i highly suggest getting another car, or paying the 400-500 to get it done. you have to remove the exhaust, exhaust manifold, the upper left engine mount, jack up the engine, remove the timing chain case, timing chain tensioner, water pump housing, and then the water pump. and as complicated as this sounds......it still sounds ALOT easier than it is. Just an additional suggestion. I have had to get the water pump replaced twice in my 97 Achieva. The first garage I took it to asked if it was the 2.4 liter engine . When I said yes, he told me to sell the car. A friend of mine installed the first one and only charged me $350 and I bought the pump which was an off the shelf model. 2 years later, when it went again, I took it to a dealer who charged me $750 but used an original GM water pump. This is not a job for a back yard mechanic as half the engine is dismantled to get at this pump. ========== The simplest way - move motor down and then start procedure.

I have a 1997 Oldsmobile Achieva. I use the schematics in the Haynes manual I bought for my vehicle. There are several wiring diagrams in the manual, so you have to match your vehicle to the appropriate diagram.

There are two little black circle things, right above the licence plate, that turn and then they will drop down. Once you do that you'll see. I don't know what things are called, but I did just do this and it was easy.

The gas tank itself displays the number 8 on the bottom of it, however my 97 Acheiva seems to be a bottomless well.

its very hard to get to. if you look down the firewall on the left side. you have to remove the heat shield. i wound up dropping the exhaust and removing the exhaust manifold because its mounted under the water pump which is under the manifold.

The map sensor is located next to the idler air control valve on the front of the motor on top. It has a vaccume hose hooked to it and one bolt holding it on with a bracket.

Why would you want to do that? Are you trying to steal it or something? I'm sure anyone with that kind of experience wouldn't share that with an unknown person like you. Good Luck to you to.
