How to replace waterpump on 1993 toyota camry?


  • 1

    Place the drain pan under the radiator petcock. Open the petcock and allow the antifreeze to drain. If the drain pan is clean and the antifreeze is less than five years old, you can reuse the antifreeze.

  • 2

    Place the block of wood on the floor jack. Slide the jack under the engine and raise the engine slightly. Unbolt and remove the front engine mount. On the 4A-GE engine, loosen the power steering and air conditioning belts by loosening the adjusting nuts or bolts on the slider bracket and sliding the accessory toward the engine. Remove the belts.

  • 3Loosen the water pump pulley bolts with the appropriate socket. Loosen the alternator locking bolt and the pivot nut. Push the alternator toward the engine to loosen the tension on the belt. Lift the belt off the pulleys.

  • 4

    Remove the four bolts on the water pump pulley using the appropriate socket. Remove the water pump pulley. Disconnect the water inlet and bypass hoses from the inlet pipe using a screwdriver or pliers, depending on the type of clamp used.

  • 5

    Disconnect the water inlet pipe by removing the two clamp bolts and the two nuts behind the pump. Remove the inlet pipe. Remove the O-ring from the back of the pump. Remove the mounting bolt on the oil dipstick tube. Remove the tube and the dipstick. Plug the hole with a rag so that debris doesn't get into the crankcase and contaminate the oil.

  • 6

    Remove the upper and middle timing belt covers. Remove the water pump retaining bolts and pull the pump off the engine. Take care not to get any antifreeze on the timing belt.

  • 7

    Place the O-ring in its groove on the block. Install the water pump and tighten the bolts to 11 ft.-lbs. of torque. Reinstall the timing belt covers. Make sure they are seated properly and not touching the timing belt.

  • 8

    Coat a new oil dipstick O-ring with engine oil. Slide it on the dipstick. Reinstall the dipstick and the retaining bolt. Tighten the bolt to 82 in.-lbs. of torque. Place a new O-ring on the inlet pipe for the water pump. Reinstall the inlet pipe. Attach the clamps and bolts that hold the pipe in place. Tighten the bolts to 8 ft.-lbs. of torque.

  • 9

    Reconnect the inlet and bypass hoses to the pipe. Install the water pump pulley. Tighten the four pulley bolts enough to hold everything in place. Reinstall all the accessory drive belts and adjust the tension properly. You should be able to turn the belts 90 degrees when they are at the correct tension. The water pump should resist turning. Tighten the water pump pulley bolts to 17 ft.-lbs. of torque. Reinstall the engine mount. Tighten the petcock on the radiator. Refill the radiator.

    How to replace the water pump


    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.

    2S-ELC Engines

    1. Drain the cooling system.
    2. Remove the timing belt as described in this section.
    3. Remove the alternator adjusting bar.
    4. Disconnect the lower radiator hose from the water inlet housing.





      Fig. 1: Exploded view of the water pump mounting
      89553g42.gif



    5. Disconnect the water temperature switch from the water inlet housing.
    6. Disconnect the water by-pass hose from the water pump.
    7. Remove the two heater pipe clamp bolt. Remove the two nuts and heater pipe

    9. Remove the water pump and O-ring. If the water pump is stubborn, tap it a
      few times with a rubber mallet.
    10. Installation is the reverse of removal. Make sure all the water pump and
      engine contact surfaces are clean and install the new O-ring into the pump cover
      groove.
    11. Install the water pump with the three bolts. Tighten the bolts in sequence
      to 82 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
    12. Fill the cooling system to the proper level with a good brand of ethylene

    2. Disconnect the water temperature switch connector from the water inlet
      housing.
    3. Disconnect the lower radiator hose from the water inlet housing.
    4. Remove the timing belt and timing belt pulleys as described in this section.

    5. Remove the two nuts attaching the water by-pass pipe to the water pump
      cover.
    6. Remove the three water pump-to-engine attaching bolts.
    7. Pull the water pump and the water pump cover out from the engine.
    8. Remove the two O-rings and gasket. Discard them and replace with new.
    9. Installation is the reverse of removal. Secure the water pump onto the
      engine and install the three bolts. Tighten the bolts in an alternate pattern to
      82 inch lbs. (9 Nm). Install the by-pass pipe attaching nuts and tighten them to
      82 inch lbs. (9 Nm) also.
    10. Fill the cooling system to the proper level with coolant.
    11. Start the engine and check for leaks.

    5S-FE Engine

    1. Drain the engine coolant.
    2. Remove the timing belt.
    3. Remove the No. 1 idler pulley and tension spring. Remove the No. 2 idler
      pulley.
    4. Disconnect the lower radiator hose at the water inlet.
    5. Remove the alternator belt adjusting bar.
    6. Loosen the two nuts and disconnect the water by-pass pipe.

      install the nuts yet!
    9. With the pump loosely connected to the pipe, install the pump and tighten
      the three bolts to 82 inch lbs. (9 Nm), in sequence (top, bottom, middle).
      Install the two by-pass pipe nuts and tighten them to 78 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
    10. The remainder of installation is the reverse of removal. Tighten each
      component to specifications.

    2VZ-FE and 3VZ-FE Engines

    1. Drain the engine coolant.
    2. Disconnect the lower radiator hose at the water inlet.

    I am looking for a step by step How - to for removing my water pump and replacing it with a new one



    How to Replace the Water Pump in a Pontiac Grand Am The water pump is the heart of the Pontiac grand am's cooling system, circulating the coolant. A faulty water pump can cause some serious damage to the engine of your Pontiac Grand Am. To prolong the life of your vehicle's engine, make sure to change out a bad water pump.
    2.2L Grand Am Engine Disconnect the negative battery cables before you begin.Place a drain pan underneath the radiator. When the engine is cool, drain the cooling system from the radiator into the pan.Elevate the vehicle and remove the right front wheel, the splash shield, the water pump sprocket access plate and remove the exhaust manifold if your vehicle has an n automatic trans-axle.Use the water pump sprocket holding tool (Tool Part Number J 43651) and attach it to the sprocket with access plate bolts, securing the tool to the front cover of the engine.Remove the following bolts to remove the water pump: the three bolts attaching the pump to the engine block, the bolt to the engine front cover, the bolts to the sprocket and the bolt attaching the thermostat housing to the pump.Remove the old pump and install the new one, aligning the water pump sprocket to the hub with a threaded stud.Reinsert the engine cover bolt to the block to the pump, tightening the bolt to 15 foot pounds (20 Nm).
