Having problems with your 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 ?
Water leak 2003 dodge 2500 diesel
\015 Water looks to be coming out of bolt hole behind idler pulley does this go into water jacket ? thanx for any help before tearing this apart kevin\015
What you are seeing is the water pump (often mistaken as an idler pulley). It is a very simple change. Remove the belt, loosen the two bolts on the water pump ("diamond shape with pulley on front"), pull the water pump out, and reverse steps. You may want to drain your coolant into a very clean or new bucket first or you will loose good coolant when you pull out the pump. Once water pump is in place, replace belt and your good to go. Tools needed : Belt removal tool or 3/8 inch drive/ratchet with extra long hangle or cheater bar, and i believe a 10 or 13 mm socket for the pump. NAPA carrys a lifetime warranty pump...i suggest it.
Is it almost under the altenator? im leaking coolent from there and there is a grinding noise...
