The 03 to 05 silverados were bad about this .. the speedometer motor is bad . you have to pull the dash out of it and replace the speedometer motor .. its kind of a picky job you have to remove all the neadles on the gauges and remove the face to get to the motor and unsolder it from the printed circuit board. and solder it back in .. this is the only way to fix your problem .. holler if you need help with this ..

Water pump location

It would make it easier to know what type of vehicle but generally speaking it will be on the engine side of the bottom radiator hose . This can be difficult to see in some East west of front wheel drive engines or cars . Sometimes even covered by the timing cover and possibly driven by the timing belt itself. On conventional engines it can be behind the fan or the fan is bolted on to a drive pulley that can be the nose of the pump it's self

P1000 code on my ford f350 I've driven it 4 times

It depends on how you drive the truck. The computer has lost its memory, usually from disconnecting the battery. Once that happens, the truck has to be driven in various conditions before the memory is relearned.
In most cases, you have to do some highway and city driving AFTER the engine is up to normal temp. Usually 40 or 50 miles of each is enough. And not all in the same trip either.

Power to dash, lights etc, click from engine but it wont start. was driving fine 10 min. earlier... 2003 chevy malibu..

have the battery checked all of your lights and radio will still work even with very little juice in the battery but it takes a lot to crank the engine over and sometimes the battery will just go bad no matter when it was driven last and if the alternator has gone bad it will kill a battery fairly quickly so have it check also.

Van runs, but I lose my speedomitor,fuel gage and temp gage

When it acts up try locking an unlocking the doors (do this a few times) with the switch on the door. If they start to work again you will most likely need to have the body control module replaced.
