I am trying to replace the water pump in my 96 chrysler concorde 3.5L car, I am trying to remove the timing belt cover took out all the bolts but I think I have to remove the big gear in the middle (sorry don't know what it is called. Is that right do I have to remove it and is that what I make the timing marks on? I can't find anything on it, it just shows what inside the cover. Any help would be great. thanks

    cause it's under the timing plate cover.

  • lvtuxgirl Jan 07, 2009

    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.

    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.

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.
