All things you mentioned have nothing to do with the battery light, check the fan belt on the alternator is not loose and check what is the voltage output on the alternator as well if all wires are ok.

Battery light comes on while driving. Immediately after water pump/timing belt replacement. Replaced battery and alternator tests good. Intermittent battery light remains?


It sounds as though the belt may be slipping or is not tight enough?

If it's a toothed belt it won't slip - it may not be tensioned enough where it goes around the alternator pulley. They are adjustable.

A smooth non-toothed belt can slip.

Also, check the tightness of the battery leads where they connect to the battery and to the earth - on the bodywork/engine block

How do i change a waterpump on a 2001Volkswagen cabrio?


Your Cabrio has one of several 2.0L Volkswagen engines - determine your engine type from the
8th digit of your VIN, which will be either an "A", or "C",both are 2.0L engines.

Volkswagen 2.0L engines offered in 2001:
(a) 2.0L (Aba) Engine
(b) 2.0L (Aeg/Avh/Azg/Bdc/Bev/Bgd) Engine
(c) 2.0L (Aeg/Avh/Azg/Bdf) Engine

For completeness, I've included the water pump maintenance manual entries for all (3) 2.0L VW
engines offered in 2001. Note that the instructions below include (3) illustrations, which are
reproduced faithfully from the manual, but the last (2) illustrations are identical, since the last two

I got a 2001 doge stratus and i need to replace the water pump and i never done it before i got the part i jus need a outline of what i got to move to get to the part and how to put it on...


The water pump is driven by the timing belt. You will have to remove the crankshaft pulley and the timing cover. Once the pump is installed you will have to re-install the timing belt. A NEW timing belt is recommended and I always change them. there are "timing" marks on the crankshaft gear and the camshaft gear that need to be aligned and must be "dead on" to prevent serious engine damage. If your not comfortable doing this work I would have a professional do it as you don't want to do it wrong and risk damaging the engine to the point that it needs to be replaced.

How do you replace a water pump in a 2.5L V-6? Step by step.


2.5L Engine

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Place a large drain pan under the radiator drain plug. Drain and properly
    contain the engine coolant.
    NOTE: This procedure requires removing the engine timing belt
    and the auto tensioner. To help assure proper alignment at assembly, it may be
    helpful to set the engine at TDC on No. 1 compression stroke. This should align
    all timing marks on the crankshaft sprocket and both camshaft sprockets.



  3. Remove the accessory drive belts and crankshaft damper.
  4. Remove the right engine mount. This requires safely supporting the engine
    with a floor jack and wood block so the mount can be removed.
  5. Remove the timing belt covers.
  6. Remove the timing belt and tensioner.

    inlet pipe

    damage

    Fig. 7: Always keep the water pump's mounting bolts lined up
    with their correct mounting holes
    90903p58.jpg



  7. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
  8. Separate the water pump from the water inlet pipe and remove the pump.
    To install:

  9. Thoroughly clean all sealing surfaces. Inspect the pump for damage or
    cracks, signs of coolant leakage at the vent, and excessive looseness or rough
    turning bearings. Any problems require a new pump.
  10. Install a new O-ring on the water inlet pipe. Wet the O-ring with water to
    make installation easier. DO NOT use oil or grease on the O-ring.
  11. Install a new gasket on the water pump and fit the pump inlet opening over
    the water pipe. Press the assembly together to force the pipe into the water
    pump.
  12. Install the water pump-to-engine bolts and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  13. Install the timing belt and timing belt tensioner. Set the timing belt
    tension.
  14. Install the timing belt covers. Install the right engine mount. Remove the
    floor jack and engine block from underneath the engine.
  15. Install the crankshaft damper.
  16. Install the accessory drive belts and set to the proper tension.
  17. Connect the negative battery cable.
  18. Fill and bleed the engine cooling system.
  19. Start the engine and verify proper operation, with no leaks.

Sounds likethewater pump pulley makes noise when


It sounds like you have a loose or worn alternator belt
(same belt drives water pump) That would explain the
screeching noise and the battery light on when wet.
Check the belts for tension and wear on the inside of
the belts(cracks or pieces missing) if you're going to
change the belt or belts yourself, thats the best time
to check the pullys and make sure they are tight and
spin true. Hope this helps.

1993 mazda 626 LX 2.0L. Smelled burning smell for about 10 seconds, then overheating began. No heat coming from heater, and Charge light; all happen at same time. Also, rear light came on too. Thought it...


Sounds like you have burned a belt off the pulley for the alternator and water pump. Dont drive the car until you have verified the belt is intact and the water pump is turning. Something had to have caused it if it did, I would suspect water pump, alternator, or air conditioning compressor has siezed if your car is equipped with it.

Changing water pump 2000 ford focus


Changing a water pump is pretty basic. Since the coolant system is a closed system you only need to be concerned with that system. For instance you since you have to mess around with it anyway you might as well change the thermostat and flush the coolant system. Make sure your radiator hoses are in good shape and that's about it.
If you have basic mechanical skills and tools you will have no problem replacing a water pump.


As far as information with the actual replacement there are a number of experts here including myself that could explain how to do it.
However no matter how good our explanations are it just can't compare to a good repair manual.
A repair manual for your car at Auto Zone would likely cost between $12 and $15. It is a great investment if you are going to keep your car for any length of time. When you sell, it shows the buyer you took the time to maintain and repair it right.
I personally like Haynes Manuals.
I hope this helps.
