I have a 92 seville sts. I think the engine is a 4.9 liter. Anyhow, the waterpump is squirting out water when it gets hot, kinda like a small squirt gun. I'm mechanically inclined, and would like to try and replace it myself. I've never done one before, but by just looking at it, it looks easy. Does anybody have a step by step for changing this out, and does anybody know if i'll need any special tools. I found the waterpump today brand new for about $38.00 (not a reman). I just want a little guidance before i proceed. Thanks for any help!

Re: BOLTS on water pump on 92 seville?

:rant2:
I'm half way into changing the water pump on this BEAST! My problem is I have 3 bolts that will not break loose!. I am scared to death about breaking them off. If they break, I don't see any easy way to re-tap the holes that are in the block without removing it from the car, there is just no room. I've been hitting them with penetrating spray for three days. A buddy even gave me a nifty little gadget with a tube that heats them up a little, but still no luck.
They are as tight as a Knat's A%$* if you know what I mean. :eek:

Any advice????

Any help would be GREATLY Appreciated!
