Engine Diagrams


Hello. Here a non-photo diagram. Hope this helps!!!

The thermostat is located on the side of the water pump, the water pump is located just above the a/c compressor, the thermostat is fed coolant from the radiators lower radiator hose.
Thermostat :
1. drain coolant and tighten drain plug ( easier method : remove radiator cap, get big drain pan, place drain pan under lower radiator hose to radiator connection, remove clamp, slowly remove hose, allow coolant to drain into pan, now is a good time to remove radiator hose and clamp from thermostat housing )
2. remove thermostat cover / cap ( easiest to get at this when front of car is supported by jack stands and right hand side lower cover is removed ).
3. thermostat cap is held on by 3 bolts / remove thermostat.

You will notice that the thermostat's air bleed hole is pointing up and lines up with notch in water pump housing,,

ATTENTION :failure to install new thermostat in the correct location will cause engine to overheat.

1. install new thermostat to water pump, make sure air bleed hole lines up with notch, install and tighten bolts, install a new lower radiator hose, fill cooling system.

thermostat # 17670-77E00
lower radiator hose #17854-65G20
hose clamp #09401-36403
upper radiator hose # 17852-65G20

PUT GASKET ON WATER PUMP BUT FIRST MAKE SURE LINE UP GASKET HOLES WITH WATER PUMP HOLES BEFORE PUTTING ON THE GASKET SEALER.when gasket sealer set up 10 minutes then install new water pump with gasket to the engine torque to 89 inch lbs.or 10 NM that is about 7 ft lbs torque.you should be able turn water pump by hand if you cant turn water pump by hand got too tight damage water pump shaft bearing.when all done wait for THREE HOURS. before adding coolant i let RTV CURE SOME. torque water pump pulley bolts 18 ft lbs.

I need help with my 93 lesabre, im trying to replace the water pump and 1 bolt is impossible to get so im trying to take off the engine mount to reach it... is there an easier way?


Do you have the new water pump in front of you to reference the bolt holes. I'm not sure why you think you need to remove the engine mount.

I drained the water from my 97 venture last night because I had just treated a gasket problem with sodium silicate (liquid glass) not long ago. So instead of putting antifreeze in which counteracts I...


It could of been the water pump, remove the serpentine belt and check all the accessory pulleys. Water pump, alternator, and power steering pump, but i am leaning towards the water pump may have gone bad and will need to be replaced.

REMOVAL: 1) Remove the plastic belt routing diagram (there is a bolt underneath if I remember correctly)(yep, 8mm).
2) Using a 3/8 breaker bar or a ratchet, insert into the belt tensioner and push toward the back of the engine enough to release tension on the belt with one hand, and with the other hand, remove the belt from the water pump pulley. Then remove the bar/ratchet from the tensioner.
3) Remove the 4 bolts holding the shiny pulley onto the water pump (11mm).
3a) Large catch pan underneath, there's more coolant in there than it looks like.
4) With a ratchet and possibly a short extension, carefully remove the 5 bolts that hold the water pump onto the block (8mm).
5) Pry the water pump away from the block and clean both surfaces so they are free of gasket material.

INSTALL: 1) Line up the gasket and *carefully* fit the new water pump onto the block. The holes are very easy to line up wrong because they are almost, but not quite, equally spaced from each other, so be VERY careful you have all 5 holes lined up right.
2) Screw each bolt in a few tuns to make sure they all go in smoothly. If you get any resistance (it will feel like it's cross threaded), you have the holes wrong, and you need to rotate the water pump so the holes are lined up right. I can't stress this enough.
3) Torque all the bolts down (I can't recall the exact in/lbs - sorry) in a star pattern.
4) Mount the pulley onto the water pump shaft, torque bolts down (an air ratchet helps greatly here as the shaft will try to spin when the bolts start getting tight).
5) Release the tension as explained in step 2 at the top, put the belt back on the water pump pulley & double check to make sure it's on all the other pulleys while you're at it.
6) Bolt the plastic bolt routing diagram back onto the head.
7) Refill the reservoir and bleed the system of air.
That's it! It's an hour or so job if you've never done it before.

Note, if you're not using a gasket, get some water pump gasket sealer and make a gasket around the entire diameter of the mounting surface of the water pump. Remember to make little circles around the bolt holes also.

Good luck and keep me posted.

Location and placement of a water pump


ok you will see a pulley with NO GROVES with FOUR 10mm bolts
that's the water pump
remove that pulley
then there are FIVE 8mm bolts holding the water pump to front cover
remove the 5 water pump bolts
then use a screwdriver and hammer and tap the pump to seperate the pump from the cover
clean the old gasket off and reassemble
hope this helps

On 98 intrigue water pump removal how do i clear the ps pully


Im not sure what engine you have since this information was not provided. But the Power Steering Pump pulley usually has some 'holes' on the pulley in which you can get a wrench through to loosen and remove the bolt.
