As your standing in front of the car looking at the engine the serpentine belt tensioner is furthest to the left and in between the crank pulley and the alternator. You can use a 15mm wrench on the bolt head in the center of the tensioner pulley to rotate the tensioner counter clockwise.

I usually just use my left hand to push the tensioner in and remove/install the belt with my right hand.

Hi. Here's the proceudere on how to replace the water pump of your 97 Chevy Cavalier.


•1
Drain the cooling system. Place a large oil drain container under the drain fitting located on the bottom of the radiator. Turn the drain fitting counterclockwise until fluid is draining from the radiator. Use a pair of pliers to turn the drain fitting if you cannot turn it by hand. Turn the fitting clockwise to tighten it after all of the fluid has drained from the radiator.
•2
Remove the cooling fan. Disconnect the electrical connection from the fan motor. Remove the bolts holding the fan assembly to the radiator support with a ratchet wrench. Pull the fan assembly up from the engine compartment and remove it.
•3
Remove the serpentine belt. Place a wrench over the belt tensioner and rotate the tensioner to release the tension on the belt. Pull the belt off the pulleys and remove it from the vehicle.
•4
Remove the water pump pulley. Place a screwdriver behind the pulley to lock it in place while removing the pulley mounting bolts with a ratchet wrench.
•5
Disconnect the coolant hoses running to the water pump.
•6
Remove the water pump mounting bolts with a ratchet wrench or wrench and remove the water pump from the vehicle.
•7
Clean the mating surfaces of the engine block and new water pump with a towel saturated with lacquer thinner.
•8
Apply a thin layer of RTV sealer to both sides of the new water pump gasket and place the gasket on the new water pump.
•9
Place the water pump against the engine block and finger tighten the water pump mounting bolts to hold the pump in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 foot-pounds.
•10
Place the pulley on the water pump and install the water pump pulley mounting bolts with a ratchet wrench.
•11
Attach any hoses previously disconnected from the water pump.
•12
Install the serpentine belt. Route the belt over the pulleys according to the routing diagram in the engine compartment. Place a wrench over the belt tensioner and rotate the tensioner to tighten the tension on the belt.
•13
Install the cooling fan. Gently lower the cooling fan in position and install the mounting bolts attaching the fan assembly to the radiator support with a ratchet wrench. Attach the electrical connection to the fan motor.

Refill the cooling system to the appropriate level, start the vehicle and check for leaks around the water pump.

All the best!

I'm looking for torque specs on the water pump bolts to the block for 2000 chevy blazer 4.3 L


Fig. Exploded view of the water pump assembly mounting-4.3L engine

To install:
  1. Clean the gasket mounting surfaces.
    NOTE The water pumps on some of the engines covered may have been installed using sealer only, no gasket, at the factory. If a gasket is supplied with the replacement part, it should be used. Otherwise, a 1 / 8 in. (3mm) bead of RTV sealer should be used around the sealing surface of the pump.
  2. Apply sealant to the water pump retainer threads.
  3. Install or connect the following:

    Water pump using a new gasket. Tighten the water pump retainers to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm) for 4.2L engines, or to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm) for 4.3L engines. For 5.3L engines, tighten the bolts to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm), then to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). Coolant hose(s) Water pump pulley. Tighten the pulley bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm). Fan or fan and clutch assembly Serpentine drive belt (if equipped) by positioning the belt over the pulleys and carefully allow the tensioner back into contact with the belt. V-belts (if equipped) and adjust the tension Upper fan shroud Negative battery cable
  4. Refill the engine cooling system.
  5. Run the engine and check for leaks.

Hope this help to solve it; rebember rated this post. Good luck.

I need to change the water pump and I need to know the proper way to do it for a 1997 Chevy Blazer LS 4.3 litre.


First you need to drain down the coolant, secound take top of fan shrould off 2#10 bolts on each side, third loosen fan bolts, fourth take belt off, fifth take fan off, sixth unbolt anything that is bolted to water pump like power steering pump, maybe ac. pump heater hoses ect. last take 4 bolts out that hold water pump to block 2 on each side and thats it. Clean old gasgets off engine block and bolt on new pump with new gasgets witch will come with new pump. Put back to gether in reverse order.

The water pump is in front of the engine block. If you follow the serpentine belt to the pulley that connects to the radiator fan. That pulley also is the water pump pulley,and you should see a large radiator hose at the bottom,passenger side. There should be a smaller hose from the top. Hope this help, keep me posted. Be glad to help.

Water pump


It should be 2.4 hours @ shop rate plus the water pump dealer cost for the pump is 250.00 I recommend aftermarket part plus 2 gallons of coolant they may assess a diagnostic charge. I would probably bill 3 hours. .4 of an hour is with a/c deduct if no a/c compressor. This is a good time to have serpentine belt replaced as it has to come off to complete service.
