Open the hood of your truck. Look inside the engine bay. See the fan assembly and the pulley that the belt rides on. The water pump is behind the pulley. Changing water pumps can be somewhat of a task. Professional help will be needed for someone that can't find the waterpump.
The water pump is on the passenger side front of the engine; I had to drain the coolant, I kept the belt in place, then I removed the 3 bolts from the pulley to give me access to the bolts on the top (it will require a set of metric tools for it). Then I removed the passenger side front tire and the splash cover from under the car just above the tire, removed all bolts that holds the pump on the lower part of it, then removed the belt, scraped and clean very well the old gasket. The new water pump came with a new gasket, so I just got a gasket maker and applied to the gasket, so I did not have to do it again. Work backwords to reinstall everything, good time to replace the coolant and if you have not done yet, replace the thermostat valve along with any hose that may be cracked, rigid or enlarged (check the hoses to the heater core also). Please check your belts and hoses so you will not have to redo the process again.

your heat/cool and vent selection options are controlled by engine vacuum through small clear tubes attached to the rear of your climate control interface. Other vehicles have small steel pull wires that operate the desired changes. You might try removing the trim and any fasteners affiliated with the interface/console. GENTLY pull outward and look to see if any of these tubes are pulled off or cut/damaged. Did anyone recently install a new stereo in the vehicle? If so, the vacuum tubing and or pull wires that change your outlets could have been damaged when the stereo unit was pushed into place. Hope this helps

Testimonial: "Very good information. THANKS!"
Turn the ignition on and within a few seconds slowly pump the gas pedal three times. A message displaying "oil life reset" should show up in the drivers information center. If you have the "newer" driver information center look for an "i" button and scroll through it until you see "oil life **%" displayed. At that point press and hold the reset button until it resets to 100%. Should take about 10 seconds of holding the button.
There should be instructions on how to reset it in the owners manual if this doesn't help. Good luck.

I had to replace the mass air flow sensor. $ 150. the engine would shut off when driving too.changed fuel filter only worked for a day. The sensor is just after air filter.

Just maybe it's mechanical.Internal to the steering column is an activator rod that manually makes the contact in the ignition switch.It's the cast piece that is molded to the activator rod that breaks.Two things you can do;tilt the steering wheel all the way up and try again to start(the cast piece spreads before it breaks,by tilting you gain a little extra throw on the switch).This will only work a couple times before complete failure of the casting.The other is to move the cover that's just below the tilt lever enough to get to the rod and move it with a pliers to start.If it's mechanical these things do work,I ran my truck with a vice grip for a couple weeks until I could get the parts for the repair,but replacing the broken part is smarter and won't scratch up your column like mine.
