When replacing a water pump, it is necessary to drain the cooling
Any components--belts, fan, fan shroud, shaft spacers, or viscous
drive clutch--should be removed to make the pump accessible. Some pumps
are attached to the cylinder block as shown below.
Installing a water pump. Courtesy of Dana
Loosen and remove the bolts in a crisscross pattern from the center
Insert a rag into the block opening and scrape off any remains of
the old gasket.
When working on the coolant system (for example,
replacing the water pump or thermostat), a certain amount of coolant
will spill on the floor. The antifreeze in the coolant causes it to be
very slippery. Always immediately wipe up any coolant that spills to
reduce or eliminate the chance of injury.
When replacing a water pump, always follow the procedures
recommended by the manufacturer.
Most often a coating of good waterproof sealer should be applied to a
new gasket before it is placed into position on the water pump.
Coat the other side of the gasket with sealer, and position the pump
against the engine block until it is properly seated.
Install the mounting bolts and tighten them evenly in a staggered
sequence to the torque specifications with a torque wrench. Careless
tightening could cause the pump housing to crack. Check the pump to make
sure it rotates freely.
The water pumps on many late-model OHC engines are driven by the
engine's timing belt. When replacing the water pump on these engines,
always replace the timing belt.
Make sure all pulleys and gears are aligned according to
specifications when installing the belt.
u might be able to just remove alt and fan and maybe not. Only other things that might needed to removed is a/c compresser, power steering pump and fan shroud (((you dont have to remove shroud but makes it alot easier)))
look at water pump and look to see what all in way of getting to all the bolts
You can get like a chilton book for the car at autozone for around 20 bucks.This is a rear wheel drive car and the water pump is easy to get to. Remove the belts and remove the fan and where what the fan bolts to is the water pump. remove the hoses and a half dozen bolts and pry it off. And the best part is the water pump at autozone with a lifetime warranty is 30 bucks.
Loosen the bolts on the water pump pulley, then remove the belt, then remove the the 4 pulley bolts on the water pump. Then remove the water pump bolts, I think there's 6 bolts, size 8mm then remove the water pump.
Hey, here's the procedure, disable air bag, if equipped w/ one, disconnect the pump return hose from the reservoir and place the end in a large container. Plug the port in the reservoir. Start the engine and turn the steering wheel lock to lock several times, until fluid stops running from the hose. Turn off engine immediately. Re-attach hose. Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses at the pump. Remove the drive belt. Remove the mounting bolts/nuts and remove pump. Install in reverse order. Adjust belt tension,fill ps reservoir and bleed any air from the system (to bleed air from system, fill reservoir, start engine and allow to idle, turn wheel from side to side all the way several times. Shut off, fill if necessary. . Tighten bolts to : Thru bolt 30 ft lbs., mounting nut 16 ft lbs.
if you go to your local library most do carry the manuals and you can copy the info you need.
difficult.. yes. extremely difficult...no
if you decide to do it make sure you use 1/2 drive breaker bar on crank pulley if your lower timing cover cannot be moved far enough to access the water pump mounting bolts. also make sure you don't turn the timing gear when removing the belt or replacing it.
hope this will help you.
