I am loosing water when poured into radiator right behind the tension pully on my 1994 chevy camaro out of a small hole could this be a freeze plug blown out


Water will pour out from a dislodged frost plug. You most likely have a leak from the water pump or intake manifold gasket. Also, check your heater hoses and water pump by pass hose for leaks.

My 1999 Alero must have a leak somewhere because the thermostat gauge rises every few days. I put coolant in it at least 1 a week. I had a new water pump and thermostat put on it, but it is still...


CHECK AROUND WATER PUMP AREA.AND THERMOSTAT HOUSING FOR LEAKS.THE MECHANIC WHO PUT THE WATER PUMP ON MAY FORGOT TO PUT SEALANT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE WATER PUMP GASKET CAUSING LEAKS.LOOK AROUND THERMOSTAT HOUSING FOR LEAKING.IF THERMOSTAT SEAL WAS DAMAGE DURING INSTALLATION IT WILL CAUSE LEAKING.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS AROUND RADIATOR .CHECK RADIATOR TOP AND BOTTOM HOSES FOR LEAKS AND CHECK HEATER PIPES AND HEATER CORES HOSES FOR LEAKS.IF ALL HOSES GOOD.CHECK FOR LEAKING CORE PLUGS.

1997 Dakota v8 water pump replacement steps


Hope this helps!

Common Steps
  1. Disconnect the battery negative cable(s).
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the accessory drive belt.
  4. Remove the lower radiator hose (except Diesel).
  5. Disconnect the heater hose from the pump, if fitted.

WARNING Most cooling system hoses use "constant tension" hose clamps. When removing or installing, use a tool designed for servicing this type of clamp. The clamps are stamped with a letter or number on the tongue. If replacement is necessary, use only an OEM clamp with a matching ID.



f90cf3b.gif
Heater hose pipe O-ring (arrow): twist gently when removing or installing; check condition; lubricate with coolant before installing

CAUTION Always wear safety glasses when servicing contact tension clamps.


  1. Always use a new gasket when installing the water pump. Clean mating surfaces thoroughly before installation.
  2. This would be a good time to replace radiator hoses. At least, inspect them carefully for aging or other damage.
  3. If the heater hose pipe was removed, use thread sealant or equivalent on the pipe threads (if threaded), or lubricate any O-rings with coolant before installing.
  4. Check the accessory belt routing against the plate in the engine compartment before starting engine.
  5. Allow the engine to reach operating temperature and check for leaks.

3.9L, 4.7L, 5.2L, 5.9L, 8.0L Gasoline Engines
  1. Carry out the "Common Steps" above.
  2. Remove the upper radiator hose.
  3. Remove the fan and shroud assembly.
  4. On engines except 4.7L, remove the four water pump pulley bolts and remove the pulley.
  5. Remove the heater hose pipe mounting bolt, if fitted.
  6. On engines except 4.7L, loosen the bypass hose clamp at the water pump.
  7. Remove the seven water pump mounting bolts and, on the 4.7L, one nut.

WARNING Bolts may be of different lengths. Be sure to note their locations.


To install:
  1. Reverse the removal procedure.
  2. The 8.0L engine uses an O-ring to seal. Use a new one and lubricate it with petroleum jelly before installation of the pump. Also, use sealant on the threads of the heater hose pipe, position the pipe as shown before installing the pump and tighten the nut to 12 ft. lbs. (16 Nm).
  3. On pushrod engines, connect the bypass hose to the pump while installing it.
  4. Tighten the bolts to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm) on pushrod engines, 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm) on the 4.7L engine.
  5. Spin pump to ensure the impeller is not rubbing against the timing chain case.
  6. When installing the heater hose pipe, ensure that the slot in the pipe bracket is bearing against the mounting bolt. This will hold the pipe in as far as possible to prevent leaks.
  7. Tighten pulley bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm) on V-6 and V-8, 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm) on the V-10.

2006 dodge dakota water pump replacement instructions 3.7L


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

  1. Disconnect battery negative cable.
  2. Drain cooling system. Refer to Draining and Filling found under Cooling System, Service and Repair.
  3. Do not waste reusable coolant. If solution is clean, drain coolant into a clean container for reuse. WARNING: CONSTANT TENSION HOSE CLAMPS ARE USED ON MOST COOLING SYSTEM HOSES. WHEN REMOVING OR INSTALLING, USE ONLY TOOLS DESIGNED FOR SERVICING THIS TYPE OF CLAMP, SUCH AS SPECIAL CLAMP TOOL (NUMBER 6094). SNAP-ON CLAMP TOOL (NUMBER HPC-20) MAY BE USED FOR LARGER CLAMPS. ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES WHEN SERVICING CONSTANT TENSION CLAMPS. 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.
  4. Remove upper radiator hose clamp and hose at radiator.
  5. 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. A Snap-On 36 MM Fan Wrench (number SP346 from Snap-On Cummins Diesel Tool Set number 2017DSP) can be used. Place a bar or screwdriver between water pump pulley bolts to prevent pulley from rotating. Do not attempt to remove fan/viscous fan drive assembly from vehicle at this time.
  6. 6. If water pump is being replaced, do not unbolt fan blade assembly from thermal viscous fan drive.
  7. Remove fan shroud attaching hardware (two bolts at bottom-two clips at top).
  8. Remove fan shroud and fan blade/viscous fan drive assembly from vehicle as a complete unit.
  9. 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.
  10. Do not remove water pump pulley bolts at this time.
  11. Remove accessory drive belt as follows: The drive belt is equipped with a spring loaded automatic tensioner. Relax tension from belt by rotating tensioner clockwise (as viewed from front). When all belt tension has been relaxed, remove accessory drive belt.
  12. 12. Remove four water pump pulley-to-water pump hub bolts and remove pulley from vehicle.
  13. Remove lower radiator hose clamp and remove lower hose at water pump.
  14. Remove heater hose clamp and heater hose from heater hose coolant return tube.
  15. Loosen heater hose coolant return tube mounting bolt and remove tube from water pump. Discard the old tube O-ring.
  16. Remove seven water pump mounting bolts.
  17. Loosen clamp at water pump end of bypass hose. Slip bypass hose from water pump while removing pump from vehicle. Discard old gasket. CAUTION: Do not pry water pump at timing chain case/cover. The machined surfaces may be damaged resulting in leaks.

INSTALLATION

  1. Clean gasket mating surfaces.
  2. Using a new gasket, install water pump to engine as follows: Guide water pump nipple into bypass hose as pump is being installed. Install water pump bolts. Tighten water pump mounting bolts to 40 Nm (30 ft. lbs.) torque.
  3. Position bypass hose clamp to bypass hose.
  4. Spin water pump to be sure that pump impeller does not rub against timing chain case/cover.
  5. Install a new O-ring to the heater hose coolant return tube. Coat the new O-ring with antifreeze before installation.
  6. Install coolant return tube and its mounting bolt to engine. Be sure the slot in tube bracket is bottomed to mounting bolt. This will properly position return tube.
  7. Connect radiator lower hose to water pump.
  8. Connect heater hose and hose clamp to coolant return tube.
  9. Install water pump pulley. Tighten bolts to 27 Nm (20 ft. lbs.) torque. Place a bar or screwdriver between water pump pulley bolts to prevent pulley from rotating.
  10. Relax tension from belt tensioner. Install accessory drive belt.
  11. CAUTION: When installing the serpentine accessory drive belt, the belt must be routed correctly. If not, engine may overheat due to water pump rotating in wrong direction. Refer to Illustration above for correct belt routing. The correct belt with correct length must be used.
  12. Position fan shroud and fan blade/viscous fan drive assembly to vehicle as a complete unit.
  13. Install fan shroud.
  14. Install fan blade/viscous fan drive assembly to water pump shaft.
  15. Fill cooling system.
  16. Connect battery negative cable.
  17. Start and warm the engine. Check for leaks.
