How do you replace a water pump on a 1998 Oldsmoblie Intrigue 3800 6 cylinder engine when all bolts will come out except the one behind the power steering pump?

The bolt that is behind the power steering pulley can only be

removed by removing the power steering pump. you should be able to

just pull of the pully with a power steering pully puller I got the

pulley off but cannot figure out how to get it back on. Might be

screwed. Probably best to remove the power steering pump. Recommend

you remove the two mounting bolts for the power steering pump. They

are located in the face of the pump and can be accessed using a

13mm or 1/2 deep socket through the access holes in the pulley.

This will allow the pump to be moved out of the way to remove the

last bolt from the water pump. gt Removing the power steering pump

by going through the holes in the pulley was life saving info for

me, and 13mm can work but 1/2" was the right deep socket size for

me. It's hard to see where the bolts mount to though as they go

thru the p/s pump, try and remember where it was so going back

together will be easier.
