    water pump.

    so my water pump went out the other day

    i looked through the haynes manual and it doesnt seem TOO complicated. how bad are they really? i have all the tools , just not enough experience. or would it be better just to take it to the shop?

    Re: water pump.

    The Haynes books are fairly straight forward and are often a good source of info for the job you are about to do.

    I say go for it and just keep all your parts together so they do not get lost.



    Stupid questions make more sense than stupid mistakes!

    It is best to remain silent and be thought of as stupid, rather than opening your mouth and removing all possible doubt!

    nice link.
    it does seem pretty simple. the shop wants $215 + tax to do it.

    Re: water pump.

    since you have an older car it should not be to bad I did the pump on my truck in two hours ... the clearance on the front of those engines are about the same as my truck so should be no problem.

    lol... ya I have a buddy that is in school to become a Honda tech. He told me that to change the water pump in a newer Honda that you have to take the timing chain off... What a joke.

    Re: water pump.

    im thinking about it.

    the only thing i can think of , is that i dont have a gasket scraper.
    when i pull the belt off , do i have to keep things aligned so **** doesnt **** up ? or does it not matter. im not saying ill be spinning that **** around , just curious how carefull i have to be.

    also , i would have to flush the rad , right?
    ....this may be interesting..

    Re: water pump.

    Their is nothing hard about it. Its stright foward and is as easy as chnging the alt. The hardest part is getting the fan unbolted from the water pump. Use a cresent wrench and a dead blow put the cresent on the nut and hit the resent in the right directoion to loosen it. It will not come of if you sit their and do it by hand the belt will just slip. One you get that loose un bolt it and then unbolt the pump. And as far as a gaket scraper use a razor blade.

    Re: water pump.

    when you go to refill the truck with coolant, either get premixed coolant OR look up the capacity of the cooling system, divide that number in half and put that much of pure antifreeze in it, then top it off with as much water as it will hold..this will give you a perfect 50/50 mix which is what you want/need.

    Re: water pump.

    thanks.
    i just dont want to have any unexpected BS come up.

    my heater core is bypassed , so i cant flush that. would i need to flush the block? or would flushing the rad be enough?


    and another possibly dumb question... when you bring the old fluid/s to autozone , advanced etc.. , does it matter what type of container its in? like could i use an old milk jug? or would they have a **** attack?
