Water pump going out how do i replace it

  • Removal of the Fan Shroud and Drive Belts
    • 1 Drain the cooling system. Place a waste oil collection pan underneath the petcock valve on the lower corner of the radiator. Open the petcock valve to drain the system.
    • 2 Remove the bolts that connect the fan shroud to the radiator core and remove the fan shroud.
    • 3 Loosen the alternator adjustment bolt and slide the alternator toward the engine. Remove the drive belt.
    • 4 Loosen the adjustment bolt for the air conditioning compressor, and slide the compressor toward the engine. Remove the drive belt.
    • 5 Loosen the adjustment bolt on the power steering pump and slide the pump toward the engine. Remove the drive belt.
  • Removal of the Water Pump
    • 1 Disconnect the bypass hose from the water pump by loosening the hose clamp and pulling the hose off the fitting.
    • 2 Remove the bolts that connect the water pump to the engine block, and remove the water pump and engine fan as an assembly.
    • 3 Remove the four retaining nuts that connect the fan assembly to the water pump. They will be located between the fluid coupling and the water pump pulley.
  • Installation of the Water Pump
    • 1 Attach the fan assembly to the new water pump by sliding the pulley then the fluid coupling onto the water pump and reinstalling the retaining nuts.
    • 2 Clean any old gasket material off the water pump mounting surface on the engine block.
    • 3 Place the new water pump gasket on the water pump mounting surface.
    • 4 Slide the new water pump into position and reinstall the mounting bolts.
    • 5 Reconnect the bypass hose by sliding the hose over the fitting and tightening the hose clamp.
  • Reinstalling the Drive Belts and Fan Shroud
    • 1 Reinstall the the drive belts for the power steering pump, air conditioning compressor and alternator. Tighten the adjusting bolts.
    • 2 Measure the deflection of each belt to make sure the belts are properly tightened. Measure deflection by placing a straight edge along the belt against the accessory pulley and the water pump pulley. Push down on the belt and measure the distance between the belt at the midpoint and the straight edge. It should be between 1/2 and 1/4 inch. Any more and the belt needs to be tightened. Loosen the adjustment and slide the accessory away from the engine to tighten.
    • 3 Drop the fan shroud into position and reinstall the bolts that secure it to the radiator.
    • 4 Close the petcock valve on the radiator and fill the cooling system with fresh coolant.
    • 5 Run the engine and visually inspect for leaks.

    I need to replace the water pump on my 2004 isuzu

    Tipping my hat to you... I would recommend going to an auto parts store like Autozone or O'Reilly and purchasing a Chilton repair manual, specific to your model. I always think it's a good idea to own a light repair manual if you're going to keep the car a while.
    Good luck with the project! You can do it!!

    Changing the water pump on 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee V6

    The water pump is bolted directly to the engine timing chain case/cover.

    A gasket is used as a seal between the water pump and timing chain case/cover.

    If water pump is replaced because of bearing/shaft damage, or leaking shaft seal, the mechanical cooling fan assembly should also be inspected. Inspect for fatigue cracks, loose blades, or loose rivets that could have resulted from excessive vibration. Replace fan if any of these conditions are found. Also check condition of the thermal viscous fan drive. Refer to Viscous Fan Drive in this group.

    The water pump can be removed without discharging the air conditioning system (if equipped)

    Disconnect negative battery cable from battery.
    Drain cooling system. Refer to Draining Cooling System in this group.
    Do not waste reusable coolant. If solution is clean, drain coolant into a clean container for reuse.

    The thermal viscous fan drive is attached (threaded) to the water pump hub shaft. Remove fan/viscous fan drive assembly from water pump by turning mounting nut counterclockwise as viewed from front. Threads on viscous fan drive are RIGHT HAND. Using special tool spanner wrench 6958 with adapter pins 8346 and a suitable fan wrench loosen the fan drive Viscous Fan and Fan Drive Do not attempt to remove fan/viscous fan drive assembly from vehicle at this time.

    CAUTION: A number or letter is stamped into the tongue of constant tension clamps. If replacement is necessary, use only an original equipment clamp with matching number or letter.

    If water pump is being replaced, do not unbolt fan blade assembly from thermal viscous fan drive.
    Remove two fan shroud-to-radiator nuts Fan Shroud Mounting Hardware Do not attempt to remove fan shroud at this time.
    Remove fan shroud and fan blade/viscous fan drive assembly from vehicle as a complete unit.
    After removing fan blade/viscous fan drive assembly, do not place thermal viscous fan drive in horizontal position. If stored horizontally, silicone fluid in viscous fan drive could drain into its bearing assembly and contaminate lubricant.
    Remove accessory drive belt as follows: The drive belt is equipped with a spring loaded automatic belt tensioner. Relax tension from belt by rotating tensioner clockwise (as viewed from front) Automatic Belt Tensioner - When all belt tension has been relaxed, remove accessory drive belt.
    Remove lower radiator hose clamp and remove lower hose at water pump.
    Remove seven water pump mounting bolts and one stud bolt
    CAUTION: Do not pry water pump at timing chain case/cover. The machined surfaces may be damaged resulting in leaks.

    Remove water pump and gasket. Discard gasket.
    Clean gasket mating surfaces.
    Using a new gasket, position water pump and install mounting bolts as shown. Water Pump Installation - Tighten water pump mounting bolts to 54 N·m (40 ft. lbs.) torque.
    Spin water pump to be sure that pump impeller does not rub against timing chain case/cover.
    Connect radiator lower hose to water pump.
    Relax tension from belt tensioner Automatic Belt Tensioner - Install drive belt
    CAUTION: When installing the serpentine accessory drive belt, belt must be routed correctly. If not, engine may overheat due to water pump rotating in wrong direction. Refer to Belt Routing for correct belt routing. Or, refer to the Belt Routing Label located in the engine compartment. The correct belt with correct length must be used.

    Position fan shroud and fan blade/viscous fan drive assembly to vehicle as a complete unit.
    Be sure the upper and lower portions of the fan shroud are firmly connected. All air must flow through the radiator.
    Install two fan shroud-to-radiator nuts Fan Shroud Mounting Hardware
    Be sure of at least 25 mm (1.0 inches) between tips of fan blades and fan shroud.
    Install fan blade/viscous fan drive assembly to water pump shaft.
    Fill cooling system. Refer to Refilling the Cooling System in this group.
    Connect negative battery cable.
    Start and warm the engine. Check for leaks
