The water pumps are behind the timing belt on the lower portion of the block (I assume we're talking about the 4 cylinder engines), and run off the timing belt (meaning that you have to either be VERY careful with the timing or retime the whole thing when you're done). I've done a few of them and I would *really* recommend taking it to a mechanic - it's a royal pain in the butt to do yourself and, frankly, whatever you do for work you're probably better off making enough money doing that to pay the mechanic rather than spending hours and hours and hours yourself and risking ending up with your timing out.

Despite how much of a hassle it is, it doesn't take an experienced mechanic very long to do it (and the more or less 'official' job-time-estimate manuals reflect this, so shop around if you get a ridiculously high quote); I believe it's only rated at a few hours.

If you DO decide to do it, get a shop manual (ie: Haynes of Chilton). You'll need it. Good luck either way!
