You need to drain 1 quart of oil, pour in a bottle of engine cleaner, let car run for 3-5 min and drain oil. Install a new oil filter and re-fill with correct oil and amount. You can get by with just draining the oil and doing an oil change but I suggest running the engine cleaner along with changing the oil.

Need to replace water pump on 1999 pont sunfire 2.4 liter engine are there any special tools required


No, just basic mechanics hand tools. This vehicle is 11 years old. I recommend you perform a complete cooling system service at the same time you replace the water pump. Drain, flush, replace the thermostat, replace the water pump, pour in a 50/50 mix of the correct antifreeze and distilled water. (Do not use tap water). Bleed all air from the system. Also inspect the radiator hoses and heater hoses. Replace as necessary.

Where to refill a flushed radiator on 1996 pontiac sunfire


If there is no radiator cap on the radiator, that would indicate to me that the procedure for flushing and re-filling is done with the motor running, and the heat on high. Filling is done by pouring antifreeze into the coolant reservoir.
