The air pump injects air into the exhaust manifolds to reduce emissions. If bypassed, the vehicle still runs but you will fail the emissions test and the pump will freeze up if not used. I don't recommend disconnecting anything having to do with the air I breath.

Do i have to remove my timing belt in order to replace my water pump in my 1997 ford thunderbird lx its a 4.6 v8


Your car use3s a timing chain not a belt. The water pump will be serviced by first removing the serpentine belt and then removing the water pump pulley and then finally removing the water pump. It is a fairly easy pump to replace.

If you have any further question please ask I I will be happy to help.

Tryin to tighten the surpentine belt on a 2000 Ford Taurus


Serpentine belts use a spring-loaded tensioner pulley to keep them tight. If the belt is not tight, either it is not routed properly or the tensioner spring is broken. Look for a pulley mounted on an arm by itself, that turns no device such as an air conditioner or pump.

Surpentine belt.


depends on which v8 you have....the 4.7 the routing is as follows it goes under the waterpump pully over the alternator down and around the power steering pumpto the crank...it goes under the bottom of the crank to the idler pully.the flat side of the belt goes ver the idler then around the automatic tensioner to the ac compressor.
on the 5.2 and 5.9 it routes starting at the idler pully the flat side goes undr the idler the up to the ac compressor around the compressor and down to the power steering pump ... around power stering pump to waterpump where the flat side is against waterpump pully around water pump down and around crank up it automatic tensioner....around tensioner and up and over alternator
