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.

How do I replace the water pump on my 1997 Plymoth Grand Voyager it looks fairly simple


First remove the serp. belt, then drain your engine coolant. now unblot the waterpump, there isn't going to be much clearance between the body and the engine to remove so there are slotted holes that once the pulley is unbolted it will turn and slide closer to the pump. and once the pump is unbolted you will have to try and pry the engine over while sliding the unit out. You are probably going to need assistance. and be careful not to slip when installing the new pump because the blades on the back of the pump are likely to be plastic and will break if the motor swings back towards the body with the pump 1/2 way in.

How do i change a water pump in a 97 grand am with a 2.4 litre engine


2.4L Engine
See Figure 3
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
  3. Disconnect the oxygen sensor wiring.
  4. Remove the upper exhaust manifold heat shield.
  5. Raise and safely support the front end of the vehicle securely on jackstands.
  6. Remove the exhaust manifold brace bolt.
  7. Unbolt and remove the lower exhaust manifold heat shield.
  8. Break loose the manifold-to-exhaust pipe spring loaded nuts.
  9. Unbolt the radiator outlet pipe assembly from the water pump cover.
  10. Disconnect the exhaust pipe from the manifold.
  11. Pull down and back on the exhaust pipe to disengage it from the exhaust manifold bolts.
Do not rotate the flex coupling more than 4°. this could damage the component.
  1. Separate the radiator outlet pipe from the oil pan and transaxle.
    1. On manual transaxle, remove the exhaust manifold brace.

  2. Next, leave the lower radiator hose attached and pull down on the outlet pipe to detach it from the water pump. Allow the outlet pipe to hang.
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Remove the exhaust manifold-to-cylinder head nuts.
  5. Extract the manifold, seals and gaskets.
  6. Remove the timing chain cover. Refer to the procedure later on in this section.
  7. Remove the timing chain tensioner. Refer to Timing Chain removal later in this section.
  8. Unbolt the water pump from the cylinder block.
  9. Extract the pump assembly-to-timing chain housing nuts.
  10. Remove the water pump and cover assembly.
  11. Separate the pump from the cover.
  12. Clean all mating surfaces of gaskets and sealant materials.

To install:
Prior to installing the water pump, read the entire procedure. Pay special attention to the tightening sequence to avoid component damage and ensure a proper seal.
  1. Attach the water pump to the cover and hand-tighten the components.
  2. Lubricate the splines of the water pump drive with chassis grease or equivalent, then install the pump and cover assembly. Hand tighten the cover-to-block bolts.
  3. Install the pump-to-chain housing nuts and hand-tighten.
  4. Lubricate the O-ring on the radiator outlet pipe with an anti-freeze solution and slide the pipe into the water pump cover, install and hand-tighten the bolts.
  5. With the specified gaps, tighten in sequence as follows:
    1. Pump assembly-to-chain housing nuts
    2. Pump cover-to-pump assembly
    3. Cover-to-block, bottom bolt first
    4. Radiator outlet pipe assembly-to-cover

  6. Install the exhaust manifold using new gaskets.
  7. Install the manifold-to-cylinder head nuts, follow the tightening sequence and tighten to specifications.
  8. Raise and support the front of the vehicle.
  9. Index the exhaust manifold-to-exhaust pipe flange bolts.
    1. Turn bolt bolts in evenly to avoid cocking the exhaust pipe and binding the bolts. Turn the bolts in until they are fully seated.

  10. Install and secure the radiator outlet pipe to the transaxle and oil pan.

On manual transaxles, install the exhaust manifold brace.
  1. Install the timing chain tensioner and chain cover.
  2. Attach the lower heat shield.
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Attach the exhaust manifold brace. Tighten the manifold-to-exhaust pipe nuts to specification.
  5. Attach and secure the upper heat shield.
  6. Connect the oxygen sensor wiring.
  7. Fill the radiator with coolant water mixture until it reaches the heater hose coolant outlet, then install the hose and continue to fill. This will assist with the complete cylinder block fill.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.
  9. Start the engine and top off the cooling system and check for leaks.
