    Well, it's a 96 chrysler concorde 3.5L, it tells and shows the water pump under the timing plate cover and you are to remove the timing belt first and replace it. I looked it up on autozone auto repair guide. but still confused about the cover thing.

    water pumps are an external part. they have hoses going to them and a pulley on the front of it. so are you sure that you are replacing the water pump and not something else?

  • Thomas Jan 07, 2009

    the only thing that is under that cover is the timing gears for the cranksaft and the camsaft. i think you should find another guide to follow by because there is no water pump under the timiing cover

  • Thomas Jan 07, 2009

    when you look at the motor and the radiator there will be two hoses coming off the radiator. one on the left and it goes into the radaitor on the bottom passenger side and the second hose is on the right it goes to the top of the radiator drivers side. they should be about 1 1/4 to 2 inch in diameter. follow the one on the passenger side. it will lead you to the water pump.

  • Thomas Jan 08, 2009

    the best way to make sure to gets done right is to buy a repair manual and i am sorry about telling you that you were wrong with where the water pump was, i have never seen or worked on a motor that is set up like that.

  • Thomas Jan 08, 2009

    the marks are either going to be white dots, indented circles, indented triangles. if not either one of these then there will be some kind of mark the you will be able to indentify as the timing marks. yes you can do it yourself as long as it doesnt say that you need a special tool that you cant get from the parts store and then maybe you can borow it from the local shop but normally you can do it pretty easily yourself.



    thanks and good luck

You have to pull the harmonic balancer off to be able to remove the timing cover.you will have to buy or rent a harmonic balancer puller.plus you should replace the timing belt seeing that you already have the motor tore apart,the water pump is driven by the timing belt.not a very hard job but time consuming hope that this is helpful to you

Where is the water pump on a 1995 Chrysler Concorde


The water pump is driven by the timing belt, so the front of the engine must come off, including radiator, fans, belts, pulleys, timing belt cover, etc. the timing belt removed (making sure cams do not rotate, water pump can then be changed. 4 bolts on it to be removed. The water pump is driven by the backside of the timing belt. The pump is buried deep in the front of the engine.

2004 chrysler 300m 3.5L waterpump location and does it run off the timing belt/chain


Yes the water pump does run of the timing belt system.
Directly from the service manual:

The 3.5L water pump has a die cast aluminum
housing and a plastic swept vane impeller. It bolts
directly to the right rear timing belt cover using an
O-ring for sealing. The water pump is
driven by the engine timing belt.

REMOVAL
The water pump on all models can be replaced
without discharging the air conditioning system.
WARNING: DO NOT REMOVE PRESSURE CAP
WITH THE SYSTEM HOT AND UNDER PRESSURE
BECAUSE SERIOUS BURNS FROM COOLANT CAN
OCCUR.

NOTE: It is normal for the water pump to weep a
small amount of coolant from the weep hole (black
stain on water pump body). Do not replace the
water pump if this condition exists. Replace the
water pump if a heavy deposit or a steady flow of
engine coolant is evident on water pump body from
the weep hole (shaft seal failure). Be sure to perform
a thorough analysis before replacing water
pump.

(1) Drain cooling system (Refer to 7 - COOLING -
STANDARD PROCEDURE).

(2) Remove accessory drive belts (Refer to 7 -
COOLING/ACCESSORY DRIVE/DRIVE BELTS -
REMOVAL).

NOTE: The water pump is driven by the timing belt.

(3) Remove engine timing belt (Refer to 9 -
ENGINE/VALVE TIMING/TIMING BELT AND
SPROCKETS - REMOVAL).

(4) Remove water pump mounting bolts (Fig. 31).
Note position of longer bolt for proper re-installation.

(5) Remove water pump body from engine

PT Cruiser Timing chain and water pump problems removing


It's a pain to get out I just did mine belt and water pump it took about 3 times as long as I thought.
Make sure all the bolts are loose, make sure you have removed the tranmission mount as it gives you more room to move the engine. It's suggest you take the exhaust off as well as you can damage it if you jack the engine up too high. Lossen the bolts on the motor mount across from that plate, you will not be able to remove the motor mount but you can spin it allowing you to get that big plate out.

Where is the water pump located on a 1997 chrysler concord


You should take it to a shop and have a pressure test done on it. If it's a 3.3, it only takes about 30 min. to put a water pump on. If it's a 3.5 style engine, you have to take the timing cover off to replace the water pump. You also have to replace the timing belt.
