Question about 1995 Chevrolet Caprice
I was told, by a shop, that my car is overheating because I need a new water pump. This was after I paid $40 and was told that it was fixed. When I left the car was still overheating so I took it back. They told me that the only thing they could come up with was the water pump was bad and it would cost almost $400. So my husband would rather do it himself if possible. So, how do I locate and change a water pump in a 1995 chevy caprice.
The water pump is directly connected to the fan check out this web link http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https://static.am-autoparts.com/item/d9e3ffe75d.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.am-autoparts.com/AM/Engine-Parts-Misc/Chevrolet/Impala/-/AM-36555980/&usg=__f8ltQQ4QQqyf44EIS2fflRSod-c=&h=234&w=319&sz=17&hl=en&start=6&um=1&tbnid=hujkDjSVFExDPM:&tbnh=87&tbnw=118&prev=/images%3Fq%3D1995%2Bcaprice%2Bwater%2Bpump%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26rlz%3D1T4GPEA_enUS310US310%26sa%3DN sorry is so long but thats how it look like it berry ease to do it ur self u need ....but i dont tink that thats the problem i tink it might be the radiator thats what cause a a car to over heat to check ur radiator take the cap off only when is cool not hot and look inside if it has alot of white stuff then ur radiator is pluged and i sugest u change ur radiato along whit ur water pump hope this help -ps shops just try to make money

Well the water pump will be mounted directly to the engine block with two large hoses running from it to your radiator.
When you get the new water pump make sure it has new gaskets in there. Should only be a couple of bolts and it comes right off.
Scrape off all of the old gasket from the engine block before you put the new gasket and pump on.
PS - Might have to drain your radiator first, it has a little valve at the bottom. And PLEASE make sure the car is cold so your poor husband doesn't burn the **** out himself :D
