Hey
water pump replacement is an easy job I would do the timing belt while I had the front taken a part. That would mean you need the belt and tensioner.taking the radiator out is the best way unless you want to remove the inspection plate to get access where you can lock the ring gear to keep the engine from rotating when you take the harmonic balancer bolt off. I would purchase a gasket and begin the process. The cost to have this job done is quite expensive. But, if you have never done one of these it might be left to a Nissan shop. That is, unless you know someone that can walk you through the process.

How to fix water pump


In the old times, the water pumps could be rebuilt with new bushings and seals. But that was long ago and you would be lucky to find any kits today.

If your vehicle is not leaking at the water pump, the newer vehicles use Electric cooling fans to help the water pump keep the heat down. If there is no leak or rattle in the water pump, your problem may be in the Electric cooling fans.

These fans are Temperature controlled, have fuses, and Relays and everything must work for the fans to spin.

If your water pump leaks, it must be replaced with a different pump. There are CD's on the procedure and some "How to" books at major autoparts stores. Many parts are Aluminum, so do not reef when tightening the bolts. Also check the length of each removed bolt so that the lengths are not mixed. You can destroy an engine block by installing the wrong bolt in the wrong place.

Please rate my info.

  1. Clean all parts well. Use care when scraping gasket material from the front cover and the pump. Do not gouge aluminum parts. Clean the bolt threads well. The torque specification is low and if the bolt threads are dirty, an accurate torque is not possible and leaks are likely to develop.
  2. Using a new gasket, install the water pump to the front cover. Install the cleaned and lightly lubricated water pump bolts. Torque to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  3. Install the water pump pulley and bolts and torque to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  4. Install the remaining components in the reverse order of the removal process. When refilling the cooling system, use the proper mix of DEX-COOL® and water. Check for leaks.

3.4L (VIN X) Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Partially drain the cooling system into a suitable container.

2000 GMC Sierra leaking coolant


The coolant is more than likely leaking from the water pump "weep" hole. If you were to remove the water pump pulley you would be able to see the coolant track and weep hole.
The leak is an indicator that the seal and/or bearing is wearing out and the water pump needs to be replaced.
If you have some common tools, time and patience, you would be able to change the pump your self. It requires draining the cooling system, removing accessory brackets and hardware then removing and replacing the water pump.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

Water Pump Leaking


the hardest part of this job is removing your fan clutch. you removed your top fan shroud, then your fan clutch, its reverse thread. take off your belt, upper radiator hose and 6 10mm bolts hold it in. clean water pump housing and put all back together. aftermarket water pumps do not come with theermostat, dealer pumps do. remove your belt tensioner from old water pump 3- 15mm bolt, two different sizes and install on your new pump. you need, 10mm socket, 15mm socket, flat head screw driver, pliers to removed hose,fan clutch tool(rent at autoparts store)
