    You will need to get a repair manual and verify where you went wrong when you replaced the belt to service the water pump, I am sure the timing marks are not lined up correctly.

Amarilloperr If you have never done this type of repair before then it is probably true that you have installed your serpentine belt on wrong.

Go to the Autozone parts store and ask them for a copy of the diagram to properly install the belt.

I put fuel pump ,crank sensor, fuel filter, tune up and I still do the same start and shut off

Does it have a SECURITY system in it ?
Is the SECURITY Light on or Flashing Sparatickly ?
Any Trouble codes ?
POSSIBLE - * MAF sensor (Mass Air Flow Sensor) has gone BAD causing car to start then shut back off . * Security has kicked in ( Due to changing stereo system or battery went dead or didn't have one on it for a little while .
FIXES - *Replace Mass Air Flow Sensor (in between the throttle and the air filter box) . * Take to Dealer and have computer Flashed/Reset if SECURITY is at Fault . I recommend the MAF sensor

I have 1999 nissan sentra andit has been overheating. I replaced the thermostat and water pump and it is still overheating. What could it be?

You may want to check and see if the ECT (Engine Coolant Sensor) is faulty. It should drive the temperature gauge and if it's bad, it could be telling you that the engine is overheating when it is actually running at normal temprature.

Does a water pump on a 2006 Prius that is "leaking" via the weep hole indicate that the pump needs to be changed asap or is this something that should be eventually addressed? BTW: the converter...

Hi, leaking via weep hole indicates the water pump seal is bad....pump is shot. I would consider this an urgent fix. Any coolant leak is an urgent fix......MIke

I have repair my cooling sytem replaced from top to bottom new radiator,water pump, timebelt, thermostat, and new switch in radiator. but my fan are not running need help why???

These cars have been known to have bad radiator fan relays/condensor fan relay. they're located on drivers side,in small relay box attached to radiatortop support bracket.that relay is also common with several others on car so you could `technically swap out with another identical relay from car for testing purposes.anyways.

Timebelt change

it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer but typically it is recommended to be replaced between 60K - 100K miles. A visual inspection of the belt for cracks, missing teeth, or parting will also help you determine if the belt needs to be replaced.

My 98 chrysler cirrus is lesking water and im told

First open the hood of your car and check where the leak is coming. Thermostat gasket is one source but
it could also come the radiator, radiator hose, or the
water pump. Check all these items, and you can do
the repairs by replacing the defective parts. Except for
water pump that really needs a mechanic to replace the
bearings and the mechanical shaft seal.

How do i locate and change a water pump in a 1995 chevy caprice?

Well the water pump will be mounted directly to the engine block with two large hoses running from it to your radiator.

When you get the new water pump make sure it has new gaskets in there. Should only be a couple of bolts and it comes right off.

Scrape off all of the old gasket from the engine block before you put the new gasket and pump on.

Good luck!

-Captain Jake

PS - Might have to drain your radiator first, it has a little valve at the bottom. And PLEASE make sure the car is cold so your poor husband doesn't burn the **** out himself :D
