Thanks! That's exactly what I was doing! I thought there might be something else but I guess that's it!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If you take off the Passenger Wheel, and the Splash Guard immediately behind the Wheel, you will see the Main Camshaft Pulley. Look just up and North East of the Camshaft Pulley and you will see the Water Pump Pulley.

Internet Picture for Reference (This engine is NOT my engine):

Thanks for the great pic and the description of how to see the pump. I read that there were 3 10mm bolts on the pulley and 6 on the pump. I peeked in just the right direction and sway where it is. I'd have to use your directions to reach it if it needs to be replaced.

So far, I've got the fan motor replaced and tested. It comes on instantly when you switch the A/C on. It also turns on when the coolant temperature hits 210F. Yeah, should be 226F but there's room for variations in the car and in thermometers. I had tried the test Richpin mentions in his video, disconnecting the electrical connector from the ECTS to make the fan come on - and it didn't come on! So, the long route of warming up the motor, checking the coolant temp with a thermometer and watching the fan.

Now, the temp gauges reads ~1/2 most of the time. The fan kicks in when the gauge reaches ~5/8 and off again when it gets back to 1/2. Looks like I'm done with the engine cooling - and cabin heating - for now as both seem good. Next up, clean the throttle body, replace its gasket, and replace valve cover gasket!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
