It's on the left side (driver side). It's by the belts. You can't see the water pump from the top side.
If you want to get to the water pump you have to remove the top radiator cross member, the fan assembly, the crank pulley, the timing covers, and the timing belt.

Ok, can you see your timing chain? Your water pump is driven by your primary timing if you follow that chain, it will run you right into your water pump. if you understand cars then these instructions should help you...

2.7L Engine

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
  • Negative battery cable
  • Upper radiator crossmember
  • Fan module
  • Accessory drive belts
  • Crankshaft damper, timing chain cover, timing chain and all guides
  • Water pump mounting bolts
  • Water pump
4. Clean the water pump mounting surfaces.

  1. Install or connect the following:
    • Water pump and gasket and torque the bolts to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm)
    • Guides, timing chain and timing chain cover
    • Crankshaft damper and torque the center bolt to 125 ft. lbs. (170 Nm)
    • Accessory drive belts
    • Fan module and upper radiator crossmember
    • Negative battery cable
  2. Fill the cooling system to the proper level.
  3. Start the vehicle, check for leaks and repair if necessary.
3.2L & 3.5L Engines
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Drain the cooling system. WARNING Do not use pliers to open the plastic drain.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:NOTE It is good practice to turn the crankshaft until the No. 1 cylinder is at Top Dead Center (TDC) of its compression stroke (firing position).
  • Coolant recovery cap and open the thermostat bleed valve
  • Drive belts
  • Timing belt
  • Water pump mounting bolts, noting the position of the longer bolt
  • Water pump. Discard the O-ring seal.
  1. Clean the gasket sealing surfaces, being careful not to scratch the aluminum surfaces.

To install:
  1. Install or connect the following: WARNINGRotate the pump and check for freedom of movement.
    • New O-ring and wet with clean coolant prior to installation. Be sure to keep the new O-ring free of any oil or grease.
    • Water pump with a new O-ring. Torque the water pump-to-engine bolts to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
    • Timing belt
    • Drive belts
  2. Fill the cooling system by performing the following procedure:
    1. Close the radiator drain.
    2. Open the thermostat bleed valve. Install a1/4 in. (6mm) clear hose about 48 in. (1.2m) long to the end of the bleed valve and the other end into a clean container. The intent is to keep coolant off of the drive belt(s).
    3. Slowly, refill the coolant recovery bottle until a steady stream of coolant flows out of the thermostat bleed valve. Gently squeeze the upper radiator hose until all of the air is removed from the system.
    4. Close the bleed valve and continue to fill the coolant recovery bottle to the proper level. Install the cap on the bottle and remove the hose from the bleed valve.
  3. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperatures.
  4. Check the cooling system for leaks and correct coolant level. WARNING Be sure that the thermostat bleed valve is closed once the cooling system has been bled of any trapped air.
if you need pictures, go to and search water pump in the repair guides after you select your car type, it's all right there.

Where can I fine the engine number of the KIA Sportage 1997?

Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) stamped on metal plate located on left side of dash panel. The VIN is also stamped into passenger side of engine compartment bulkhead or driver's side of dash panel, visible from outside of windshield.

Engine number is stamped on engine block just below the cylinder head at front near timing belt, just below the manifold, sorry I forgot which side.

Where is my alternator located at

open your engine compartment hood and swing the support arm up and into the slot made for it in the hood. Standing on the passenger side, the alternator is toward the firewall, under the windshield wiper motor assembly and attached to the engine. It will be a lot more visible if you remove the foam rubber seal that runs along the top of the body that runs from right to left of the back underside of the engine compartment hood when it is closed. Just lift it off of the lip it is resting on. Then remove the plastic cover that also runs the complete back side to side length of the engine compartment. carefully pull the cover piece up out of each of the metallic spring clips that is holding it in place. With these two items removed and set aside, you will be able to see your alternator where I previously described it to be, when standing on the passenger side of the car, facing the engine compartment, you will be facing the front of your 3.4 L engine. You can follow the rubber drive belt all around it's travel in and around the various pulleys that drive the components that are attached to the front of your engine. The alternator is attached to the upper left hand side of the front of the engine. It won't have any hoses or tubing attached to it like the power steering pump or water pump does. It will have two wires connected to the back side of it. One large wire and one small wire that connect through a plug that clips into a receptacle built into the back side of the alternator. . Don't attempt to remove the wires until you disconnect the battery. the wire plug will have a locking pin slid through the clip on the plug. Use a pair of needle nose pliers to grip the thick side of the pin and pull it out. Now you can depress the lock clip on the plug and pull it out of the receptacle back side of the alternator. Next you will need to locate the belt idler arm. this is located closer to the front center of the engine. It is a spring loaded arm with a pulley on it that keeps a steady tension on the drive belt. On the arm of the idler arm, there is a square hole/slot/opening that measures 3/8" square. This opening is made for a 3/8" socket wrench to be inserted and move the idler arm pulley up or down to remove the tension on the drive belt so it can be removed or replaced. Remove the belt now. Now direct you attention back to the alternator. Use a #15mm socket wrench and short extension to remove the two bolts holding the alternator on to the engine One bolt is visible on the top left side of the alternator, (and there may be a third bolt but I can't remember for sure), and the second bolt is located at the bottom left side and back up under the alternator in a position that is not visible when the alternator is in place on the engine. use your fingers to feel the bolt head and then remove it. It is a long bolt and might have to come out with the alternator, meaning it is too long to be slid out of the alternator when it is in the position it normally is on the front of the engine. When you feel the bolt is free from the threads on the engine, lift it out still inside the slot it runs through on the alternator, along with the alternator at the same time. This makes it a bit difficult to re-install the new alternator, because you have to support the weight of the alternator as you probe around for the threaded hole that the bottom bolt screws into. Other than that re-install note....just reverse all of the removal instructions to put the new alternator back in. Torque the bolts on the alternator tight! and if you can access the torque specifications on line or in a Chilton's book that is made for use on a silhouette, venture or montana manufactured in 2000-2001-2002 with a 3.4 L v-6 engine,,... and have a torque wrench to torque it down so...otherwise just tighten the bolts back to the same degree of effort/tug/pull that you had to exert when you removed them. And keep a mental image of how the drive belt goes back on the pulley system, or make a drawing of the belt route before removing...there is a diagram of the belt installation and route on the front of your engine compartment. Replace the drive belt if it's over 5 years old or if it has cracks or other defects that can be visually identified when you inspect it while it is off the engine.

Locating the oil plug on a 1999 Chrysler 300 M

I guess you are talking about the oil pan to drain the engine oil.
the transmission does NOT have a drain plug- that's why I asked in the first place.
But considering that, I think it is about a 13 or 14MM plug located on the right (Passenger) side of the engine under the car. The pan is a structured aluminum piece that hangs down almost even with the frame structure directly under the engine. Remember: righty- tighty, lefty- loosie.

Where is the starter located on my 2005 Crystlerv Pacifica and how difficult would it be for me to change it?

This will either be located under the engine in the front, under the exhuast manifold (if manifold is in front) or, it will be located on the passenger side, just under the block - chances are you'll have to slide under the vehicle to locate from underneath. These usually aren't visible from the top view.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
