There is only 4 bolts that hold the pump to the block If you have the 4 bolts removed then hit the hub that the water pump pulley goes on with a hammer. some times you may have to hit it 3 or 4 good whacks. Hope this helps.

How to replace a thermostat on a1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 3.1 v6


you may be able to take off the water housing by taking the front bolt out and loosening the rear, but its TOUGH to get too. A repair shop can do it for you. I replace them if I have the intake manifold off for any reason. check if intake gaskets are leaking,(common), then you need them replaced and the thermostat is easy to replace at that time.

How do you replace power steering belts?


Nice ride!! An oldie, but goodie. Should be easy to change the power steering belt on this one. Just loosen the mounting bolt and the adjusting bolt and push the pump toward the engine. That will loosen tension and allow you to remove the belt. Put the new belt on and move the pump out away from engine. You may have use something as a lever to help put the proper tension on, and while holding tension, tighten the mounting and adjustment bolts down. Proper tension is 1/4" deflection at the midway point on the belt. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Water pump


On the 3.4.... Drain coolant, remove drive belt guard, loosen pulley bolts, remove drive belt, remove pulley, remove water pump. Good idea to check the belt for cracks or wear when doing the pump replacement. Reverse the procedure to install.
