How do I remove the water pump on my 2000 Suzuki Esteem 1.8l i took all the water pump bolts off and it wont budge. I put a pry bar on it still wont budge. Do i have to remove the timing cover to get it off.
Man, I think they do stuff like that on purpose so you have to bring the car into a shop. Like in the manual, it won't tell you the amount of transmission fluid the car takes because you should, and I quote, "trust your Suzuki mechanic to complete this service for you". What irony.
I did, once, have a car which had a history of killing water pumps. The good news was you popped off the serpentine belt and unbolted the water pump, and you could take it off. That car was an '88 Cavalier Z-24. Turns out I got the right year, because the next year they changed the engine and you had to turn the engine to get the water pump off.
