how to replace a water pump for a infiniti g20
water pump removal
The drive belts transfer the turning force of the crankshaft to the water pump through a system of belts and pulleys. The belt causes the water pump pulley to turn which spins the impeller in the water pump forcing coolant to flow through the engine, radiator, and heater core.
modern vehicles like toyota rav4 does not use fan belts they use drive belts . these belts can be one long serpine tile belt or two belts depending on year and make these belts drive alternater water pump crankshaft pull power stering (again depending on year )
Power steering belt to crankshaft pulley. Alternator belt to water pump pulley and to crankshaft. A/C compressor belt to power steering pump and to crankshaft pulley. Smog/Air pump belt to water pump pulley. This is for a truck that had a 2 grove power steering pulley, a 2 grove water pump pulley and a 3 grove crankshaft pulley................
Crankshaft Pulleys and BeltsUsually, the answer is yes. the crankshaft pulley drives belts which in turn drive auxiliary devices such as alternators, generators, water pumps, smog pumps, power steering pumps, A/C compressors, etc.There are a few occasional exceptions where some auxiliaries are driven by gears connected to gears within the engine. Some of these instances include the engines in heavy construction equipment, agricultural tractors, and large truck tractors.
There are 2 or 3 depending on whether or not you have A/C. 1. Power steering pump to water pump. 2. Alternator to water pump. 3. A/C compressor to crankshaft.
Most likely the same as other Toyota drive belts which is control power steering, water pump, Air Conditioning pump, alternator and crankshaft.
Replacing the water pump entails removing the accessory belts, removing the value cover, timing belt cover, the right engine mount and mount bracket, the timing belt and crankshaft pulley and then the water pump. While your that far into the dis assembly you should replace the timing belt, the cam and crankshaft seal.
Serpentine belts are used on a Dodge Neon to operating the engine accessories like the alternator, water pump, and air conditioner compressor. The power is provided by the engine's crankshaft.
The water pump is located under the timing belt/ front pully cover you need to remove the front engine mount,all belts, crankshaft pully, then remove the cover ( its in two parts) and the camshaft /timing belt as it drives the water pump. Good time to also replace the belt. best to remove the front wheel to get at the crankshaft pully
It is circulated by a water pump
Reverse rotation water pumps turn in the oposite direction of the crankshaft and are typically used with surpentine belts. The back (smooth) side of the belt is routed around the water pump pulley, thereby rotating it in the oposite direction of the crankshaft.Standard rotation water pumps turn in the same direction as the crankshaft and are typically used with V-Belts.Turning a water pump in the wrong direction will cause overheating.
