It depends upon you skill level and the tools you posses, you need to disconnect the battery terminal and drain the radiator then remove all drive belts, remove the pulley on the water pump, if attempting I would recommend purchasing a $20.00 Haynes repair manual to walk you throught he procedure so you don't get in trouble the cooling system on 4 cylinders are critical considering any over heating issues can warp cylinder heads from over heating just once. do it right the first time

Water pump

Purchase a Haynes manual for your car, it will walk you through the removal of old pump and installation of new pump. Do not purchase a rebuilt water pump, purchase a new water pump, pump gasket and thermostat with gasket.
I have replaced several Chevrolet water pumps, if your car is a front wheel drive you will have to support the engine from the bottom with a floor jack in order to disassemble the motor mount in front of the water pump.

This is not that difficult of a repair but you will need metric and fraction size wrenches and sockets. Since some of your car is built in USA and Mexico or Canada this is how it is.

I hope this helps you! Good luck.

I am about to have my water pump changed on my 1996 Nissan Maxima. If there is water in my oil what other problem could it be beside the water pump? Thanks, Sandie

I just had to changed my water pump today. Its not the difficult for person handy with tools and a common sense demeanor for cars. Unfortunately, if its not the water pump, then its most likely the Head Gasket.

Does your oil look milky or foamy? If so go to next...

Do you see water with antifreeze dripping under your cars motor near the passenger front tire? "If so, then its most likely your Water Pump Problem"

If not, then its your head gasket!

Grand Marquis LS 2004 smoking under hood on drivers side what is possibility of being gasket? no broken hoses ..not short on oil. no radiator or heater problems. ..brand new thermostat installed...

This model uses a composite (some would say plastic) intake manifold, which has been known to develop cracks in the area of the thermostat housing. In addition, the water pump has a pipe to the back of it that emerges in the rear of the intake manifold. Both of these areas peculiar to this motor are known to leak coolant. In its history, many of these plastic manifolds had to be replaced, and there were even techinical bulletins from Ford on them. If you have leak in the tube or pipe that goes under the intake manifold to the back of the water pump, then you will likely want the dealer to fix it, as you may need a new water pump.
Two things then to watch: 1) coolant level and color and 2) any signs of leakage behind the main serpentine belt in the area of the water pump.
Since the serpentine belt is large on the 4.6L motor, and due to its rotation, it is possible that you only have a bad water pump and that the liquid is being thrown by the rotation of the motor. The water pump is not a difficult repair, as it comes off with only a few cap screws. However, if it is detached from the rear inlet pipe (as I mentioned above), it would require that the manifold be removed for it to be reattached. This is not a difficult job, but is very time consuming.

1996 plymouth breeze, leaking water pump. how

this depends on your level of mechanical expertise - it is an internal water pump, meaning you will need to disassemble the timing components to service (this is also a good time to replace the timing belt, as it needs to come off anyways and the belt is relatively inexpensive). if your vehicle has the 2.4 liter engine, there is nothing very difficult about this timing belt. however, i tend to caution people about attempting this if they are inexperienced, as reassembling the timing components incorrectly can cost you and engine. good luck!

Where is the water pump

It is in a housing at the back of the motor, on the radiator side. There is a belt going to it. They make a tool to remove the water pump, they are extremely difficult to remove.

Where ie the water pump on a 2004 jaguar X-type

The serpentine belt is on the left side of the motor. You will notice another belt on the right side of the motor to the left of the battery. You will have to remove the battery to get to the belt and water pump. If the leak is in this area then you probably have a bad water pump. It is not that difficult to replace.

How do you replace the water pump?

the water pump is driven by the timing belt and should be replaced at the same time. the valve timing on this car is crucial and difficult and if you are not familiar with this motor,i recommend you find someone who is.if you do it yourself the parts store should be able to give you a timing mark printout when you purchase the timing belt.
