How To Replace a Water Pump and Save $783

How To Replace a Water Pump and Save $783

Water pump replacement DIY. Learn how to replace a water pump at home using common hand tools. I was able to easily replace this water pump in under an hour and saved $783.

Replacing the water pump on many cars is not difficult and this is a perfect example of an easy to replace water pump. You could do this entire job without any special tools and I spent under $60 in parts which is unbelievable after getting the $843 quote from the Jaguar dealership. I will also do a video on a more difficult water pump so you can see what is involved in that as well.

Thanks PEAK for the coolant product placement in this video!

For daily updates, definitely follow me on Instagram:
The Dream Car video is coming but because it is a very special video for me, I want to make sure it is amazing, so it is taking a little longer than I thought to film and edit (you will see why when it comes out). In the meantime, I filmed and edited this water pump video to bridge the gap. I actually edited this video during my 2 week long road trip where I had meet-ups for you guys in Cincinnati, Indy, and Chicago! As always thank you for the support and stay tuneeeeeed!
P.S. Here is a link to the first every DIY video I did on my channel to help people:

Jeremy Whitfield says:

Wouldn't your coolant reservoir be 100% full using that no spill funnel? Also wouldn't the coolant reservoir be the highest part on the coolant system anyways?

I would have just filled the reservoir, left the cap off, and watched the coolant level while the car burps.

Shad Lynch says:

Hey chris I have a huge question about my car. My RPMS are jumping all the way to 6,000 or 5,000 and my car sounds like its skipping gears, driving in neutral or about to blow up while going about 10- 15 miles per hour. Thought it was low transmission fluid from an incident from awhile ago, put in tranny fluid and still has the problem. I have a few ideas about whats wrong with it like the coil caps, spark plugs, distributor, and few others. Im still new at working on cars but before i went and spent a bunch of money on guessing on what the exact problem is. I was wondering if youve came across something like this and had a more narrow thought on what could be wrong?
My car is a
2004 Chevy classic or malibu with a 2.2 eco tech engine. Ive sent my car to the shop and they gave it back with this problem. Ive already spent alot of money on this car and would like some advice before I take any other steps.
Please get back to this, it would be much appreciated, Im a HUGE FAN and Id love the feed back.
