2003 VUE 2.2L
2003 Vue water pump replacement
It took about 4 hours. I took my time. most of the time was cleaning and prep for installing the new parts. Upon inspecting the old pump, the leak I had was probably around the o-ring, it was compressed and I could see coolant seepage past the o-ring.
The instructions have you remove the exhaust manifold and then loosen the thermostat /distribution housing. I did neither. Thought it was a tight fit, I was able to remove the interconnect tube as per the video.
I used this video as a guide. The only difference is my vue does have that block heater thing.
The biggest problem I had was getting the pumps shaft aligned so the sprocket bolt holes would line up with the shaft.
I used a 4 inch long wire (cut clothes hanger) with a loop on one end so it couldn't fall into the crankcase.
The whole process was tedious, but I didn't run into any problems.
