Question about 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier
First look at the pump.There are 2 horizonal bolts. They should be silver unless they have been painted. Remove that black air intake tube so you can get to the pump. Now place some old rags underneath the pump and have a small bowl or something you can catch the fluid that is fixing to leak. Remove the two fluid lines. The one on the side with the clamp is the return line. Disconnect it and catch whatever fluid you can so not to make a big mess. After that, on the bottom hose (pressure hose) There will be no pressure so don't be affraid. It will take two wrenches,one to loosen the fittings on the hose and the other as a "backup" wrench on the metal line. Now wrap a rag around the ends of the two hoses to stop any mess they want to make. Now remove those two horizonal silver bolts. One at the top and one at the bottom. Pull the pump strait off. Now clean up any mess that it made. The key here is not to make a mess. On the new pump,put a little engine oil on the gasket that fits against the intake cam. It will seal better. You may need to swap over the reservoir to the new pump to save money. After you get done,dont over fill it,start it,check for leaks,turn it left stop to right stop at least twice to work out air in the lines. Check the fluid level again. After you get done you will say "that wasn't to bad"...
