Hi, I just made a new version for my site.
(it's not yet uploaded)

I want to ask these :
1) Will this, affect google's page rank for my site ? Right now, I have pr:4, and the h1,h2,h3 tags will be different.
Also, the pages titles, the metadescriptions and the main content (slightly) will be change. Will this affect my site's current position at search results?
2) Will i have to re-submit my new site to webmaster tools ?

    The only thing that impacts PageRank is links. PageRank is a measure of the quality of incoming links to a page. Nothing else.

    As far as your PageRank, you actually have no idea what the PR of any page on the internet is right now. Google stopped releasing the data almost 2 years ago. Whatever you see published is old, inaccurate data.

    1) Technically, yes, a site overhaul can impact PR If you already had pages with PR & changed/deleted pages or internal links without doing proper 301 redirects (If needed).

    Like Mike said, you'll never know the PR because it's no longer made public for new webpages. The PR you see on old pages/URLs is a couple years old so If those exact webpage link profiles ever changed then the PR shown today would be incorrect.

    2) No If it's only changing minuscule things.

    If it's a complete site overhaul with all new site structure, sure, add an xml sitemap to WMT to give Google a heads up the site has made drastic changes. Note, If you're already ranking pages a complete site overhaul will drop ranked pages like a brick If you don't know what you're doing (ex: 301s).

      Ah yes, beat me to it. Two ways your links could decrease.

      1. You could delete internal links.
      2. Any page you delete that has an outside link would now have zero links
      and be obliterated, all PR flowing to any page on that page is now gone.

      I am all for site overhauls, but url sructure, current urls, etc. should be
      left alone....except under extreme circumstances. That is, starting
      completely over.

      If you were disappointed in your results today, lower your standards tomorrow.

    No its not changed page rank because Google stop page rank update so even if you make whatever changes you like but you will see no improvement in your Pr.
