It sounds like you don`t have much mechanical ability(no insult)so i would suggest that you take the car and your water pump to a shop to have it replaced.

Hendrix cm, Your best bet is to purchase a Chiltons repair manual for your vehicle. These books take you through the whole R&R process and usually with exploded views that can be very helpful in these situations. Good luck with this.

My water coolant is dripping from a small hole situated near the water pump , what is the problem pls


What you are describing is the beginning of water pump failure. That little hole is called the weep hole and if coolant comes out that means the pump is failing.

Tip

Water pump and timing belt are the same job.


If you need a new water pump or timing belt make sure they do both at the same time. Don't let them just replace one and not the other. They already have it tore apart to where they can access both so make sure they do both.

How do i replace the water pump....3.3 L


first find the water pump for every vehicle ive ever worked on the water pump is always right above the main pulley once you locate the pump unscrew the hose from the pump to the radiator and then take all the bolts off the pump slowly wiggle the pump off so you don't damage the gasket on the water pump then take your new water pump and line it up to the holes for the bolt and put all the bolts back in and then reattach the water pump hose to the pump and to the radiator and then fill the radiator up and your good to go

Car loses water from overflow cap. Replaced water pump, thermostat and overflow bottle and cap.


Stop me if this has NOTHING to do with your problem (or if it's already been solved)...I don't know a lot about cars so...My Ford Taurus kept overflowing antifreeze from the reservoir cap. Car started to over heat and kept spilling"/dumping" antifreeze every time I turned the car off. The antifreeze reservoir had been replaced less than a year prior, and water pump, radiator, etc looked at. I got a free estimate that stated my water pump was NOT the issue, but I did need a new radiator and my reservoir tank needed to be replaced (again)....$800 parts and labor.... However...I noticed the overflow holes on the tank, and also that the orange liquid (antifreeze), was also spilled around the cap lid. I also noticed the CAP on the antifreeze reservoir would loosen when tightened completely- hence, not sealing correctly. So I went to the dealer, bought a new reservoir cap for $15, replaced it, and never had an issue after! I also found out that the CAP was a DEALER PART ONLY, and when the tank itself was replaced, the CAP was the OLD one! Problem fixed! Maybe it's similar? Or something "more serious".

My car keeps overheating. My coolant is draining out all the time so i refill it about every other day. Oil lights on and i got an oil change so its new oil but the light is still on. So i took it in and...


If you don't repair the water pump you will be walking, A used motor runs around $500-$750 and the labor to put in the engine is $500-$1000 so you dicide if you want to spend a couple hundred now or $1500 later, I would fix the water pump and install a new thermostat and coolant.
As for the oil light= check that the wire connector is attached to the oil pressure sensor located by the oil filter, replace if the wiring is good, now if it is still on, put an oil pressure gauge on where the sensor is installed and check to make sure the oil pump is producing pressure

Which direction does the timing belt installs?


You know, I replaced alot of these and seen that on the directions. And yet they do not put a mark on the new belt. I have looked these things over and found know way to tell. So I just put them on. I have never had one come back. May I also recommend that since your already in there, that you replace all the timing components and the water pump too, if it's in there.You don' want to go back in a couple of months from now.

I put on a new clutch fan and do not know how to reset it to the thermos stat


Clutch fans don`t need to set, they just screw onto the water pump, the heat from water pump travels into it to turn it on.
