I pulled up to the pump last night after driving for about 30 minutes and when I stop and turn off the car smoke started coming from under the hood. When I popped it and searched around with a flashlight and found that coolant was spraying from the coolant flow control valve onto my exhaust manifold. I allready found this part and I am going to go pick it up later today but I was wondering if anyone knew the procedure for changing it. Also, do these go out like this for no reason or does this mean there is a problem somewhere else?

No reason? It failed because it is plastic and 16 years old. Good time to do a complete coolant and hose change unless recently done - which is unlikely because the flow controller should have been replaced then. Search is your friend - numerous posts on how to do this simple job. Check the HVAC section too.
