Drain the cooling system.

Remove or disconnect the following:

Oxygen Sensor (O 2 S) electrical connector

Exhaust manifold heat shield

Coolant inlet housing bolt through the exhaust manifold

Exhaust manifold brace-to-manifold bolt

Manifold-to-exhaust pipe studs

Coolant inlet housing-to-water pump cover bolt

Exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold by pulling it downward

Coolant inlet pipe from the oil pan

Brake vacuum pipe from the camshaft housing

Exhaust manifold from the cylinder head

Heater hose from the heater outlet pipe

Timing chain cover and tensioner

Water pump cover-to-engine bolts

3 water pump-to-timing chain housing nuts

Water pump and cover assembly

Water pump cover from the pump

To install:

Install or connect the following:
