I just replaced the water pump on my 1996 Bonneville with the 3800 engine. I'm not real experienced with working under the hood, but I managed to get it done in an hour or so with little trouble. You'll need a socket/ratchet set with an extension, some open-ended box wrenches, and it might help to have a special compound to put on the gasket of the new pump when you put it on. I can't offer a full list of steps in order (this was my first time and I had some help), but here are some tips to keep in mind:

-Make sure you have a clear diagram of the serpentine belt before you take it off. Your Bonneville user's manual (if you have one) should have it in there, otherwise you can draw a picture of it yourself before you remove it, or better yet, check a Chilton or Haynes manual at the library. This is important.

-On mine I also had to remove the starter to get at one of the bolts on the water pump.

-Once the old pump comes off, be ready for some water/fluid to drain out.

-Unless your model is different from mine, you shouldn't even need to get under the vehicle for the replacement.

-The pump I bought was $40; you might even find one for less.

-It may help to have an extra set of hands to put the belt back on at the end. By the way, this would be a good time to replace your belt if it needs it.

-You'll want to flush your coolant system once the replacement is done.

Would a 1985 Pontiac Bonneville motor work in a 1995 Pontiac Bonneville?

NO, the 1985 Bonneville is rear wheel drive the 1995 is front wheel drive. Even if both engines are the 231 V6 you will have many problems as there were changes such as mounting points, wiring and engine computer cotrol, accessories, ect. Easiest would be to locate a similar year 231 (3800) .
