First of all, drain coolant from the radiator.(Drain cock on bottom right side of radiator). Then remove the upper radiator hose from radiator. Doing this will help removing the plastic intake from intake plenum and air filter. After removing that, remove upper radiator shroud. (This is fairly easy, 7 screws,10mm socket.) Next remove the serpentine belt. Note: The serpentine belt should be marked as to what side belt went on due to the fact that they develop a memory in them and putting them on the wrong way reduces the life of the belt. Next remove the pulley (3 bolts 13mm socket), and now the water pump is in view. Remove the 4 retaining bolts using a 13mm socket.remove water pump and gasket. Reassemble in reverse order.
yes but what to do if the bolts are rusted and do not go out?
Drain the water from your Chevrolet 5.7 liter engine cooling system. Remove the water pump return hose. Remove the water pump belt. Remove the water pump retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new water pump.
aprox 1.5 hours
If you have a 3.5 liter motor, take it to an independent shop, I would not recommend it for d-i-y ers.
take it to a mechanic
The water pump, on a Chevrolet Avalanche 5.3 liter, can be removed by first removing the water hose. Remove the four bolts to the water pump cover. The water pump will slide out. Reverse the process to install the new water pump.
How do you replace timing chain & water pump on a2001 Chevrolet cavalier

If one takes a look at a fan belt diagram for a Chevrolet 3500 with an 8.0 liter engine, one can see a tensioner and water pump pulley. There are also crankshaft, idler, and generator pulleys.
The water pump on the 1st generation Concordes / Intrepids (on the 3.5 liter) is on the front of the motor under the timing belt cover. My advice is to buy a good repair manual (Haynes is good for most models) and replace the timing belt while you have all of that off.
If the motor will start and idle- let it warm up then carefully remove the radiator cap while the motor idles, if you see small bubbles coming to the surface in the radiator it is a blown head gasket. Replace gasket promptly it can do damage to the motor.
This isn't simple standard procedure small fingers want do the trick pull the motor or disconnect all motor mounts. This applies to a 1.6 liter I have not yet worked on the other 1.8 option. good luck or be prepared to pay.
you may have a crackd head or a cracked block
It should be right by the water pump in front of the motor, on the passenger side of the truck.
Replace radiator cap!!! I hope you didn't do all that other stuff for the same problem.
The average cost to replace your 1997 Chevrolet Blazer water pump is $230. The water pump will cost approximately $80 and require two hours of labor.
If it is a 3.0 liter, It is a very difficult job. Water pump runs off timing belt behind all the plastic panels and motor mount on front of engine. Haynes/Chilton book has the procedure but it is not for the mechanically challenged.
looking for info on locating water pump and timing belt on 99 subaru outback 2.5 liter motor, hopefully with a diagram...thank you
replace a water pump on a 2004 olds alero 2.2 litler
If the 5 liter bowl is first filled, then 3 liters of water from the 5 liter bowl can be poured into the 3 liter bowl. There should be 2 liters of water left in the 5 liter bowl, and 3 liters in the 3 liter bowl. Dump out the water in the 3 liter bowl, and replace it from the remaining 2 liters from the 5 liter bowl. Refill the 5 liter bowl, and pour 1 liter of water from the 5 liter bowl into the 3 liter bowl. There should be 4 liters in the 5 liter bowl, and 3 liters in the 3 liter bowl. Dump out the 3 liter bowl for a total of 4 liters left in the 5 liter bowl. Nice answer here as well: See link below for nice answer
The volume of 1 liter of water is 1 liter.
