If you dont have the tool to remove the clutch fan you will need that first. Then its simple. Just remove the pulley then the bolts on the water pump. Remove the pump.

I have a 2002 chevy trailblazer that has a lot of coolant coming out of the water pump does this mean the water pump needs replacement?


Yes it does. It is coming out of the air exchange hole meaning the seal around the pump shaft has went bad. Mike

Hi there camcam,

Ok, first off the cooling system has to be full and circulating for the heater to work. When we get the rest of it solved, the heater will take care of itself.

Now the overheat problem. We need to determine if the engine is overheating because of lack of coolant or the lack of coolant is because of the overheating (Boiling off).

If you have to put in any significant amount of water on a regular basis, it has to be going somewhere. If there is a pool of coolant forming under the car, there's a leak. You need to locate it and act according to where you find it.

  • Radiator - weld or replace
  • Hoses - replace
  • Water pump - replace (check fan if attached, for balance)
The thermostat is a temperature triggered valve that periodically routes coolant circulation through the radiator. This allows hot water from the engine to be exchanged with cool water from the radiator.

A malfunctioning thermostat doesn't allow the heat exchange process, the engine overheats, coolant turns to steam....

Although rarer, the same result occurs if the water pump does not circulate coolant. When a water pump fails, it's usually leaking through a shaft seal.

So, if you don't find a leak, the thermostat is the first (and least expensive) thing to address.

I hope you find this to be instrumental in solving your problem.

Best regards
Mike

Oil in Coolant


Most likely a head gasket leak between coolant channels and oil channels. Need a radiator pressure guage and pump to test holding pressure in coolant system. No oil/water heat exchangers on your car. Usually just a head gasket replacement.

Hi Scott_har892
In shortr yes,
If it's getting close to a timing belt change and or the water pump is about to fail do them both at the same time with the radiator removed (just makes it so much easier) while your are at it do the timing cover seals as well
