Question about 2001 Buick Park Avenue
To get the water pump off the 3.1 l v6, first release the belt by releasing the belt tensioner. Remove the 4 10mm pulley bolts. Then remove the 6 8mm water pump bolts. Have a pan under the car to catch the coolant. Be sure no pressure in the system before you begin. Scrape off old gasket, and install new pump. Open cooling system bleeder screw which is located on the top of the pipe just above the water pump. Fill with coolant. After a few minutes the level will go down as the air comes out. Fill again until coolant comes out of the bleeder, then close it. Dont fill up to the top of radiator, as it will expand as it gets hot. After the thermostat open, then level will drop, then fill all the way and re-install cap. Thank you, hope it goes smooth, mike
