Having problems with your 2001 Chevrolet Impala ?
2001 chevy impala Trying to change water pump. need to pull pulley off power steering pump. i have a puller but there is not enough room to use it. what solution do you have to get pulley or water pump off ?
I replaced Intake Manifold Gaskets this weekend, which is a pain, however the water pump shouldn't be too difficult. Once the serpentine belts is removed, the water pump pulley is just attached with 4 bolts, I think they are either 10mm or 13mm if I remember correctly? They ARE a pain, because the pulley wants to turn, but it's do-able. After that is off, the water pump is pretty easy, roughly 6 or 8 bolts around the perimeter, just make sure the new one goes on the correct orientation, not turned clockwise/counter clockwise. There isn't a BIG difference in the bolt pattern, but it's enough to MAKE a big difference. Get each bolt threaded by hand before cranking them tight.
