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:

    • Chris, I need help! My 2014 passat has a clunking noise while going over small or large bumps. I have checked every joint and tightened every bolt. I've been under this car every other day trying to find the culprit. I'd bring the car in but due to the lockdowns affecting my income. I just don't have the money to spare on that. I feel it might be the output cv axle seal, but I don't want to dig in that if it's not that. Plus I can't find any videos on this. Please, I need help with this. Thank you for any help.

  • I am confused on the last step involving the funnel. Suppose that in your coolant reservoir you have a minimum and maximum line how would you go about getting in between there using the funnel Is it even possible? Or is there in alternative missed method to removing air from the system?

  • Just in case you don't watch until the very end of the video (13:00): That catchpan is important. If you get any coolant on the driveway or garage floor, be sure to clean it up - it tastes sweet, pets will drink it, and it destroys their kidneys - as little as a tablespoon (dogs) or teaspoon (cats) can be fatal.

  • This is a simple replacement that will cost a LOT of ca$h at a garage or dealership. Take that saved hundreds (over $500) and give it to a charity and wash your hands well. You are done and gained confidence for other basic jobs on a car (plugs, PCV valve, and coils are all simple to replace!).

  • I use RTV on gaskets all the time, stick them to one surface makes it way easier to install in tricky spots. also sometimes if the surfaces are damaged etc they can still leak with just a gasket, Always pays to use a bit of RTV given its very cheap

Have found pump with metal propeller on UK ebay for $30. Super easy to change it, but the pump was still leaking through the gasket. After a week or so it stopped.

  • I have a 2008 Ford Fusion, 82,000 miles, and I'm on my 3rd water pump (well that's what the mechanic said) and it's leaking again. I emailed Gates and asked them why their pumps didn't hold up. They haven't replied. It's very irregular leaking. It's not a hose but the gasket in the water pump. The pump is an entire system, not what you did on the Jag. I'm thinking of just taking the front of the pump (they're $110 if you buy it) off and cleaning the surfaces and using water pump gasket sealer. Your thoughts please. Oh and I'm gonna do it myself. I'm tired of $500 a pop!

How do u diagnose the leak is due to a failed rotating pump or just the edges which can be repaired by changing just the gasket .
