The water pump is located on the passanger side of the engine. Look right below the timing chain cover and there is a pully and belt on the water pump. You will have to remove the water pump and thermostate together then seperate them after you get them off the car. I would recommend replacing the thermostate also (cheap fix). You will have to remove the belt and pully before you can remove the water pump. Hope this helps....

SOURCE: Hi, I have a 2001 nissan

hi. was just looking at your problem of (sentra) overheating and actually, i am a mechanic for nissan and have changed many head gaskets for this particular vehicle equipped with 1.8 liter motor and found that they are notorious for this problem of faulty head gasket's.Unless you did't properly bleed the system,which i doubt because you seem mechanically inclined since you already changed every other part of the system,i would't doubt that this is the problem.Anyway, by the time you read this, you have probably already found this out..Just thought i would let you know this info.Good luck!...by the way,if you haven't already changed you cam and crank sensors,do that too,before you get stuck and get the part's at the dealer!!!!-they are redesigned from the old one's!!just some advise to try to help you out!!!

sounds like you have a thermostat problem also did you bleed the cooling system of all the air before you put the radiator cap on?
if you have not bleed the system and there is a air lock you will have over heating problems.
the way you can try bleeding the car is let it get up to temp with the rad cap off and let the fans cycle twice and wate till all the air bubbles stop stop coming out.
if the air dosn't stop coming out for a long long time you may have a blown head gasket

It you're losing coolant and it overheats, that's a sign of a bad head gasket. Get that checked before you spend any more time or money on anything else

Keeps overheating


Hello,

if your car keeps over heating, then it means the fan blowing the radiator is weak or might not be working at all.

Also, your water pump might be damaged, which can cause it to leak water. Put water into the radiator and check under the car to observe if there would be any leak of water.

Make sure the above is checked and fixed because thing overheating problem can damage your gasket which can make your can engine to knock.

Water as to be leaking from somewhere which is making the car overhear frequently.

Good luck.

clean and degreese the engine from the top to the bottom. fill the radiator and start the van let it idle for at least 20 min and look for a leak. if no leak present look at the tail pipe smoke. if smoke is white you have a bad head gasket. Also check oil to see if it"s milky
