i just did a pump on a 2002 SL2 5 min before writing this. its not hard . take right side tire off remove plastic splash shield . the small one closest to front on the bottom it was in part behind the main splash shield. just pull back the main shield and pop the small one out . take belt off and drain coolant . the water pump will be just under the ac compressor looking at motor from the wheel well to the right of the main pulley . remove the 3 bolts holding the water pump pulley. they are 10 mm. use a 10 mm wrench put it on one bolt let it rest on the top of the main pulley. this will give you resistance to break the other 2 bolts lose. the last one i put a screwdriver in the open holes and took the last pulley bolt off. then remove the 5 10mm bolts from around the pump. the top 2 bolts were easy to get from the top. then gently pry the pump out. you can also remove the ac compressor not disconnecting the ac lines . and do it from the top the pump was $24.99 at autozone good luck. this is for 1991 to 2002 s series all models.

checked haynes manual to confirm info . solid

The water pump on a 94 Saturn S1 is replaced by removing the serpentine belt, engine accessories, and water hoses. The pump can then be unbolted from the engine block and a new pump put in place.

It should cost no more than $350, if u also replace the timing belt, which i recommend. The total w both water pump and timing belt should cost $375, and that's a padded estimate.

User Avatar

About $500 to $600 for the belt, and another $150 or so for the water pump.

If you have ever replaced a water pump on any vehicle the answer would be "yes" you can do it yourself.

If it is noisy, leaking or not pumping sufficient coolant to cool the engine, replace it.

The pulley is pressed fit onto the pump. It will not come off the pump. You have to replace the pump to replace it.

User Avatar

its on the timing chain. just follow timing chain replacement procedures and it will lead you to the water pump

User Avatar

do not attempt this yourself im a licenced Saturn technician,the water pump is inthe timing cover which is no big deal but you will never time the engine without the proper tools,its quite in depth.

That is a little expensive, around $400 should be accurate, it also depends on where you are located.
