Crank no start


run fault codes and check the crank/cam position sensor. Check that the timing belt is driving the cam shaft.

Is santa fe 2009 water pump driven by timing belt? should water pump be replaced when timing belt is replaced? If water pump leaks will it destroy the valves?


whether it is driven by the belt depends on which motor you have in it, but it seems to me that yours probably is. standard practice is to replace the pump at the same time you replace the timing belt if it is indeed driven by the timing belt, and no, you will not harm your valves if your water pump is leaking, but if the water pump bearing fails and the belt shifts position then you will almost definitely bend your valves.

This water pump is making funny noise how can i solve this


A water pump on any auto making noise is a sign of bearing failure on the water pump drive stem. The only remedy is to have the water pump replaced or replace it yourself. The bearing gets water intrusion or dries out and the bearing fails. The water pump is not expensive but labor costs can be substantial depending upon the location of the water pump. Many water pumps are driven by the timing belt on smaller cars. Gaining access to the water pump often involves removing the timing belt cover and the timing belt. Failure to reinstall the timing belt in the exact same position as it was removed can cause catastrophic engine failure. Without your vehicle make and model this response is generic most vehicles.

I have a 99 chrysler 300m that does not start, it sounds like it's out of gas but there is gas in there.. The diagnostic says the cam & the crankshaft sensors are bad but they have been replaced 2...


I am not saying that this is your problem for sure, but have you had your water pump and timing belt replaced lately?? I had the same car and it would crank and crank but would not start. I replaced both my cam and crank sensors also. Eventually I tore into it and found out that my timing belt had broke.

What happened to mine is the water pump (inside the timing cover powered by the timing belt) leaked and the coolant messed up my timing belt and the timing belt finally snapped.

I replaced water pump and timing belt and luckly the car did not have any bent valves. Just to help out I would not try and crank the car anymore until you know for sure that your timing belt is intact. If it is bad and you go in to replace it I would do the water pump while you are in there. It will save you trouble and is a really easy job.

Good luck and I hope the best for you!!

Where is the water pump on a Ford KJ Laser?


The water pump on the 92 Laser is easily replaced. You just need to untension the the belt driving the bump. Once you have done that all you need to do is undo the bolts and take the pump into your local auto parts dealer. Now that you have the pump install it and retension the belt.

U actually have to remove alternator belt and powersteering/a/c belts, then remove timing belt cover, remove timing belt adjuster, and slide timing belt off top pulley, making sure you mark it before removing it, so as to put it back in same position. Next, unbolt 2 bolts at bottom of water pump (this is a bit fiddly, but doable, then, undo water pump, replace with new water pump, being sure to use gasket cement, aswell as new gasket, which should be supplied with pump, then put it all back together, in reverse order of removal. Fill cooling system, check for leaks, and voila, u have done it :)

How do i replace a water pump on a 1994 mazda protege


1.u need to jack the car up so u can take the passenger tire off. align the crank timing mark to top dead center with the front timing belt cover. 2. u need to loosen the crank bolt with am impact wrench, or secure the flywheel and lossen the crank bolt .3. u need a 10mm short 1/4 inch socket/or wrench inch to loosen the (4) water pump nuts. 4. i now recommend u loosen the alternator, u do not need to remove it. 5. if u have air-conditioning..i suggest u leave it on. remove the belt 6. powersteering can be loosened as well, 7. once u remove the crank pulley..u can take the 10 mm blots out of the timing belt/water pump covers.u will also need to support the engine(under the oli pan is ok) and remove the upper passenger side motor mount. 8. u will now see the timing belt. u need to remove it by loosening the tension pulley (14 mmm bolt) .u should make sure the crank is tdc. but u just need to make sure that when u re-install the new timing belt(whichu better do when u do a water pump)...,make sure the exhaust and intake cam shaft pulleys are aligned.(exhaust pulley is front side of car, intake is rear.)(e-for exhaust,i -for intake....they're aligned at center of each other (center of engine)now i must take a pee,brb in a minute. remove timing belt now 9. remove (5) 12 mm bolts from water pump. clean surface. 10. re-install in complete reverse order.i do recommend u use a black rtv gasket sealer on ur water pump gasket.(screw manufacturers statements on this use). tart with taking your two belts off, remove motor mount, remove power steering pump, crank pulley,next remove timing belt covers along with tensioners. Remove valve cover. timing belt tensioner, now you have access to the water pump. remember your timing marks before you remove. When installing timing belt hold camshaffts with vise grips to align. installation opposite of removal.

2004 chrysler 300m 3.5L waterpump location and does it run off the timing belt/chain


Yes the water pump does run of the timing belt system.
Directly from the service manual:

The 3.5L water pump has a die cast aluminum
housing and a plastic swept vane impeller. It bolts
directly to the right rear timing belt cover using an
O-ring for sealing. The water pump is
driven by the engine timing belt.

REMOVAL
The water pump on all models can be replaced
without discharging the air conditioning system.
WARNING: DO NOT REMOVE PRESSURE CAP
WITH THE SYSTEM HOT AND UNDER PRESSURE
BECAUSE SERIOUS BURNS FROM COOLANT CAN
OCCUR.

NOTE: It is normal for the water pump to weep a
small amount of coolant from the weep hole (black
stain on water pump body). Do not replace the
water pump if this condition exists. Replace the
water pump if a heavy deposit or a steady flow of
engine coolant is evident on water pump body from
the weep hole (shaft seal failure). Be sure to perform
a thorough analysis before replacing water
pump.

(1) Drain cooling system (Refer to 7 - COOLING -
STANDARD PROCEDURE).

(2) Remove accessory drive belts (Refer to 7 -
COOLING/ACCESSORY DRIVE/DRIVE BELTS -
REMOVAL).

NOTE: The water pump is driven by the timing belt.

(3) Remove engine timing belt (Refer to 9 -
ENGINE/VALVE TIMING/TIMING BELT AND
SPROCKETS - REMOVAL).

(4) Remove water pump mounting bolts (Fig. 31).
Note position of longer bolt for proper re-installation.

(5) Remove water pump body from engine

Where is the water pump on plymouth neon engine.


Hello mark_mack...The Neons water pump is an internal part which is powered by the timing belt. For installation all the accessories, belts, timing cover and motor mount has to be removed. Then the serpentine belt, the lower crank pulley has to be removed. The water pump is behind it and can be replaced in five minutes...just takes awhile to get to it. I would not recommennd doing this job without the knowledge and proper tools.
Note: this would be a good time to replace the timing belt as well, since you already have it removed.
Good luck..i hope this helps..please rate me a fixya.
