The 1.8L, 1.9L, and 2.0L SOHC engines all require that you remove the timing belt cover and timing belt to acsess the water pump. Only the 2.0L DOHC engine has a water pump that runs directly off the drive belts. You'll probaobly want to go to the library and check out the repair procedure in a hanes manual or buy one at a local auto parts store.

I agree with buying a Haynes or Chiltons. Make sure you know the proper procedures for getting the crankshaft and camshaft timed properly. be sure to budget plenty of time. I took 6 1/2 hours when I did a timing belt and water pump on a 1986 Mazda
