Have a compression test to eliminate head gasket and cracked head. Have a flow rest done on the radiator to check for blocked cores. Have the radiator cap tested to hold the correct pressure in the radiator.

My 2003 BMW 745Li runs hot in the city but on the hwy no problem makes high pitch noise I think its the Fan coming on and it shifts rough what could be the problem Thermostat maybe


May possibly be water pump also, squeeking comes from belts, if the pump is out the pulley may have locked up. Turn car on, and lift hood. Find serpentine belt and follow to water pump. You should be able to see if pulley is seized, belt will spin, but pulley will not. Also let car run for about 10 minutes, and check pressure in upper, and lower hoses to radiator, that will also let you know if your getting proper pressure.

Vehicle heats up very fast and I get no heat out of the dashboard. The upper hose is hot but the lower hose is cold after running the engine overheats. When I started it, the belt was squealing. Aft


START WITH THE BASICS. CLEAN, FULL 50/50 MIX IN SYSTEM. CHANGE THERMOSTAT. LOOK FOR TRACES OF COOLANT LOSS FROM THE WEEP HOLE IN BOTTOM OF WATER PUMP (USUALLY UNDER PULLEY). WATER PUMP DRIVE BELT OR SERPENTINE BELT MAY NEED TO BE REPLACED. ALSO MAKE SURE RADIATOR CAP IS WORKING PROPERLY.CHECK FOR LEAKS ANT WHERE ELSE IN ENGINE AREA.

Why is there a whinning sound around water pump? is it possibIe the tensioner puIIey is bad


Belt tensioner pulley bearing, most likely.... Remove the serpentine belt then spin the pulley by hand. If it makes ANY noise, that's your problem.... pretty common on GM engines.

I was driving and all of sudden the serpentein belt ripped and the car started to shake like crazy. then it started to smoke and overheated. one of the pulleys at the bottom, not sure if the harmonic...


Power steering pulley is on the top. The largest pulley is the crankshaft pulley.
But the 2 on the bottom are the crankshaft pulley and ac compressor. Slightly
above those 2 pulleys is the water pump. Which ones not turning?
And when the serpentine belt broke your water pump was no longer circulating
engine coolant because the belt turns the water pump.

When the serpentine belt breaks you should not drive the car even
though it will run. How long did you drive the car after the belt broke?

So you replaced the belt and then started it? And you can actually drive in reverse?
If you drove the car very far with the belt broken you may have done damage to your engine. I mean
its most likely you did do some damage.

Installing water pump in 97 cavalier 2.2


Hi. Here's the proceudere on how to replace the water pump of your 97 Chevy Cavalier.


•1
Drain the cooling system. Place a large oil drain container under the drain fitting located on the bottom of the radiator. Turn the drain fitting counterclockwise until fluid is draining from the radiator. Use a pair of pliers to turn the drain fitting if you cannot turn it by hand. Turn the fitting clockwise to tighten it after all of the fluid has drained from the radiator.
•2
Remove the cooling fan. Disconnect the electrical connection from the fan motor. Remove the bolts holding the fan assembly to the radiator support with a ratchet wrench. Pull the fan assembly up from the engine compartment and remove it.
•3
Remove the serpentine belt. Place a wrench over the belt tensioner and rotate the tensioner to release the tension on the belt. Pull the belt off the pulleys and remove it from the vehicle.
•4
Remove the water pump pulley. Place a screwdriver behind the pulley to lock it in place while removing the pulley mounting bolts with a ratchet wrench.
•5
Disconnect the coolant hoses running to the water pump.
•6
Remove the water pump mounting bolts with a ratchet wrench or wrench and remove the water pump from the vehicle.
•7
Clean the mating surfaces of the engine block and new water pump with a towel saturated with lacquer thinner.
•8
Apply a thin layer of RTV sealer to both sides of the new water pump gasket and place the gasket on the new water pump.
•9
Place the water pump against the engine block and finger tighten the water pump mounting bolts to hold the pump in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 foot-pounds.
•10
Place the pulley on the water pump and install the water pump pulley mounting bolts with a ratchet wrench.
•11
Attach any hoses previously disconnected from the water pump.
•12
Install the serpentine belt. Route the belt over the pulleys according to the routing diagram in the engine compartment. Place a wrench over the belt tensioner and rotate the tensioner to tighten the tension on the belt.
•13
Install the cooling fan. Gently lower the cooling fan in position and install the mounting bolts attaching the fan assembly to the radiator support with a ratchet wrench. Attach the electrical connection to the fan motor.
•14
Refill the cooling system to the appropriate level, start the vehicle and check for leaks around the water pump.

All the best!

Just need to know were the water pump on montero sport 1998 3.0 Ls engine????


It's under the timing cover on the front of the engine. I have pasted autozone.com instructions to replace the water pump below.


3.0L & 3.5L Engines

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. If necessary, properly release the fuel pressure.
  3. Drain the cooling system.
  4. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Negative battery cable
CAUTION Wait at least 90 seconds after the negative battery cable is disconnected to prevent possible deployment of the air bag.

Upper radiator shroud Accessory belts Air conditioning compressor tensioner pulley, if equipped Cooling fan and clutch assembly and the water pump pulley Thermostat and housing on 3.0L, 3.5L engines Water outlet, gasket and houses Radiator hoses from the water pump Crankshaft pulley(s) Timing belt covers. If the same timing belt will be reused, mark the direction of the timing belt's rotation, for installation in the same direction. Be sure the engine is positioned so the No. 1 cylinder is at the TDC of its compression stroke and the sprockets timing marks are aligned with the engine's timing mark indicators. Timing belt Water pump bolts are different lengths, note their positions before removing. Water pump from the block Water pipe connection and O-ring

To install:
  1. Clean and dry the mating surfaces of the block and water pump
  2. Install or connect the following:

    New O-ring on the water pipe connection, wet the new O-ring with water to aid in installation Water pump, with a new gasket, Torque the bolts to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm) on 3.0L and 3.5L engines Alternator bracket bolt to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm) Timing belt(s) and covers Crankshaft pulley(s) Thermostat and housing on 3.0L, 3.5L engines. Torque the bolts to 12-14 ft. lbs. (17-20 Nm). Radiator hose to the water pump Water outlet, new gasket and houses. Torque the bolts to 12-14 ft. lbs. (17-20 Nm). Water pump pulley Cooling fan and clutch assembly Air conditioning compressor tensioner pulley, if equipped Accessory belts Upper radiator shroud Thermostat and housing on 3.0L, 3.5L engines Negative battery cable
  3. Refill the radiator with coolant. This cooling system has a self-bleeding thermostat, so system bleeding is not required.
  4. Run the vehicle until the thermostat opens and fill the overflow tank. Check for leaks.
  5. Once the vehicle has cooled, recheck the coolant level.

Engine is running hot


Check coolant reservoir level, check cooling fan if working, check if no leaks on the water pump...If engine newly installed, chances are drive belts are not installed properly.

No power steering, engine cut out but has restarted engine hot fan on, no warm air so take this as a belt problem?


The symptoms you have described sounds most like you had a serpentine belt break or fall off the pulley system (rare but possible).That is a fairly simple job to replace the serpentine belt,whether you replace it yourself or have a professional do the job it isn't a costly repair, providing that is the only problem.There is a serpentine belt routing label under the hood, usually on the plastic piece that goes across the front of the engine compartment near the hood latch release.There is a spring loaded belt tensioner that holds tension on the serpentine belt(labeled on the routing label) rotate the tensioner against the spring pressure, rout the belt according to the routing label, then slowly release tensioner against the new belt and that should complete the installation.Hopefully that is the solution. Good luck !
