The water pump is part of the timing belt assembly, on the front of the engine, so it is labor intensive to replace. Most will recommend you replace the timing belt, idler pulleys, timing belt tensioner and seals at the same time, so you don't have to do the job twice. Most reputable shops will always replace the water pump when they perform a timing belt replacement package, again so you don't have to do the job twice. Hope this helps. Have a nice weekend :O)

Under the timing cover and is turned by the timing chain. Not a simple job for a novice.

Antifreeze leak, can not locate the problem.

Check your water hoses especially around their clamps plus check your water-pump. With the engine running, inspect for leaks. Your Thermostat may be faulty but usually this would cause your car to overheat. Get someone to rev-up your engine while you look-out for water leaks.

The car was leaking antifreeze and started smoking in 40 degree weather. I filled it and it stopped leaking, but the engine is still overheating. If its the water pump, how can I replace it on a 1992 chevy...


Is the antifreeze leaking out of a small hole on the water pump housing just behind the pulley?
You need to know exactly where the leak is coming from. If the pump is not leaking then there is another location.
Generally pumps either work or leak. They do not slow down and overheat the engine.
Where did the smoke come from? Under the hood or out the exhaust pipe? If you blew a head gasket and the exhaust was blowing steam that would cause overheating. The original leak under the engine would cause overheating that then will cause other problems like blown head gaskets.
Did you use stop leak or some quick fix? what did you do to stop the original leak?

On a V6 2000 Nissan Maxima where is the water pump located? Antifreeze is leaking out is this where I should start looking for the problem?


a lot depends on the location of the water leak.  If you have checked all the hoses, clamps, radiator and cap.  There isn't a lot left. The water pump is on the front of the engine under the timing belt shroud.  This would also be a good time to replace the drive belts, timing belt, any soft hoses and anything else that's iffy.

Leaking antifreeze


you need a water pump. water pump is inside the timing chain area/internal. the coolant is leaking out of a small hole behind the a/c compressor. water pump WILL fix it.
