SOURCE: how to change water pump

Well, waterpump on your car is internal inside the timing chain area, being driven by the timing chain. You need to remove drive belts, the small black side covers, that are screwed into the front engine cover. The left on has the chain tensioner, the right one has the water pump behind it. Once the covers are removed, you need to push the timing chain tensioner inside and put a pin inside of it (tensioner ) to hold it in. Once you have done that, you need to rotate the engine counterclockwise (until you feel tension) to loosen the chain around the water pump. Then you will use 2 bolts (6mm and about 2 inches long) and screw those into the water pump body. This will pull the pump out of the engine, so pretty much the bolts are going to be acting as puller device to remove pump out of engine. reverse install procedure. This is not the easiest of repairs and not for a novice or someone, that doesn't really work on cars. Good luck.

acquire (2) 3" long coarse thread M8 bolts, set aside. remove main belt, belt tensioner pulley, belt tensioner bracket. then remove the timing chain tensioner cover located below-left of the the passenger-side motor mount, and the water pump cover located just below-right of the same motor mount. push the tensioner piston in and lock the piston in place by using a smaill nail, or push pin inserted in the hole.. youll see it. then rotate the engine counter-clockwise 20-30 degrees to free up chain tension on the water pump. Remove the bolts holding in the pump. Now using the 2 M8 bolts, thread them into 2 of the same top and bottom bolt holes evenly to pop out the pump. be sure to keep an eye on the chain as it can hold the pump in and hamper your efforts in getting the pump out.Make sure to lube up the 2 o rings on the new pump real slick, and pop it back in place. installation is the same, only backwards and without the M8 bolts. dont force the pump in...

I have a 2000 nissan maxima gle 3.0 do i have to take out the engine to cjange the timong tensioner it has a rattling sound


Larry, normally engines do not have to be taken out to change timing tensioners, the bumper assy., A/C condenser,radiator,etc is removed to get access. Best if you get yourself a manual.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Replace water pump on 2000 maxima 6 cyl.


not for a novice person. pretty labor intensive repair. you need to remove the 2 access covers (black in color) on the front of the engine. left cover has timing chain tensioner behind it. the right has water pump behind it. you need to remove the tensioner forst and rotate engine counterclockwise to be able to take the pump out. the pump needs to be pulled out with (2) 8 mm bolts which will act like a puller. than you can take out the pump. its not for novice person. it takes me about 3 hours to do that job and i have been working on nissans for 15years.

How do you fix the water pump on a 1997 nissan maxima? Where is the water pump located on a 1997 nissan maxima?


The water pump is located behind the timing chain cover. There are two black plates on the front cover. The one near the front of the car has the water pump behind it. The other one has the timing chain tensioner behind it. First you must drain the coolant. Then support engine and remove engine mount. Then remove drive belts. Then remove the two black plates. Push the tensioner in and lock it with a paper clip. Then remove the two bolts holding the tensioner and remove tensioner. Then remove the water pump bolts. Rotate engine crankshaft the take tension off of water pump (about 20 degrees). Then install two bolts into water pump threaded flange (M8). Tighten M8 evenly as water pump will come without damaging it. Check for corrosion. Then replace with new one. Make sure you use new "O" rings. Lubricate with engine oil. Put the original three bolts back in the water pump. Then install timing chain tensioner and black covers. Replace belts and engine mounts. Add coolant and pressure test system.

1997 nissan maxima with 3000 24 valve twin cam v6. I am need a water pump.What comes off to change.


Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

To replace the water pump, you will need to remove all the drive belts. Then there are 2 black covers on the front timing cover. One cover is for the chain tensioner, the other is for access to the water pump. I would recommend you replace the tensioner the same time you do the water pump. The reason is, you need to remove that tensioner so the chain has slack. When the chain has slack, you can then unbolt and pull the water pump out. It could get stuck, so there are bolts that you need that you would use to run in to pop the pump free.

Hope this helps , Thanks Jay!
