Not sure why all other parts removed? Locate the water pump by following the lower radiator hose to the motor...the connection is part of the water pump housing...Also look at the replacement water pump to see what few bolts need to be removed to switch the pump. Be sure to use a water pump gasket sealer when applying the new water pump gasket...coat both sides as this also helps to hold in place while re-assembling. Reconnect all hoses and clamps...install the belt before testing...Talk with your local parts store also...the water pump usually comes with a replacement diagrahm too. Hope this helps.

    You can go on-line for some helpful hints, and diagrams on what to do...The illustrations can help you to identify the parts...may be to a point where you need to hire a mechanic to straighten it all out...Why changing the pump? Leaking, or overheating? Could be just tje radiator cap...

SOURCE: changing water pump on 1994 nissan quest

There is no easy way, water pumps are hard to change on this vehicle. Before starting the job I would buy a repair manual with step by step instructions. To give you some idea on how long it may take, the labor time is 4.5 hours for an experienced tech.

SOURCE: 1997 Nissan Pickup 4 cyl radiator replacement

Basic mechanical experience is all you need. Remove the intake tube, fan, fan shroud, upper and lower hoses and it comes right out. I think you can do the whole job with a 10mm wrench and a phillips screwdriver. (Maybe a couple other tools, but no special ones.) Be sure to get a 1" core radiator and not the stock 1/2" core, for added cooling capacity.

Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

To replace the water pump, the front engine timing belt would need to be removed. This is a very big job and should be done by someone who is familiar with how timing belt jobs are done.

Thanks Jay!

SOURCE: How do you fix the water pump on a 1997 nissan

The water pump is located behind the timing chain cover. There are two black plates on the front cover. The one near the front of the car has the water pump behind it. The other one has the timing chain tensioner behind it. First you must drain the coolant. Then support engine and remove engine mount. Then remove drive belts. Then remove the two black plates. Push the tensioner in and lock it with a paper clip. Then remove the two bolts holding the tensioner and remove tensioner. Then remove the water pump bolts. Rotate engine crankshaft the take tension off of water pump (about 20 degrees). Then install two bolts into water pump threaded flange (M8). Tighten M8 evenly as water pump will come without damaging it. Check for corrosion. Then replace with new one. Make sure you use new "O" rings. Lubricate with engine oil. Put the original three bolts back in the water pump. Then install timing chain tensioner and black covers. Replace belts and engine mounts. Add coolant and pressure test system.

SOURCE: Does the nissan quest 1999 timing belt needs to be

The Quest has a non interference engine meaning that should the belt break the engine would just die without breaking anything. Nissan recommends 105K for changing but that depends on the way the vehicle was driven (driving habits), road conditions etc. If driving on roads for e.g. that are hilly, it labors the engine more thus shortens the lifespan of the belt according to mfg.

Usually, replacement pump will come with wiring instructions. If dumbo lost them, might go to friendly parts store and ask to look at chart in another one, or simply look at wiring diagram in your shop manual.

2001 nissan quest alternator voltage


If the car is running and hasnt died or had any hard starts you probably just have a belt tensioner or pulley problem. You can read the charging voltage off the battery with a multimeter and should see a a change from ~12 volts to about 13-14 volts.
