Go to the autozone website at autozone.com and register your vehicle. It's free and will give you access to an online repair manual for your vehicle. The steps and procedures for changing the water pump on your vehicle can be found there. ( I checked) Hope this helped and best wishes.

could be Fuel Injectors, are bad ?
all you need is # 1 Fuel Injector, to go out that will not get Fire, and Fuel Mixture to Spark Plug.

the water pump is timing chain driven and to replace it requires serious disassembly of the engine. it is a 13 + hour job and is not for the casual mechanic

so i just replaced my water pump today on the same car, mine is a 5.9 magnum. I drained the whole system before i started working on it, next you have to take off the fan, if you look on the inner side of the fan there is a big nut there, in order to loosen that i put to bolts into the holes on the water pump pulley and used a thin screwdriver for leverage, while putting pressure on that, i loosened the nut, be careful not to slip cuz those fan blades are dangerous. but once you have removed that nut from the pulley take out the four bolts holding on the housing, pull the fan and the housing out at the same time. next remove the belt, after that is done, disconnect the hoses from the water pump, there are three, one on each side and one on top. there are a total of eight bolts holding the pump on, keep track of them because they are different sizes. But that is how i removed mine. It was all farely simple i am a girl and i managed to do it so i think you should be fine. Hope it works for you becuase it didnt work for me, i now think that it is my head leaking, if you know anything about that let me know.

I would attempt to take the fan blade off the water pump, then remove the fan shroud off the radiator but leave the radiator in the car.. it may take a little more finesse but save you alot of time..

I,m assuming you mean the metal part of the bypass hose. Looking at water pump drivers side is a small metal tube hooked to heater hose. The tube is bolted through a alum bracket. Remove bolt and pull tube out. May need to spray with penetrating oil as these corrode, and are stubborn Make sure vehicle is not hot. No need to drain coolant as it will come out of bypass hole. have drain bucket ready. Do not reuse o- ring as it will leak.
