Engine Cooling problem
1999 Chevy Monte Carlo 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 180000 miles
I need to replace the water pump in my 1999 Monte Carlo. It has about 180k on it, and has a 3.1 liter V6. The water pump hub is wobbling visibly when the engine runs and is getting worse. It is also starting to make quite a bit of noise. It looks relatively simple, but I don't know if I need to take off the entire aluminum housing that's attached to the block, or if the pump is just an insert. I can get the serpentine belt off, but I'm a little lost after that, and am not sure if I'm going to need a pump and kit of seals, and if I should get some sort of gasket sealer or not. Can you please help with directions, and what I'm going to need to replace? Thanks!
have the same problem?
