Hello: The waterpump is on the passenger side of engine. Either the heater hoses are leaking or the waterpmp shaft seals or the radiator hose that attaches to the waterpump. The waterpump is located about in the center, its pulley does not have groves and the pulley is held on the waterpump with 4 10mm bolts.

Where is the auxiliary water pump located

If you are standing in front of the car, and looking down between the back of the radiator and the front of the engine, the auxiliary water pump will be on the bottom left corner of the back of the radiator.

Passanger floorboard is wet

Is it water or is it radiator fluid. Radiator fluid will have a sweet smell. If it is water it is probably because the windshield isn't sealed properly and is leaking. If it is radiator fluid then you have a cracked heater core. You can see the result of this by turning on the front defrost and instead of clearing the windsheild it will fog it up. Try pulling the carpet back on the passenger side and put a light dusting of flour on the floor. This should help you locate where the leak is coming from.

Need to locate and replace the water pump on 1997 nissan sentra.

The water pump is located on the passanger side of the engine. Look right below the timing chain cover and there is a pully and belt on the water pump. You will have to remove the water pump and thermostate together then seperate them after you get them off the car. I would recommend replacing the thermostate also (cheap fix). You will have to remove the belt and pully before you can remove the water pump. Hope this helps....

My 1996 corvette lt1 will overheat while standing,fan does not come on,i have to put on a/c and both fans come on and car cools down to normal.i checked fusesand replaced,thermostat cooling sensor,temt...

U have an electrical issue. If water pump was failing then how in god's creation could the two fans cool the engine down? Check out the circuitry that controls the normal fan operation and you will take care of the issue. Till you find the problem just hot wire the fan motor with an on/off switch.

I can't find the thermostat on my 1996 jetta gls

On 1996 VW JETTA,The thermostat is located at the engine end of the lower radiator hose (passenger side). If the car has power-steering, then power steering pump and mounting bracket are to be removed to get to the thermostat housing. The thermostat is at the end of the bottom hose, in the water pump housing. Follow the lower radiator hose to the water pump housing. There are three bolts that are very difficult to navigate around. The thermostat is located behind those bolts.

Where is the water pump located on a 2000 Saturn

Standing on the passenger side of the car with the hood open looking down into the engine bay you will see the serpentine belt. If you have air conditioning, look directly below the air compressor pulley, the next one down is the water pump. Another easy way to find it is to find the lower radiator hose (again on the passenger side of the engine) and follow it to the engine block, the pulley where the hose meets the block is the water pump (not the pulley, but what the pulley spins is the pump).

1996 honda accord leaking yellow fluid

Is it greenish yellow? Determine the location of the leak to find your problem. Could be: weep hole on the water pump, hose to and from heater core, radiator, one of two large radiator hoses, faulty radiator cap, cracked reservoir. If it's the water pump it will be near your belt(s) area on the driver's side of the motor.

Remove and replace waterpump 1995 3.1 V6

3.1 V6's are not hard to do. If you stand infront of the car on the passanger side follow bottom radiator hose that is the water pump. There are 4 or 5 bolts holding the pully on do not take belt off yet. Break looses the bolt's first. Pull the pully off there will be at least 4 bolts holding the housing on remove them you will loose about a glass of water. Pull the old water pump out and put new one in make sure you use blue silicone or something similar for water put silicone on water pump make sure holes line up on the gasket when you put it on the pump let sit for 5 min. put silicone on other side of gasket put it right one don't let site reassemble everything and your good to go.
