SOURCE: Water pump on 2005 Chevy Equinox

Water pump is locate on the front center of the engine.

I will rate water pump change as a 7/10 in difficulty scale.

You should check for special tool(s) requirement from the library before you start.

It's a good time to change the drive belt at the same time.

50/50 coolant mix is fine.

If you haul heavy load or in cold climate then bump it up to 60/40 mix

DO NOT FORGET to find or draw the belt routing diagram before you undo the tension.

A 30 second sketch will save you a lot of time.

SOURCE: 2005 chevy equinox overheating..

I can almost guarantee you have a blown head gasket. I had all of these symptoms too. Bubbles in the antifreeze resevior when cool, loosing antifreeze when driven and finally smell and white smoke out the exhaust. Even a pressure check of the radiator came out fine. This seems to be a common problem with the 05 Equinox due to aluminum heads. Cost me about $1600 to fix but the new gaskets are supposed to be made to withstand the expanding of the aluminum heads. Good luck!

SOURCE: need to flush cooling system of a 2005 chevy

You can buy a flush kit from your local auto supply store to add to your cooling system for this and future flushing. As for changing your thermostat - simply remove the thermostat housing - remove the old thermostat - replace with new (be sure it is the one rated for the season at hand) - replace gaskets (or use RTV gasket maker) and reinstall housing. Fill the system with proper % ratio of coolant to water (usually 50/50). Drive away happy.:) PS You can find your thermostat housing by following the top rad hose from the rad back to it at the intake manifold.

Engine light has come on and the thermosat is not working properly


The engine light is probably on just because of the thermostat. Try with a thermostat you know is in order. If it works, change the thermostat.
