REMOVE BELTS FROM FRONT OF ENGINE, REMOVE COVER ON TIMING BELT, REMOVE TIMING BELT AFTER MARKING THE WHEELS WITH THE ARROWS ON THE CAM SHAFT WHEELS. WATER PUMP IS LOCATED AT BOTTOM HOSE HOUSING IT IS A COMPLETE UNIT INCLUDING CASTING. EASY TO FIT REPLACE ALL PART AND MAKE SURE TIMMING BELT IS NOT OUT OF SEQUENCE GOOD LUCK.

SOURCE: water leak

I would suggest putting in a new water pump. You could take the existing one off and try to seal it but for me it would make more sense to replace it since you have the old one out. They're not too expensive. Mine was $20. You'll need a tube of high temperature gasket sealer to go around the edges of the new pump. Also, make sure you use the gasket that is with the new pump. Hope this helps ya.

SOURCE: i was just wundering could i fit a 2ltr turbo exhaust

you may be able to from the converter back, maybe???? if the turbo pipe is the same diameter and the flange size. Of course, a muffler shop could make any modifications to make it fit. one thing you want to keep is that it all bolts together where it does now, So you can unbolt it for service.........Dont let them weld everything together.

Wheres the fuel pump on a 1992 impreza import?


It is in tank. Take out back seat squabs and rear luggage carpet. There should be a removeable panel usually black on the floor. the pump and sender are under this. Change pump for a Walbro 255 LpH but leave the original filter sock. It is better than the Walbro one.

1996 impreza turbo over heats when engine turns off replaced thermostat already


Some / Most turbo vehicles have some sort of auxiliary or main ELECTRIC water pump that will circulate coolant around in the engine a little while whilst the electric cooling fans go to work passing air over the radiator.

Reason for this (among other things) is the oil and gets so dang hot in these motors trying to keep the turbo bearing(s) from seizing, and the oil wicks away a tremendous amount of heat during this time.

Maybe the circuitry to cool the engine down nominally after you shut the motor off is afoul?

Impreza 2000 turbo uk model


Yes, there IS a known oiling problem:

Subaru TSB 02-103-07
Applicability: All Turbo Equipped Vehicles
Subject: Turbocharger Oil Supply Mesh Screen
http://store.forcedperformance.net/merchant2/graphics/subaru_oil/02-103-07.pdf

"... If clogged or restricted, it will reduce or cut off oil supply to the turbo, resulting in failure. ..."

Your turbo may be toast! ***ouch!***
I have found more info on 2004 - 2007 models, but may or may not be applicable to your 2000 Impreza. I am not familiar with the the UK model differences, but if yours has AVCS use your favorite internet search engine to search for "Subaru AVCS" or "Subaru TSB". Good luck!
