Mrmoparrr: Some trans fluid on the inside of the hose helps ease the agrivation of
that top hose install!
hindflight R: Did not mention draining the coolant..
ARMANDO PEREZ: good Video, I replace mine on a 98 Durango 5.2 L'' Thanks
Kristin Lee: So i see that the video skips at one of the parts where you put the top
hose onto the water pump. The one in the middle... That's the one that is
the biggest pain in the A$$. I would have liked to have seen how you did
Joseph Feliciano: Really detailed video, you took your time and didn't ramble on about
needless information. I've always repaired my own vehicles and at age 60
this will be the first time i have to replace my water pump. again thanks a
John Bogy: hte prrm uoi jsbgjggpp
Erika Oster: Great video, helped me decide not to do my own, ha ha!
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
Eric Russell: Thanks for posting this ive got to do my durango 5.9 and this has been a
ricky buffalo: Is that the same type of water pump on 1994 jeep grand cherokee with a 318
bg147: That hose is in a horrible position.
kyle p: Excellent video I was able to swap mine out with ease.
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 :)
Jeff Johnson: Thanks man, you walked me through it!
Hatchiemann: Great Video and good info. Thanks. Now I can replace mine without a hitch.
(accept for that hidden hose) LOL.
Jeff Johnson: Thanks man, you walked me through it!
HyenasAteMyMarzipan: Thank you for making and posting this video. 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.
kyle johnson: great video helped we with my zj v8 thanks
dblitz1: Great clip. Thank you so much.
Adam Owen: Just wanted to say thanks, this was very helpful.
Chris Lee: Thanks for sharing. It is very helpful.
don wandell: not looking forward to playing with that upper hose.
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....
