Changing the water pump


If you wish to change the water pump of the engine, it would be best to consider other replacements as well, such as the drive belts. The labor that needs to be done is almost the same as replacing the belts. The reason being is that you need to get these off and the cover to get to the water pump. Once you have consider that and the cost, have the belts loosened up or removed by adjusting the alternator or other components your belt are connected to. You may have to remove a cover of the engine facing the belts to get to the pump. From there you need to remove the bolts and that should be it.

How do you change the water pump on a 1995 nissan maxima?


Water Pump REMOVAL & INSTALLATION VG30E Engine The water pump is located in the front center of the engine. Fig. 1: The timing belt cover must be removed to fully access the water pump 89613g33.gif
NOTE: Be careful not to spill coolant on the timing belt when performing this procedure.
  1. Drain the cooling system through the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator, and the drain plugs on both sides of the block. CAUTION
    Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  2. Remove the upper radiator hose.
  3. Loosen and remove the drive belt(s) from the water pump pulley.
  4. To make the operation easier, remove the timing belt cover. If necessary, remove the thermostat housing and gasket for access.
  5. Remove the water pump-to-engine bolts (noting different lengths) and remove the pump. If the water pump has excessive end play or rough operation, replace it. To install:
  6. Clean the gasket mounting surfaces.
  7. Use a new gasket and coat the gasket with sealant. Reinstall the pump and torque the water pump-to-engine bolts evenly to 12–15 ft. lbs. (16–21 Nm).
  8. If the thermostat housing was removed, install it with a new gasket. Install the cruise control unit if removed.
  9. Install the tensioner, tensioner bracket, air conditioning belt and adjust the belt correctly.
  10. Install the upper radiator hose.
  11. Refill the cooling system. Connect the negative battery cable.
  12. Start the engine, run to normal operating temperature and check for the correct coolant level and for leaks.
VE30DE Engine The water pump is located in the front center of the engine. Fig. 2: Water pump location and torque specifications — VE30DE engine 89613g39.gif
  1. Remove the splash shield on the passenger side of the vehicle.
  2. Drain the cooling system. CAUTION
    Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  3. Remove the upper radiator hose to access the upper water pump bolts.
  4. Remove the small hose attached the upper part of the water pump. Fig. 3: Removing the upper radiator hose will allow better access to the upper bolts and the small hose attached to the pump 89613pj7.jpg

  5. Remove the drive belts from the front of the engine.
  6. Remove the tensioner pulley for the air conditioning compressor belt. Fig. 4: Removing the A/C belt tensioner will allow more room to remove the pump once it's unbolted from the engine 89613pk1.jpg
    NOTE: It is recommended that the crankshaft damper be removed to make water pump removal and installation easier.
  7. Remove the water pump pulley-to-water pump bolts, followed by the pulley. Fig. 5: Use a prybar with a square edge to hold the pulley in place while loosening the bolts; then unscrew them by hand 89613pj5.jpg

  8. Remove the water pump-to-engine bolts. Label each bolt, noting location, and bolt length. WARNING
    Failure to install the bolts of different lengths in their proper locations could result in a cracked timing chain cover, requiring time consuming and costly repair. Be sure to label each bolt and its location.
  9. Remove the water pump from the engine. If the water pump has excessive end play or rough operation, replace it. Fig. 6: The water pump has to be carefully positioned for removal 89613pj8.jpg
    Fig. 7: Use locking pliers and carefully twist out the timing pointer if pump removal is difficult 89613pk2.jpg
    To install:
  10. Clean the gasket mounting surfaces and grooves.
  11. Using liquid sealant, apply a continuous bead to the gasket mounting surfaces of the water pump.
  12. Install the water pump and torque water pump-to-engine bolts to 12–15 ft. lbs. (16–21 Nm).
  13. Install the water pump pulley and torque the water pump pulley-to-water pump bolts to 4.6–6.1 ft. lbs. (6.3–8.3 Nm).
  14. Install the tensioner pulley for the air conditioning compressor belt.
  15. Install the crankshaft damper, if removed.
  16. Install the timing pointer, if removed.
  17. Install the drive belts from the engine and set the proper tension.
  18. Install the splash shield on the passenger side of the vehicle.
  19. Attach the hoses to the upper water pump and the main inlet pipe.
  20. Refill the cooling system to the appropriate capacity.
  21. Start the engine, run to normal operating temperature and check for the correct coolant level and for leaks.

Need to change the water pump and thermostat how do I go about that?


thermostat will be in a housing that the top radiator hose connects too, drain all the coolant, remove the hose and 2 or 3 bolts holding the housing in place, remove housing and thermostat, clean all gasket surfaces and replace in reverse order.
The pump will be held onto the block by several bolts, remove the bolts and the bottom hose and lever the pump off the block, check that all the bolts are removed before levering off.
Clean all the gasket surfaces as previously described and replace in reverse order again, replace the coolant, start the engine and let it run while watching the coolant level, it will go down but top it back up and keep an eye on it for a few days after the repair has been done.
No leaks = good job
leaks = do it again
dont forget to use gasket sealant on the pump and the thermo housing

97 buick la sabre , I have removed all bolts on


You are correct it is connected with two plastic elbows the will almost always break when you remove the assem. If you have removed all the bolts you should be able to wiggle and work it loose by gently prying on it, just look at the direction of the elbows and work it in that direction, but i highly reccomend replacing both elbows.

Coolant leak behind water pump


No it doesnt. The other end of that pipe is the thermostat housing, it has several bolts holding it to the engine, once removed the pipe will slide out, where you will find a large o-ring where it enters the waterpump. Once you replace the o-ring apply some grease to get it to slide back into the water pump housing without damaging the o-ring.

Fuel pump


There are two metal straps that hold the tank in the vehicle. First you will need to disconnect the filler neck from the tank and any other black vent hoses that will pose a problem. Place a floor jack under the fuel tank and remove 2 bolts (1 in each strap). Then carefully lower the tank. You will need a special tool for the actual fuel lines where they are connected to the pump. It is called a quick disconnect tool. Once the tank is free of the vehicle you will see the pump housing on top. Most likely has about 8-8mm bolts that will need removed-and there is your fuel pump.. Labor guide calls for 2hrs -normally takes about 45mins to complete..

How hard is it to get a pump put of the transmission and put another one in


You've got to remove the transmission from the vehicle. It's a tough task in the driveway and I wouldn't recommend it unless you've done one before. It comes out the bottom and the axle shafts must also be removed. Once you've got the trans out, you slide the torque converter off the shaft and there's the pump staring back at you. It has 5 bolts locking it down and once you take those out you'll need a slide hammer (threaded into those same holes) to get it out of the trans. There's a gasket underneath it, a rubber o-ring around the outside and several steel o-rings on the shaft. ALWAYS use new bolts when putting it back in and use thread-lock on the torque converter bolts.
