drain radiator of coolant, remove serpentine belt and remove pulley on water pump. If the pulley has 4 little bolts on it then loosen and pull the pulley off. If there are no bolts on the outside of the pulley then its pressed on, you can remove it yourself with a blowtorch but its hard to get off and on correctly. Remove the bolts holding the pump on and pry the pump off the engine, this will be hard most likely due to the gasket holding the pulley to the eingine. There will be coolant that will come out due to coolant you couldn't drain by the radiator...just have a container under car to catch coolant. Once removed scrape all the old gasket material off the engine... there is a gasket remover tool but a razor blade workls just fine. Once removed clean area well and apply gasket to new pump with gasket sealer and place pump back onto engine. Tighten bolts and replace pulley and belt, fill with coolant and top off as needed. be sure to purge the coolant systemof air after any major coolant work. The repair is relatively easy as loong as you have the right sockets for the job...good luck!

What type of coolant does a 1995 olds ciera take?

If you referring to the anti-freeze/coolant. Any name brand coolant will be fine. I have a 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera, and I recently flushed and refilled the coolant system. I used PRESTONE. I used to 50/'50 mix they sell (already mixed). That way you don't have to mix your own antifreeze. The recommended mixture is 50/50, that's what is recommended for the Cutlass Ciera. Other mixtures are 70 (coolant)/ 30 (water). If you are going to mix it yourself make sure you use distilled water, and make sure you mix it prior to putting in the vehicle. The short answer though, just get some Prestone 50/50 anti-freeze. That's your best bet.

How do you change the water pump in a 1988 Oldsmobile cutlass ciera?

What engine? You'll have to get a wrench on the belt tensioner and pull the serpentine belt off the water pump pulley. It should be just 6 or 8 bolts that hold it on...undo them and gently pry it away from the block. Some coolant will spill out so you'll have to top the radiator off and bleed the system when you're done. Scrape off any of the remaining gasket from the block, install the new gasket and new pump. Some people use a dab of silicone sealant to make sure it won't leak.
