How do you take the water pump on a 2001 chevy impala off.

The first thing you do is disconnect one of the battery cables, remove the over flow canister , make sure you leave the hose on, there will be enough room to lay it out of the way, you will need a 10 mil socket or wrench. you will have to remove the serpentine belt before you began., you will need a half inch drive ratchet tool to take off the belt tension, it is located right around the idler pulley ( note loosen the four bolts from the water pump pulley before you remove the the serpentine belt, then remove the bolts on the water pump, you will have to use a ten mil socket for this) also be careful not to lose the bolts, sometimes they will fall down on the ground if your lucky & sometime it drop some where on the frame. ( hard to find.). Once you get the pump off, make sure you a putty knife to scrape off the old gasket on the engine and make sure you glue the gasket to the water pump and let the glue set up before you install the new pump.Make sure you drain the antifreeze first. when you a finished pour antifreeze in radiator be careful not to overflow.Next start the car and let it idle, when the right obtained pour some more antifreeze in until the radiator is full, replace the cap and check for leaks, if no leaks then drive the car for about 15 min., then recheck for leaks.

Car pouring coolant from underneath the radiator

Can be several things. Bad Radiator, Bad hoses on radiator, or nearby water pump is leaking.

They make a Radiator pressure tester which will put pressure in the system so you can see where the leak is coming from.

My rodeo started shooting steam out i filled it with coolant and during my 1 mile trip home water was pouring out from underneath,i poped hood,cap was on but steam was coming from below engine,help

Hi there,

Hopefully there is a hole in one of the hoses (least expensive).

No matter what, you need to find the source of the leak. A flashlight will be useful.

When the engine is cool, pour water in the radiator. You shouldn't need to run the engine.

When it starts dripping, look for the leak on:
  • The radiator
  • Large hoses leading to and from the radiator
  • Heater hoses (smaller leading to firewall)
  • Water pump (on the engine)
Once you find it, the severity and type of problem will dictated whether to fix or replace the damaged part.

I have a Eurovan and it doesn't hold water. It goes right to the ground. Is that a cracked head?

It could be a cracked head, a cracked engine block, a torn hose, a really bad water pump, a bad radiator...Pretty much anything. You have to look to see exactly where it is coming from when you pour the water in.

2001 taurus v-6 overheated and now have water leak at rear of engine. Water comes out of starter casing at the bottom also, also from sheet metal cover to bottom of transmission on engine side, also from...

your antifreeze mix wasn't strong enough so the frost plug/s could've busted. raise the vehicule and inspect while an assistant pours water in the radiator to find leak. next, solve all the leaks and all should be good

2002 Chevy impala overheating. Replaced radiator, water pump (thermostat is working properly). Not sure if radiator was bleed out correctly. Car is still overheating and fluid leaking out the bottom...

Engine size? if it has a leak, that is first priority. There may be bleeder screws at the thermostat housing, and the water by pass pipe. just open them slightly until coolant comes out.

Check engine on, coolant overheating, i already change water pump, but water hose is with a lot of pressure, do you think can be air on water system?

All car cooling systems have at least 10lb pressure, check with your manufacturer on your car's radiator pressure cap or local parts supplier. If pressure is alot more then I would suspect a leaking head gasket.

Easiest test for the obvious leaking head gasket is when the engineis cold / remove the radiator cap and fill right to the top with water and crank / start engine. If you see a mini "guyser" of water come out then head (S) need to come off.

You haven't mentioned whether its actually losing . using water??
