Do you have step by step instruction on how to replace a water pump on a 2002 Chrysler Sebring convertible?


REMOVAL - 2.7L

NOTE: It is normal for the water pump to weep a small amount of coolant from the weep hole (black stain at weep passage). Do not replace the water pump if this condition exists. Replace the water pump if a heavy deposit or a steady flow of engine coolant is evident on side of the cylinder block from the weep hole passage (shaft seal failure). Be sure to perform a thorough analysis before replacing water pump.

WARNING: DO NOT REMOVE PRESSURE CAP WITH THE SYSTEM HOT AND PRESSURIZED. SERIOUS BURNS FROM COOLANT CAN RESULT.

Disconnect negative battery cable.
Drain cooling system (Refer to 7 - COOLING/ENGINE - STANDARD PROCEDURE).

NOTE: The water pump is driven by the primary timing chain.
Remove the timing chain cover, timing chain, and all chain guides


Remove upper intake manifold. (Refer to 9 - ENGINE/MANIFOLDS/INTAKE MANIFOLD - REMOVAL)
Remove cylinder head covers, crankshaft vibration damper, and timing chain cover. (Refer to 9 - ENGINE/CYLINDER HEAD/CYLINDER HEAD COVER(S) - REMOVAL) (Refer to 9 - ENGINE/ENGINE BLOCK/VIBRATION DAMPER - REMOVAL) (Refer to 9 - ENGINE/VALVE TIMING/TIMING BELT / CHAIN COVER(S) - REMOVAL)

CAUTION: When aligning timing marks, always rotate engine by turning the crankshaft. Failure to do so will result in valve and/or piston damage.
Align crankshaft sprocket timing mark to mark on oil pump housing (TIMING MARK ALIGNMENT). The mark on oil pump housing is 60 degrees ATDC of #1 cylinder.

CAUTION: When the timing chain is removed and the cylinder heads are still installed, DO NOT rotate the camshafts or crankshaft without first locating the proper crankshaft position. Failure to do so will result in valve and/or piston damage.
Remove power steering pump and bracket as an assembly. Do not disconnect power steering lines from pump. Reposition pump and support with suitable retaining strap.
Remove primary timing chain tensioner retainer cap and tensioner from right cylinder head (PRIMARY TIMING CHAIN TENSIONER).
Disconnect and remove camshaft position sensor from left cylinder head (TIMING DRIVE SYSTEM - PRIMARY).
Remove timing chain guide access plugs from cylinder heads (TIMING DRIVE SYSTEM - PRIMARY).

NOTE: When camshaft sprocket bolts are removed, the camshafts will rotate in a clockwise direction.
Starting with the right camshaft sprocket, remove the sprocket attaching bolts. Remove camshaft damper (if equipped) and sprocket (TIMING DRIVE SYSTEM - PRIMARY).
Remove left side camshaft sprocket attaching bolts and remove sprocket (TIMING DRIVE SYSTEM - PRIMARY).
Remove lower chain guide and tensioner arm (TIMING DRIVE SYSTEM - PRIMARY).
Remove the primary timing chain.

This is the proceedure from the chrysler shop manual if you have any problems let me know. Do yourself a favor and avoid potential bent valves!!!

REPLACE THE PRIMARY CHAIN TENSIONER ASSEMBLY, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME ATTEMPTING TO RESET IT, IT DOESN'T ALWAYS WORK.

TEE fiting that join hoses on smog pump keeps melting every few miles, Already have changed smog pump with new one from dealer, and problem came right back. I was told then that problem was electrical...


With melting parts that could be an issue with the diverter valve, but the electrical issue adds a new complication to the deal. I'll have to admit, my experience with SMOG systems is limited. I don't know exactly how that shop did your electrical test, but unless they did a live test where they measured how much current draw you had during operation of the pump, I don't know how they could draw any conclusions as to if the pump is good or bad. The electrical solenoid as I understand it, is not part of the pump and is there to divert the air to the proper location and then closing during deceleration to prevent backfire. I would think since you are having issues with the fuse and melting hoses, that your diverter valve/solenoid is the issue. If none of this information is useful to you, I certainly wouldn't hold it against you to ask for a refund for this service and seek help from another member. If the information is useful, I am glad, and ask that you don't forget to rate.

How do i change a waterpump on a 2001Volkswagen cabrio?


Your Cabrio has one of several 2.0L Volkswagen engines - determine your engine type from the
8th digit of your VIN, which will be either an "A", or "C",both are 2.0L engines.

Volkswagen 2.0L engines offered in 2001:
(a) 2.0L (Aba) Engine
(b) 2.0L (Aeg/Avh/Azg/Bdc/Bev/Bgd) Engine
(c) 2.0L (Aeg/Avh/Azg/Bdf) Engine

For completeness, I've included the water pump maintenance manual entries for all (3) 2.0L VW
engines offered in 2001. Note that the instructions below include (3) illustrations, which are
reproduced faithfully from the manual, but the last (2) illustrations are identical, since the last two
engines in the list above are virtually identical.

I have a toyota the need a timing belt


The belt should be replace at 90,000 miles on the V6. The water pump should also be replaced as it is driven by the cam belt. The procedure to replace the belt and water pump is far too complicated to try and explain on this forum. You need photos and detailed instruction. If you wish to tackle this yourself I suggest you purchase a Chilton's repair manual for you car. It will have detailed instructions with photos of how to replace the cam belt and water pump.

How do i change the water pump on a 96 dodge intrepid


If its a 2.7L, you have to remove the intake and valve covers. You 'll have to remove the radiator core support and radiator. You'll have to remove the drive belts and balancer. Then you remove the timing cover and make sure the timing chains are lined up. The water pump is located in the middle of the front of the engine behind the timing cover. This job really isn't a good thing to attempt if your a basic home mechanic. This is a very complicated job. If the timing chains aren't lined up perfectly, you can bend every valve in the engine on start up. Then it gets expensive.

I need to remove the water pump on a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am. What is neccesary to remove the front timing chain cover? I have the instructions to remove the water pump, but it involves removing the front...


Just to clarify i asked what size motor was in his car. The reason for that statement that removing the timing cover ,chain and exhaust wasent required to change the water pump is that on 3.4 V6 engines none of that is required. To change the water pump in my car ( 99 grand am gt 3.4L) all you need to do is remove serpentine belt, remove the 4 bolts holding on the water pump pulley, then remove the 5 water pump retaining bolts and it out. Then you just need t remove any traces of the old gasket clean the surface put a new gasket on following it with the new water pump torque the 5 retaining bolts , water pump pulley torque its 4 bolts put the serpentine belt back on fill and bleed the coolant system and your done. All the work done easily from the top of the motor without any special tools. It took me a hour and a half. So there is a huge difference in changing water pumps on a 4 cylinder engine and a 6 cylinder engine this is why I asked what engine he had in his car.
