Here we have the dramatic conclusion of the Tahoe 5.7L water pump replacement series. There are some important steps here that need to be followed in order to call this job done. Bleeding the cooling system is at the top of that list. As I said in the video I feel this is a job that’s well within the reach of the DIY. So break out the spanners and get to work.

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 Membership at EricTheCarGuy.com. More information can be found here.

  1. 13:00 I like to take a picture with my phone before I take the belt off. It’s an easy way to give me a diagram of how it goes back on.

  2. Is there a bigger or smaller pulleys to spin water pump faster for a 1998 gmc k1500 for better cooling ?

  3. The green coolant is fine ,just never mix it with GM Dex .It will turn to sap . GM Vortec (R Code) have an intake gasket unlike the(K) , dex-cool at 70% will help with lube it needs to keep from leaking . Best thing is that they leak outward most of the time .

  4. Thanks for this vid! Love how the gasket starts to slide at 2:31… Might want to let it set up a bit longer and use a bit less spray or maybe put the bolts thru to keep it stationary.
    Smart move to remove the idler pulley.
    I'm about to do this on a 99 Yukon.

  5. Thank you for a great video and instructions. You helped show and explain things that others do not do to make things understandable and prepare for the unexpected.

  6. Its hard to believe you did not replace the bypass hose to the intake or the 90 degree heater hose, those look old and are known to split from heat. A little anti-seize on the clutch threads does wonders to prevent rust. I almost fell over when Eric got out a pipe wrench in part-1

  7. Touching things on the inside of people's cars with oily gloves on is not okay. Not cool sir. But other than that this is a great video. Thank you for the info 👍

  8. Better to use green coolant in these 5.7l Chevy vortec since they like to blow intake gaskets with the dexcool

  9. When doing my own I always paint the new pump the day before, can't stand having a rusty water pump on an otherwise all painted engine. I also would have replaced those heater hoses simply to save having to replace them a year or 2 later when it's harder to do. But for a customer you can't go to the extra time and expense unless the hoses really are bad or they ask you to paint it (and I never had that happen). 😉 Great video Eric, two thumbs up.

  10. hey Eric I'm doing the same job on a 5.0 305 v8 was woundering if on the bolts to water pump would it material what type of rtv silicone you use I don't have the blue type I have some black and the red high temp rtv would the red be fine for that to use
