Well i just bought a 1986 buick century and i need to know how to take the water pump off and install another myself

if it's a 2.5,you'll need to pull the 90 degree manifold WITH the pump to avoid pulley interference. much easier.

I have a toyota corolla 1986 4 door salon, the water is'nt circulating, the water pump is'nt leaking in fact their is no leakage, but my car overheats, the belts are working - does anyone have any ideas?...

If there is heat coming out of the vents than you know the water pump is working. This would leave the thermostat as a likely cause of the overheating. Especially if the radiator never gets hot.

2004 trailblazer leaking water pump, live in NY and its cold now isthis something i should fix right away or i can wait until spring

I speak from experience: changing the water pump on a Trailblazer yourself is very involved---much of the front fascia of the vehicle will have to be removed as there is almost no clearance. In cold climes, I would DEFINITELY have a leaking water pump repaired right away.

1989 honda civic dx 1.5L needs water pump among other things

Starting w the timing belt, It must be removed to replace the water pump, there's shouldn't be any addtl labor involved to install a new one. Since the fuel is leaking & the converter is overheating you are asking for BIG TROUBLE if u don't replace them both. Fuel & converters DONT MIX!
