Defective Water pumpI recently replaced my water pump on my 93 sentra.It's kind of easy if you know something about cars..take off right wheel,remove top pulley by removing the bolts the water pump is behind it.Then remove the bolts of the water pump itself..


I'm not a member but i do a lot of work on my own cars,both are Nissan sentra's.

take it to the dealership, a nissan sentra takes atf fluid you can only buy at the dealership. For how much the fluid and tools for it cost it will be about the same price for them to do it

You will need a general screwdriver, a spark plug socket, a socket wrench and and extender, a wire brush and a silicone dielectric compound. You should find more of these tools at SEARS or your favorite car parts dealer. You will need a spark plug wrench with an extension to replace the spark plugs in a 1998 Nissan Sentra. You can find an instructional video at

I know you will need a pickle fork or ball joint separator for the joints, other than that i think it just unbolts so sockets and wrenches
