I have just had that poblem. Drain the coolant out unless you don't mind a mess you can disconnect the battery if you want but I have not been shocked are caused an arc yet. Autozone has the water pump here in Illinois for around 30.00 but you can get the coolant/antifreeze cheaper at wal-mart. You may also find it easier if you take off the belt tensioner 1. take the serpentine belt out of you way. 2. remove the pulley housing from the water pump(there are about four 7mm bolts. pull it off. 3. there are 6 or 7 bolts to remove the water pump. 4. coat the pump with silicone (blue is always the first choice but black,red, even clear will work)but make sure you can use it for an engine application because it will get hot in there. Reverse steps 1-4 refill with your choice of coolant/antifreeze and water(50/50 mix). Start the car and check for leaks.

The 2001 Oldsmobile water pump is located on the front of the engine. You can follow the top radiator hose directly to the water pump.

Remove the serpentine belt then remove the water pump bolts and any attached hoses. It would help to know what year, model, or engine size.

is it hard to change the water pump on a 1992 Oldsmobile achieva. Yes, it is very hard to replace a water pump on an Achieva. When the pump died on my 1996 Achieva, the engine needed to be unbolted and removed to get to it. As I recall, it cost about $500. I have a 95 Olds Achieva 3.1 and the water pump was very easy to change. Mine is on the front passenger side of the engine. Very easy to get to, just be careful not to break any bolts off. lol

To change the water pump simply remove the bolts from the waterpump, pull it off and replace with new. The power steering pump will need to be loosened and moved aside to remove one bolt. Clean old gasket from engine block and replace with new gasket and replace with new waterpump.

There seems to be two parts to the water pump and the fan is what usually goes first. Olds. was smart enough to just male that part to replace only. I was replacing the alternator on my 91 and decided to replace the water pump part I was speaking of. It's cheap and easy to get to. Hope this helps in some way.
