Be aware that while replacing the water pump if the chain tensioner moves out you will get a "whine" and the front cover will need to be removed to reset the tensioner. I mention this because a friend of mine is a GM tech and understands the consequences of having the tensioner extend and he says that he still occasionally has to reset it.

Get it out to DFW and I'll very enthusiastically do it for $850

IT WAS $1000 FOR A TOP-NOTCH 2-YEAR GUARANTEE WATER-PUMP REPLACEMENT AT HENRY BROWN BUICK / GMC IN CHANDLER, MOST BUICK / GMC DEALERS STILL WORK ON PONTIACS.

Can anyone recommend an experienced mechanic to replace a water pump ?
I am in Orange County, Ca. I was quoted 850.00 by a local shop and he didn't sound enthused to do the work.

I'm having the dealer do it. with the GXP, it is not the quick fix a lot make it out to be. and thet also found a small leak near the thermostat so, they're doing that too. Not cheap but,I think it's one of the few jobs that should be left to the dealer. Cheers
