The cost of replacing a part is a very general question that unless specified exactly is hard to answer. First, is who is replacing the part? Is the Dealer, an independent repair shop, a junkyard, the guy next door or you doing the replacement. These will all yield different prices. Not to mention that within all of these will be different labor rates and different part price mark ups. Second, what is the quality of the part? Is it a name brand, generic (white box, economy), OEM or used part? All of these will be different. Price will even differ between name brands, sometimes significantly. Thirdly, What is the warranty of the part and who is offering the warranty (the shop the parts house or the manufacturer). Limited Lifetime will have restrictions. Lifetime warranty isn

Drain the radiator on the 94 Regal. Remove the water pump belt (remove the fan and shroud if necessary.) Unbolt the water pump. Install the new pump, then reverse the instructions to finish the installation.

It isn't easy. If you want, get a manual on your car from DISCOUNTAUTOREPAIRMANUALS.COM for about $9 and it will show you how.

The fuel pump on the 84 3.8 v6 regal is mounted on the front driver side of the motor, behind the water pump, between the power steering and pollution pump. Removing pumps and brackets may be required.

On the 3.1L & 3.8L engines, the CMP sensor is located on the timing cover, behind the water pump, near the camshaft sprocket.

Yes, there is a weep hole near the bearing on the water pump. When the seal goes bad, or when the bearing has to much play it in, it will start leaking fluid there.

You need to have a cooling system pressure test to determine as to where it is leaking now. Repair the leak and it should be okay.

The thermostate could be bad or a air pocket somewhere in the cooling system wont let the coolant circulate properly,

It should be fine if you move it yourself. It should not mess anything up by you touching it, and not a repair man.

Drain the radiator. Remove the water pump belt. Take the fan off and fan shroud if necessary. Unbolt the pump and remove it. Bolt on the new pump, and reverse the process to finish the installation.

My home was badly damaged in a fire, mostly by water damage. What do I need to know before I have someone come in to repair my damage?

Try looking for a Chilton's repair manual on Amazon or eBay. They're dirt cheap now.

You should by a service manual from the parts store where you get the water pump for step by step instructions and photographs.
