Tinaray: I hate to be the one to tell you where the water pump is on this engine. Unfortunately they couldn't have thought of a worst design. It is located near the bottom of the motor on the exhaust side. It is driven by the timing chain and there is a fair amount of work involved in replacing it. Based on ALLDATA, the flat rate GM has supplied for this job is 7.5 hours on a car like yours with A/C.
Few cars come without A/C. It is figured as a skill level "B" job.
If you do not do this for a living, it may be best left for a professional to deal with.

96 Sunfire overheating after replacing radiator, pump, thermostat

Do you did you take out the rad. or have a shop do it for you. Your problem sounds more like the rad is not the right size for your car. The difference is very slight. The rad for a 4 CYL And the 6 CYL look very much alike. they even interchange with one another. But if your car has the V6 and you are running a 4 cyl. rad you may run hot like this. Now if that is NOT THE CASE, IF THAT IS NOT THE CASE >. You still have air in the rad. Open the drain port a small bit remove the rad cap, start up the engine and let it run till it reaches temp -- tighten the drain port and refill the rad, and the overflow to full. try all that and God Bless.

Water Pump Replacement

Follow your fan belt - it goes around the water pump pulley. Can be done at home with a little mechanical abilty and tools - not real fun - some of the bolts are a little hard to get to
