Want a diagram of the timing belt on a 95 pontiac grand prix with a 3.4 v6

The 3.4 is very difficult. If it has the twin cams you will need to have a very clear process worked out for you. One cam needs to be held in place while the other cam is adjusted and requires a special tool to accomplish. If you get it wrong it will run but knock like crazy.

I have a 97 grand am it running very ruff i put plugs , oxygen sensor and has real gas smell

If it has the 2.4l 4cyl "Twin Cam" you most likely need to replace the plastic housing that the ignition coils sit in. These develop hairline cracks and leak spark to the cam towers, which results in a nasty misfire.

Do I have to change my timing belt when I replace the water pump on my 98 Ponitac Grand am 2.4 Liter Twin Cam Engine

If the belt hasn't been changed in a while, it's a good idea to do it while you're in there -- it'll save a lot of labor later -- check owner's manual for belt change interval.
