Thank you for this information. What I was really trying to ask is how do you get to the water pump? I can see it but I do not know all that it takes to get it out. I cannot find a shop manual for this make and model. Do you have to remove the fender well and/or the top motor mount on the passenger side?

I honestly never replaced a water pump on that car I have done other thing's on the car but never replaced a water pump. If you wanted more room you could put a floor jack under the oil pan with a block of wood between the jack and the oil pan to support the engine. Then remove the upper mount and jack the engine up a little.

Good news! We learned that the water pump and thermostat are covered up to 100,000 miles under warranty. It looks like I won't have to do the work myself this time. Again, thank you for all of the help.
