Good Evening, there is a yes and a no to your question. If you have the v6 it is a very simple procedure. If you have a 2.4l 4cylinder it is a lot more difficult resulting in timing chain removal and motor mount removal and such. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

Water pump vauxhall vectra


defo sound like the pump has gone. is best to do the time belt at the same time save you doing it later. as when you do timing belt you need to change the water pump at the same time. if ecotec engine it is hard to get to the pump you need to unbolt the engine mounts and on a jack lift the engine up to get a bit more space to remove the pump. change the pump then put back in place and do the timing belt.

I have a 1998 volkwagon beetle 2.0 that needs a water pump so i buy the water pump install it put everything back together and put water inside then it just spilled out. tried to start it and now the


you should did your home work before removed old water pump most vw engines water pump is part of the timing belt assembly so when time to replace around 80k miles you should order complete timing belt kit which includes water pump with it.
so after you finish up if you didnt try to hard to run engine you may or may not damage any piece from your valve train!!even with all proper parts you have on your hand you still need high cost speciality tools to complete timing belt replacement on that engine recommendetion is tow your vehicle to mechanic shop and let them do it for you it will save you time and money!
good luck!

Engine hard start sometimes spcially after long travil


probably not that. it is more than likely the cold water temp sensor. this puts more fuel to the engine when cold and acts like a choke.

Water leaks after putting on new water pump


Check the hose. It could be that it has been clamped to hard. They are very easy to replace. Also make sure that you put enough gasket sealant on there

3.1L Water Pump


I have done this myself.

If you have worked on other things on your rodeo....

I would put the water pump as harder than putting in a new radiator, but easier than putting in a new alternator.

If you've done anything like a radiator/alternator before, have the right tools, and the Haynes book for the 1992 rodeo, I'd say it would not be too hard. An afternoon of work.

You might want to have a bottle or two of "break free" to get some of those bolts.

Remove and replace waterpump 1995 3.1 V6


3.1 V6's are not hard to do. If you stand infront of the car on the passanger side follow bottom radiator hose that is the water pump. There are 4 or 5 bolts holding the pully on do not take belt off yet. Break looses the bolt's first. Pull the pully off there will be at least 4 bolts holding the housing on remove them you will loose about a glass of water. Pull the old water pump out and put new one in make sure you use blue silicone or something similar for water put silicone on water pump make sure holes line up on the gasket when you put it on the pump let sit for 5 min. put silicone on other side of gasket put it right one don't let site reassemble everything and your good to go.
