Normaly the radiator the belt and the fan any hoses ...then the water pump. Sometimes you dont have to remove the radiator. But if you need to get a pully puller in there you might not have enough room.

I have no clue on how to replace water pump on a 1995 chrysler cirrus 2.5L. I have to do this myself I dont have the money for a garage.


This is found on the autozone.com website.

2.5L Engine
See Figures 3 through 7
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Place a large drain pan under the radiator drain plug. Drain and properly contain the engine coolant.

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

  1. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
  2. Separate the water pump from the water inlet pipe and remove the pump.

To install:
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Install the water pump-to-engine bolts and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  5. Install the timing belt and timing belt tensioner. Set the timing belt tension.
  6. Install the timing belt covers. Install the right engine mount. Remove the floor jack and engine block from underneath the engine.
  7. Install the crankshaft damper.
  8. Install the accessory drive belts and set to the proper tension.
  9. Connect the negative battery cable.
  10. Fill and bleed the engine cooling system.
  11. Start the engine and verify proper operation, with no leaks

This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

Hello,

Removal:
Drain cooling system, remove the timing belt if necessary. Remove water pump mounting bolts. Separate water pump from water inlet pipe and remove.

Replace water pump if it has damage or cracks to pump body. Check the shaft seal for any leaks as evidence by traces of coolant from vent hole. Check for any impeller rubbing inside pump, and for loose or rough bearings.

Installation:
Clean all gasket and "O" ring surfaces. Install NEW "O" ring on water pipe (wet "O" ring with water to aid assembly). DO NOT allow oil or grease to contact "O" ring. Install NEW gasket on water pump, and install pump inlet opening over water pipe. Install pump-to-block bolts and tighten to specification 18 FT. Lbs. (25n.m). To complete installation, reverse removal procedure.
