Take off water pump and replace on 89firebird 2.8 v6

As water pumps go, this is a relatively easy one to replace...It is located n the front of the motor...behind a pulley on the serpentine belt set-up...after releasing the belt tension, you can remove pulley, the water pump is behind this pulley, the 5 bolts that mount it are usually 8mm bolt heads...this water pump is usually about $35. and available at most parts stores...Imperative that you line up the gasket before applying any sure it is turned correctly so that ALL holes line up perfectly...some newer gaskets have added an UP arrow...Hope this helps...You may find a video on-line. (Change thermostat and flush system with this change)

Were changing the water pump on a 1993 buick lesabre but have run into a problem. Can't get the motor mount out so we can get to the water pump. Have removed 2 bolts and a nut on the engine and all the...

When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old. 1987-95 Vehicles EXCEPT 1995 VIN 1 ENGINE
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain cooling system into a suitable container.
  3. Remove the serpentine drive belt, as outlined in Section 1 of this manual. NOTE: On some engines, removing the alternator provides better clearance for removing the water pump. For alternator removal and installation procedures, please refer to Section 2 of this manual. Fig. 1: After removing the alternator, remove the brace 89633p01.jpg

  4. Unfasten the water pump pulley bolts, (long bolt removed through access hole provided in the body side rail), then remove the pulley. Fig. 2: Pull the water pump pulley from the pump 89633p03.jpg

  5. Disconnect the radiator and heater hoses from water pump. Fig. 3: Use a screwdriver to loosen the hose clamp screws, then disconnect the hoses from the water pump 89633p02.jpg

  6. For 1992-95 vehicles, remove the torque axis mount, as follows:
    1. Use a suitable engine support fixture and lifting bracket to raise the engine slightly to take the weight off of the engine mounts.
    2. Remove the through-bolt from the torque axis (front) engine mount.
    3. Lift the engine with the support fixture until the power steering reservoir touches the strut tower cross brace.
    4. Loosen the bottom two bolts on the torque axis (front) engine mount.
    5. Remove the A/C line clip and top two bolts on the torque axis engine mount, then remove the mount.
    6. Remove the 2 bolts and nut attaching the engine torque axis mount bracket assembly to the front of the engine. NOTE: On some engines, when you remove the 13mm bolts, coolant will flow from the bolt holes, so make sure to position a drain pan under the pump before unfastening the bolts.
  7. Remove the water pump attaching bolts, then remove the water pump from the vehicle. Remove and discard the gasket. Thoroughly clean the gasket mating surfaces. Fig. 4: Unfasten the water pump mounting bolts (see arrows for locations of top bolts) . . . 89633p04.jpg
    Fig. 5: . . . then remove the water pump from the engine 89633p05.jpg
    Fig. 6: Use a gasket scraper to carefully clean the water pump's mating surface 89633p06.jpg
    Fig. 7: You can also use Scotchbrite® or equivalent non-abrasive scouring pad to clean the water pump gasket mating surface 89633p07.jpg
    Fig. 8: When using a scraper to clean the gasket mating surfaces, be careful not to gouge the engine and cause leaks 89633p10.jpg
    Fig. 9: Exploded view of the water pump mounting - 1994 vehicle shown, others similar 89633g37.gif
    To install:
  8. Apply a suitable sealant to the bolt threads. Fig. 10: Coat the bolt threads with a suitable sealing compound 89633p09.jpg

  9. Position a new gasket, then install the water pump to the engine and tighten the retaining bolts, as follows: Fig. 11: Place a new gasket on the water pump mounting surface 89633p08.jpg
    1. For 1987-94 vehicles, tighten the long bolts to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm) and the short bolts to 97 inch lbs. (11 Nm).
    2. For 1995 vehicles, tighten the water pump-to-block bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm) and the water pump-to-front cover bolts to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm), plus an additional 80°rotation.
  10. For 1992-95 vehicles, install the torque axis mount, as follows:
    1. Attach the torque axis engine mount bracket assembly to the front of the engine using the 2 bolts and nut. Fig. 12: Install the torque axis engine mount bracket and secure with the 2 bolts and nut 89633g34.gif

    2. Replace the 2 upper bolts previously removed from the torque axis engine mount, and attach the mount and plastic clip for the A/C lines.
    3. Tighten the 2 lower bolts that were previously loosened on the torque axis engine mount. Fig. 13: Exploded view of the torque axis engine mount and tightening specifications 89633g35.gif

    4. Adjust the engine height to align the torque mount with the torque axis mount bracket.
    5. Insert the through-bolt, attach the retaining nut and tighten to the specifications shown in the accompanying figure. Remove the engine support and lifting fixture. Fig. 14: Insert the torque axis mount bracket through-bolt 89633g36.gif

  11. Install the water pump pulley and secure with the retaining bolts.
  12. Connect the radiator and heater hoses to the water pump.
  13. Install the serpentine drive belt.
  14. Connect the negative battery cable.
  15. Fill cooling system and check for leaks. Start the engine and allow to come to normal operating temperature. Check for leaks and top-off the coolant.

How do I replace water pump[ on my 1993 buick park avenue.

Most often you do not need to totally remove the right motor mount. GM unfortunately made one bolt on the water pump that you can't get to w/o messin with the motor mount. There are actually two bolts that have access holes in the motor mount but in many cases you can get at and remove the one bolt with some clever maneuvering and the right tool. Yet that leaves the other ****** bolt. Now this is the PO factor....just one bolt you know some idiot designer left to make every bodies life difficult. So here is how you do it step by step. Loosen the bolts on the water pump flywheel then remove the belt. Take a oil-pan length 2x4 and use it in between jack and oil pan and jack up engine almost so that steering pump fluid cover on top side almost hits cross bar. Remove the center bolt of the motor mount holding the two halves of the mount together. Remove two bolts and one nut on the engine side mount. Remove 4 bolts (2 on top and two hidden on side) of the bolts holding the mount to the frame. Now take a big 2x4 and wedge it so as to move the engine to the driver side of the compartment. At the same time rotate and move the mount piece on the engine side--rotating about the stud [that the nut came off of]--so as to partly split apart the two mount halves. You'll see that you can now get at the two hidden bolts. Remove the water pump pulley wheel. There are a bunch of small and little bolts in the water pump...some on bottom side. Remove them and old pump. Scrape off old gasket. Apply new gasket and sealer to new pump and reverse order to install
