First drain radiator, then remove belts and anything else that would be in your way. Alternator , hoses,ect.... Once you have removed the old water pump make sure you scrape all the old seal from the engine block or the new pump will leak. once all the old gasket is scraped, ready the new pump by putting blue silicone (permatex) on the new gasket, both sides then put it back together. Good luck

Need to replace waterpump


Your Malibu is equipped with probably the EASIEST water pump in the word to change.

Drain the cooling system.
Loosen the water pump pulley bolts.
Remove the drive belt.
Remove the water pump pulley bolts and pulley.
Remove the water pump bolts, pump and gasket.
Clean the water pump mating surfaces.
Install the water pump and reassemble in reverse order

Hint: The O-ring that seals the water pump is much easier to install if you use a little dielectric grease to "stick" it to the water pump before installing. This O-ring needs to expand and contract and move freely in the water pump groove due to extreme changes in engine temperature. The dielectric grease will actually help accomplish this. DO NOT use RTV silicone to "glue" the O-ring.

    2. Scraper
    3. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
    4. Cooling System Pressure Tester
    5. Needle Nose Pliers
    6. Socket Set
    7. Radiator Hook Tool

    Supplies:
    1. Coolant
    2. Silicone Sealant

    Steps:
    Step 1 With the engine off and cold, open the hood and locate the vehicle’s water pump.
    o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
    o Tip: Before removing the radiator cap, squeeze the upper radiator hose to verify that the cooling system is not pressurized.

    Step 2 Remove the radiator cap.

    Step 3 Install cooling system pressure tester. Apply the pressure indicated on the radiator cap or in the owner’s manual.

    Step 4 Inspect cooling system components for leaks.

    Step 5 Place a drain pan under the radiator. Open drain valve or remove the lower radiator hose to drain cooling system.

    Replacement of water pump on 2004 gmc sierra 2500hd 6.0l. any tips on removal and installation


    Remove or disconnect the following:

    Air outlet duct Coolant Inlet radiator hose from the water pump Upper fan shroud Cooling fan and clutch assembly Drive belt Radiator outlet hose from the coolant pump Surge tank hose Heater hose Water pump

    0996b43f802030d1.jpg

    DO NOT use cooling system seal tabs (or similar compounds) unless otherwise instructed. The use of cooling system seal tabs (or similar compounds) may restrict coolant flow through the passages of the cooling system or the engine components. Restricted coolant flow may cause engine overheating and/or damage to the cooling system or the engine components/assembly.

    Install or connect the following:

    Water pump. Install the water pump bolts. Tighten the water pump bolts first pass to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm); tighten the bolts final pass to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). Water pump drive belt pulley and bolts (if applicable). Tighten the pulley bolts first pass to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm); tighten the bolts final pass to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm). Surge tank hose Heater hose Outlet radiator hose to the coolant pump Drive belt Cooling fan and clutch assembly Upper fan shroud Inlet radiator hose to the water pump Air inlet duct Coolant

    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION


    CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or inPuddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
    2.2L Engine

    2. Properly drain the engine coolant into a suitable container.
    3. Remove the serpentine drive belt, as outlined in of this repair guide.
    4. Unfasten the water pump pulley bolts, then remove the pulley.
    5. Remove the alternator and side bracket.
    6. Disconnect the water pump hoses.
    7. Unfasten the water pump retaining bolts, then remove the water pump from the vehicle. Remove and discard the gasket. Thoroughly clean all gasket mating surfaces.

    To install:
    1. Position a new water pump gasket, then install the water pump. Tighten the attaching bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
    2. Install the water pump pulley and secure with the retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).
    3. Attach the water pump hoses.
    4. Install the alternator bracket and the alternator.
