Check for ruptured hose or loose clamps. If they look ok your water
pump may need to be replaced.

Where is the waterpump to add coolant and water in santafe 2005?


The water pump is enclosed on the front of the engine. The bottom radiator hose connects to the water pump inlet.
You do not add coolant to the water pump. You add a 50-50 mix of antifreeze and water into the radiator cap opening. Or you can buy the coolant already mixed with water and just pour it into the radiator.

The coolant system uses the water pump to circulate the coolant through the engine and then into the radiator via the upper radiator hose for cooling it off, and it then goes back into the engine through the bottom radiator hose. When the engine is warmed up, the coolant constantly circulates through the engine to radiator and back into the engine.

How can i tell if the water pump is working on a 1997 honda odessey already changed the thermastat


this is a tough one, the waterpump on these engines is to the rear of the engine with its on belt that runs off the rear of the cam. i have seen these waterpump impellers break apart and then the coolant wont circulate and inturn iit overheats,i guess you would need to remove the pump for a good look at it. if you are having an overheating problem and the fans work then i would look at the pump. another test to see if pump is working is to start the engine and keep feeling the top and bottom hoses both should get hot after a while then you can say pump is working but if the bottom hose is warm and it runs hot then i would look at waterpump. good day.

Can see antifreeze leaking down over four wheel drive unit


this can be a couple of different things. firt open the hodd and then start the truck, Keep away from the fan make sure you are not wearing any loose clothing. The waterpump has a wheep hole on it when the berings are giveing out in the pump it will push water threw the weep hole where most of the time down the block onto the transfer case......Other wise look for water comming out of top and bottom raditior hose...If it is a pump this is how to fix it..

1)Drain the coolant.

2)Remove the shroud: 7 - 10mm bolts

3)Remove the fan and clutch: There is no need to separate the fan from the clutch. The whole thing threads on to the end of the water pump. Turning counterclockwise removes the fan, clockwise tightens it back on (from the point of view of standing at the front of the vehicle facing the engine compartment). I don't know the size, because rather than break out all my wrenches, I just grabbed an 18 inch crescent wrench. Place the wrench on the nut and tap loose with a hammer. The tapping will break it loose. You have to tap it, if you just try to loosen it, the belt won't hold it and the whole thing will turn. After it breaks loose just spin it off.

4)Break loose the bolts holding the pulley on: 4- 13 mm or 1/2" bolts. Just break them loose, don't remove them.

5) Remove the serpentine belt.

6) Remove the pulley: Finish removing the bolts holding the pulley and remove the pulley.

7) Disconnect the hoses.

8) Remove the old pump: 4-14 mm or 9/16" bolts.

9) Clean the surface: Remove all traces of the old gasket.

10) Install new pump: Apply a bead of blue Permatex around the holes on both sides of the gaskets, put them on the pump and insert the bolts through the holes to hold the gaskets in place. Carefully lower the pump in to position. Thread the bolts into the block and snug them. Then remove the bolts one at a time, add the permatex to the threads, and then reinsert. (only do one at a time so that the pump doesn't shift and disturb the mating surfaces) Then tighten all the bolts.

11) Reinstall everything in reverse.

There will be a lot of air trapped in the system, so after you fill it, get the engine to operating temperature, shut it off, let it cool, then add more. The air trapped in the system can cause your engine to over heat if left unattended.

I busted my heater hoses fitting, the one behind the waterpump, and i cant get to it. I've taken the waterpump off. what else do I need to remove to get to it or where can I find a diagram


One heater hose runs to the top of the water pump the other one runs to the thermostat housing so I don't understand. If you took the water pump off you should have a tube like stem coming out of the top of the water pump, the heater hose connects to that.

My 98 ford contour keeps overheating i just replaced the radiator and the water pump. And there is no water in the oil. The fans work but it still overheats . What else could be causing it to overheat?


I can't believe anyone would replace the waterpump without also replacing the thermostat. Once overheated, a thermostat is no good anymore. It must be replaced.

But that is not the only possibility. You could have a bad head gasket, without having oil in the water. Only a pressure check can tell. You could also have a collapsing lower hose, as water pump suction causes it to pinch off. You could also have an air bubble from not bleeding it properly when refilling. You could also have a loose waterpump belt. You could have put in the wrong waterpump, as the type for normal V-belts runs the opposite direction of the type for serpentine belts.
There are many more, but that is all I could immediately think of.

Vehicle is 1999 T/C Limited (3.8L, V6) Leaking in 2 places.


Hi Briseno,

Solenoid pack leaking,
Cooler Lines to Radiator leaking,
Timing cover leaking,
They suggest changing the water pump at the same time as the lower rad hose, timing chain, and valve cover gaskets. This is because it either looks like the water pump will die soon, preventative measures, or the shop is trying to rip you off for an hours labor.

Either way, I would suggest taking it to a mechanic, unless you're a bit of a handy man.

Hope I've helped, don't forget to rate.
