I think its my water pump its boiling in my over flow the belt is gd but making noice its over heating how much would it cost to replace and wat would i have to do to replace it myself wat would i need


Unfortunately, Chrysler put the water pump in the worse place of any other car maker. The flat rate manual has it listed as a 6 hour job. So depending on what your mechanic charges per hour, you are looking at $300+ for labor and another $50+ for the water pump.

NOTE: Since you have to remove everything, it would be a great idea to replace the timing belt at the same time since it isn't more work.

Since we are limited on space on this web site, here is a complete how to with photos on how to do the job. http://www.sebringclub.net/diagrams/96-00-timingbelt-waterpump-replacement.pdf

1999 2.3 supercharged mazda millenia s; need user/repair manual and help fixing/replacing water pump


Hello, Here are the steps for removing and reinstalling your water pump.
Removal
  1. Disconnect the positive battery cable.
  2. Put a drain pan under the radiator and drain the coolant. Drain the coolant out via the drain plug on the radiator.
  3. When drained close the drain plug.
  4. Put another drain pan under the timing belt cover.
  5. Now you need to remove the timing belt cover.
  6. Use a ratchet and remove all the bolts to the time belt cover.
  7. Remove timing belt cover.
  8. When you get the cover off remove the timing belt.
  9. ***NOTE*** due to the time, labor and potential cost of replacing the water pump and the fact that the timing belt is right there it is recommend to put a new timing belt on during the installation process.
  10. Remove the bolts that secure the coolant inlet pipe with a ratchet.
  11. Remove the pipe and gasket.
  12. Remove the belt and idler pulley attached to the water pump. Don't get and coolant or grease on it.
  13. Now you need to remove the mounting bolts from the water pump with a ratchet.
  14. Remove the pump.
  15. Inspect the seating of the gasket real well.
  16. Remove all the crud off it with a lint free rag, I repeat lint free rag.
Now to install the new water pump
  1. Install the new water pump with the new gaskets provided. Never reuse the old gaskets.
  2. Install mounting bolts and torque them at 14-18 foot pounds.
  3. There is a bolt that will connect the alternator bracket to the water pump that needs to be torqued at 23-38 foot-pounds.
  4. Reinstall the idler pulleys and tighten down with your ratchet.
  5. Replace the gasket for the coolant intake pipe with the new gasket.
  6. Now torque the remaining bolts to 14-18 foot pounds.
  7. Slide the [hopefully new] timing belt back.
  8. Reattach the timing covers.
  9. Tighten them bolts with your ratchet.
  10. Use a mix of 50% water and 50% antifreeze and fill up the radiator and overfill.
  11. Squeeze the radiator hoses a few times to get the air out of the hoses.
  12. Hook your battery back up.
  13. Start the car and let it heat up to full running temperature, with the heat on and check for leaks.
  14. Now top off the coolant level again.
  15. Go for a short drive.
  16. Reinspect for leak.
  17. End of job.
Regards, Tony

How do I locate the number one piston and the firing order on the 1999 New Volkswagon Beetle ? I need to take off the timingbelt to get to the water pump. I need to put the number one piston on the TDC.


To put at TDC, on the transmission housing, where it bolts to engine block, will have a rubber plug, remove and align pre diagram, there are for stander or automatic transmission, the one where you can see the flywheel is stander, or you could align the crankshaft pulley, hope this was very helpful.

When i change the timingbelt,How do i Time it?


Set your timing mark on outer cover to the flywheel timing mark on pulley(T mark), then take the covers off and look you will clearly see marks that line up on the cam pulley to block,crank gear to block, and water pump shaft to crank (separate belt replace both, and replace water pump in high mile cars. ) These marks will all line up when you rotate the motor to top dead center on the compression stroke..

Need to change it


Well you have to get the serpentine belt out of the way, then get under the timing cover and get the timing belt off. that being said it is pretty standard practice to do all this at one: serpentine and timing belts, timing idler pulley and tensionor and the water pump. It take 1 1/2 to 2 hours to do. Here's a good tutorial on it: http://volvospeed.com/Repair/timingbelt.php

How do you replace the water pump on a volvo 850


It's a fairly invlved process and you usually do the serpentine belt and timing belt along with it. It's about 2 hours worth of work all together. Here's a good tutorial on it: http://volvospeed.com/Repair/timingbelt.php

My 98 eclipse is making a screeching noise in the engine


1.Most likely alternator belt is not tight enough or need new one.2. A/C-Power steering belt is loose or need new one. 3. Bearing in A/C-Power Steering Tensioner is going bad. 4. Not the water pump unless you are loosing water all the time. Timing belt runs the water pump & you need to tear down the engine. If so ,you would need to replace the timingbelt,tensioners, and maybe the hydraulic tensioner. NOT FOR $300, more like 5-600. Get yourself a Haynes Manual for 95-99 Eclipse at AUTOZONE,Advanced Auto, or Pep Boys and read up on this.
