It is under the timing chain cover. If the chain has never been replaced, this is the time to do both. You can get a kit with all the parts on ebay for about a hundred bucks. The oil pump is also then accessible, maybe want to do that as well. This is much more involved than replacing the spark plugs, the timing of the cam and crank shafts must be kept right.

I think my water pump is out. How would I know


could be the water pump but I would be looking for a larger leak, like a radiator hose, radiator tank split
most water pumps leak a slow dribble and then mostly when running

Always replace the thermostat when changing water pump. The age of the vehicle warrants replacing upper and lower radiator hoses too.

My 1995 Chevy Monte Carlo is sometimes running hot. My overflow tank remains full. But the radiator is losing water somewhere but I see no water on the ground or anywhere else. When I take the radiator...


indicates an air lock in the cooling system
could be from a failing head gasket ( do a compression test)
have a coolant pressure test done to find the leak
possible a water pump seal leaking when running
check sump oil for greying color ( failure of the housing behind the pump impeller

Car is running hot I think it's my water pump .


The most likely causes of a hot running engine are the following:

1. low antifreeze level in the radiator and cooling system.
2. fan not turning on at operating temperature.
3. restrictions in the cooling system such as sediment build up.

Water pumps usually leak when they are bad, and can cause an overheat because of low coolant level.
Check whether the water pump is leaking after topping off the coolant level and running at operating temperature, and then shutting off the car's engine.

How do I replace the Water Pump on a 1986 Honda Civic? I'm thinking of buying one from a private owner but it wont hold water. I'm told that it's the water pump but I would like to check it and see if it...


fill the radiator with water,then start it up and run it till its hot if its the water pump water will **** out of the seal.if its the head then the oil level will rise.......DO NOT BUY IT UNTIL YOU DO THIS.(unless its real cheap).

Heater quit working runing hot no water in


Fill it up, run until it's hot and see if you see anything coming out of the water pump. I don't think the heater has anything to do with the running hot problem. The heater valve may need replaced or freed up. Good luck!

What could it be


Hi, I think you have an airlock in the pump,You need to drain the water totaly when stone cold.Drain radiator and disconect hoses from waterpump and top hose from themostat. Reconect pump hose and add water slowly into radiator through top hose untill rad is full then squeeze bottom hose vigourously,You ll feel the water tension in the hose, Connect all hoses and top up water level. This must be done cold as hot and cold water will cause an airlock. Hope this helps you out.All the best.Phil
