How do I replace water pump and timing chain on 2.4 4 cylinder Chevy Cavilier


If You Only need to replace water pump, you need a special tool to hold water pump sprocket in place while changing the pump, Just look up GM 2.2 Water pump tool on e-bay, or ask a local auto parts store if they rent one out. Garages make out like a bandit to replace these water pumps, because you need this special tool to do the job, and ti is impossible to do it without . Good Luck

How to tell if water pump for 04 cadillac srx needs to be replaced.


Your car will overheat very fast and you may either notice coolant leaking from the location of the pump and also possibly a squealing noise due to a bad bearing. Overheating can also be caused by a bad thermostat.

I need to remove the water pump on a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am. What is neccesary to remove the front timing chain cover? I have the instructions to remove the water pump, but it involves removing the front...


Just to clarify i asked what size motor was in his car. The reason for that statement that removing the timing cover ,chain and exhaust wasent required to change the water pump is that on 3.4 V6 engines none of that is required. To change the water pump in my car ( 99 grand am gt 3.4L) all you need to do is remove serpentine belt, remove the 4 bolts holding on the water pump pulley, then remove the 5 water pump retaining bolts and it out. Then you just need t remove any traces of the old gasket clean the surface put a new gasket on following it with the new water pump torque the 5 retaining bolts , water pump pulley torque its 4 bolts put the serpentine belt back on fill and bleed the coolant system and your done. All the work done easily from the top of the motor without any special tools. It took me a hour and a half. So there is a huge difference in changing water pumps on a 4 cylinder engine and a 6 cylinder engine this is why I asked what engine he had in his car.

How long to replace a timing belt on 98 MPV 3.0 V-6 and do the valves get damage when it breaks. Can I do this at home or does it call for special tools. Thank You, Steve


I dont think you should attempt this. I dont think it will have bent valves. When you replace the belt, replace the water pump and ALL the pulleys (2) , and tensioner pulley and spacer , all the oil seals. no special tools are involved, but you need to know what you are doing.

1991 vw passat 9A 16v 2l B Charging and instrument cluster problem One day car did not start-turn key and nothing at all.(no power to inst. cluster no turning, nothing) One hour later it did turned on and cranked. and run fine. Next day repeated.Battery was dead.When jumped jumper cable melted.The alternator was shorting. Replaced battery and alternator. But alternator is not charging.Alternator tested as good.Replaced anyway, for another alternator that also tested as good just for the heck of it. Still not charging and whole instrument cluster and radio have no power from the very first replacement repair till now. Car will run just fine with out other el. problems as far the battery have charge above 6-7 v. I checked fuses in fuse/relay panel.Did not see any fuse burned. Is there fusible link on charging system or other fuse or relays to check besides the ones on the fuse/relay panel? I there relay that control this? I know that is grounded good. I know that is connected to + battery good. Alt+battery good. There is small blue wire running from alternator?????? called the alt. control wire. I think is says d+ or something on the alt.terminal next to it. It seems that something prevents the alternator to output power. I measured the alt. terminal + and ground when connected and running and all I read is the battery voltage dropping. I think the blue small wire and instrument cluster are close connection to this problem. Unless there is fuse or relay that I missed to check. other possibilities- ECU. -Wiring harness. First- where is all the fuses? and relays to check? fusible links? second -what is the blue wire ? third-instrument cluster involved? keep in mind that everything works besides inst cluster and charging when battery have charge above 6-7v. This car have disconnected and missing ABS and Security . Run grate for about a year till this happened. Rebuilded engine....Clean well maintained.. u4davidatgmaildotcom
