No "setup" that I am aware of. Remove old water pumd and replace with new one and go.

In the event you have a car with a reverse cooling system, then I would take to a mechanic

If u please,can you support me with diagrames showing how to connect the cooling system of the engine of Cadillac fleetwood 1994? coz i have a big problem in that. Thank you for your time and for help

a repair manual will have that information for you, they cost around 15 bucks and save alot fo headaches, however the upper rad house should go to intake water outlet, lower should got to water pump and then there will be two lines to the heater core and maybe a bypass house around the water pump, thats a general setup.

Car runs hot loses water.then it will be ok cant find the water pump to replace or the thermostat

The water pump is hidden behind the timing belt cover. The water pump and timing belt and crankshaft are all connected through the timing belt. The thermostat is located to the right side of the engine. You'll be able to tell if its the thermostat housing by 2 clues. 1 is the dome shape the housing has, and 2) is the hose going to it from the radiator.
If you are not familiar with changing the timing belt, please pay close attention to the timing setup. If you wish to tackle this job, spend 30 bucks on the manual and read up on it first.

I have 93 toyota camry. how to put in power steering belt ?

This is the routing of the serpentine belt for your Camry. #1 is the crankshaft pulley and #2 and #3 are the tensioner setup. The diagram is not very specific, but I would say that the other big pulley is the AC., the one above #1 is the tensioner and the one next to it would be the water pump with the power steering pump being one of the top ones.

Changing fuel pump. Have tank down. Cannot remove retaining ring.

Regardless of engine,2.4L, 2.5L, they use the same pump module setup, the retaining ring is a white collar that is threaded on, use flat but blute chissel, flat file, to knock againts the lugs that are around the outside of the ring, or use very large water pump pliers and turn couterclockwise, make sure area is clean, or if you have access to a very large pulley puller, that will work to, even a plumbing gater strap will work to. GOOD LUCK. RDJRP

Cannot break the fan loose from the water pump. Is it left hand thread. Is there a speciail tool to hold the fan to break it loose.

The best tool for this is a ratcheting fan clutch tool, although the ones you can rent from Auto Zone work by hitting the wrench with a BFH ( big hammer) possibly quite a few times.
Just changed the water pump on my 1998 Dodge Dakota with a similar setup and had to whack it about twenty times to break it loose being careful not to break anything plastic.
Standing in front of the vehicle turn the nut towards the passengers side of the car and once broken loose, carefully spin the fan clutch off being careful to not damage the radiator.
