Question about Mazda Millenia
There are about 6 bolts that hold the actual water pump on, it is located near mid front engine & is behind the center pulley. It is not the kind of job that I recommend for a totally inexperienced person but if you know how to use RTV to seal gaskets & torque the bolts to the proper amount when assembling things, it's not too tough. On either engine in the millenia you will have disconnect the neg. battery cable, drain cooling system & recycle anti-freeze, it is toxic to animals & humans so clean up any spills & cover any containers, remove the accessories & accessory belts & hoses and any brackets that block the access to the pump as well as the engine compartment trim covers & you should be able to remove the 4 bolts that hold the pulley in place which should provide you with access to the 6 or 7 bolts that hold the pump onto the front of the engine. Once those bolts are removed, carefully pry the pump off, becareful not to damage the mating surfaces when attempting to seperate the pump. Look at your new pump before you start & this will provide you with a lot of information about what you are removing. Pay close attention to the lengths & locations of the bolts being removed (make notes) as well as any thread size differences to be sure & replace them exactly where they were. Fill the system & check for leaks once done & you should be fine. I always start them & let them get to operating temp, allow them to cool & recheck the fluids. Not a bad idea to have someone on call who has done this type of job before but if you're persistant, it's a good learning experience. If it overheated, the thermostat should also be replaced! There are some good manuals that will also give you step by step instructions at the local auto parts stores. Good Luck.

There are two pulleys running in this engine, and the waterpump runs on the second pully behind a case. so you have to take almost everything off to get at it. Then, the waterpump is actually the belt tensioner for that pulley system. it is excentric (sp?) so when you turn it in place, it tightens the belt. then you secure it back with three bolts. The belt system in question connects the drive shaft with the cam shaft, So you do have to be Very Careful with the belt/ pulley alignment. i marked the pulleys very very carefully so i could get everything lined up again.

Look online for parts stores. O'reilly, autozone for a few. They have online manuals for free. Sometimes you may have to register which is for free too.
