SOURCE: need to replace water pump in 2001 pt cruiser

This is a fairly large job and it should only be done by someone that has some experience with this engine. The fit is very tight in the PT Cruiser and will involve jacking the engine up and down and a lot of screwing around trying to get all of the engine cover bolts out etc.

I would not even attempt to do this job without a good manual.

It is best if you replace the timing belt, belt tensioner, and idler pulleys while the job is being done.

The water pump is in the front of the engine and is run off of the timing belt.

If you look online at this picture: http://img.neons.org/archives/99RTproject7.jpg you will see that it is on the bottom of the engine on the right.

Bring it to a reputable shop that backs their work as it is easy to make a mistake on this job.

Good luck.

SOURCE: 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.

PM dhirst on ptcrew.com if you want some pics or more instructions.

Testimonial: "This didn't help, because you had to remove the engine structural collar under the starter to get at the starter bolt. It was more complicated."

My 2001 pt cruiser limited over heated. It has already had a new radiator and both fans replaced with in the year. Should i now replace the water pump which is the original?


Overheating is caused by:
1. plugged radiator core
2. Wrong mix of water and coolant.
3. Low coolant level.
4. stuck thermostat
5. hoses collapsing.
6. Air lock in system
7. Bad fins on water pump.

From the looks of the diagram it does run the water pump as well so unless you want to replace the head i would park it.

I have a 2001 pt cruiser and recently i had to replace the water pump. now my heat and ac fan will not work. no noise or anything.


See if the compressor clutch engages, check that the inner parts of the belt pulley turns together with the outer part/ belt. If not the clutch circuit or the pressure sensor connector on the pressure tube may have been disconnected during the change of the water pump. Or maybe you just run out of refridgerant? Low pressure --> the compressor runs constantly but no or little cooling effect.

Timing belt replacement on a 2001 pt cruisre


Not for the beginner, I will be doing one on monday. 2001 Twin Cam.

I have been in repair for 30 years, I would not let anyone with less than 5 years experience touch it. This motor has the potential to bend valves if out of time between the cams and crank.

Changing the right side mount too. 10 hours according to the book (all data) and thats for someone that knows how.
