Sir
Plz attempt my answer

To be able to replace the bybass hose on the water pump, you must first make room to gain access to the hose clamps that attach to the water pump. To make room you must first remove the fan clutch, fan and fan shroud all of them simultaneously.
To do that, start by loosening the tensioner roller with a rathcet and removing the serpentine belt. Then loosen the fan cluthc nut using a 32 mm spaner and loosen the bolts of the fan shroud. Then pull the three things upwards (fan shroud, fan, and fan clutch).

I have replaced one before without removing the radiator, you will have to remove all the fans and shrouds and be prepared to skin a few knuckles if you do it this way.

SOURCE: how to replace timing cover gasket on a '97 jeep grand cherokee

Pull the alternator brackets and front engine brackets off until you get to the water pump. You will also need to remove the fan shroud and then the fan. Remove the water pump and then you will see an aluminum cover and that will be your timing cover. remove the cover and clean all the gasket off the engine and the cover. use a razor blade, and make sure there in no oil or grease on the parts where the gasket lies. Put your gasket on, bolt the cover back on with the new gasket and repeat the teardown process in reverse.

SOURCE: How do i change a water pump on 1996 grand

I'll assume you have a 4.0l

The 4.0L engine is equipped with a reverse rotation (counterclockwise) water pump. The word REVERSE is stamped or imprinted on the cover of the viscous fan drive and on the inner side of t he fan. The letter R is stamped onto the water pump impeller. When replacing water pump, ensure proper pump is installed. Installation of the wrong water pump will cause engine overheating.

NOTE:On models with 4.0 L engine, front grill must be removed to access radiator draincock. Draining cooling system can be accomplished by removing drain plug from side of block as well as by loosening radiator draincock. Drain plug is located on lower left side of engine block.

Disconnect negative battery cable. Drain cooling system. Disconnect electric cooling fan connector. Remove electric cooling fan and electric fan shroud assembly (if equipped).
Loosen, but do not remove, 4 water pump pulley-to-water pump hub bolts and 4 viscous fan-to-idler pulley nuts. Remove accessory drive belt. Remove 4 viscous fan to idler pulley nuts, and remove fan and shroud together.
Remove 4 water pump pulley bolts and remove pulley. Remove power steering pump and bracket. Disconnect heater hoses and lower radiator hose at water pump. Remove 4 water pump retaining bolts. Remove water pump.

SOURCE: water\coolant leaking from engine after shutting engine down

It takes a lot more than a small leak to consider your engine as "totaled"
Have the system pressure tested and carefully inspected. Every leak has a source. some are easy to find, some are a bit more difficult. A shop can use a fluorescent dye and a black light to locate the source if you can't.
I'd check the corners of the intake manifold and timing chain housing. Also, check the hoses again. A small pin-hole can squirt coolant far away from the hole itself and is often very difficult to see.

How to replace a fuel pump on a 1994 jeep grand cherokee?


I'm assuming that your Jeep have a 5.2L V8 engine (as mine), then check this procedure...

Grand Cherokee 5.2L Engines
(see Figure 6)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Open the radiator valve and drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the cooling fan and shroud as an assembly.
  4. Remove the accessory drive belt.
  5. Remove the water pump pulley from the hub.
  6. Disconnect the hoses from the water pump.

Fig. 6: Water pump mounting bolt locations
  1. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
  2. Loosen the clamp at the water pump end of the bypass hose. Slip the bypass hose from the water pump while removing the pump from the engine. Discard the gasket.
To install:
  1. Clean all gasket mating surfaces.
  2. Guide the water pump and new gasket into position while connecting the bypass hose to the pump. Tighten the water pump bolts to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm).
  3. Install the bypass hose clamp.
  4. Spin the water pump to ensure the pump impeller does not rub against the timing chain cover.
  5. Coat a new O-ring with coolant and install it to the heater hose coolant return tube.
  6. Install the coolant return tube to the engine. Ensure the slot in the tube bracket is bottomed to the mounting bolt. This will properly position the return tube.
  7. Connect the radiator hose to the water pump.
  8. Connect the heater hose and clamp to the return tube.
  9. Install the water pump pulley and tighten the bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).

1997 Dakota v8 water pump replacement steps


Hope this helps!

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.



f90cf3b.gif
Heater hose pipe O-ring (arrow): twist gently when removing or installing; check condition; lubricate with coolant before installing

CAUTION Always wear safety glasses when servicing contact tension clamps.


  1. Always use a new gasket when installing the water pump. Clean mating surfaces thoroughly before installation.
  2. This would be a good time to replace radiator hoses. At least, inspect them carefully for aging or other damage.
  3. If the heater hose pipe was removed, use thread sealant or equivalent on the pipe threads (if threaded), or lubricate any O-rings with coolant before installing.
  4. Check the accessory belt routing against the plate in the engine compartment before starting engine.
  5. Allow the engine to reach operating temperature and check for leaks.

3.9L, 4.7L, 5.2L, 5.9L, 8.0L Gasoline Engines
  1. Carry out the "Common Steps" above.
  2. Remove the upper radiator hose.
  3. Remove the fan and shroud assembly.
  4. On engines except 4.7L, remove the four water pump pulley bolts and remove the pulley.
  5. Remove the heater hose pipe mounting bolt, if fitted.
  6. On engines except 4.7L, loosen the bypass hose clamp at the water pump.
  7. Remove the seven water pump mounting bolts and, on the 4.7L, one nut.

WARNING Bolts may be of different lengths. Be sure to note their locations.


To install:
  1. Reverse the removal procedure.
  2. The 8.0L engine uses an O-ring to seal. Use a new one and lubricate it with petroleum jelly before installation of the pump. Also, use sealant on the threads of the heater hose pipe, position the pipe as shown before installing the pump and tighten the nut to 12 ft. lbs. (16 Nm).
  3. On pushrod engines, connect the bypass hose to the pump while installing it.
  4. Tighten the bolts to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm) on pushrod engines, 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm) on the 4.7L engine.
  5. Spin pump to ensure the impeller is not rubbing against the timing chain case.
  6. When installing the heater hose pipe, ensure that the slot in the pipe bracket is bearing against the mounting bolt. This will hold the pipe in as far as possible to prevent leaks.
  7. Tighten pulley bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm) on V-6 and V-8, 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm) on the V-10.
