Question about 1997 Plymouth Voyager

2 Answers

1997 Voyager 3.0, I have matched the new water pump up with the old one but for some reason I can only get one bolt started and the others will not line up with their holes. I have not actually gotten it pushed on to the O-ring on the water pipe coming out of the engine. It did not seem to cooperate with me, this is the reason I was hoping it would go on as I screw the water pump bolts in. My idea hasn't worked, please help.

That pipe needs some silicone lubricant such as dielectric grease,i also recomend finding a new oring for that pipe they tend to leak once the pump is removed.

If you are certain that you have he correct pump and you have it oriented properly, there is corrosion built op in the housing on the block. Remove the pump and clean the are with water sandpaper. Afterwards if yo still have a problem, take the original bolt to the hardware store and get 4 bolts of the same thread 1\2 1 inch longer. Use them and place them around the pump so you can (a)tighten them in an even pattern, (b) ensure you have the holes properly lined up as Plymouth pumps can be tricky.LOL. You will not get this pump in trying to tighten one bolt at a time if there has been rust build up. It will break before it goes in. You will have to draw it into the housing balanced. This is similar to some vehicle rims that have a deep recess, you cannot tighten one bolt or it will bind, you have to tighten each a little bit and opposite one another. Once it catches in a little you can remove the longer bolts and put in the original ones. This should work for you

Im trying to change the alternator in my 1997 grand voyager 3.3 liter v6 and o have the old one all disconnected. how do i get it out to put the new one in.




) IMPORTANT - Disconnect the neg battery terminal (IMPORTANT) 2) Release the spring loaded tensioner (makes the serpetine belt tight). The control bolt that keeps it tight is right tunder the alternator (1994 Voyager). Use a long handled torque wrench. 3) Hold on the to serpentine belt (otherwiuse it'll be a mess) keep it tight-ish. Pass a stick through it and keep it tight or prop it up with a bungies or something!!! Be gentle. 4) Two bolts hold the alternator, one is obvious the other is more towards the back. Watch your knuckles be gentle but strong. Remove the nuts, gently lift it out and hold it there. 5) Disconnect the leads from the the electrical that are attached. Place the old one on the bench. 6) Watch that belt!!! 7) Get the new alternator. 8) Connect the electrical. 9) Bolt it in. 10) Place the serpetine belt in the groove, careful make sure it doesn't pop out anywhere else below. Popping out (even one groove) and driving it could destroy your belt. 11) Back to the tensioner, relase slowly, it will make itself tight again. 12) Attach the battery again. 13) Start the car. 14) IMPORTANT remember, clean those battery posts and cable leads. the dirt won't allow full contact thus minimal recharge. Trust me, been there.

Trying to get instructions on replacing a side mounted water pump


Place front end on jacks or ramps. I belive there is a lower plastic guard that protects the serpintine belt from water splash ( I know the 96's did not have it but uncertain about 1997, is so remove it) Drain radiator/cooling system. The serpintine belt will have to be removed, you'll need to use a box end wrend on the tensioner to remove pressure from belt, it will fight you but she will go. Next remove bolts that hold pulley on to water pump shaft (I believe there are three, all 10MM) next remove all of the bolts that hold the water pump on, I belive there are either 5 or 6, either 8 or 10MM. Clean surface where pump applies to, be certain to use new o-ring, should be with water pump. Reassemble in reverse, install new serpentine belt and use proper 50/50 mix of radiator fluid and water. Start engine, let it come to heat and check for leaks, keep eye on temp gage to be certain things are ok.

I hope this may have assisted you,
Tom

I need to change the water pump and I need to know the proper way to do it for a 1997 Chevy Blazer LS 4.3 litre.


First you need to drain down the coolant, secound take top of fan shrould off 2#10 bolts on each side, third loosen fan bolts, fourth take belt off, fifth take fan off, sixth unbolt anything that is bolted to water pump like power steering pump, maybe ac. pump heater hoses ect. last take 4 bolts out that hold water pump to block 2 on each side and thats it. Clean old gasgets off engine block and bolt on new pump with new gasgets witch will come with new pump. Put back to gether in reverse order.

How do you replace a water pump in a 1997 jeep grand cherokee laredo?


Hi there Ramarob

Here's a step by step to remove and replace the water pump on your Cherokee.

Be advised, all 4.0L engines, some 2.8L engines and some 4.2L engines have a reverse rotating water pump. You can ID these from the word REVERSE or REV imprinted or cast on the housing and/or fan. There will also be an 'R' stamped into the impellor.

Make sure your replacement pump is the correct type, If not, expect some major turmoil.

The procedure:
1. Remove negative battery cable
2. Open radiator valve - drain cooling system2.gif
3. Remove cooling fan2.gif and shroud
4. Remove belts (see my tip on serpentine belts if needed)
5. Remove water pump pulley from hub
6. Remove hoses from water pump
7. Remove accessory brackets from the water pump.
When removing the P/S pump and/or AC compressor, leave the hoses attached and move them out of the way.
8 . Remove the remaining bolts and detach the water pump from the engine. The bolts are three different lengths. Make note of where they came from.
9. Compare the new and old pumps. Make sure they match.
10. Scrape off the old gasket material.
11. Apply a thin continuous line of RTV High Temp sealant to the water pump side of the gasket.
12. Put a couple bolts through the pump to hold the gasket in place and mount the gasket.
13. Apply Another coat to the other side of the gasket.
14. Attach the pump to the engine. Screw the bolts in finger tight.
15. Attach the remaining bolts.
16. Tighten them up in 1/4 turn increments.
17. Re-attach all the stuff you removed
18. Refill the coolant, adjust belt tension.
19. Run the engine and check for leaks.

Hope this is very helpful
Mike
