Someone with skills/tools to enter a car with the keys locked in it may be able to get you in there.Ask a locksmith(they will probably charge less if you bring the car to them).The various vehicle entry tools to open a door might also work to open the hood.
I just helped my brother get into the engine compartment of is 1996 or 1997 Loyale when his cable broke. I used a loop of hanger wire, bent it in half then bent the loop so there was a kink in it about 45 degrees at about 2 inches from the end. I was able to go to the back of the latch (closest to the engine) and with a couple of false starts I was finally able to grab the latch that held the hood fast. I had him put a bit of pressure on the hood to release the tension. When I thought I had it, I could hear the spring, I had him release his hold and pull up on the hood. I came up to the second latch down and we were in. I used the coat hanger to make a temporary pulling device to use at the grill.
The water pump is run by the timing belt.Involves the draining the antifreeze,removing the radiator/condensor fan motors,harmonic balancer,alt./ac./p.s. belts, timing covers and timing belt.Along with a new pump,a new timing belt should installed.Timing marks are critical and it should be repairer by a garage.Should take about 1 to 2 hours or so to do if everything comes apart easy.Also there is no cap or rotor,only a coil pak.Hope this gives you a better idea.
