1998 Chevy Tahoe 5.7L Water Pump Replacement (Part 1) -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
This video is part 1 of the replacement of a water pump on a 5.7L Chevy V8.
This video will apply to many other makes that use this engine such as GMC
as the engine in this video has been used for many years by GM. I feel
it's a job that just about any DIY could do with the right set of tools.
The video also covers the diagnosis of the faulty water pump as well as
purging the air out of the cooling system when you're done. One last
thing. I know the Check engine light is on, it's a catalytic converter
This video can be seen in it's entirety with bonus footage such as how I
dealt with the speed clip that wouldn't come out as well as the thermostat
replacement. You can see this footage by signing up for a Premium
