The water pump is located inside the timing cover, the timing belt drives the water pump, replace timing belt also when doing water pump, will save you labor down the road. Hope this was helpful for you.

check your wiring for dirty connections or broken wires, you may have wires that are rubbed through or connectors that are not making full contact. you will need an ohm meter and check wires for continuity. a wiring diagram will be needed.

1989 Honda CRX won't start after a short trip.

Easy one.This is a common problem on 88-91 Civics and CRX's.Check your main relay under the drivers side dash.It provides power to the ECU,fuel pump,and injectors.Its a squarish box with a single plug going into it held on by one 10 mm bolt.The solder joints break down over time and cause the condition you're having.You can pry off the plastic cover and resolder the joints if you are handy with a soldering iron,or just ask for a main relay at Autozone,etc.
