You will need to drop the motor mount at the top of the engine over the pump to get it off. other than that it is straight forward. when you remove the bolt from the mount be sure to chase it with a rod to hold the mount up or put a jack under the engine to support and aid in instalation.

I have a 2006 ford 500 sel the water pump has water coming out of it do i need to replace the water pump or is there a seal or gasket that may have gone bad? That i could replace


Most water pumps have weep holes underneath that direct leaking water downward.
Sounds like you need to replace the water pump and of course get a new gasket. don-ohio

2005 peugeot 206 GTI 180 cambelt changed at 82,000kms water pump now leaking advised to change cambelt at same time as replacing water pump odometer is now at 92,000 kms. What do you think?


when replacing the pump if the timing belt has to be removed , it is not necessary to replace the belt PROVIDING THAT THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURE IS FOLLOWED
before removing the belt mark it with an arrow indication direction of movement replace the belt with the arrow correctly position as before removal
timing belts ( for want of a better description) breakin from running in a set direction
if replaced running in the reverse direction then the "breakin" gets far worse and early belt failure occurs
when the belt was replaced , if the cam seals , crank seals idler and hydraulic adjuster were not replaced then it might be worthwhile to have it done with the water pump as oil on a belt reduces the life to about 1/2

Water pump replacement


I've never worked on this sort of vehicle but when I replaced my water pump in another, I had to losen the Alternator to get the belt off since it went to both. You'll need to get a manual on your vehicle from an auto parts store. THere should be directions in that about how to replace your water pump.

How can you tell if your water pump is even working


Water pumps FYI

A belt drives your water pump, most are the same belts that turn your altenator and air compressor. Some water pumps are turned by the timing belt. But if you can see that your belt is working the water pump, altenator and compressor, its working. If you had a water pump powered by a timing belt, you would not be able to start your car if that belt stoped.

Water pumps never stop working, they are direct shaft driven.

The only thing is they do start to leak after they get older, then need replacing.

Need to replace the water pump in my 2006 trailblazer, is there anything special I need to know like is one brand part better than another, is there any special tricks of the trade that I can use to...


The only trick I recommend is getting the Haynes repair manual on the vehicle and following the direction in there to do the job. As far as parts are concerned one is pretty much the same as the other.

2004 chrysler 300m 3.5L waterpump location and does it run off the timing belt/chain


Yes the water pump does run of the timing belt system.
Directly from the service manual:

The 3.5L water pump has a die cast aluminum
housing and a plastic swept vane impeller. It bolts
directly to the right rear timing belt cover using an
O-ring for sealing. The water pump is
driven by the engine timing belt.

REMOVAL
The water pump on all models can be replaced
without discharging the air conditioning system.
WARNING: DO NOT REMOVE PRESSURE CAP
WITH THE SYSTEM HOT AND UNDER PRESSURE
BECAUSE SERIOUS BURNS FROM COOLANT CAN
OCCUR.

NOTE: It is normal for the water pump to weep a
small amount of coolant from the weep hole (black
stain on water pump body). Do not replace the
water pump if this condition exists. Replace the
water pump if a heavy deposit or a steady flow of
engine coolant is evident on water pump body from
the weep hole (shaft seal failure). Be sure to perform
a thorough analysis before replacing water
pump.

(1) Drain cooling system (Refer to 7 - COOLING -
STANDARD PROCEDURE).

(2) Remove accessory drive belts (Refer to 7 -
COOLING/ACCESSORY DRIVE/DRIVE BELTS -
REMOVAL).

NOTE: The water pump is driven by the timing belt.

(3) Remove engine timing belt (Refer to 9 -
ENGINE/VALVE TIMING/TIMING BELT AND
SPROCKETS - REMOVAL).

(4) Remove water pump mounting bolts (Fig. 31).
Note position of longer bolt for proper re-installation.

(5) Remove water pump body from engine

350 in a 86 k-5 blazer runnin hot very hot 5 miles it is boiling


You can tell if your water pump is running backwards by the way the radiator fan is running. If the ran is pulling air from the radiator then the water pump is running the right way, if it's pushing air toward the radiator then your water pump is running the wrong way too. There should be a sticker on the fan shroud or on the hood to the direction the serpentine belt should run. IF the water pump is running the right direction, then it needs to be replaced. Good luck and hope this helps.

Water pump replacement


the water pump should be located front right of motor the only thing that may take some time is if the belt needs to be replaced some models require you remove part of the engine mount. Job should take a pump / belt if damaged / antifreeze.
