Follow your fan belt - it goes around the water pump pulley. Can be done at home with a little mechanical abilty and tools - not real fun - some of the bolts are a little hard to get to

It will need to be replaced, or if it is a gasket, just replace the gasket.

Need to replace water pump on nissan 1997 quest


Not sure why all other parts removed? Locate the water pump by following the lower radiator hose to the motor...the connection is part of the water pump housing...Also look at the replacement water pump to see what few bolts need to be removed to switch the pump. Be sure to use a water pump gasket sealer when applying the new water pump gasket...coat both sides as this also helps to hold in place while re-assembling. Reconnect all hoses and clamps...install the belt before testing...Talk with your local parts store also...the water pump usually comes with a replacement diagrahm too. Hope this helps.

96 Sunfire GT leaking from seems like ever where


tinaray: I hate to be the one to tell you where the water pump is on this engine. Unfortunately they couldn't have thought of a worst design. It is located near the bottom of the motor on the exhaust side. It is driven by the timing chain and there is a fair amount of work involved in replacing it. Based on ALLDATA, the flat rate GM has supplied for this job is 7.5 hours on a car like yours with A/C.
Few cars come without A/C. It is figured as a skill level "B" job.
If you do not do this for a living, it may be best left for a professional to deal with.

Water pump needs replacement


Depends on which engine if it's the 2,2 engine fairly easy but the 2.4 is a big job Timing Cover & Exhaust Manifold Removal Required. With the 2.2 locate water pump loosen the bolts on the pulley then remove the serpentine belt. Finish removing the pulley bolts now you can get at the water pump bolts. Use a container under the car to catch the antifreeze. Remove the water pump from the engine, installing new pump in reverse order to removal.
