Please specify an engine size. If it is a 3.1L v-6 there is a posting already about the t-stat. As for the water pump, it is on the passenger's side and is the forward-most, upper-most pulley driven part. It is a VERY simple replace and is held onto a mounting plate by small bolts. VERY IMPORTANT! Make very sure that you bleed all air from the coolant system after replacing the pump. The air can be released by unscrewing the small top screw on the assy that goes from the coolant bottle to the block. Mark,,,Raleigh, NC Helpful Hint---to loosen the bolts on the pulley, leave the serp belt as is, loosen the pulley mounting bolts, loosen the belt (DO NOT remove completely, remove the pulley, you will see the mounting bolts under the pulley area

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
