On my 1997 iT'S at the front end with the belt going the other way with a SMOOTH pulley. it's an easy change. pull the pully bolts, take off belt, then pull water pump. This is actually a harder job than appears at first. The Haynes and Chilton manuals are useless on this subject. The reason is that one of the water pump bolts is obstructed by the PS pump pulley. You have to remove the PS pump to remove the last bolt on the water pump. Unless the engine is out of the car, it all has to be done by feel. The two bolts that hold on the PS pump are at approximately 12 and 6 on the pump. You have to rotate the pulley to a place where there is an access hole to get a socket onto the mounting bolts. Both bolts are 13mm and are fairly easily removed. However, putting the pump back on is an adventure. You just have to move it around until you get the bolt seated in the hole. I suggest getting the top bolt back in first. It will be much easier to get the bottom one in if you do that. It took me about 20 minutes to get the top bolt in and about three minutes to get the bottom one in. If you are given to fits of rage, I would suggest taking it to a mechanic. :)

Drain the water from your 1997 Chevy Monte Carlo cooling system. Remove the water supply hose. Remove the thermostat housing retaining bolts. The thermostat will lift out. Reverse the process to install the new thermostat.

In a 1997 Monte Carlo Z34 you will require 1 and 3/8 gallons of antifreeze. ?รฆThis is to be mixed with an equal measurement of distilled water.

Follow the top radiator hose down to the water outlet on the engine. It is in the water outlet.

Loosen the alternator and push the alternator down and pull the belt off, put new belt over crank and water pump pulleys and around alternator pulley and pull up on the alternator to where the belt is tight and tighten the alternator bolts down.

i had to have my gaskets replaced ... ive heard the 3100 are known for being made with plastics gaskets ... idk

pretty simple, but be sure to flush out the radiator, and replace the hoses and thermostat for a complete job...not to mention the belt...also.. You should be able to find a shop manual at your local library with the right info...make copies as they are usually only in the REFERENCE section....good luck:)

Well, if it is like my 2000 Monte Carlo, if you pop open the hood and stand by the passenger side and look down near the firewall you should see the power steering pump and the resevoir. Use a troublelight and you'll see it. To do any work on it, its best to remove the right front tire and you can access it from there. This is also how I had to replace my water pump when it went bad. The Einstein's at GM made it so I had to take all the bolts out of the power steering pump and move it just so I could get the water pump out.
