Hello, I was recently gifted an older car. I want to get it on the road but I learned that I need to replace the water pump. I don't know much about cars, but I don't know much about anything until I'm thrown in it. Ihave great faith if I was provided with proper instruction, I could replace the water pump. I am very anxious to hear ur responses, I am eager to learn. The car is a 1998 Chrysler Cirrus

I hate to say it, but this isn't the car to lean from. On most cars, the water pump is bolted on the exterior of the engine and is driven by the accessory belt (serp belt). Not a big deal to replace. In this case, you have little to no room because of the positioning of the engine, you have to take the front of the engine apart, you have to remove the timing belt. This pump is driven by the timing belt. It is a big job and not an easy one.

Do you still want to try? Let me know.
