Remove intake from tb, take off both belts w a 3\8 drive ratchet or breaker bar. Drain coolant, i belive its six bolts for tge water pump. Comes right off. New gasket and pump. I wanna say they are supposed to be torqed to like 18 ftlbs. And then fill the coolant back up threw the upper intake hose to make sure u get rid of most the larger air pockets. Start the car. Obviously aftrr installing the belts and intake, leave rad cap open turn the heat in the cabin on full blast and wait for the heat to blaze. After that you may have to top off the fluid but i did mine in about an hr er two
