It's on the left side (driver side). It's by the belts. You can't see the water pump from the top side.
If you want to get to the water pump you have to remove the top radiator cross member, the fan assembly, the crank pulley, the timing covers, and the timing belt.

Ok, can you see your timing chain? Your water pump is driven by your primary timing if you follow that chain, it will run you right into your water pump. if you understand cars then these instructions should help you...

2.7L Engine

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
  • Negative battery cable
  • Upper radiator crossmember
  • Fan module
  • Accessory drive belts
  • Crankshaft damper, timing chain cover, timing chain and all guides
  • Water pump mounting bolts
  • Water pump
4. Clean the water pump mounting surfaces.

  1. Install or connect the following:
    • Water pump and gasket and torque the bolts to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm)
    • Guides, timing chain and timing chain cover
    • Crankshaft damper and torque the center bolt to 125 ft. lbs. (170 Nm)
    • Accessory drive belts
    • Fan module and upper radiator crossmember
    • Negative battery cable
  2. Fill the cooling system to the proper level.
  3. Start the vehicle, check for leaks and repair if necessary.
3.2L & 3.5L Engines
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Drain the cooling system. WARNING Do not use pliers to open the plastic drain.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:NOTE It is good practice to turn the crankshaft until the No. 1 cylinder is at Top Dead Center (TDC) of its compression stroke (firing position).
  • Coolant recovery cap and open the thermostat bleed valve
  • Drive belts
  • Timing belt
  • Water pump mounting bolts, noting the position of the longer bolt
  • Water pump. Discard the O-ring seal.
  1. Clean the gasket sealing surfaces, being careful not to scratch the aluminum surfaces.

To install:
  1. Install or connect the following: WARNINGRotate the pump and check for freedom of movement.
    • New O-ring and wet with clean coolant prior to installation. Be sure to keep the new O-ring free of any oil or grease.
    • Water pump with a new O-ring. Torque the water pump-to-engine bolts to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
    • Timing belt
    • Drive belts
  2. Fill the cooling system by performing the following procedure:
    1. Close the radiator drain.
    2. Open the thermostat bleed valve. Install a1/4 in. (6mm) clear hose about 48 in. (1.2m) long to the end of the bleed valve and the other end into a clean container. The intent is to keep coolant off of the drive belt(s).
    3. Slowly, refill the coolant recovery bottle until a steady stream of coolant flows out of the thermostat bleed valve. Gently squeeze the upper radiator hose until all of the air is removed from the system.
    4. Close the bleed valve and continue to fill the coolant recovery bottle to the proper level. Install the cap on the bottle and remove the hose from the bleed valve.
  3. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperatures.
  4. Check the cooling system for leaks and correct coolant level. WARNING Be sure that the thermostat bleed valve is closed once the cooling system has been bled of any trapped air.
if you need pictures, go to and search water pump in the repair guides after you select your car type, it's all right there.

Locating the oil plug on a 1999 Chrysler 300 M

I guess you are talking about the oil pan to drain the engine oil.
the transmission does NOT have a drain plug- that's why I asked in the first place.
But considering that, I think it is about a 13 or 14MM plug located on the right (Passenger) side of the engine under the car. The pan is a structured aluminum piece that hangs down almost even with the frame structure directly under the engine. Remember: righty- tighty, lefty- loosie.

2004 chrysler 300m 3.5L waterpump location and does it run off the timing belt/chain

Yes the water pump does run of the timing belt system.
Directly from the service manual:

The 3.5L water pump has a die cast aluminum
housing and a plastic swept vane impeller. It bolts
directly to the right rear timing belt cover using an
O-ring for sealing. The water pump is
driven by the engine timing belt.

The water pump on all models can be replaced
without discharging the air conditioning system.

NOTE: It is normal for the water pump to weep a
small amount of coolant from the weep hole (black
stain on water pump body). Do not replace the
water pump if this condition exists. Replace the
water pump if a heavy deposit or a steady flow of
engine coolant is evident on water pump body from
the weep hole (shaft seal failure). Be sure to perform
a thorough analysis before replacing water

(1) Drain cooling system (Refer to 7 - COOLING -

(2) Remove accessory drive belts (Refer to 7 -

NOTE: The water pump is driven by the timing belt.

(3) Remove engine timing belt (Refer to 9 -

(4) Remove water pump mounting bolts (Fig. 31).
Note position of longer bolt for proper re-installation.

(5) Remove water pump body from engine

I can't seem to find the PCV Valve on the 3.3 litre engine for a 1992 Oldsmobile Ciera.

It is located under the alternator and above the water pump, as you face the engine from the passenger side fender it is to the left of the water pump bypass hose.
