Asked by Oct 02, 2013 at 05:12 PM about the 2006 Buick Lucerne CXL V8

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car is overheating. We attempted to change the water pump pulleys (they melted), but as soon as we turned the car back on, the pulley's and belt warped again. We are now trying to change the water pump but need some guidance!

See this video on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGL_qM3VJOc They also have a few more that might give you more ideas. Just search for "Northstar water pump".

How about the ENTIRE assembly? That video showed the water pump piece itself. The part we have includes the pulley at the other end.

You are luck to have the newer design (Not). Here are videos for a 2006. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nusRv0aWw7w http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvGp-RCNBCY

Luck is RIGHT! There's not enough room to work without twisting your body in awkward ways and we have to take half the car apart for a water pump. Thank you for sharing the videos. Erica, I'll be emailing you.

Correction,.... should have been "lucky". Sorry to hear it's slow going. Hope all goes well. Take your time,... you don't want to be in there again.
