Talk with your local parts store about an "e z out" drill bit you can buy, you need to guestimate the size. Also be sure to thoroughly spray bolt area with PB Blaster to lubricate and stop further broken bolts. Hope this helps.

Where is the water pump located? I had something blow and its leaking raidaitor fluid around pully system? What do I need to take apart to find the water pump?


Your fan & pulley are bolted to the waterpump. You need to remove plastic fan schrod, then fan, pulley, belt then you will see waterpump bolted to front of engine. Stop by any good parts store, have them look up waterpump and show you what it looks like. Then you'll know what to look for.

Procedure on changing waterpump


  1. first drain the cooling system.
  2. loosen bolts on the waterpump pulley and remove the inner fender cover on the pass/side.
  3. remove the surpentine fan belt, note; make a diagram of the belt routing so belt will go back on the right way.
  4. remove the bolts you loosened on the pump pulley, use a pry bar to pry engine back to have enough room to remove the waterpump pulley.
  5. remove the bolts holding waterpump, you will want a pan under the van to catch coolant when waterpump is removed,
  6. remove the pump and clean old gasket off the block and install new pump,
  7. reverse to install new pump and fill system with coolant allow engine to run until thremostat opens,hope this is helpful. heres a few diagrams of the waterpump and the cover and the belt routing, good luck and hope this is helpful.

How to replace a waterpump on a 1999 chevy lumina?


The waterpump is located on passenger side of the car. Its location if you were standing looking from the passenger side at the engine is at the top right of the engine.There is a pully at the top of the engine that has 4 10mm headed bolts should be a non grooved pully.Loosen the bolts on that pully with the belt on once you loosen these bolts but do not remove them just yet.Using a 3/8 drive ratchet find the belt tensioner and release the belt making sure you remember the belt routing.Typically the the belt routing is printed on a plastic shroud that is just above the waterpump. Once you have removed the belt take out the 4 bolts that you previously loosened.Remove that pully now and the waterpump is right behind that. Sometimes the pully sticks a bit so you may need to put something behind it to gently dislodge it.There are 5 bolts on the waterpump the head of these bolts are 5/16 or 8mm remove the the five bolts using a quarter inch drive ratchet.Once this is done you may need to dislodge the pump.A dead blow hammer works well or a block of wood and a hammer could be used in a pinch.This should not require alot of force.Just a few taps should do it you are just breaking the gasket seal at this point.Now that the old pump is removed the old gasket needs to be removed from the waterpump housing. make sure all old gasket material is removed so the new one will seal properly.Take out the replacement pump and and line the new gasket on the waterpump once you have done this remove the gasket so you can adhere the gasket in place with a thin coat of rtv or weatherstrip adhesive.Now you ready to reverse the process to put it back on.Just make sure to line up the five bolt holes and your ready to go. Hope this helps.

This is called your waterpump, you need to have the vehicle towed to a repair shop and have it replaced. If you want phone around to get quotes on the job, just ask them how much it would be to replace the "waterpump".
