Changing Water Pump

Does anyone know where online I can get step by step instructions to change a water pump on a 2000 Chevrolet Venture V-6? Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Go to www.alldata.com and purchase a subscription. Alldata is the same info garages use and if you are going to have the vehicle for a while, it'll pay for itself.

It will probably be driven by the timing belt since it's a front whell drive van, which is going to be a long and somewhat complicated process.

I agree, AllData is much better then a Chilton or Haynes, but make sure you have a fast printer or a computer in the garage.
