If its a 6 cylinder, the water pump is very easy its closest to the front passanger side. Remove the pulley and theres a few 10mm bolts remove them ,remove the water pump and clean the area and reinstall the new pump. Its a 20 minute job.

remember to drain your antifreeze other wise it gets a little messy!

One should remove the belt first by releasing the tension from the tensioner pully.

The trick is to remove the four bolts holding the pulley in place. There is a special tool. However, you can hold one bolt while lossing another. Then use two of the loose bolts as leverage for the last bolt
