1999 2.3 supercharged mazda millenia s; need user/repair manual and help fixing/replacing water pump


Hello, Here are the steps for removing and reinstalling your water pump.
Removal
  1. Disconnect the positive battery cable.
  2. Put a drain pan under the radiator and drain the coolant. Drain the coolant out via the drain plug on the radiator.
  3. When drained close the drain plug.
  4. Put another drain pan under the timing belt cover.
  5. Now you need to remove the timing belt cover.
  6. Use a ratchet and remove all the bolts to the time belt cover.
  7. Remove timing belt cover.
  8. When you get the cover off remove the timing belt.
  9. ***NOTE*** due to the time, labor and potential cost of replacing the water pump and the fact that the timing belt is right there it is recommend to put a new timing belt on during the installation process.
  10. Remove the bolts that secure the coolant inlet pipe with a ratchet.
  11. Remove the pipe and gasket.
  12. Remove the belt and idler pulley attached to the water pump. Don't get and coolant or grease on it.
  13. Now you need to remove the mounting bolts from the water pump with a ratchet.
  14. Remove the pump.
  15. Inspect the seating of the gasket real well.
  16. Remove all the crud off it with a lint free rag, I repeat lint free rag.
Now to install the new water pump
  1. Install the new water pump with the new gaskets provided. Never reuse the old gaskets.
  2. Install mounting bolts and torque them at 14-18 foot pounds.
  3. There is a bolt that will connect the alternator bracket to the water pump that needs to be torqued at 23-38 foot-pounds.
  4. Reinstall the idler pulleys and tighten down with your ratchet.
  5. Replace the gasket for the coolant intake pipe with the new gasket.
  6. Now torque the remaining bolts to 14-18 foot pounds.
  7. Slide the [hopefully new] timing belt back.
  8. Reattach the timing covers.
  9. Tighten them bolts with your ratchet.
  10. Use a mix of 50% water and 50% antifreeze and fill up the radiator and overfill.
  11. Squeeze the radiator hoses a few times to get the air out of the hoses.
  12. Hook your battery back up.
  13. Start the car and let it heat up to full running temperature, with the heat on and check for leaks.
  14. Now top off the coolant level again.
  15. Go for a short drive.
  16. Reinspect for leak.
  17. End of job.

2005 kia spectra over heating


Did you install a new thermostat and make sure to bleed all the air out of the system when you replaced the radiator? If you didn't, or installed a Stant thermostat, replace it with a FACTORY OEM thermostat. Make sure the cooling system is bled by opening your radiator cap (WHILE THE CAR IS OFF AND COLD), starting the car and running the heater. Add coolant to the radiator as the engine heats up, until is at normal operating temperature AND starts spitting coolant back out.

Hope this helps,

  3. Lubricate the radiator outlet pipe O-ring with antifreeze and slide the pipe onto the water pump cover. Install the bolts finger-tight.
  4. With all gaps closed, tighten the bolts, in the following sequence, to the proper values:
    1. Pump assembly-to-chain housing nuts:19 ft. lbs. (26 Nm).
    2. Pump cover-to-pump assembly: 106 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
    3. Cover-to-block, bottom bolt first: 19 ft. lbs. (26 Nm).
    4. Radiator outlet pipe assembly-to-pump cover: 125 inch lbs. (14 Nm).
  5. Using new gaskets, install the exhaust manifold. Make sure to following the tightening sequence and torque specifications given in the exhaust manifold procedure located in this section.
  6. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  7. Index the exhaust manifold bolts into the exhaust pipe flange.
  8. Connect the exhaust pipe to the manifold. Install the exhaust pipe flange bolts evenly and gradually to avoid binding. Turn the bolts in until fully seated.
  9. Connect the radiator outlet pipe to the transaxle and oil pan.
  10. Install the timing chain tensioner and front cover.
  11. Install the lower heat shield.
  12. Carefully lower the vehicle.
