SOURCE: Water pump removal on a 1996 Buick Riviera (supercharged)

there are two bolts that hold the power steering pump in place that are accesable through the holes in the pulley. If you use a 6" extension and a 1/2" socket you can reach them. this will allow the pump to be removed and hang by the hoses and be out of the way. I was told also to inspect the cam sensor while it is apart because you have to remove the water pump in order to get to it.

SOURCE: 1997 Buick Lesabre Water Pump problem

THE POWER STEERING PUMP PULLEY --- ARRGGH...Not a problem. The power steering pump is held by two bolts. Use a socket and remove the top bolt and loosen the bottom bolt. Be careful not to completely remove the bottom bolt. The PS pump will loosen up enough so that you can push it towards the firewall and you will JUST have enough room to remove the waterpump bolts. Its tight but it will squeeze out.

SOURCE: 1995 Buick LeSabre with a leaking water pump.

The water pump removal is a breeze on this vehicle. First remove your four bolts that hold the pully to the pump, then remove the serpentine belt. Next remove all bolts from water pump, now the fun part, pry the housing of the water pump off gently trying not to nick or gouge the engines placement for the housing. now all you have to do is make sure the housing is clean of all debris or old gasket material, you wouldnt want any of that gunk getting inside. nowplace your gasket properly on new water pump and place on housing. make sure the gasket fits nicely. reinstall pully to water pumy, reinstall your serpentine belt, place new antifreeze, I prefer the peak green full strength, make sure to mix correctly also. start engine let run for 5- 10 minutes and then let cool down and check levels. hope this helps.

I've been told that the intake manifold gasket is leaking antifreeze in my 1996 Buick Skylark. I've been told it will cost about $1000 to fix it. Am I being scammed? How do I know that it is a problem?...

Why did you take your vehivle to the shop in the first place. I would assume you are having stuttering and or hesitation problems from the plugs getting fouled out from the coolant in the motor.In my eyes shops have overhead costs so yes that is expensive but than again no it is not it is a lot of work.

Engin light blinks 15 times. seems light engin is not getting gas when exelerating.

hi. Begin by changing the fuel filter. Also pour a bottle of a fuel additive called seafoam into your tank. This product is excellent and multipurpose. It will dry up water, and clean your fuel system. Once you pour it in drive for about 5 miles and your problem should be solved. If not, have your fuel pump checked. J.

Wife,s 97 buick skylark, 2.4 L., leaking water. need help!!!

I had the same problem a month ago. I thought it was the thermostat, which sits inside the lower water feed tube that runs from the radiator, under the car and up between the engine and trans axle to the thermostat housing and water-inlet housing attached to the water pump. I replaced it and it kept leaking. So I got under the car with a mirror and a light and found that it was leaking from a weep hole in the water pump. This happens when the water pump seal is bad. to replace the water pump you nearly have to take apart the back of the engine and the timing chain cover. The waterpump is mounted at the bottom of the back of the engine and is turned by the timimng chain. It took me two days to fix, and it was not easy. There are a couple of sites that have info, which helped me. It's about a $600 - $900 job if you take it to a repair shop.

Need to figure out why the fuel pump is not turning on in a 1996 buick skylark

it could be two things the fuel pump relay or the fuse for the sending unit and if both of these check out ok it is the pump itself for GM parts you can try or call them at 1-800-292-1032 they sell only GM parts and you can try to see if they have your car listed for diagrams pictures and step by step instructions if your car is not listed then try your local library they have all the car manuals and even copy them for you
