    Prepare the Dodge Intrepid
  1. Step 1 Lay out a drop cloth underneath the Dodge2_bing.gif Intrepid to protect the floor from coolant spills. Designate an area to lay out each part alongside its bolts and connecting hoses and wires. Use a drop cloth here as well, some of the parts will have traces of grease and coolant.
  2. Step 2 Disconnect the negative battery cable, using a screwdriver to unscrew the clamp that secures the cable to the negative (-) post. Pull the cable away from the battery post.
  3. Step 3 Use a jack to elevate the Dodge Intrepid and jack stands to shore up the jack. Release the pressure in the radiator by removing the cap. Take out the drain plug located underneath the radiator. Catch the coolant in a resealable container
  4. Step 4 Use a grease pencil to mark on the timing belt2_bing.gif its position in each pulley before removal. This will save time when reinstalling. If needed, replace the timing belt and skip marking the old one.
    Remove the Damaged Pump
  5. Step 1 Locate the water pump on the Dodge Intrepid. It's mounted on the front of the engine block and connected to the radiator and various other parts through a series of hoses. It's rotated by the timing belt. Study these parts, as you'll have to remove them.
  6. Step 2 Disconnect or remove the parts in front of the water pump, using an adjustable wrench. In the most common Dodge Intrepid engine--the 2.7L--you'll find, in order: the upper radiator crossmember, fan module, accessory drive belts, crankshaft damper, timing cover, timing chain and guide wires.
  7. Step 3 Unbolt the water pump from the engine block, using an adjustable wrench. You may have to use a chisel to gently break the seal between the mount and the pump. Discard both the pump and the bolts.
  8. Step 4 Clean off the mounting area with a shop rag.
    Install the New Pump
  9. Step 1 Inspect the new water pump to ensure it's identical to the old pump and free of any metal splinters or debris.
  10. Step 2 Arrange the new water pump on the mount. You won't need sealant for the o-ring on a Dodge Intrepid. Hold the water pump and o-ring in place as you secure it with the new bolts. Tighten them with a torque wrench to 105 inch pounds torque in any order.
  11. Step 3 Install the timing belt and wires, using the grease pencil marks to guide you in installation. Install the rest of the parts in the order removed. The camshaft must be reconnected with a torque wrench at 125 foot pounds torque.
  12. Step 4 Replace the radiator's drain plug and refill the radiator with the amount and type of coolant specified in your owner's manual. Release the jack and jack stands.
  13. Step 5 Attach the negative battery cable to the post and tighten the screw on the clamp. Crank the Dodge Intrepid's engine and check for leaks. Then, close the hood.

How do i change the water pump on my 1996 toyota corolla

The water pump is driven by the timing belt. You should plan to replace the belt while you are in there. Below is a picture that shows the pump. and a link to show the steps.

This link I got from another sight. "Go to sign up and put in your year, make and model and under repair guides click on engine/engine overhaul and on the left hand side you will see water pump click on that, there you will find complete diagrams" From

Need to replace water pump on 2.4 litre sunfire gt

If you must do this yourself, I suggest that you get a guide from Chilton or Haynes at the auto parts store where you will be buying the new water pump. Since you will be draining the cooling system, now would be the time to change the thermostat and hoses if they haven't been touched in awhile. The guides will provide pictures for each step and fill in anything that I could miss. You will need to check with the parts counter and see if you need a paper gasket, RTV sealant or both and get a plastic scraper for taking off the old gasket. You will also need something to drain the old coolant into and buy new coolant to put back in. If you are taking the hoses out, get new clamps to ensure a tight fit. You might need a razor blade to cut the old ones off their fittings.
The basics of this procedure are that you will be removing the belts that drive the pump and other accessories; you will be removing both the fan and the fan shroud; you will remove the pump itself. While you are in there, it may be a good time to change the timing belt if it has one. Again, the guides will show you how to do this.
