Please. Tell. Me how to change out, water pump.

Before we start make sure the car's engine is cold and the car is located on level ground with the parking brake set, also make sure you are wearing protective gloves, eyewear and clothing.
Step 1. First release the hood latch cable located under the dash on the drivers side on most cars, then disconnect the negative terminal from the battery. Note: radio presets will be lost. So make a note of them to re-enter them after the job is complete.
Step 2. Next, raise the car to gain access to the underside of the car. Always lift the vehicle according to the vehicle's manufacturers instructions. Use jack stands to secure the automobile.
Step 3. Remove plastic covers under the engine compartment to gain access to the radiator drain valve or lower radiator hose. Position a coolant drain pan under the radiator to catch the engine coolant. Loosen the drain valve or lower radiator hose the release the coolant. Once this process is complete move to the topside of the engine compartment.
Step 4. Remove any plastic covers and shields to gain access to the main pulley to water pump bolts. Loosen these bolts two turns but do not remove them. Next remove the main drive belt. On some models you may need to remove the upper radiator hose and brackets to gain access.
Step 5. Now, remove any obstructing brackets or accessories needed to remove the water pump mounting bolts. Remove the water pump mounting bolts. Use the leverage bar and carefully pry up on the snout of the pump, this will break the gasket seal and allow the pump to be removed.
Step 6. Once the pump has been removed use the gasket cleaner to remove any excessive gasket material or old sealer. The gasket sealing surface needs to be as clean as possible to ensure a good seal for the new water pump gasket.
Step 7. Before installing the new water pump match the old part to the new part, make sure the bolt holes and mounting flanges are exactly the same. Once confirmed that in fact we do have the right part install the water pump gasket. Some water pumps require gasket sealer while others do not. Typically water pump that uses an "o" ring seal do not need gasket sealer.
Step 8. Next, reinstall the water pump and hold it in place by installing one or two mounting bolts tightened by hand. Next, install the remainder of the mounting bolts, Tighten the mounting bolts evenly and to the recommended torque tightness.
Step 9. Once he new pump is on and secured reinstall all mounting brackets and hoses.
Step 10. Reinstall the main cooling fan or water pump drive pulley.
Step 11. Install fan shroud and plastic valances as needed.
Step 12. Now reinstall the serpentine belt, make sure the belt is aligned with the pulley groves.
Step 13. Reinstall the upper radiator hose and double check all bolts and cooling hose connections.
Step 14. Remove the radiator cap and pour the recommended coolant mixture until full.
Step 15. Start the engine and allow to idle, Keep adding coolant as needed until the engine is running at operating temperature. You will know the engine is at operating temperature because you will able to notice coolant moving inside the radiator and the radiator will get hot. You can also reference the engine temperature gauge. Reinstall the radiator cap and check the level of the coolant reservoir, add if needed. Also after the engine has been running for a few hours allow the engine to cool completely and recheck the engine coolant level.
It is a good idea once the job is done to inspect the under carriage for leaks and the engine compartment for funny noises to ensue the job it done correctly.

1995 BUICK PARK AVENUE Water pump replacement


Here is how you do it step by step;

STEP 1. Loosen the bolts on the water pump flywheel then remove the belt.

STEP 2. Take a oil-pan length 2x4 and use it in betwen jack and oil pan and jack up engine almost so that steering pump fluid cover on top side almost hits cross bar.

STEP 3 Remove the center bolt of the motor mount holding the two halves of the mount together.

STEP 4 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.

STEP 5. 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 paritally split apart the two mount halves. You'll see that you can now get at the two hidden bolts.

SEP 6. Remove the water pump pulley wheel. There are a bunch of small and little bolts in the water pump...some on bottom side.

STEP 7 Remove them and old pump and Scrape off old gasket.

STEP 8. Apply new gasket and sealer to new pump and reverse order to install.

Good luck..

Hi. here's the procedure on how to replace your spark plugs. Spark plug location is in this procedure.

  • Park the car in cool, shady area and allow the engine to cool.
  • Step 2 Remove the parts of the Grand Am engine that hinder access to the spark plugs. For a 2.2 L engine, remove the ignition coil housing. For a 2.4 L engine, remove the bolts that hold the retaining ignition coil and disconnect the electrical connector. Pull the assembly straight up and away from the engine to remove it. For a 3.1 L engine, remove the air cleaner. For a 3.4 L engine, remove the windshield wiper module cover and rotate the engine for service access to the rear spark plugs.
  • Step 3 Locate the spark plug wire and grab it by the spark plug boot. Twist the boot in both directions and pull back to remove the wire.
  • Step 4 Insert the spark plug socket over the old spark pull and unscrew it from the cylinder well. Remove the old spark plug.
  • Step 5 Lubricate the threads of the new spark plug and screw it into the cylinder well.
  • Step 6 Test the tension and adjust it to the required setting. It needs to be 15 ft-lbs. for a 2.2 L engine, 16 ft-lbs. for a 2.4 L engine, 13 ft-lbs. for a 3.1 L engine, and 11 ft-lbs. for a 3.L engine.
  • Step 7 Reconnect the spark plug wire and twist it to lock the plug in place.
  • Step 8 Repeat Steps 3 through 7 for the remaining spark plugs.
  • Step 9 Replace all of the parts that were removed from the Grand Am in Step 2 to reach to the spark plugs.

  • Step 1 Place a drain pan underneath the radiator. When the engine is cool, drain the cooling system from the radiator into the pan and disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Step 2 Take the accessory drive belt out of the engine and disconnect the heater hose from the water pump.
  • Step 3 Remove the lower radiator hose from the engine (unless you are working with a diesel engine).
  • Step 4 Disconnect the heater hose from the pump, remove the upper radiator hose and take out the fan and shroud assembly.
  • Step 5 Loosen and remove all 4 bolts from the water pump pulley and take out the pulley (except on 4.7L engines) and loosen and remove the bolt to the heater hose pipe.
  • Step 6 Loosen the clamp to the bypass hose attached to the water pump (except on 4.7L engines) and remove the 7 bolts connected to the water pump. Remove the one nut in the 4.7L engines. Take note of the bolts locations, as they are of varying lengths.
  • Step 7 Clean all mating surfaces and install the new water pump with a new gasket and o-ring, lubricating it with petroleum jelly. Tighten the bolts to 40 foot pounds (54 Nm) on the 4.7L engine, and 30 foot pounds (40 Nm) on the other engines.
  • Step 8 Install all components in the reverse order in which they were removed. Use sealant on the heater hose pipe when installing and tighten the nut to 12 foot pounds (16 Nm), making sure that the pipe bracket slot is against the mounting bolt. Tighten the pulley bolts to 16 foot pounds (22 Nm) on the V-10 and 20 foot pounds (27 Nm) on V-6 and V-8.
  • Step 9 Reconnect the negative batter cable, and refill the engine's cooling system with coolant. Start the car and check for leaks when the engine reaches normal operating temperature.

    How do you replace a water pump for a 97 ford contour

    How to Replace a Water Pump

    1. Scraper
    2. Socket Set

    Step 1 * With the engine off and cold, open the hood and locate the vehicle’s water pump.
    o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
    o Tip: Before removing the radiator cap, squeeze the upper radiator hose to verify that the cooling system is not pressurized.

    Step 2 * Remove the radiator cap.

    Step 3 * Install cooling system pressure tester. Apply the pressure indicated on the radiator cap or in the owner’s manual.

    Step 4 * Inspect cooling system components for leaks.

    Step 5 * Place a drain pan under the radiator. Open drain valve or remove the lower radiator hose to drain cooling system.
    o Tip: Depending on the vehicle, lifting the vehicle may be required to gain access to the lower radiator hose.

    Step 6 * Remove the drive belts or serpentine belt.

    Step 7 * Remove any hoses connected to water pump.

    Step 8 * Unbolt water pump from engine. Remove the water pump.
    The water pump is retained by four bolts

    Carefully remove the water pump from the engine block

    Step 9 * Using a gasket scraper, clean the mating surface on the engine block.

    Step 10 * Install new water pump and new gasket. Tighten bolts to manufacturer’s specifications.
    o Tip: You may want to use a light bead of silicone designed for water pumps.

    Step 11 * Re-install any hoses and belts that were removed.

    Step 12 * Re-install drain plug or lower radiator hose.
    o Tip: Squeeze the radiator hose. If it feels soft you may want to replace the hose at this time. Always use new hose clamps.

    Step 13 * Refill radiator with a 50/50 mix of coolant and distilled water, then pressure test the cooling system and check for leaks.

    Step 14 * Fill overflow reservoir with same mixture.

    Step 15 * Leave the radiator cap off, start engine and let it idle. You should see the system“burping” bubbles of air. Refill the radiator to the top.
    o Tip: Most air is expelled after a couple minutes of idling. Be cautious of potentially hot fluid overflowing.

    Step 16 * Install radiator cap.

    Step 17 * Road test vehicle, keep an eye on the engine temp gauge if vehicle runs hot, there still might be an air pocket in the cooling system. The cooling system should be topped off after vehicle has fully cooled down.

    Hope helped (remember rated this help) Good luck.
