Go to autozone.com. They have repair manuals online. I checked and they do have one for your vehicle. All you have to do is register on the site.

If it's a 3.1 like the one I had in a '95 Lumina, it'll be the easiest water pump you'll ever change. Just a circle of 5 bolts behind the pulley. No hoses or anything else to remove. Just be sure to open the air bleeder valve on the top of the engine so the block will fill up when you refill it. Hope it's the same and good luck,
Mike

If I am remembering right this is one where you have to jack up the engine and take the motor mount out to get clearence to remove the pump.

It's really easy. Just one of the bolts is part hidden behind the power steering pump pulley. I just did one of these not too terribly long ago. It's quite easy to do. Remove the belt, take out the 5 or so bolts from the old water pump, remove the old water pump, remove all the old gasket material, put the new gasket on the pump with a bold through one of the holes, then line up the pump with the bolt holes on the engine block, replace the bolts, torque them to spec, put the belt back on, and you're good to go. Takes maybe an hour. There is no bleeder valve on that particular engine, so you'll have to keep burping the cooling system until all the air is out.

Every parts store in town probably has it on their shelf.
