Water pump removal & installation removal & installation caution never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Avoid physical contact with the coolant. Wear protective clothing and eye protection. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Clean up spills as soon as possible. Coolant can be reused as long as it is reasonably clean and free of debris. If you suspect contamination, or if it is more than a couple of years old, it should be replaced. Common steps 1. Disconnect the battery negative cable(s). 2. Drain the cooling system. 3. Remove the accessory drive belt. 4. Remove the lower radiator hose (except diesel). 5. Disconnect the heater hose from the pump, if fitted. Warning most cooling system hoses use “constant tension” hose clamps. When removing or installing, use a tool designed for servicing this type of clamp. The clamps are stamped with a letter or number on the tongue. If replacement is necessary, use only an oem clamp with a matching id.

System brake transmission shift interlock description the brake transmission shifter interlock (btsi), is a solenoid operated system. It consists of a solenoid permanently mounted on the gearshift cable. Operation the system locks the shifter into the park position. The interlock system is engaged whenever the ignition switch is in the lock or accessory position. An additional electrically activated feature will prevent shifting out of the park position unless the brake pedal is depressed approximately one-half an inch. A magnetic holding device in line with the park lock cable is energized when the ignition is in the run position. When the key is in the run position and the brake pedal is depressed, the shifter is unlocked and will move into any position. The interlock system also prevents the ignition switch from being turned to the lock or accessory position, unless the shifter is fully locked into the park position.

Remove stamped steel (right side) timing belt cover. Do not remove the sealer on the stamped steel cover, as it is reusable. 4. Remove cast (left side) timing belt cover. If reusing old timing belt, mark belt direction of rotation for reinstallation. Caution: align camshaft sprockets between marks on rear belt covers before removing timing belt, or damage to valves and pistons may occur. Caution: when aligning timing marks, always rotate engine by turning crankshaft. Failure to do so will result in valve and/or piston damage. 5. Rotate crankshaft to align crankshaft sprocket timing mark with tdc mark on oil pump housing. Align camshaft sprockets with marks on rear covers. See fig. 2 and fig. 3 .
