Default Water Pump on 1991 Toyota Cressida

I told a friend I'd see if I could replace the water pump on her 1991 Toyota Cressida...do I have to mess with the timing belt to get to it? If anyone has done work on a similar car, any advice would be great. (Also, if it's just the gasket, and the pump is fine, would you guys advise replacing the pump anyway, or not? She found a new pump for $40.)

Hi

I've not done one, but the info I have says 1.7 hours.
cressida_wp.jpg
I don't see a timing belt involved here. Likely needing to remove the rad.
I don't know what the engine code is, 5M-GE, 7M-GE or 3Y-EC & 4Y-EC

They all have about the same description for replacement. The accessory belts are a pain to deal with!

Quote:
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Drain the coolant into a suitable container.
3. Remove the radiator inlet hose.
4. Remove the number 2 fan shroud.
5. Remove the 4 bolts from the fluid coupling (fan clutch) flange.
6. Loosen the fan belt adjusting bolt and nut of the power steering pump and alternator. Remove the alternator pivot nut and adjusting bar.
7. Remove the fan shroud mounting nuts.
8. Remove the four bolts, fan clutch, water pump pulley and fan shroud.
9. Remove the fan from the fan clutch.
10. Remove the air pipe assembly.
11. Remove the 8 bolts and 2 nuts from the water pump and remove the water pump and gasket. To install:
12. Install the water pump along with a new gasket and the retaining bolts and nuts. Tighten the bolts and nuts to 13 ft. lbs. (18 N.m).
13. Install the air pipe assembly.
14. Install the four bolts, fan clutch, water pump pulley and fan shroud.
15. Install the fan shroud mounting nuts.
16. Install the alternator pivot nut and adjusting bar. Tighten the drive belt adjusting bolt and nut.
17. Install the 4 bolts to the fluid coupling (fan clutch) flange.
18. Install the number 2 fan shroud.
19. Install the radiator inlet hose.
20. Close the engine and radiator drain. Refill the coolant system.
21. Start the engine and check for any leaks.
This is for the 7M-GE, I can post the others, let me know.

I would change the pump even if it's only the gasket leaking, you wouldn't want to do this all again!
