All except 2.3L and 2.4L (Quad -4) models
CAUTION: If it has the Delco LocII audio syatem, make sure you have the correct activation code before disconnecting the battery. 1) Disconnect the negative battery cable 2) Raise the vehicle and support on jackstands 3) Under the vehicle disconnect the solenoid wire and battery cable from the stater solenoid. 4) Remove the starter motor bolts 5) Remove the starter motor NOTE: the location of spacer shim(s) 6) Installation is the reverse of removal NOTE: Be sure to install the shim(s) in the same location
2.3L and 2.4L (Quad-4)
See CAUTION ABOVE
1) Disconnect the negative battery cable 2) Remove the intake air duct 3) Remove the cooling fan 4) Remove the oil filter 5) Remove the starter mounting bolts and pull the starter out enough to disconnect the battery cable and wiring harness from the solenoid 6) Lift the starter out between the intake manifold and radiator 7) Installation is in the reverse of removal
Edit: I just did this in my 97 4cyl and I just wanted to add to these instructions that you may have to unscrew the starter relay to get the cooling fan out. The starter relay is right next to the battery. Also, check the wires coming out of the starter relay. There is a purple wire that connects to a connector mounted above the oil filter. It's easy to accidentally unplug when you are installing the new starter, make sure you get it back in there or the car won't start.

I have a 95 Olds Achieva 3.1 and the water pump was very easy to change. Mine is on the front passenger…

I have used radiator stop leak before in my 1996 Olds Achieva SC with the V6. I put it directly into the coolant resovor. It went in fine for me. This did not give me much help though. I would not recommend using stop leak. It will clog your heater core and then you will have more than the radiator as your problem. Fine a new radiator and replace it that is the best advidce…

The water pump on an achieva is a difficult task, however, i done it. you should really get a book for the car, i recommend haynes, it is really helpful. the water pump is below the exhaust manifold and behind the timing chain. both will have to come off.
