Well, if it's a 5.0L engine, remove the 4 bolts holding the fan to the pulley. If it's a 4.0L engine, you need to hold the waterpump pulley still and break the nut loose holding the fan clutch to the waterpump. If you don't have a wrench that big, try using a long chisel on the edge of the nut and hitting it very hard with a hammer to break it loose.

SOURCE: REMOVING WATERPUMP

NOTE: This procedure may be easier if the radiator and shroud is removed. If the radiator is not removed, place cardboard in front so not to damage the radiator core

  1. Open the hood and disconnect the battery. Remove the lower engine cover.
  2. Drain the cooling system. CAUTION
    When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  3. On cars without air conditioning, remove the fan.
  4. On cars with air conditioning, remove the air pump and generator mounting bolts, then remove the fan and air pump drive belt (pivot the generator and air pump in toward the engine). Remove the fan and pulley with set plate. Remove the hoses to the pump.
  5. Remove the 6 bolts attaching the water pump and remove the water pump assembly. Clean all gasket surfaces carefully. To install:
  6. Install the 6 bolts attaching the water pump with a new gasket.
  7. On cars with air conditioning, install the air pump and generator mounting bolts, then install the fan and air pump drive belt (pivot the generator and air pump in toward the engine). Install the fan and pulley with set plate. Install the hoses to the pump.
  8. On cars without air conditioning, install the fan.
  9. Refill the cooling system.
  10. Connect the battery, start the engine and check for leaks.

SOURCE: removal of waterpump

Drain cooling system. Remove radiator upper cross-member. Remove radiator fan. Remove accessory drive belts.
NOTE: The water pump is driven by the primary timing chain.
Remove the timing chain and all chain guides then remove water pump and gasket. Reverse to install. Since this job requires about 4 special tools and the removal of the timing chain and a high level of technical skill I would not attempt it, if you get the timing chain on wrong you could cause severe damage to the engine.

You can't remove the fan and pump together. The pulley will be i nthe way. You must remove the fan and clutch, then the pulley then you will have access to the water pump bolts as well as the other components which must be removed to get the pump off.

SOURCE: Replacing waterpump. How do I remove fan assembly?

The large nut on the fan is threaded onto the water pump shaft. It's a counterclockwise thread. There are a number of different types of wrenches made especially to remove the fan. I usually just use a LONG punch and tap it into the nut to break it free. Once you make a small indentation (passenger's side from the top) give it one good shot to break it free, and then spin it off by hand. If you prefer to buy the wrench, that too is an option. Advance Auto (eastern U.S.) has tool rentals for a wrench that most DIY'rs are only going to use once. If you're uncomfortable with the punch I'd suggest renting one. Just remember that it's a reverse thread. Leaving the belt on helps in any event as it keeps some tension on the pulley to keep it from spinning.

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.

Water pump instillation


Remove the Fan Shroud. You have to do this with Both the Old and New Waterpump out. The fan has 4 Nuts that hold it on to the Pulley. Remove these and Remove the Fan and the Pulley. You will need the Studs off of the Old Waterpump and they are Threaded into the Small Circle that is on the Front of the Waterpump Under the Pulley. There is no Easy way to get these off. It is Tough. Then when you are done Fighting with these, Install the Studs on the New Waterpump and Install the Pump. You can do this either with or Without the Fan already put back on. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
