It mounts in the rear manifold at back of motor just after the 3 cylinders piping converges into the single outlet - there will be a silver cover on it and a wire (usually black that comes to a connector about 6 " away. You can use a wrench (about 1" size) or a specific tool to remove it. Do this with engine cold or the threads will risk being damaged. The new sensor comes with special beaded lubricant for thethreads on the O2 sensor. Be sure to use it BUT be careful not to get any on the sensor itself. The job can be bit aggravating but not too terribly difficult.

How do you replace the water pump on a 1995 Oldsmobile Achieva?

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
