Did you remove timing belt when you changed w/pump? If so timing could be off and hopefully no damage as these engines are valve benders when timing is off. Also, could you have forgetten to plug in the distributor connector?

Put water pump on now getting no fire


think you have not put the timing back right and it will need to be re done. hope you used a new belt and adjuster when you put it back together. you need to re line the timing marks on cams and on crank. then put the belt on adjust up making sure the number 1 piston is at the top as well as the timing marks on the cam check this with the crank making, put belt on and adjust up then turn engine one full turn. no spark plugs fitted. back to the timing marks making sure they line up if not re adjust the time until it line back up every time you turn the engine one full turn. then put the spark plugs in etc and start enging.

I have a 1998 volkwagon beetle 2.0 that needs a water pump so i buy the water pump install it put everything back together and put water inside then it just spilled out. tried to start it and now the


you should did your home work before removed old water pump most vw engines water pump is part of the timing belt assembly so when time to replace around 80k miles you should order complete timing belt kit which includes water pump with it.
so after you finish up if you didnt try to hard to run engine you may or may not damage any piece from your valve train!!even with all proper parts you have on your hand you still need high cost speciality tools to complete timing belt replacement on that engine recommendetion is tow your vehicle to mechanic shop and let them do it for you it will save you time and money!
good luck!

How do you change the water pump on a 1998 buick skylark?


Hi This is d_hubbs: Removal and replacement of your water pump.I'm assuming you have a 2.5 Engine.You did'nt give your engine Information but about 75% of your Year and Model had the 2.5 in them.
1st start by disconnecting your negative cable on your Battery. Then Drain your Coolant into a Container: then remove your drive belts remove your fan from the water pump: You probally should also remove your alternator and A/C Compressor to make it easier to get to your water pump, now remove your lower Radiator Hose, then remove your water pump mounting bolts, now remove the water pump: Now Clean the water pump surface on your engine where your gasket will be. Besure its Clean Good : NOTE: Sometimes if you purchase a New water pump it will not have the drive belt pulley on it. if this is the case Remove your Pulley from your old Pump and install it on your New pump : now Run some gasket sealer on your new water pump where the gasket will go.put gasket on the new pump lining up your mounting bolt holes.also put a small bead of sealer on the engine where your water pump will mount: now Mount your New water pump to the engine with the Mounting Bolts.Torque the Mounting bolts at 25-30 Foot Lbs.
Inspect your Drive belts and Hoses its a good time to put new ones on if needed.Now put your lower Hose back on-re-install your A/C compressor and Alternator-Put your fan back on-now put All your Drive belts back on be sure to Adjust the Belt Tension and Lock down the Bolts.-Fill your Radiator back up with coolant,If the Fluid you took out is still fairly new ,you can use it. If its Aged best off putting new Coolant. Replace the Battey Cable Start your Car and Check for any Leaks , After your Thermastat opens you'll need to recheck your Coolant Level. if no Leaks and Cooling System is Full you Are Done. Please let me know how my advice and Solutions have Helped you. Thanks for Using FIXYA From d_hubbs

WATER PUMP REPLACE DIAGRAM


  1. Step 1 Drain the antifreeze from cooling system. Remove belt from water pump. Examine and see if you have to remove anything else to get out the water pump. If so make a diagram of everything you are removing so you can put it back together.
  2. Step 2 Remove the hoses from the water pump. Find all bolts holding the water pump in . Loosen each one a little bit. After all are lose you can then remove them. Remove water pump. Put new gasket on and install new water pump. Hook up hoses to water pump. Look at your diagram and replace everything you had to remove earlier. Put the belt back on.
  3. Step 3 Shut the drain on system and refill cooling system. Make sure you use the antifreeze that is designed for system. Run engine for a couple of minutes. Check for leaks and check coolant level. Add if necessary. If there is no leaks you are ready to go.

Cam shaft timming marks 1999 Daewoo 1.6 liter


there is a special tool to hold gears in correct place on some of these models, but you can hold one cam at a time with a spanner then feed belt on exhaust cam then inlet cam gear
get someone to hold gears in place while you feed belt on.
the inlet cam is more prone to turn off mark more than exhaust.
if you have tensioner that needs retaining pin in when installing
you fit belt while aligning timming marks
fit tensioner as last spot to feed belt on with retaining pin in adjuster
get correct tension on belt by turning water pump so that you can flex (turn) belt 90 degrees only just while using finger and thumb
tighten water pump check flex
check all timing marks are correct
remove retaining pin from auto tensioner
turn motor over a couple of turns by hand observing tensioner arrow should hover around V mark and that all timing marks align up again(after one complete turn)

The water pump


ok this is fun lol.jack the car up and put it on a jack stand,then you will have to pull the drivers side tire off.now you need to put a jack under the motor and unbolt the driver side motor mount. lower the motor down it will only go so far.now for the fun part.you got pull the crank pully off there is one bolt in the center of the pully.once you get that off pull the timing cover off top and bottom. there will be 2 belts one is the timing and one is for the water and oil pump. the water pump it the one closest to the back of the motor. it would be best if you replace the timing belt since your already in there.make sure you get ALL the old gasket off the block.you dont want to have to do it twice.oh yeah loosen the tensioner pully to pull off the timing belt it right above the crank one bolt in the center also.if you didnt move anything you should be able to put the new timing belt back on with now problems if you did move something then you got to put it back in time to do that make sure the #1 cylinder is top dead center of the compression strok then turn the cam gear till where its says up on the spoke is pointing up.after that put everything back together and you should be good to go. hope this helps if you have anymore questions just let me know.have fun lol

Bottom wheel of water pump wont turn, burning belt


The wheel could be stuck but you need to have the water drained out and a mixture of antifreeze to water added to it. Be sure to keep in mind the heater core also has fluid in it and you could damage that also.
