Water pump location


2.2 liter the water pump is driven by the timing chain. You will need a special tool to lock/hold the the water pump sprocket in place while the pump is being replaced. If you don't have the tool than do not try to replace the pump on this engine.

3.4 liter the water pump is located on the upper right of the engine as you are looking at it standing on the passenger side of the car. the lower hose goes into the backside of it.

Need to replace water pump on 1999 pont sunfire 2.4 liter engine are there any special tools required


No, just basic mechanics hand tools. This vehicle is 11 years old. I recommend you perform a complete cooling system service at the same time you replace the water pump. Drain, flush, replace the thermostat, replace the water pump, pour in a 50/50 mix of the correct antifreeze and distilled water. (Do not use tap water). Bleed all air from the system. Also inspect the radiator hoses and heater hoses. Replace as necessary.
