2003 dodge intrepid sxt 3.5 over heated replaced the thermostat and still over heats might be water pump where is it located and what is in volved in fixing this

The water pump is located in the front of the engine & is driven by the timing belt. So if you go in there you might as well replace the belt and tensioners if needed.
Drain the cooling system (turn the radiator drain 1 full turn only)
  1. Remove the upper radiator hose
  2. Remove the top radiator support
  3. Remove the two 10mm head bolts from either side of the radiator and gently pull the top of the radiator forward to gain a little more room
  4. Remove the four 10mm head bolts holding the cooling fan module to the radiator . Remove the four clip nuts and the cooling fan electrical connector and lift the fan module out of the vehicle
  5. Loosen and remove the drive belts and remove the three 13mm head bolts holding the alternator belt tensioner pulley to the timing cover
  6. Remove the three piece timing belt cover (the lowest piece can be accessed through the crankshaft pulley by turning the pulley and removing the bolts)
  7. turn the crankshaft pulley and line up the timing marks on top dead center
  8. Remove the timing belt tensioner two 13mm bolts and remove the tensioner (If the tensioner pulley wheel is made of plastic you will want to purchase a revised steel tensioner pulley) . Put the tensioner in a suitable vise to compress it and install a small allen wrench from the front to hold it in place (close the vise slowly to compress the tensioner)
  9. (If need be) Remove the plastic tensioner pulley (the 15mm head attaching bolt can be removed without removing the crankshaft pulley)
  10. The timing belt can easily be slipped under/around the crankshaft pulley by slightly bending it to the outside of the timing belt housing on the drivers side and working it with your hand through the crankshaft pulley . No excessive force is needed to do this and be sure to clean the area well prior to installing the new belt
  11. With the belt removed , remove and replace the water pump . Coat the gasket with a little RTV silicone and clean the gasket mating surface well
  12. Install the timing belt in the opposite direction as removed . Make sure that all the timing marks are lined up .
  13. Reinstall the timing belt tensioner

    Note: There are several different length bolts used, so pay attention to where they are removed from, they must be installed in the same placement.

    I hope this information was helpful.

Where is the cam shaft sensor located on a 8.1 chevy suburban 2002

On the drivers side, behind the cylinder head. It will be rough to get to from the top, I've never tried it like that, but have seen some guys do it.
If you reach back there way down to where the head bolts to the block you will feel it. It is held in by a 10mm headed bolt that is bolted to the back of the cylinder head. The fuel lines are going to be in your way, you are going to have to work around them.

1992 Toyota Previa van,Oil dripping onto exhaust manifold, replace head gasket? need a free manual!

The toyota previa uses a formed silicone gasket for the valve cover and the cover is held in place by metric shoulder bolts ( 10mm). The valve gasket leaks because you can't get enough preload on the bolts to re-seat the old gasket when it gets old and shrinks. The shoulder bolts only allow you to tighten the gasket enough to seat the shoulder on the bolt. If you continue to torque down the suspected bolts, you will snap the bolt off ( don't ask me how I know this ). You can either 1.)replace the old gasket with a new one or 2.) remove the existing bolts around the leak area and put in new metric bolts that do not have a shoulder. You may want to put in a small sleeve into the existing bolt hole but shorter than the thickness of the valve cover to account for the smaller diameter bolt. You can now torque down the bolt and get enough preload to seal the valve cover without removing the old gasket. Make sure you use a torque wrench ( in-lbs) or be very careful not to snap these small valve cover bolts.
