The water pump does not need to be timed.

The cam gears and crank gear are all that need to be timed together during reassembly

Can't find TDC timing mark on 3.1 L 5cyl. diesel


i guess you have removed the front cover exzposing the timing gears.
find the crankshaft and turn it until the two dots are at the top. the next sprocket should then have one dot aligned with the two on the crank. to the right of this sprocket you should see two dots alined with the one dot on the adjacent sprocket to the right, this in turn should have a corresponding dot aligned. this last sprocket has two ots to the right side which then align with the pump sprocket.
your pump sprocket had A and B marked on it.
the tooth on the pump sprocket marked B should then be aligned bwteen the two dots on the adjacvent sprocket. the pump is now timed. put on the pump sprocket nut and tighten to 86 Nm.
the 4 bolts holding the pump to the plate should be slightly loose in order to fine tune the pump once its running. dont forget to tioghten them after you get it set up..
check out the diagram for the gran cherokee 2.5 diesel which although is a 4 cylinder sis the only other diesel in the cgerokee range that gas timing gears and not chqains.
this diagram is exactly the same as the 3.1

I have this 89 acura legend 2.7l v6 timing belt removed and the water pump removed, the old pump failed which caused the belt to fail, i have new parts and the pump installed only i dont understand to...


Hi, here is what you need to do. Get all of the timing marks lined up as indicated in the picture below. Put the belt on. Without moving the gears off their marks, make the belt tight across the cam gears and then down the right side to the crank gear. All of the slack must be on the left side to be taken up by the tensioner. Release the tensioner to tighten the belt and then verify the marks are still aligned. If the marks are not aligned, loosen the tensioner just enough to turn the gear that needs to be realigned. After tensioning the belt, rotate the crankshaft clockwise 720 degrees and recheck the timing marks. I have pasted the book procedure below. Please let me know if you still have questions. You must get this right.

  1. If the crankshaft or camshafts have been turned with the timing belt removed, remove the spark plugs and advance the crankshaft about 15 degrees beyond TDC of No. 1 cylinder. Make sure the camshaft sprockets are properly aligned with the marks and return the crankshaft to the TDC mark.
  2. Install the belt in sequence on the crankshaft, the front camshaft, water pump and tensioner pulleys, then the rear camshaft.
  3. To adjust the tension, loosen the tensioner pulley bolt about 1 / 2 turn. The spring will automatically set the proper tension. Torque the bolt to 31 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  4. Rotate the crankshaft 6 turns clockwise and check that the timing marks on the crankshaft and camshafts align properly. Adjust the timing belt tension again by rotating the crankshaft to the align the blue mark on the pulley with the pointer. Loosen and retorque the tensioner pulley bolt.
  5. Install the remaining parts in reverse order. Torque the crankshaft pulley bolt to 83 ft. lbs. (115 Nm). When installing the side mount bracket, torque the bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (55 Nm).

    To install:
  7. Turn the crankshaft and the camshaft gears clockwise to align the timing marks on the gears with the timing marks on the rear cover.
  8. Install the timing belt, making sure the portion between the camshaft gear and crankcase gear is in tension.
  9. Using tool J–33039 or equivalent, turn the water pump eccentric clockwise until the tensioner contacts the high torque stop. Tighten the water pump screws slightly.
  10. Turn the engine by the crankshaft gear bolt 720°to fully seat the belt into the gear teeth.
  11. Turn the water pump eccentric counterclockwise until the hole in the tensioner arm is aligned with the hole in the base.
  12. Tighten the water pump screws to 18 ft. lbs. (24 Nm), while checking that the tensioner holes remain as adjusted in the prior step.
  13. Install the crankshaft pulley, timing belt cover and the serpentine drive belt.

  14. Turn the engine by the crankshaft gear bolt 720°clockwise to fully seat the belt into the gear teeth.
  15. Turn the coolant pump eccentric counter clockwise until the hole in the tensioner arm is aligned with the hole in the base. This must be done with the engine at room temperature, approximately 68°F (20°C).
  16. Tighten the water pump screws while checking that the tensioner holes remain as adjusted as in step 15.
  17. As outlined earlier, install the timing belt cover.

How do i replace a water pump on a 1994 mazda protege


1.u need to jack the car up so u can take the passenger tire off. align the crank timing mark to top dead center with the front timing belt cover. 2. u need to loosen the crank bolt with am impact wrench, or secure the flywheel and lossen the crank bolt .3. u need a 10mm short 1/4 inch socket/or wrench inch to loosen the (4) water pump nuts. 4. i now recommend u loosen the alternator, u do not need to remove it. 5. if u have air-conditioning..i suggest u leave it on. remove the belt 6. powersteering can be loosened as well, 7. once u remove the crank pulley..u can take the 10 mm blots out of the timing belt/water pump covers.u will also need to support the engine(under the oli pan is ok) and remove the upper passenger side motor mount. 8. u will now see the timing belt. u need to remove it by loosening the tension pulley (14 mmm bolt) .u should make sure the crank is tdc. but u just need to make sure that when u re-install the new timing belt(whichu better do when u do a water pump)...,make sure the exhaust and intake cam shaft pulleys are aligned.(exhaust pulley is front side of car, intake is rear.)(e-for exhaust,i -for intake....they're aligned at center of each other (center of engine)now i must take a pee,brb in a minute. remove timing belt now 9. remove (5) 12 mm bolts from water pump. clean surface. 10. re-install in complete reverse order.i do recommend u use a black rtv gasket sealer on ur water pump gasket.(screw manufacturers statements on this use). tart with taking your two belts off, remove motor mount, remove power steering pump, crank pulley,next remove timing belt covers along with tensioners. Remove valve cover. timing belt tensioner, now you have access to the water pump. remember your timing marks before you remove. When installing timing belt hold camshaffts with vise grips to align. installation opposite of removal.

WE NEED TO REPLACE THE WATER PUMP ON OUR 1998 OLDS AURORA 4.OL what do we need special and how do we do it


  • 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.
f11-60.jpg Installing a water pump. Courtesy of Dana Corporation.
  • 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.
