Probably is. Get it fixed before it comes off and destroys the radiator.

Leaking water behind fan

The water pump is directly behind your fan clutch. Most probably, it's the pump. Shaft seal is already worn out (maybe because of damage bearing). You have to replace the whole assembly or replace the shaft, seal, and bearing. These items are within the repair kit that you can buy in parts store.

I have a 91 ply acclaim it over heats when in idle and when i stop i dont know why.

You may have a loose fan/water pump belt, a defective cluch fan, or a bad water pump, all these factor in to the reason why when you drive it doesnt over heat.
You see as you are driving the cool air is being forced through the radiator coils/fins and keeping the heat off the coolant in your radiator closed system cool thus no over heating, when you stop this principal theory stops as well and the water becomes hotter with nothing driving it through the radiator fins/veins to cool it off thus...over heating.
Check the belts first for being loose rotted or worn and repair as needed, next engine off of course grab the fan blades one hand on three o clock blade and other hand grasping 9 o clock blade and apply a pull sort of side to side movement to check if the clutch fan or the water pump has excessive side to side play, if so replace both parts that show signs of this side to side wobble/wear.
Be sure to top off any coolant that may have spilled out during operations of your engine.
Hope this helps, good luck!!

ur supposed to unscrew the fan at that big nut and remave the cooling fan shroud first then youll have all kinds of room. snug the pump back to the motor and break that nut loose. i always use an air hammer and chisel in the left of the top flat on the nuts, it starts it in the right direction and then un threads easy. you have to hold the pump pulley and turn that big *** nut. you can borrow tools from parts store for it if you dont have anything

Once you have all of the 8 bolts out of the water pump, there is nothing holding it on other than a gasket. So try using a hammer and a chisel to gently tap in the grove where the water pump separates from the block to break it loose.

Remove water pump have removed outer plastic blades of viscous fan and the four small bolts behind the water pump it seems loose but will not come away, is it just the internal impeller blades dont want to...

what's up led, the large viscous nut is loosened in the clockwise direction. after you remove the 4 nuts on the water pump, you should see one hole on each side of the water pump body. if you take 2 bolts out of the thermostat housing, you can use those to thread in the pump body holes.slowly tighten each bolt equally and the pump should come out. to install a new pump, lubricate the o-ring on the new pump and just push in by hand.

1997 jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2 liter V8. Water Pump. When I remove the big nut to remove the clutch fan. Will that lose the pulley that's attached to the water pump? I don't see bolts holding pulley wheel to the water pump? Is it pressed on or will it become loose when I remove clutch fan nut?
