How do you replace the water pump on a 2001 Buick Park Avenue


To get the water pump off the 3.1 l v6, first release the belt by releasing the belt tensioner. Remove the 4 10mm pulley bolts. Then remove the 6 8mm water pump bolts. Have a pan under the car to catch the coolant. Be sure no pressure in the system before you begin. Scrape off old gasket, and install new pump. Open cooling system bleeder screw which is located on the top of the pipe just above the water pump. Fill with coolant. After a few minutes the level will go down as the air comes out. Fill again until coolant comes out of the bleeder, then close it. Dont fill up to the top of radiator, as it will expand as it gets hot. After the thermostat open, then level will drop, then fill all the way and re-install cap. Thank you, hope it goes smooth, mike

INSTRUCTIONS TO REPLACE WATER PUMPNON 1996 BUICK PARK AVENUE


  • When replacing a water pump, it is necessary to drain the cooling system.
  • Any components--belts, fan, fan shroud, shaft spacers, or viscous drive clutch--should be removed to make the pump accessible. Some pumps are attached to the cylinder block as shown below.

  • Loosen and remove the bolts in a crisscross pattern from the center outward.
  • Insert a rag into the block opening and scrape off any remains of the old gasket.
WARNING When working on the coolant system (for example, replacing the water pump or thermostat), a certain amount of coolant will spill on the floor. The antifreeze in the coolant causes it to be very slippery. Always immediately wipe up any coolant that spills to reduce or eliminate the chance of injury.
  • When replacing a water pump, always follow the procedures recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Most often a coating of good waterproof sealer should be applied to a new gasket before it is placed into position on the water pump.
  • Coat the other side of the gasket with sealer, and position the pump against the engine block until it is properly seated.
  • Install the mounting bolts and tighten them evenly in a staggered sequence to the torque specifications with a torque wrench. Careless tightening could cause the pump housing to crack. Check the pump to make sure it rotates freely.
  • The water pumps on many late-model OHC engines are driven by the engine's timing belt. When replacing the water pump on these engines, always replace the timing belt.
  • Make sure all pulleys and gears are aligned according to specifications when installing the belt.

My park avenue stalls when the tank is 1/4 full is this my fule pumb and how do I get to it


You could have a bad fuel gauge sending unit, fuel pump or a crack in the rubber hose which connects the fuel pump to the steel line. All 3 of these items are located in the fuel tank, so you would have to drop the fuel tank and remove the pump/sending unit assembly to inspect it. The unit can be found on the top of the fuel tank. Also check the filter on the inlet end of the fuel pump. It may be partially clogged. If it is clogged, replace it and clean out the fuel tank. Charlie
