SOURCE: Changing a water pump on a 2005 GMC Pick-up

Open the hood of your truck. Look inside the engine bay. See the fan assembly and the pulley that the belt rides on. The water pump is behind the pulley. Changing water pumps can be somewhat of a task. Professional help will be needed for someone that can't find the waterpump. 

 The water pump is on the passenger side front of the engine; I had to drain the coolant, I kept the belt in place, then I removed the 3 bolts from the pulley to give me access to the bolts on the top (it will require a set of metric tools for it). Then I removed the passenger side front tire and the splash cover from under the car just above the tire, removed all bolts that holds the pump on the lower part of it, then removed the belt, scraped and clean very well the old gasket. The new water pump came with a new gasket, so I just got a gasket maker and applied to the gasket, so I did not have to do it again. Work backwords to reinstall everything, good time to replace the coolant and if you have not done yet, replace the thermostat valve along with any hose that may be cracked, rigid or enlarged (check the hoses to the heater core also). Please check your belts and hoses so you will not have to redo the process again.

SOURCE: How to remove a 2003 GMC Sierra water pump

I personaly dont see many water pump gaskets leak, but instead there is a weep hole that they leak from when they wear out. they are designed this way. which is common. reason it may leak with ignition off is now the pressure builds up verses being cycled through the engine and doesnt reall have time to squirt out.and it just finds a way out with engine off which would be your weep hole most likely.

Its not hard to fix or replace water pumps on the gas engines. there should be the large A/C and powersteering bracket that can be removed and sometimes if you dont have clearence the alternater bracket. its not very hard. basic tools work just fine. the only thing that may be alittle hard is the fan nut. you will need a large wrench and something to stop the pully from spining while loosening and tightening that nut. should take about 2 hours or so. IIRC13mmm, 15mm bolts, 9/16 bolts and 10mm and 8mm bolts. that all you need.other than the large wrench. pipe wrench will work but you need something to prevent the pulley from movning. thats very important.

Good luck. I hope i answered your question.

The water pumps tend to slowly leak on these, it may be leaking slowly, usually it leaves a coolant residue on the front of the engine and near the front of the oil pan. It is temp sensitive, usually leaks cold and stops leaking when warm

How to change the water pump on 98 GMC Sierra

Michael is correct on replacing water pump but if you are mech. inclined it can be done by removing upper fan shroud and serp. belt only. leave fan on pump until removed. remove 4 15mill bolts and the whole assembly. apply gasket sealer to both sides of gasket and insert 2 upper bolts to keep gasket in place when reinstalling.I have a 1998 gmc and did this a couple days ago while installing injection spider.

Gas gauge reads empty and low fuel with 10 to 20 gallons of fuel inside the fuel tank of my 2006 gmc 1500 pickup.

Other than replacing the sensor which is part of the fuel pump assembly inside the tank, you may have loose or corroded connections in the wiring just outside of the fuel pump/sensor position on the tank. These connections are exposed to water/salt conditions from road spray. May the force be with you!
