If you are sure they are all out, it may still be hard to get off because over time the gaskets become hard and can hold the pump on pretty good. I had to break mine loose with a large flathead. Make sure you do not put pressure on the hose connections. Try tapping it with a rubber mallet or a block of wood and a hammer.

Water pump is out. How do I get id out to replace


is it a 4 or a 6 cylinder engine, well you need to take off the fan clutch if it has one if not skip the step; its just 4 screws, then take off the acc belt, then take off the hose that goes from the radiator to the water pump; at the water pump, then remove the screws holding the water pump; make note what screw goes where some screws may be different sizes; in some 4 cyl 2.3L engines the timing belt cover has to be removed to remove the water pump, then remove the water pump, scrap off all gasket residue from the surface of the engine, take automotive silicone gasket maker and apply a small amount to the new water pump and level it out then put the included gasket over the silicone, then let it set for a couple of minutes, apply a bit more of silicone over the gasket and again let it set then replace the water pump, replace the screws and tighten all of them snug then go back and torque them between 20 and 25ft lb, replace the water hose, replace timming belt cover if removed, replace acc belt, and finally replace the fan clutch and your all set i hope you can get the job done

Water pump housing


Hi, this water pump is a stand alone unit that is connected to the block by screws. it is not part of the block.

It has a few screws and you will have to remove the drive belt as well. Once you have removed the belt and the screws, it will slide of the bolts.

Please rate and god bless:)
