Be aware that this pump has a pressed on pulley as opposed to #58-481 that has a bolt on pulley. You will need a 36mm open end wrench or similar. My largest was 1 1/4" and I ended up grinding it out to fit. That said, there is no graceful way to undo the fan bolt. I tried different belt loadings, sanding the pulley, strap wrench on the pulley. Finally ended up wrapping the pulley with adhesive sand paper (it still turned), then started stuffing work gloves into the belt. It took wedging 3 gloves into the belt to finally put enough tension on it so as to remove the fan nut. All downhill after that!

HTH!

    The O-ring for the inlet tube was too small and leaked.
    You can replace this pump without removing the alternator / AC compressor but I wouldn't recommend it. The small bypass hose should also be replaced and you do have to remove them to get to it.

      Product was as described. Hopefully it will last, the OEM lasted almost 300K. Bearings and shaft and alignment all seemed perfect for a refurb unit.

                  The gasket surface on my pump was uneven and needed to be filed flat. Other than that it bolted right on without a problem.I made my own tool to hold the pully from moving so that the fan could be unscrewed. The pully has holes in the front so that you can us a spanner wrench to hold it from spinning.

                  2003 Dodge Dakota 3.9L had a chirping noise after replacing belt, tensioner, and idler pulley. Old pump had free play in it but did not leak. Lesson #1 from replacement: keep belt on until large fan nut is loose. This keeps tension on water pump pulley while you rap on end of large crescent wrench to break loose nut. Lesson #2: Replace short bypass hose going into top of pump as part of water pump replacement. Not much room to work with to loosen/remove short bypass hose from pump without repositioning AC compressor. Remove seven screws holding compressor bracket to engine and reposition (with AC lines still attached) and there is plenty of room to get to water pump mating surface and bypass hose. Easy job once the right parts are removed and repositioned.

                    Would a bad water pump cause the heater in the truck not to blow hot air.1993 Dodge Dakota V6 Magnum The motor doesn't run hot. It circulates in the radiator ,already changed thermostate to 195-f . Can hear rattling sound when idling occasionaly.If motor held at high rpm for period of time 3-4 minutes at 3500 rpms heater then will start blowing hot air.That tells me heater core is not plugged.Could it be the pump

                      Hi Bern, the water pump could possibly the problem. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic for further diagnosis.

                    Is the torque value 18 ft lbs and also is a coolant sealer needed on ANY of the threaded bolts (to keep anti-freeze from leaking out).

                    I did notice either some locktite or something on two of the bolts that came out of the block..

                      Hi Scott, the Driveworks Water Pump - Remanufactured - Part No. 58-560 will require 30 ft lbs and you will have to use a thread sealer. You can just follow to old criss cross or X method. Don't fully torque one side and then the other, first start out by bolting it down, wrist tighten then go back and torque the bolts.

                    can a water pump be bad even if it doesn't make noise and isn't leaking? I thought my clutch fan was bad...but after the new one installed ...nothing has changed..temp keeps climbing...water pump or perhaps the thermostat stuck?? something tells me that the water just isn't moving in there...thanks!

                      It's easy to determine if the problem is the water pump. Remove the belt and with both hand try to wiggle the fan if you see the pulley wiggle or feel the fan shift then it's the water pump. I have been through this before.

                    • A:

                      I'd look into the thermostat being stuck first, its very easy to check. Just take the thermostat out and put it in a pan with water and heat the water up on the stove. If nothing happens then you have a bad thermostat. Your radiator might also have some blockage in it too. To check this, just run the vehicle and when it gets hot start feeling the radiato to see if it has hot and cold spots. If it has cold spots then the raditor is clogged cooling passages because there's no hot coolant flowing through the radiator. Your cooling system may also have an air pocket in it. If this is the case, then you need to get the air out by opening the system at its highest point, or there's a funnel with tube that connects to where the radiator cap is that rasies the highest point in the system allowing the air to escape at the highest point.

                      It may make a light whining noise but usually there is no noise. Usually, you will notice movement in the pulley and leaking from the pump.

                      I currently have a water pump going out on my 99 Dodge Dakota. It is not leaking, but the bearings are shot. The pulley has play in it, which means the fan has lots of movement. You can hear the bearings rattling/grinding and making the whining/chirping noises you'd expect to hear from anything with bad bearings. I have just recently started to faintly smell antifreeze, but have yet to see any.
