Put a jack under the engine and take out the mount and after you finish installing the waterpump install the mount back.

Need to change out driver side motormount


To replace motor mount on your vehicle. Park the vehicle in level position. chock the wheels and set the parking brake, put the transmission shifter in park and disconnect the battery positive cable. Motor mount is located between engine and chassis. Support your engine whit the jack using 3/4" piece of plywood and set it under the oil pan. Loosen the motor mount bolt and lift slightly jack upward about 1/2" and remove the motor mount bushing and replace it whit new one and reverse instalation of removal process.

Where can I find a diagram for the cooling system on a 1998 cadillac deville online? We need to know the position of the thermostat, and water pump.


Hello: I don't know of any free information unless you join a website called AllData but I can explain where the thermostat and Waterpump are located on a Cadillac Northstar engine.
Thermostat: Follow the lower radiator hose from the radiator to where it hooks to the engine. The nipple where the hose connects has 2 10mm bolt heads, remove the bolts, the thermostat is behind it, note the position it comes out so you can install the new one the same way. Waterpump is in the same area, remove the 4 10mm bolts that hold the cover of the Waterpump housing. You may have to remove a heater hose. You will have to have a special tool (can get one at Advance Auto Parts) to remove and install the new Waterpump. Both of these items are on the drivers side on the engine.

Procedure on changing waterpump


  1. first drain the cooling system.
  2. loosen bolts on the waterpump pulley and remove the inner fender cover on the pass/side.
  3. remove the surpentine fan belt, note; make a diagram of the belt routing so belt will go back on the right way.
  4. remove the bolts you loosened on the pump pulley, use a pry bar to pry engine back to have enough room to remove the waterpump pulley.
  5. remove the bolts holding waterpump, you will want a pan under the van to catch coolant when waterpump is removed,
  6. remove the pump and clean old gasket off the block and install new pump,
  7. reverse to install new pump and fill system with coolant allow engine to run until thremostat opens,hope this is helpful. heres a few diagrams of the waterpump and the cover and the belt routing, good luck and hope this is helpful.

How to replace a waterpump on a 1999 chevy lumina?


The waterpump is located on passenger side of the car. Its location if you were standing looking from the passenger side at the engine is at the top right of the engine.There is a pully at the top of the engine that has 4 10mm headed bolts should be a non grooved pully.Loosen the bolts on that pully with the belt on once you loosen these bolts but do not remove them just yet.Using a 3/8 drive ratchet find the belt tensioner and release the belt making sure you remember the belt routing.Typically the the belt routing is printed on a plastic shroud that is just above the waterpump. Once you have removed the belt take out the 4 bolts that you previously loosened.Remove that pully now and the waterpump is right behind that. Sometimes the pully sticks a bit so you may need to put something behind it to gently dislodge it.There are 5 bolts on the waterpump the head of these bolts are 5/16 or 8mm remove the the five bolts using a quarter inch drive ratchet.Once this is done you may need to dislodge the pump.A dead blow hammer works well or a block of wood and a hammer could be used in a pinch.This should not require alot of force.Just a few taps should do it you are just breaking the gasket seal at this point.Now that the old pump is removed the old gasket needs to be removed from the waterpump housing. make sure all old gasket material is removed so the new one will seal properly.Take out the replacement pump and and line the new gasket on the waterpump once you have done this remove the gasket so you can adhere the gasket in place with a thin coat of rtv or weatherstrip adhesive.Now you ready to reverse the process to put it back on.Just make sure to line up the five bolt holes and your ready to go. Hope this helps.

Chev Montecarlo 3.4 waterpump replacement


Not difficult at all. Drain radiator. Use 10 millimeter wrench and loosen water pump pulley bolts. The easy way to prevent pulley from turning is place a 3/8 inch drive ratchet in the belt tensioner and increase belt pressure to hold pulley. After bolts are loose, relieve tension on belt to remove it. Then remove bolts from pulley followed by pulley itself. There are 5 8 millimeter headed bolts holding pump on housing. Remove all five, clean housing surface, install new pump and gasket. Although there are five holes it will only line up one way. Pay attention to the removal of the original pump to line up new one. Reverse removal proceedure. Open bleeder screw(s) when refilling radiator. One will be one the metal tube above the water pump housing. The other will be at the opposite end of the engine where the radiator hose meets a metal outlet. This one will need to be opened a few times to bleed air as the thermostat opens after engine is cranked. Hope this helps.
