It's easier to remove the radiator, fan and belt. in order to remove you will need to remove the cover over the radiator. It sounds like a lot but easier to get to and plus this will give you a good opportunity to change the belt and have the radiator flushed out. It can be flushed out by you. Anyways. to remove parts about 45min - 1 hr. to install is the same amount, just be sure the gasket on the pump is ready and dry. You take just the belt and fan off and still take the pump out. It may take a total of 3 hrs to do all if you've never did this.

There are a few bolts that hold the clutch assembly onto the water pump. Unbolt each one and the fan and clutch will come off the pump. You will have to hold the clutch stationary (if you try to hold the fan blades, the clutch will still spin) while cracking the bolts. Brace the other clutch bolts with something while cracking each one. Good luck.

Overheats in town driving or at idle. radiator waterpump thermostadt bigger fan replaced no help. worked fine before emitions recall.

Sounds like it could be timing, cracked head, bad head gasket, or any combo of the above. Easy way to tell is to remove the radiator cap, start it up, and watch and see if there are bubbles present in the coolant. If so, you have a bad head or head gasket.

1996 jeep grand cherokee limited v8

With the water pump removed, you have to heat the body of the water pump. There is a O-Ring that seizes the tube into the water pump. Sometimes you can just loosen the bolt and heat the pump with it still bolted up the engine. Use some pliers to wiggle the tube while pulling the tube. When you put it back together replace the o-ring and add some rtv sealant around the o-ring too. This helps the seizing problem. Hope this helps
