The water pump is located behind the timing belt cover, which is the plastic shield you mentioned. Replacement of the waterpump involves removing the timing belt, which is an advanced repair. If you are not experienced with timing belts, this may be a job for an experienced technician

How to change a water pump on a 2003 ford windstar

the water pump is run by the serpentine belt. i know on some 3.0s they had the water pump run by a secondary belt that runs the fron cam. which ever it is, remove the belt by the tensioner pulley and remove the water pump pulley. unbolt the water pump and slide it out. may require removing the upper intake. if the water pump is hard to reach from the top, try removing the plastic fender wells and getting to it from behind the tire.

the crankshaft sensor is located right behind the harmonic balancer mounted on the timing cover-.on the 3.8 , The camshaft position sensor is located behind the water pump pulley on the left side of the engine block. it has a 3 wire connector. you have to remove serpintine belt and water pump pulley to access it.I believe there is ( 4-8mm bolts) to remove. ON THE 3.1 IT IS UNDER POWER STEERING PUMP ON BELT SIDE. REMOVE THE BELT THEN REMOVE AND SET STEERING PUMP TO THE SIDE, BUT DO NOT REMOVE ANY POWER STEERING HOSES FROM IT. have a good day ! if its a differant engine, just repost.

Hello, I would like to know the gap for the spark plugs for a 2006 dodge stratus xst, 2.4 litre engine, 4 cyl. Also, where is the timing belt located, is the water pump behind it and should be pulled...

Plug gap = 1.1 mm (0.043")
Timing belts should be replaced at about 50000 to 60000 miles (80000 to 100000 Km.)
The belt is under the plastic covers at the front of the motor behind all the other belts etc. Only change the water pump if it leaks. The PCV valve should not have any effect on the vacuum, it is for ventilating the crankcase, I hope this is the location for yours, the description was not very clear.

I had a water pump and timing belts changed on a 2002 accord. can i see what was changed with everything assembled?

most likely the pump is behind the timing belt which is under a protective metal or plastic casing, so no you should not be able to see them. if you had any other belts changed, you can see them.

Where is the water pump

If you have the 5sfe 2.2 L engine, the water pump is in-line with the camshaft timing belt and is under a two piece plastic cover behind your alternator/powersteering/crankshaft pulley belts. Rule of thumb is to always change timing belt with the water pump. It's so much work to get to it, you might as well do both at the same time. You'll avoid having to go through all that twice if the belt slips or breaks later. Need advice on what to do exactly step by step? ask me directly. I'll tell you if I know.

What steps do I take to change the water pump on a 2200 engine. and where is it located?

The water pump on the 5sfe 2.2L engine is in-line with the timing belt. Facing the car from the front, this is located on the right hand side under a two-piece plastic cover. You will be removing the engine support to access the water pump, so be sure to support the engine. Also replace your timing belt along with your water pump. If you need step-by-step, let me know. I will tell you how.
