Question about 2006 Dodge Ram 2500
Water looks to be coming out of bolt hole behind idler pulley does this go into water jacket ? thanx for any help before tearing this apart kevin
What you are seeing is the water pump (often mistaken as an idler pulley). It is a very simple change. Remove the belt, loosen the two bolts on the water pump ("diamond shape with pulley on front"), pull the water pump out, and reverse steps. You may want to drain your coolant into a very clean or new bucket first or you will loose good coolant when you pull out the pump. Once water pump is in place, replace belt and your good to go. Tools needed : Belt removal tool or 3/8 inch drive/ratchet with extra long hangle or cheater bar, and i believe a 10 or 13 mm socket for the pump. NAPA carrys a lifetime warranty pump...i suggest it.

First do a pressure test to find the exact location of the leak. Sounds like a bolt fell out, but more likely the water pump bearing is shot. If this has overheated a few times you could have major probs with the head probs!! But these engines are almost bullet proof! Let me know how it goes. Frankster016
