When I do those I find it's easier to get some of the stuff out of the way. Fan shroud, Alternator, AC compressor(don't remove AC hoses just swing it over to the side) and the AC/alternator mount bracket. If you don't have the special hose clamp plyers they are worth buying. (those clamps are difficult with regular plyers) The fan clutch has a special wrench which is thinner. When you start the job break loose the fan clutch before you remove the belt. It keeps tension on the pulley. The nut is normal threading and usually comes loose with a sharp rap of the hammer on the fan clutch wrench.
Here is an illustration of the water pump bolts. I hope this helps you out. let me know how it goes.

1st try and search for a vaccum leak, due to the fact that these vehicles have had some bad problems with the length of wires and hoses, if there is a vaccum leak in the vehicle somewhere that will trigger other malfunctions in your vehicle. Using a can of starting fluid or Brake cleaner spray lightly spray around our engine til you hear the motor rev-up and the spot you have sprayed will determine where your vaccum leak will be. And then check under your distributor cap for any moisture be sure to take a rag and wipe and residue off. Also check the firing order on your distributor.

P0344 - "Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Intermittent"
It could only be a glitch if you've received the code only once. Sometimes something as simple as an engine misfire could cause the the sensor to misinterpret a problem. As the camshaft normally has at least two sensors monitoring it, it's unusual that there would be only one sensor indicating a problem.
Firstly, try clearing the code... you can do this by using a code reader which can be purchased for your own use; or by taking your truck to a place like Advance Auto Parts and they'll do it for free. Just do not let people advise you that disconnecting the battery will clear it, often the only thing that does is deactivate the Check Engine light but the code will remain written in the computers RAM until cleared manually.
If the code comes back later after you've had it cleared, or appears multiple times, then there is most likely an issue with the sensor itself (as the code description implies) and will need to be replaced. These sensors are fairly inexpensive, but unless you have mechanical know-how, i'd suggest you let a trusted dealership take care of that. It shouldn't take more than an hour at most to replace it

The pcm (powertrain control module ) is telling you it has a set code in the memory. Take the car to a parts place like (auto zone ) and have them to run a scam on the pcm for a trouble code. Once you have done that then you will be able to correct the problem. Hope this will help you.
