The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

Hello , I am Ron , I have a Degree as an Automotive Technician . First you need to locate your water pump , you can do so by following the lower radiator hose up to where it stops . This is where your water pump is located, then you need to find out if your water pump is ran by your timing belt , or your serpentine belt . Drain your coolant, Then you remove the belt , then your pump , replace the old pump with the new one , if it ran by your timing belt you have to set your timing , start with your crankshaft , if you have duel cam then your exhaust (right), then your intake (left) to do so you align the hash marks on your pulley to the block , make sure you align the marks a quarter of an inch to the right to compensate for the belt to adjust , if you don't your timing will be off , after you put your belt n make sure your timed ! If you have an interference engine you will destroy your engine by warping your valves ! Then you fill your car with fresh coolant, then start your car to verify . Have fun , hope this was helpful to you.
