Where is the watter pump located on a 94 mercury sable? How do i take it off to replace it?


this is for a 3.8 v6. first Disconnect the battery. then take off the Radiator cap and set it aside. on driver side at the bottom of the Radiator. there a twist valve. this is the coolant drain. put a large container under drain then open the valve. once it stops. on the passenger side towards the back in front of the belt tensioner but under the altenator is the water pump. but to get to it you have to take off the mounting bolts for the altenator (LEAVE ALL WIRES CONNECTED this will save time) now set it aside. now loosen the 4 bolts on the water pump pully. now take the drive belt off. take a pully puller and take the pully off the power steering. there should be a metal support going from the back of the a/c compresser to the water pump. undo the 2 bolts hold the bracket on the a/c compressor.(on a side note do not loose any of the bolts cause ford dont carry them anymore and hardware stores dont have them. only place i found is a junkyard) detach the hoses on the water pump. (Caution there will be some coolant left have container ready)l
now loosen the bolts on water pump. now under the car near the front right there are to engine mounts LOOSEN THEM ONLY ENOUGH TO RAISE THE ENGINE ENOUGH TO CLEAR. using a jack. raise only the passenger side of the engine enough for the water pump to clear the wheel well. once that is done undo the bolts on the water pump pully and take off and pull off the water pump and take off the support bracket and pull off the water pump. clean off leftover residue on the engine black. now put the silicon gel/paste on both sides of the new gasket. use a decent amount but not too much. then wipe off edges. and put the water pump back as shown below.

attach the hoses. now put the support bracket back on then tighten the bolts down only a little and let the silicon set overnight for best leak protection. (by doing this. it allows the sillicon to create a good strong seal) after it set overnight tighten down the bolts. put the water pump pully back on put on the bolts hand tight . lower the jack SLOWLY! now retorque the enigine mounts to 70lbs i believe. put the 2 bolts for the a/c compressor back in. put the power steering pully back on. (MAKE sure you aline the pully up with the others or it will throw the belt) rebolt on the altenator. put the belt back on and refil the cooling system with coolant. reconnect the battery. start the engine for 30 sec then turn off check for leaks and top off coolant then then fill the rezivor to proper level. restart engine and run till operating temp then check for leaks
