bg147: That hose is in a horrible position.
jarin wilson: I usually remove the AC compressor and lift it out of the way and also
disconnect the alternator and remove or at least loosen the entire front
end accessory drive bracket. This has to be done in order to replace the
bypass hose(replace the spring clamps with screw band style clamps....8mm
usually) Now to R&R the thermostat, either remove the AC compressor or the
alternator(thermostat should be a 54mm 195 degree...on most, emphasis on
most) If I remember right, the one FEAD(front end accessory drive) bracket
bolt is behind the idler pulley, remove it to gain access. Will, you are
spot on in this video, the tensioner bolt for the pulley and the tensioner
assembly itself(remove ign. coil) is a 15mm. It is scary to sit down and
actually think about the exact procedure(when you do this for a living)
while watching someone else who is also a tech do it, lol. I wonder what
the entire dashboard assembly looks like in this vehicle, they are
notorious for cracking, even more so on the BE/BR pick up trucks. Awesome
hindflight R: Did not mention draining the coolant..
Adam Owen: Just wanted to say thanks, this was very helpful.
James Tait: Thank you very much for this video, I'll be doing this to my '98 Ram 1500
with the 5.2 when the weather permits me to do so. The bearings on the
pulley are shot and squeaking ever so slightly right now and I'm not losing
coolant, yet, so I still have a bit of time :)
Eric Russell: Thanks for posting this ive got to do my durango 5.9 and this has been a
Jeff Johnson: Thanks man, you walked me through it!
ricky buffalo: Is that the same type of water pump on 1994 jeep grand cherokee with a 318
Hatchiemann: Great Video and good info. Thanks. Now I can replace mine without a hitch.
(accept for that hidden hose) LOL.
HyenasAteMyMarzipan: Thank you for making and posting this video. Very helpful.
kyle johnson: great video helped we with my zj v8 thanks
dblitz1: Great clip. Thank you so much.
kyle p: Excellent video I was able to swap mine out with ease.
Chris Lee: Thanks for sharing. It is very helpful.
summitsin victoria: Good job, I used a chain bolted to the pulley on 1 end, the other end I
used the bolt that holds the by-pass hose to prevent the pulley from moving
while removing the fan.
don wandell: not looking forward to playing with that upper hose.
Jeff Johnson: Thanks man, you walked me through it!
al dooze: Thank you Very much , I believe this vid will help me greatly. GREAT VID!
thomas coleman: can be the next kilmer guy on cable that is key board and spelling bad keep
up the great work
robinsonsauto: Oh, yes that works very well, thank you for sharing this tip
Mitch Cooley: You made it easy for me. Thanks for making this video
robinsonsauto: Thank you, my pleasure, it can be very time consuming however i have found
this is what keeps me enjoying the work and it keeps me honest lol the
positive feedback and interaction keeps me posting, thanks again
rickson11000: I've used an air hammer to remove that style fan before, it works great
wildeyednorthernboy: its funny 2 me people dont really work on there own stuff...but that is how
guys like us make a livin PEEEACE
RZGOBLIN: Good job Will
BraveMind1151: This is professionally made. Great work and very comprehensive.
Steven North: Thank you for the detail of the job.
robinsonsauto: Thank you sir.
jason cole: is it the same in a jeep Cherokee 5.2 v8. for water pump.
mickeymouse12358: great videos keep them coming
robinsonsauto: I often ask the same questions, some people are more than capable however
just don't want the hassle, 2 of my best costumers are industrial mechanics
that work on machines all day however don't want to be bothered working on
their cars, my old man is a master auto tech and has me service his cars,
he says its one thing to do work for others, however he would rather pay me
when it comes to his own, when im his age i may feel the same way lol
Stephenobrien28: working on my 1992 dodge dakota 3.9 v6 magnum is it good practice to change
the thermostat at the same time I do the water pump?
frankenstein04: I am doing the timing chain, radiator, upper and lower hose, water pump and
a coolent temp sending unit...ugh today shall be a long day!
caleb colburn: im not sure where its leaking from. all i know that the radiator and hoses
are good.. but is there any other place that anti-freeze can leak from
besides the water pump?
Edmund Mendez: Very nice video tutorial. If you can please do one for spark plug
replacement on a mid 2000 Nissan Quest. I would be most thankful if you do.
Tragic Hero: 1:55 Sounds a little redneck but i have used framing squares (L shaped some
even have a hole u can put a bolt thru) to hold the water pump from moving
to get clutch fan off. Everything From 5:54 - 21:25 will be the same on a
Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 5.2L 12:35 that's where mine was leaking from. i
think they call it a weep hole. it might leak one day and not the next. at
least that's how mine acted before i replaced it Great Video!
robinsonsauto: That works as well
JoexCool: Thanks, it's really not a hard job, but this vid was a big help. It's nice
going in knowing what you have ahead of you. Just did this on a 98 durango
robinsonsauto: Thank you for the compliment, will do
bestmastermind951: is there a tool that exists to remove stubborn hoses and that doesnt mess
them up like a pair of pliers or screw driver would?
jason cassidy: Hey Will you should do a video of your toolbox and tools, I have seen a few
on youtube and I thought it was interesting seeing what tools everyone uses
and how they organize their toolbox. Thanks, Jason.
bobby redondo: way to go, eric the car guy would be proud. this was really helpful. I
imagine there may have been a struggle getting the hose back on where you
replaced the clamp. Was wondering where the other end of that hose went to?
The one on the top of the water pump that you had difficulty removing after
you removed all of the bolts? thanks for posting
spelunkerd: Very nice demo, Will. When I last did my Dodge Ram water pump, I had to
replace that short bypass hose because it was rotted out. Strangely that
was the only hose that was bad, presumably because of all the hot metal
that surrounds it, slowing and reducing cooling. When you use that tack
spray, is there a reason you don't just spray it onto the gasket, then put
the gasket on after it tacks up? Overspray wouldn't happen at all....
robinsonsauto: Thank you, it may be some time before i get one in so i cant guarantee
anything however; if one passes through the shop i will do that for you,
thanks again for the compliment
robinsonsauto: spelunkerd I agree, thanks for bringing this up. if the hose is not pliable
meaning if you squeeze/bend the hose and it has dry rotted cracks then the
hose will need to be replaced, this one was in good condition, tack spray I
like to spray the gasket and surface, maybe it’s just me however it seems
every time I just spray the gasket it tends to fall off at the worst time,
therefore I just spray both let tack then apply, I tend to stick to what
worked in the past just a matter of preference
TOXIXIFY: My dad and brother who are mechanics, say the same exact thing. I find it
silly, but it is understandable.
Canaan Perry: Thanks for the video, this would have been too intimidating for me to try
on my own, but I think I'll give it a shot now after watching your
instruction. Thanks again :)
619SixFour: Besides the tack spray, did you use any sealant?
ljcann1: Thank you for doing this. It's a little easier on my Ram. More room.
