A 250 has a 4 bolt water pump and the 200 has 3 bolts.

Right thanks well I went out to check on the water pump and I couldn't get my hood open. So yeah..
Am I overlooking a hood release on the inside? Cuz I can find the actual lever under the hood but it just won't open.

The 200 has a high mounted starter, and the 250 has a low mounted starter.
You could look under the car on the passenger side for the starter.
