In the old times, the water pumps could be rebuilt with new bushings and seals. But that was long ago and you would be lucky to find any kits today.

If your vehicle is not leaking at the water pump, the newer vehicles use Electric cooling fans to help the water pump keep the heat down. If there is no leak or rattle in the water pump, your problem may be in the Electric cooling fans.

These fans are Temperature controlled, have fuses, and Relays and everything must work for the fans to spin.

If your water pump leaks, it must be replaced with a different pump. There are CD's on the procedure and some "How to" books at major autoparts stores. Many parts are Aluminum, so do not reef when tightening the bolts. Also check the length of each removed bolt so that the lengths are not mixed. You can destroy an engine block by installing the wrong bolt in the wrong place.

Please rate my info.

How to fix a noisy water pump on a grand jeep Cherokee 2007 3.00 deseil


a noisy water pump ( low growl or rumble noise) is a problem bearing and the cheapest fix is a new water pump
squeaks or other high pitched noises can be tested with soapy water on the belt--noise will stop for a short period of time
If the water pump housing is cast iron, you may be able to get a repair kit for the pump but the cost of the kit and the labor to do the job is generally around the price of a new pump

Over heating , antifreeze leeking from that water


Hello,

If your water pump is leaking from the water pump for sure that is causing your over heating problem. I am sure that most likely the seal is gone. There is a main seal in the pump, and those are normally the first to go, and you are better off replacing the whole pump, that trying to fix it. Once your water pump is replaced , the over heating problem should be fixed. If pump is leaking it does not have the pressure provided to have the antifreeze and water to flow correctly through engine block and radiator.

Thanks Mike

Does a water pump on a 2006 Prius that is "leaking" via the weep hole indicate that the pump needs to be changed asap or is this something that should be eventually addressed? BTW: the converter...


Hi, leaking via weep hole indicates the water pump seal is bad....pump is shot. I would consider this an urgent fix. Any coolant leak is an urgent fix......MIke

How do i take out the wter pump offf 2001 stratus? It seems like you have to practicly take the engine out of the car to take replace it


The water pumo is located behind the timing belt cover youll have to remove the timing belt to replace it. The 2.4 engine is similar to the 2.0 Neon motor. It wasn't a quick and easy job but doable if you have a puller for the crank pulley and patience.

You will be working under the right front wheel well a lot. And like mentioned above - get a repair manual. You'll need to re-tension the timing belt.

Remove radiator and fan and anything that will block you from getting to the water pump. I suggest take pictures of each step that you disconnected all parts getting to the water pump and the removal of the water pump with a digtal camera and take the pump to the parts dealer so that you get an exact match.

Next read the instructions that come with the pump. Clean all old gasket and glue off of the place where you will install the new water pump (take your last picture you take and reverse the order and reinstall the gasket/sealer and water pump and all other parts).

Use a tork wrench on the bolts, add water and anti-freeze to the radiator and start the car and look for leaks.

Hope this helps.
