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!
replacing achieva serpentine on a 96i have a 96 and you have to completely remove the motor mount and all of the bolts holding it on the engine to replace the belt,also carefully jack up the engine since it will fall on the ground if you take off the mount
To replace most heater cores you have to remove the dash on the passenger side.
It is in the gas tank.
Buy a kit at auto parts comes with adaptors and instructions
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
you need to replace your heater core.
I found this information with a diagram of the serpentine belt. Hope it helps.
I get about 30 miles to the gallon with my olds achieva.
The map sensor is located on the intake manifold on a 1996 Olds Achieva 2.4 liter. It is in the center of the intake manifold.
1992 olds Achieva does not have that switch. ECM receive signal from the coolant temperature sensor and send command to relay #6 for turn on/off the radiator fan. Relay #6 is located in the motor compartment on the fireboard.

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.
In the fuel tank
