Try to disconnect battery for at least 10 minutes, use the brake in the meantime (for residual power-use) and then reconnect. Sometimes it will reset the ecu.

probably a dumb question but was the engine block skimmed and on certain cars you get different thickness gaskets for different performance heads, and is the timing correct?

Just need to know were the water pump on montero sport 1998 3.0 Ls engine????


It's under the timing cover on the front of the engine. I have pasted autozone.com instructions to replace the water pump below.


3.0L & 3.5L Engines

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. If necessary, properly release the fuel pressure.
  3. Drain the cooling system.
  4. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Negative battery cable
CAUTION Wait at least 90 seconds after the negative battery cable is disconnected to prevent possible deployment of the air bag.

Upper radiator shroud Accessory belts Air conditioning compressor tensioner pulley, if equipped Cooling fan and clutch assembly and the water pump pulley Thermostat and housing on 3.0L, 3.5L engines Water outlet, gasket and houses Radiator hoses from the water pump Crankshaft pulley(s) Timing belt covers. If the same timing belt will be reused, mark the direction of the timing belt's rotation, for installation in the same direction. Be sure the engine is positioned so the No. 1 cylinder is at the TDC of its compression stroke and the sprockets timing marks are aligned with the engine's timing mark indicators. Timing belt Water pump bolts are different lengths, note their positions before removing. Water pump from the block Water pipe connection and O-ring

To install:
  1. Clean and dry the mating surfaces of the block and water pump
  2. Install or connect the following:

    New O-ring on the water pipe connection, wet the new O-ring with water to aid in installation Water pump, with a new gasket, Torque the bolts to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm) on 3.0L and 3.5L engines Alternator bracket bolt to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm) Timing belt(s) and covers Crankshaft pulley(s) Thermostat and housing on 3.0L, 3.5L engines. Torque the bolts to 12-14 ft. lbs. (17-20 Nm). Radiator hose to the water pump Water outlet, new gasket and houses. Torque the bolts to 12-14 ft. lbs. (17-20 Nm). Water pump pulley Cooling fan and clutch assembly Air conditioning compressor tensioner pulley, if equipped Accessory belts Upper radiator shroud Thermostat and housing on 3.0L, 3.5L engines Negative battery cable
  3. Refill the radiator with coolant. This cooling system has a self-bleeding thermostat, so system bleeding is not required.
  4. Run the vehicle until the thermostat opens and fill the overflow tank. Check for leaks.
  5. Once the vehicle has cooled, recheck the coolant level.

Water pump is out. How do I get id out to replace


is it a 4 or a 6 cylinder engine, well you need to take off the fan clutch if it has one if not skip the step; its just 4 screws, then take off the acc belt, then take off the hose that goes from the radiator to the water pump; at the water pump, then remove the screws holding the water pump; make note what screw goes where some screws may be different sizes; in some 4 cyl 2.3L engines the timing belt cover has to be removed to remove the water pump, then remove the water pump, scrap off all gasket residue from the surface of the engine, take automotive silicone gasket maker and apply a small amount to the new water pump and level it out then put the included gasket over the silicone, then let it set for a couple of minutes, apply a bit more of silicone over the gasket and again let it set then replace the water pump, replace the screws and tighten all of them snug then go back and torque them between 20 and 25ft lb, replace the water hose, replace timming belt cover if removed, replace acc belt, and finally replace the fan clutch and your all set i hope you can get the job done
