The only trick I recommend is getting the Haynes repair manual on the vehicle and following the direction in there to do the job. As far as parts are concerned one is pretty much the same as the other.

    That wouldn't be oil, it would be red coolant (Dexcool). Your new gasket material was probably felt or thin rubber, both are prone to leak brand new. The metal gaskets are the way to go WITH some sealant on them.

HOW DO YOU REMOVE A WATER PUMP FROM A 2006 CHEVY TRAILBLAZER WITH A 4.2 ENGINE


This will be a pain,but not really that hard.It's a matter of hand room.
The '06 uses a hydraulic fan clutch that you'll need a special tool to remove.Usually you can "borrow" one at Autozone.
I'm posting a link to a write up on removing the clutch assembly and pump.You'll have to register to view it though.

My trail blazer has something in the front end that is really growling. it started out just a slight noise, now it is really loud!! I don't feel anything like a wheel bearing being loose, just really loud.


Had the same problem in my 2004 Trailblazer. Finally figured out it was the air pump on the driver side right under the driver side floorboard. Took it off and it was full off water because of a design flow by Chevrolet. I took the pump off and emptied the water out and dried it out real good and the noise stopped. I re routed the intake for the pump away from the front of the truck and haven't heard the noise since.

I can't locate the water pump on my 2006 trailblazer


I can only assume you are looking for it as you want to replace it. It's on the front of the engine block behind the serpentine belt.
I'm referring you to another Fixya answer so you can see what is involved in replacing the water pump. It is not for the faint of heart... it can be hard work and tricky, especially for a novice.

Need to replace the water pump.....people tell us that we have to have a special tool to do this. What is involved in doing this ourselves?


If it's really passat than you do not need anything special. Nothing special is involved in that process.
