Why does my 1991 Ford Laser GL keep stalling?


possibly the vacuum hose from the top of the rocker cover or near that exhausts the fumes from the oil to the carbie is disconnected or block...or if it is automatic it could be that the transmission needs servicing.ie new filter and gasket kit bout AUD$20 and clean new transmission fluid AUD$40.. just drop the pan one side at time. catch the old fluid. when its empty remove the entire pan with care. then clean the pan and remove old filter. then insert new filter and o-ring. then line up new gasket on pan and bolt back in to specific tension. pour new fluid in to specification.warm engine in park to runing temp then check fluid level... this is all to remove the possibilty that it is the transmission and not the engine AUD$60 and 2 hours of your time..

I have no clue on how to replace water pump on a 1995 chrysler cirrus 2.5L. I have to do this myself I dont have the money for a garage.


This is found on the autozone.com website.

2.5L Engine
See Figures 3 through 7
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Place a large drain pan under the radiator drain plug. Drain and properly contain the engine coolant.

This procedure requires removing the engine timing belt and the auto tensioner. To help assure proper alignment at assembly, it may be helpful to set the engine at TDC on No. 1 compression stroke. This should align all timing marks on the crankshaft sprocket and both camshaft sprockets.
  1. Remove the accessory drive belts and crankshaft damper.
  2. Remove the right engine mount. This requires safely supporting the engine with a floor jack and wood block so the mount can be removed.
  3. Remove the timing belt covers.
  4. Remove the timing belt and tensioner.

Fig. Fig. 7: Always keep the water pump's mounting bolts lined up with their correct mounting holes

  1. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
  2. Separate the water pump from the water inlet pipe and remove the pump.

To install:
  1. Thoroughly clean all sealing surfaces. Inspect the pump for damage or cracks, signs of coolant leakage at the vent, and excessive looseness or rough turning bearings. Any problems require a new pump.
  2. Install a new O-ring on the water inlet pipe. Wet the O-ring with water to make installation easier. DO NOT use oil or grease on the O-ring.
  3. Install a new gasket on the water pump and fit the pump inlet opening over the water pipe. Press the assembly together to force the pipe into the water pump.
  4. Install the water pump-to-engine bolts and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  5. Install the timing belt and timing belt tensioner. Set the timing belt tension.
  6. Install the timing belt covers. Install the right engine mount. Remove the floor jack and engine block from underneath the engine.
  7. Install the crankshaft damper.
  8. Install the accessory drive belts and set to the proper tension.
  9. Connect the negative battery cable.
  10. Fill and bleed the engine cooling system.
  11. Start the engine and verify proper operation, with no leaks

Where is the water pump on a Ford KJ Laser?


The water pump on the 92 Laser is easily replaced. You just need to untension the the belt driving the bump. Once you have done that all you need to do is undo the bolts and take the pump into your local auto parts dealer. Now that you have the pump install it and retension the belt.

U actually have to remove alternator belt and powersteering/a/c belts, then remove timing belt cover, remove timing belt adjuster, and slide timing belt off top pulley, making sure you mark it before removing it, so as to put it back in same position. Next, unbolt 2 bolts at bottom of water pump (this is a bit fiddly, but doable, then, undo water pump, replace with new water pump, being sure to use gasket cement, aswell as new gasket, which should be supplied with pump, then put it all back together, in reverse order of removal. Fill cooling system, check for leaks, and voila, u have done it :)

Be sure the O-ring is seated in the groove before installing the new pump

  1. Install a new O-ring in the water pump groove.
    NOTE Hold the O-ring in place with a few small dabs of silicone sealant.

    WARNING Before proceeding, be sure the O-ring gasket is properly seated in the water pump groove before tightening the screws. An improperly installed O-ring could cause a coolant leak.

  2. Install or connect the following:
    • Water pump, torque the bolt to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm). Use a pressure tester to pressurize the cooling system to 15 psi (103 kPa) and check the water pump shaft seal and O-ring for leaks.
    NOTE Rotate the pump by hand to check for freedom of movement.

    • Inner (rear) timing belt cover
    • Camshaft sprocket
    • Timing belt tensioner and timing belt
    • Right engine mount bracket and engine mount
    • Power steering pump
    • Upper and lower torque isolator struts
    • Accessory drive belts
    • Negative battery cable
  3. Refill the cooling system.
  4. Use a DRB® scan tool to perform the camshaft and crankshaft timing relearn procedure, as follows:
    • Connect the scan tool to the DLC, located under the instrument panel near the steering column.
    • Turn the ignition switch ON, and access the “miscellaneous” screen.
    • Select the “re-learn cam/crank” option, then follow the instructions on the scan tool screen.

How to replace a water pump on a 1995 bmw 318is


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Drain the cooling system.
  2. Remove the distributor cap and rotor. Remove the rotor adapter, the dust shield and the distributor housing.
  3. Remove the fan. The fan must be held stationary with tool 11 5 030 or some sort of flat blade cut to fit over the hub and drilled to fit over 2 of the studs on the front of the pulley. Remove the fan coupling nut; left hand thread-turn clockwise to remove.
  4. Remove the belt and pulley.
  5. Remove the rubber guard and distributor and or upper timing belt cover.
  6. Compress the timing tensioner spring and clamp pin with the proper tool.

Observe the installed position of the tensioner spring pin on the water pump housing for reinstallation purposes.
  1. Remove the water hoses, remove the 3 water pump bolts and remove the pump.

To install:
  1. Clean the gasket surfaces and use a new gasket.
  2. Install the water pump in position. Note the position of the tensioner spring pin. Torque M8 bolts to 16-17 ft. lbs. (20-24 Nm) and M6 bolts to 6-7 ft. lbs. (8-10 Nm). Connect the hoses.
  3. Release the tensioner from the holding pin. Install the upper timing cover. Install the pulley and tighten the bolts to 6-7 ft. lbs. (8-10 Nm). Install the belt and tighten.
  4. Install the fan, distributor housing and dust shield. Tighten the rotor adapter to 39-47 ft. lbs. (55-65 Nm). Install the rotor, O-ring and cap.
  5. Add coolant and bleed

Water/coolent leaking from behind the timing cover


Water pump is on the left side of the timing belt in the cover and spins on an O-ring to adjust the belt. Their is a coolant pipe to the the thermostat housing behind the timing covers backing plate also. Be sure to replace the timing belt with the tensioner/ oil seals along with the water pump. Remove the timing covers back plate and you will find two bolt to the pipe as mentioned. It has a large o-ring behind it. Have fun with this one. From: Ronnie Wrench
