Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
Besides Pump, oil and gasket what else do I need?
Don't forget to disable the engine and crank it till you have oil pressure it only takes running it a minute without pressure to destroy the rod and main bearings be sure to use the correct oil when changing the pump consult a service manual Industry practice was to use assembly lube to prime the oil pumps on installation but with the use of more and more aluminum and lighter oils some engines manufacturers do not recommend priming the pump this way i suggest immerse the oil pickup tube in clean oil and spin the pump shaft till you draw oil to the top of the pump

NO dont drop tank, you will be sorry, take bed off, only like 6 or 8 bolts, and you will have more room to work, and its a pain in the *** to undo the lines and drop the tank, you cant get in there to do it, but just basic tools nothing special, be sure and try not to make any sparks while takein off that ring to get the pump out, and put an ac delco pump on there

The fuse is actually a Relay Switch and its located in the Fuse Relay Center on the driverside of the engine compartment. The Black Box is labled Fuse Relay Center, the diagram on the cap displays which Relay is the Fuel Pump relay...the Relay switch is usually $8-$15 depending on where you shop

I suggest that you visit the autozone.com website and register the vehicle. It doesn't cost anything and will give you access to an online repair manual. The steps for replacing the water pump should be available there. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Remove or disconnect the following:
Air outlet duct Coolant Inlet radiator hose from the water pump Upper fan shroud Cooling fan and clutch assembly Drive belt Radiator outlet hose from the coolant pump Surge tank hose Heater hose Water pump
DO NOT use cooling system seal tabs (or similar compounds) unless otherwise instructed. The use of cooling system seal tabs (or similar compounds) may restrict coolant flow through the passages of the cooling system or the engine components. Restricted coolant flow may cause engine overheating and/or damage to the cooling system or the engine components/assembly.
Install or connect the following:
Water pump. Install the water pump bolts. Tighten the water pump bolts first pass to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm); tighten the bolts final pass to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). Water pump drive belt pulley and bolts (if applicable). Tighten the pulley bolts first pass to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm); tighten the bolts final pass to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm). Surge tank hose Heater hose Outlet radiator hose to the coolant pump Drive belt Cooling fan and clutch assembly Upper fan shroud Inlet radiator hose to the water pump Air inlet duct Coolant
