CampbellU09: Nicely done! I really appreciate the way you are specific about each phase
and share little tricks to help make the job easier.
briansmobile1: At low speeds you have less fan speed AND less circulation from the water
pump. Converting to an electric fan or adding on up front and putting it on
a switch would help a lot. Also running a lower gear to get water pump
RPM's would help.
preachkjv: When I remove the water pump, there is water coming from between the block
& the timing chain cover. Do I need to replace the gasket on the timing
cover or will it tighten back up when I tighten up the new water pump?
oya691: @briansmobile1 well ive worked on trying to take off the fan clutch well we
ordered the tools for it it broke the pully holder and wrench so now im
just gonna take out the radiator and get a new fan and clutch because that
damn nut wont come off its be hard to do because its been cold out
oya691: @briansmobile1 well i cant the fan shroud was in the way i started to take
off all the hoses from the rad so i could take it out so i have room to
take the fan shroud out so i can get to water pump and we already bought
the fan and clutch plus my uncle has new hoses he wanted put on so 2 birds
oya691: @oya691 hey srry about so many messages but heres an update i finaly got
the raditor out and i got the water pump on with the fan and fan clutch
still on im so happy now when i go back to school on tuesday im gona take
the water pump in and use the torch and vise to get the fan and clutch of
to save them
steppnwolf76109: 4.7 liter question. runs hot at low speeds. Took to the dealership
twice...nothing! I noticed that one side of the radiator is very hot to the
touch and the other side is very cool to the touch. I trap coyotes so while
Im running traps(slowly about 10to 15 mph) It will start getting warm. When
I go on and get my speed up it cools down. I am going to post a video I
took today of temp gauge and speed. I would appreciate it if you take a
look and tell me I aint crazy!
nomocash: Great video. any difference with the 5.9 liter?
npuree109: @briansmobile1 will this work on a 1997 dodge Dakota V8 4wd?
John Minerva: I am having a problem with my 98 5.2. I was having problems overheating and
changed the water pump. My gut told me the pump was fine and when
everything was done, it still overheated. I noticed before I changed it
that when I put antifreeze in the reservoir, it didnt seem to feed into the
radiator. When I drained the radiator and shot water throughout the system
and put water into the reservoir, itoverflowed without feeding into the
radiator. Its hard to access so how can I check if its clogged?
13Johnny13V: I dont even have a manual I just watch your videos. Thanks again for
sharing your knowledge. Great videos!
supercannon2: I made my own fan clutch removal tool's out of leaf spring's and welded
some cheap air chisel's on the end. Just bump that trigger and it is loose
every time. And never broke em yet. If you want any detail's just PM me.
Good video once again!
wcarper1: Spectacular video, Thanks Brian!
briansmobile1: @rangerjoel I'm THRILLED! That's why I do this- way to go!
briansmobile1: @oya691 You can often remove the water pump with the fan on it. Then take
it to a shop with a torch and heat it to have them remove it while it's
hot. I've done that a few times, but in shop.
briansmobile1: Thank you!
patlumbard: any suggestions for a 2006 dodge dakota v6? same job water pump repalcement
briansmobile1: @2caliper Glad you "like" them. I try to make them easier to follow than
the Haynes or Chilton manuals because I always thought they were too vague
CardinalPilotKY: Brain -- THANK YOU! We replaced the water pump on my son's '96 Ram and it
went exactly as you have described in this video. We especially appreciated
your advice on how to remove the fan/fan clutch. We used a large
screwdriver instead of a pry bar, and ended up putting a pipe wrench on the
fan after we discovered our crescent wrench wasn't up to the task.
Everything else went EXACTLY as you described. Many thanks for this great
briansmobile1: @oya691 Cool
2caliper: great video man, ive been working on cars for 7 years, and have done almost
everythg to a vehicle and ive been watching ur vids for references so thks
for not making (virgin mechanics). feel like idiots u make it simple and
plain and very logically....
briansmobile1: Yes. It's right hand thread too.
frank hager: one thing i didnt see on here that my 98 ram ''also a 5.2, is there is a
threaded fitting on the top of the pump, for what there calling it is a
''bypass hose''. what im askin is should i use silicone on the threads, or
use that white plummers tape? cause if that crap leaks im screwed, will
have to redo everything,so silicone, or tape, or both??? thx
shithitthefanman: on a 1997 grand cherokee 5.2 does the nut on the fan clutch turn the same
way to get it off? thanks.
kaneohematt: brian you should make a video on replaceing a water pump on a 98 jeep grand
cherokee 5.2L. cant find any vids on it anywhere. thanks
troyoverton14: Brian - Thanks for the video on replacing the pump. I used them both today
and did the job myself. I had no problems getting the work done, thanks to
you. I decided to do some routine maintenance and found a serious
imperfection in the intake manifold and that caused some major difficulty
with replacing the t-stat, but I was able to use some permatex (the right
stuff) and I think I'm good to go (for now.) THX again!
1elAguila: good job amigo
briansmobile1: It's your call it could go either way there.
The Best Around: Lol, thanks briansmobile1, just like craphitthefanman, I'm replacing my
water pump on my 93 Jeep Grand Wagoneer 5.2 and the only thing I wasn't
getting how to do was how to take the fan clutch off without a special
tool. You saved my ass man, thanks. You should change the title to include
Jeep or include it in the description, trust me, there are a ton of people
out there that are looking for a video like this.
pipeliner1964: GREAT vidio. I have a 2001 Dodge Dakoa sport v6 w/ 113,000 miles. My water
pump broke. To where the fan bounces LOL. This vidio has been the only
information that i could find on the internet sofar. I am glad to see how
it is done so i can decide if i want to do it myself or have someone do it.
THANK YOU...Paula I gave you a like. I dont know why someone would dislike
this vidio. Must be idiots.
briansmobile1: Great idea- thanks!
briansmobile1: You're welcome- glad to help someone like you.
briansmobile1: @oya691 You're welcome man.
briansmobile1: Tell I say "you're welcome big guy!"
briansmobile1: @nomocash Practically none.
Scott Bazzle: Good video, but next time, I'd recommend someone else hold the camera. Whew!
briansmobile1: @CardinalPilotKY You're welcome! I'm so happy it helped you and your son
have a successful experience together.
E Graham: thanks just finshed water pump.your video was very helpful . thanks elliott
SixthGenGamer: My brother used your video to fix his Jeep. He says "thank you".
briansmobile1: @13Johnny13V You're welcome- you're the man!
apstlcpwr: will this be the same process for a 1999 5.9 durango?
briansmobile1: @justin3zelda You bet! Good luck!
briansmobile1: @rsimsyfsa Perfectly normal... but a reminder to use a bit of sealant on
the new one- it's cheap insurance against leaks.
oya691: thanks you helped me and my grandpa from blowing the damn truck up we was
stuck on the fan clutch for about a hour
rangerjoel: Your video is fantastic! After watching it this afternoon, I was able to go
out and change the water pump on my 2000 Dodge Dakota pickup truck. I am
not a mechanic and know very little about car repairs, but you video was
able to successfully guide me thru the replacement. My truck no longer
makes expensive growling noises any more. My wife is proud of me for saving
us some money on a repair, and even my father in law is somewhat impressed
with me. THANK YOU! Joel Miller
briansmobile1: @primitiveprince I'm glad it worked out for you. Thanks for the comment!
briansmobile1: You can tell I was hitting the gym pretty hard that week- I've got the
Anita Maxfield: I have a '98 Jeep Grand Cherokee and used this video. It is almost
identical to the vehicle shown. The video was a great help! Jeep all
repaired and ready to go! Thanks a ton, Brian! I will be watching more of
