I would suggest they mean a torque wrench.... yes i know i should use one on pretty much anything i work on but i don't.... as long as you install the new pump with the gaskets properly fitted.. you'll be fine.... it always amazes me how many strangers can do the job i'm doing better then i can

I'm replacing a water pump on my 1990 BMW 525i and I don't no how to remove that thing where the spark plugs go and the rotor 2nd I'm also need to remove the timing belt cover can I get the 3rd bolt out...


STOP what you are doing before you damage something!! Whatever you are trying to remove is not the water pump. Neither the sparkplugs nor the "timing belt" cover needs to come off. Remove the fan belt. Remove the fan (the nut is LH thread- means it turns left to tighten and right to loosen). You will need a large wrench (32mm) availible at sears.The water pump is directly behind the fan and is held in by 4 10mm bolts.

1990 BMW 525i 2.5L engine overheats after rplaceing water pump, stermostat,fan clucth,radiator


There's trapped air in the cooling system.
  • You need to remove the bleeder screw on top of the radiator when adding water to the expansion tank.
  • With the engine running, pour water into the expansion tank till you see air go out through the bleeder screw's hole.
  • Just keep adding water until no more air bubbles come out then just put the screw back in place.
  • Then fill the expansion tank to it's normal level/line.

My 1990 BMW 525i is over heating


Try replacing the thermostat. It is supposed to open when the water temp reaches a certain point usually around 180 degrees. It might be stuck in the closed position.

My hood struts on my 1990 bmw 5251 need replaced .easy job ?


No special tools necessary. Just a screwdriver. Takes less than 5 minutes. Have someone hold the hood and do one shock at a time, or put vise grips on the side you are not doing to prevent the hood from falling on you.

1990 bmw 525i overheating ..


No such pump! Make sure you have anti-freeze in the radiator. It circulates better than just water, because water boils and turns to steam (goes UP) proper antifreeze helps it not have pockets of steam/air.

1990 cadillac deville need help water pump removal???


You need a special water pump tool. you can rent one from Auto Zone. The water pump housing is the bottom radiator hose on the right side of the engine. remove the hose and the outer-caseing, the waterpump is now slightly visable. Use a .5 inch rachet with the Special tool and turn clockwise.
