James, I believe the pulley is just bolted to the pump shaft, so u should be able to remove it and reuse it. The play in it is in the shaft of the water pump, so the pulley should be fine, just remove and bolt to the new pump.

SOURCE: Is it bad to run an idle pulley in the "wrong" direction?

It would be in your best interest to just replace the wobbly (worn idle pulley) trying to jury rig something will only cause you further frustration in my experience.

the damper could be bad if it's the type with the rubber inbetween the pully and the the rest of the damper. check that and see if it is separated. if not looks like your crankshaft bearings could be bad

SOURCE: 4.9 litre noisy, wobbling pulley (between fan and engine)

Turn the motor off and move the pulley by hand, if theres alot of slop in it, change out the water pump.

SOURCE: slight noise from rear when accellerating, not from exhaust or mo

It is most likely a bad wheel bearing. I had my rear passenger wheel bearing break at 75000 miles. get it replaced and when you that, replace rotors and brakes to be on the safe side

Sounds like the idler pulley. It is what keeps tension on the surpentine belt. Usually a water pump will start dripping water through a small hole in pump that opens when the bearings go bad and start to wobble. You can spray some lube on idler pulley to see if it quiets it down some thou this is not a permanent fix. It will pinpoint the problem

Grating noise from engine compartment then belt thrown off. Is this the water pump?


I would check a few things before saying its the water pump.I would check the idler pulley and the belt tension er and all the other pulleys on the alternator and power steering pump to see if they wobble or grind because of worn bushings or bearings.Then while you have the belt off free spin the water pump and listen for any noises and wiggle the shaft to check for any movement.If it wobbles and scrapes it would have to be replaced.

I need to replace the water pump pully on my 4.9 is this difficult


Hello: That is not difficult to replace the pulley. If the pulley wobbles it is not the pulley.... The shaft bearing may be bad and that would make the pulley wobble. The pulley is held on with three bolts that have a 13mm head. If after removing the pulley you can move the shaft up and down you need a water pump.

2004 gmc envoy. has a 6cyl and a serp belt. the center pully off set to the left (i think its a water pump) has a bad wobble and making a horrible noise. Not over heating and no leaks. should i just change...


If the fan is attached to it than it is the water pump making the noise and it will need to be replaced. If the fan clutch is not attached to it than it is either the idler pulley or the tensioner pulley. The tensioner is on the passenger side (left) of the front of the motor.

Cannot remove the pulley from my 1991 olds cutlass ciera 's water pump. Its a 4cyl. Plus the new water pump doesn't look quite the same.


I replaced my water pump on my 92 olds, and the pulley will look slightly different because it's newer, but just make sure its the right one. The pulley does not come off of the water pump, both the water pump and pulley have to be changed. Your new one should come with both the pump and pulley already connected
