How do I fix the Monitor Lifter Pump 1103?

The Monitor heater got pulled away from the exhaust pipe so we had a terrible smell, I shut it all down, called for pro help. They hooked everything up, but didn't do much else! When I turned it all back on, the lifter pump wasn't working. The heater was not getting fuel. So, I primed the thing, per hte pro's over the phone instruction, and it worked! For as long as there was available primer, it worked great! Like, one pint equaled 20 minutes maybe! I cannot find a manual online ANYWHERE -- I want to take this thing apart, clean it and see if that will do the job. It WAS working just fine before the leak. I just don't know what to do now, and it just started snownig. I am COLD and do not have the $300 - $500 to fix or replace this lifter pump! ANYONE??? SCHEMATIC?? MANUAL?? HELP!

The pump is not drawing oil but only when when sucking. (You knew that). I would guess that moving the heater caused a small leak in the oil suction line or pluggage in a suction strainer/filter. When primed, everything is OK. So ignitor, nozzle, etc is OK when the prime fluid is present. But the pump cannot draw liquid. Look for a very small leak in the suction letting air in. Look for pluggage in a suction filter. It won't take much air inleak or suction restriction to stop a pump from lifting.

I had the same problem, took to a benz dealer, it was the fuel pump relay, cost for repair $200.

SOURCE: fuel pump relay

first alway check the simple things first like fuses and relays then start playin with changin out parts. under the hood you sould find a fuse panel if the lid does not tell you what is what you need to look into the service manuel find the fuel pump relay and switch it with the same type relay can works some the doesn't effect the engine like a fan relay for expamle. then try to start engine when turning key to the run pos you sould hear a fant hum or whine from the pump. if thats a no go take the main fuel line off before the fuel filter and see if a good stream of fuel comes out when you turn key to run pos.if so replace fuel filter.

Look for a bad gasket where the pipe connects to the manifold. Could just be loose bolts or a bad gasket.

How to replace water pump on 1991 pontiac quad 4


2.3L Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable
  2. Detach the oxygen sensor connector.
  3. Properly drain the engine coolant into a suitable container. Remove the heater hose from the thermostat housing for more complete coolant drain.
  4. Remove upper and lower exhaust manifold heat shields.
  5. Remove the bolt that attaches the exhaust manifold brace to the manifold.
  6. Break loose the manifold to exhaust pipe spring loaded bolts using a 13mm box wrench.
  7. Raise and safely support the vehicle. NOTE: It is necessary to relieve the spring pressure from 1 bolt prior to removing the second bolt. If the spring pressure is not relieved, it will cause the exhaust pipe to twist and bind up the bolt as it is removed.
  8. Remove the manifold to exhaust pipe bolts from the exhaust pipe flange as follows:
    1. Unscrew either bolt clockwise 4 turns.
    2. Remove the other bolt.
    3. Remove the first bolt.
  9. Pull down and back on the exhaust pipe to disengage it from the exhaust manifold bolts.
  10. Remove the radiator outlet pipe from the oil pan and transaxle. If equipped with a manual transaxle, remove the exhaust manifold brace. Leave the lower radiator hose attached and pull down on the outlet pipe to remove it from the water pump.
  11. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  12. Remove the exhaust manifold, seals and gaskets.
  13. Loosen and reposition the rear engine mount and bracket for clearance, as required.
  14. Remove the water pump mounting bolts and nuts. Remove the water pump and cover assembly, then separate the two pieces.

How do I replace a water pump on a 1999 malibou with a quad 4?


Water Pump REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old. 2.4L Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable
  2. Detach the Oxygen (O2) sensor electrical connector.
  3. Properly drain the engine coolant into a suitable container. Remove the heater hose from the thermostat housing for a more complete coolant drain.

How to replace the water pump on 1993 oldsmoblie achieva.


2.4 enigine is the harder of the 3 enignes. it will need a timing chain to be removed and a coolant tube in the back of the engine to be removed. this job on the book calls for almost 7 hours.

if its 3.3 or 3100 its alot easier.

3100 is just 4 10mm pulley bolts and 5 or 6 small 8mm water pump bolts.

3.3 is alittle more work, but same concept as 3100 engine. more owkr only cause its in a tighter area.

good luck,

Heater Core Leaking 2001 GMC Sierra 5.3. I have a strong antifreeze smell in the cab and this morning the heater fogged up the windows. I have read that replacing the heater core also involves evacuating...


you could quick fix! but you will have no heat, 1st under the hood, look at the back of motor, follow all you're radiator hoses, take two hoses off the heater core stick a pipe that is big enough then clamp the pipe down. to both sides of hoses to the pipe you will eventually have to replace heater core!!
