There is a tension pulley located on the left side and down about half way down with a arm attached to it, you have to pull the tension arm up to release the belt. actually on the 96 model it not that simple just to change the serpentine belt you have to disconnect MOTOR MOUNT before you can remove belt i know that sound crazy but i have a 96 acheiva sc v6 that i change belt on not pretty!

How do you replace the water pump on a 1995 Oldsmobile Achieva?

is it hard to change the water pump on a 1992 Oldsmobile achieva. Yes, it is very hard to replace a water pump on an Achieva. When the pump died on my 1996 Achieva, the engine needed to be unbolted and removed to get to it. As I recall, it cost about $500. I have a 95 Olds Achieva 3.1 and the water pump was very easy to change. Mine is on the front passenger side of the engine. Very easy to get to, just be careful not to break any bolts off. lol

Where do you add radiator Stop Leak to a 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva?

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 i can give you.
