It is located on the front of the engine behind the timing belt cover and timing belt. If you're going to do this repair yourself and you don't know how, I would strongly suggest buying a repair manual. There are step by step instructions and illustrated pictures on how to access, remove and reinstall the pump. You can buy them at any auto parts store for less than $20 bucks. Hope this helps. Good luck.

One way to tell a bad thermostat in a car is if the car overheats frequently even if there is water in the radiator.Stuck open - no heat from heater, temp gauge hardly moves off of cold.
Stuck closed - overheats engine, temp gauge quickly climbs to hot.listen for any rubbing, grinding, or whining noises from the pump. look under water pump while running, if pump is going bad. water will come out of weep hole on the bottom of the pump. good-day!

Tempeture gage goes up and down and less heat

You may have a weak water pump, bad thermostat, or an air locked system. Flushing the system is the best remedy first to pin point things.Then test the thermostat by taking it out and putting it in a pot of boiling water. If the thermostat opens, it is ok, if it doesn't it's bad. Let me know if this helps, and after you try that, if it doesnt work we can run further tests let me know

I have a 2001 crysler 300. I just got a new radiator and the transmission coolant box. my water overflow tank keeps boiling and i would like to know if it's a major job to fix it and what am i loo

Could be a vapor lock in the water cooling system. Check and see if there is a bleeder screw on the system. most are located on the thermostat housing.. may have it or may not. If fan is electric make sure it is connected and working properly. Could be that the thermostat is sticking also and needs to be replaced.... I have found that in some cases when replacing a radiator that the cap doesnt fit right and would only be the case if radiator has a cap. Worst case would be that water pump is bad and does not have to leak to be bad.. Sometime the water impeler that moves the water through system which is on the waterpump simply stops working.. could also be blown head or head gasket.....These are all thing that can make it overheat..My suggest is to try simple thing first. 1. make sure fan is working 2. check with auto store and see if your cars coolant system requires bleeding for vapor lock. 3. replace thermostat and radiator cap if it has one....If none of these work then comes the money if you need to replace waterpump or head or head gasket. more than likely nits not these two but im just giving all possible thing it could be.....good luck and if you find this info helpful then Please leave a rating on this post.....anymore problems fill free to contact me...

2001 deville over heating. Changed thermostat. Once old thermostat was off it was ok. Changed anyway. Still over heating.

First, check to make sure your cooling fan is working, if not , could be fan motor , relay or temp sensor. if it is, it may be a clogged radiator?? start with these things first, they are the easest ...there are a lot more things it could be... that will be more involved (harder) to get into...Hope this helps you ?? Good Luck

Over heating the resirvor is full we think its the thermostat but we don't know where it is

to find out if it your thermostat check the bottom radiator hose and see if is hot if not it is your thermostat and also the water could be the problem locate the water pump on the side of the motor if u see water leaking out of the shaft of the pump it is likely u have a bad water pump also

Why does my cadillac 1998 deville keep overheating?

Overheating can be numerous things: Fans not working, water pump, thermostat, overflow cap, and the list keeps going. When the engine is running and heats ups, feel the heat of the top hose, if the hose isn't hot, the thermostat is most likely stuck open and needs replaced. If it is hot we know you have circulation. The cap on the expansion tank may be defective, if it can't hold the pressure of the water, it will release at the overflow cap if the cap is bad. Also check the coolant level.

Car is over heating

Check for coolant leaks, usually a bad water pump will have a steady drip from the bottom of the pump.
Also check and make sure the radiator cooling fan is working.
If you find no leaks and the fan is turning the problem will probably be the thermostat.

Over heating think it is the water pump

It may be a couple of things, first before you replace the water pump, you need to warm the car up, and locate the thermostat houseing, it will have two hoses attached, and one will go to the radiator, and it will be on the engine, after you locate it, warm the car up, after it is warmed up, feel the hoses going too and from the thermostat houseing, if they are both warm, then it is not the thermostat, if they are not both warm, then your thermostat is junk, cheap fix, and easy to replace. let me know, and i will help you from their...........

Car overheat frequently and at time the engine sound is very loud

Several things can cause this overheating. Have you recently done a:
1. Check Hoses for Leaks
2. Check Radiator for Leaks --- Also, Change Radiator Cap ( can loose pressure there if
cap is bad)
3. Check Water Pump for Leaks. If Water Pump is bad, you will hear a loud noise from it
4 Complete Tune Up? Should be done at least 1x a Yr. Depending on how much you drive the Vehicle. Includes: Plugs, Plug Wires, Gas Filter, Air Breather Filter, PCV Valve, Adjust Timing,
Check Belts -- see if worn
5. Changed your Thermostat & Gasket and have the correct degree Thermostat in the Vehicle?
6.. Had your Radiator Rod and Cleaned out?
7. Temperture Sending Unit (located near Thermostat) could be bad
8. 02-Sensor (Generally located in the Exhaust Manifold - needs a socket with a space in it
to allow the Socket to fit over this top wire of the 0-2 Sensor )
9. Change oil and oil Filter.
10. Change Gas Tank Cap ---

Do all this yearly ( except the Radiator Rod & Clean ( do every 2-3 yrs), and you should not have
any over-heating nor stalling out, etc. and should pass emissions as well.
