If the motor is the 2.4L it will be on the back side of the motor,right below the exhaust manifold. It's a job to do. If its a 2.4 the water pump is in the rear of the motor.You must remove the exhaust manifold to access the water pump.Then you must remove the timing chain cover.When you remove the timing chain cover you must remove the timing chain tensioner.Its quite a big job.

To change the thermostat on a sunfire,look for the largest hose going into the water pump.Should be to the left as you look down at your fan.There should be a clamp holding the hose on. Remove the hose and look in the hole that the hose was pulled out of. It will be seated right there.If you need a pic. I have a manual and I can email it to anyone . My email is:

generally, if you know that the pump is bad or failing, replace it. Repairing it is rarely an option. That's why there's a core charge on them. They are returned for factory refurbishment.
