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

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

Where is the thermostat located on a 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva?

the thermosts on a 96 olds achieva is on the transmission side of the engine toward the middle and is hard to reach. it is best to use samll 1/4" tools to remove it and sometimes made easier by removing exhaust shrouds. other wise it's held in by two bolts and comes loose fairly easy. The thermostat on the 1996 2.3L and 2.4L (Quad 4)engines is located above the radiator outlet pipe in the water pump cover which can be reached from under the vehicle on the passenger side. Note: The bolts are accessible from the top of the engine between the no. 2 and 3 exhaust manifold runners. It may be necessary to remove the engine to transaxle support brace to facilitate removal of the radiator outlet pipe. On all other engines the thermostat is located in the coolant outlet housing on the cylinder head.
