Remove

TOC

 WARNING 

Do not remove the pressure cap from a hot engine. Wait until the coolant temperature is below 50°C [120°F] before removing the pressure cap. Heated coolant spray or steam can cause personal injury.

Remove the pressure cap when the engine is cool.

The coolant flow that provides cooling to the torque converter (if equipped) is achieved in different manners.

M Series engines use a torque converter cooler disc inside the coolant bypass hose to direct engine coolant to the inlet side of the torque converter cooler.

  1. Torque converter coolant supply
  2. Torque converter disc (orifice)
  3. Bypass hose
  4. Water pump.

Remove the two water pump water transfer connection capscrews.

Remove the three water pump mounting capscrews.

Rotate the water pump outward so the water transfer connection can be removed from the water pump.

Remove the water transfer connection from the water pump.

Inspect the water pump housing for cracks.

Inspect the water pump weep hole for indication of leaks.

NOTE: A streak or chemical buildup at the weep hole is not justification for water pump replacement. If a steady flow of coolant or oil is observed, replace the water pump with a new or rebuilt unit.

Remove the water pump cover, and inspect the water pump impeller for cracks or damage.
