How to replace water pump on 1991 pontiac quad 4


2.3L Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable
  2. Detach the oxygen sensor connector.
  3. Properly drain the engine coolant into a suitable container. Remove the heater hose from the thermostat housing for more complete coolant drain.
  4. Remove upper and lower exhaust manifold heat shields.
  5. Remove the bolt that attaches the exhaust manifold brace to the manifold.
  6. Break loose the manifold to exhaust pipe spring loaded bolts using a 13mm box wrench.
  7. Raise and safely support the vehicle. NOTE: It is necessary to relieve the spring pressure from 1 bolt prior to removing the second bolt. If the spring pressure is not relieved, it will cause the exhaust pipe to twist and bind up the bolt as it is removed.
  8. Remove the manifold to exhaust pipe bolts from the exhaust pipe flange as follows:
    1. Unscrew either bolt clockwise 4 turns.
    2. Remove the other bolt.
    3. Remove the first bolt.
  9. Pull down and back on the exhaust pipe to disengage it from the exhaust manifold bolts.
  10. Remove the radiator outlet pipe from the oil pan and transaxle. If equipped with a manual transaxle, remove the exhaust manifold brace. Leave the lower radiator hose attached and pull down on the outlet pipe to remove it from the water pump.
  11. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  12. Remove the exhaust manifold, seals and gaskets.
  13. Loosen and reposition the rear engine mount and bracket for clearance, as required.
  14. Remove the water pump mounting bolts and nuts. Remove the water pump and cover assembly, then separate the two pieces.

It is hard to turn on both sides how do i change my steering pump


Have you checked the fluid level and belt tightness?
It is easy to change the pump.
There is the small high pressure hose and the larger return hose, a pivot bolt, and the adjustable hold down bolt.

How do you change the plugs in a 2005 impala


The hard part is getting to a couple of the plugs back near the firewall.
Trust me, take the time to remove the upper motor mounts.

Put a jack under the engine (with a piece of wood to protect the pan).
Remove one of the bolts from each of the upper engine mounts. The mounts are shaped like a Y and are attached to the radiator support.
Jack the engine up a little, and it should "roll" forward and give you room to get the back spark plugs. Make sure you brace the engine, in case the jack fails.
I highly recommend that you change the plug wires at the same time.

  2. Raise and support the front of the vehicle, then remove the passenger side tire and wheel assembly for access to the rear of the alternator through the wheel well.
  3. Working through the wheel well, unfasten the alternator brace-to-block bolt, then remove the brace-to-intake nut and the brace-to-engine stud nut.
  4. Unplug the alternator wiring connector, then remove the battery terminal nut and wire.
  5. Carefully release the serpentine belt tension and remove the belt from the alternator pulley. Do not allow the tensioner to snap back into position once the belt is off the pulley.
  6. Loosen the alternator retaining bolts, then support the alternator and remove the fasteners. Remove the alternator from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Position the alternator in the vehicle and loosely install the retaining bolts.
  2. On 1994-98 models, tighten the top alternator bolt to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm) and the bottom bolt to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  3. On 1999-99 models, tighten the rear bolt to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm) and the front bolt to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  4. On 1994-98 models, install the alternator brace, then tighten the retaining nut(s) and bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).
  5. On 1999-99 models, install the alternator brace, tighten the brace-to-alternator and brace-to-intake retainers to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm). Tighten the brace-to-engine stud nut to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm).
  6. Install the battery terminal wire and tighten the retaining nut, then engage the alternator wiring connector.
  7. Hold the serpentine drive belt tensioner, back off the belt while slipping the belt over the alternator pulley. Gradually lower the tensioner into contact with the belt, then check for proper alignment and tension.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.
