MBE 900 COOLANT PUMP NON-EGR ENGINE

The coolant pump is driven by a belt with automatic belt tensioner. ‪

Coolant Pump Removal

Remove the coolant pump as follows: ‪

PERSONAL INJURY

To avoid injury from scalding, drain the radiator when the engine and coolant are cool.

  1. Drain the coolant from the engine.
  2. Remove the six bolts attaching the fan shroud to the radiator. See Figure 42456 .

    Note: Remove the bolts indicated by the arrows. See Figure 42456 .

    1. Fan Shroud ‪

    3. Radiator ‪

    2. Fan Blade ‪

    Fan Shroud Mounting Bolts

  3. Remove the fan and fan shroud from the vehicle.
    1. Remove the fan blade.
    2. Remove the fan shroud.
    3. Remove the fan hub.

      EYE INJURY

      To avoid injury from flying parts when working with components under spring tension, wear adequate eye protection (face shield or safety goggles).

  4. Release the tension on the poly-V belt and set the belt aside.

    Note: On 6-cylinder engines, there are two thermostats. On 4-cylinder engines, there is only one thermostat.

  5. Loosen the fan pulley. Keep the pulley from turning while loosening the pulley mounting bolts. See Figure 42457 for 6cylinder engines and see Figure 42458 for 4cylinder engines.

  6. Remove the fan pulley.
  7. Remove the belt tensioner.
  8. On 4-cylinder engines only, remove the mounting bracket from the coolant pump and the charge air pipes.
  9. Disconnect the electrical connector from the coolant temperature sensor.
  10. Remove the front connector housing, front connector gasket, and coolant pump connector fitting. Discard the gasket and fitting.
  11. Disconnect the lower coolant hose and the coolant line from the coolant pump. Discard the seal rings on the coolant line banjo fitting.

    Note: Collect any coolant that runs out of the lower coolant hose or coolant pump.

  12. Remove the coolant pump from the engine. Discard the gasket.
  13. On both the coolant pump and the engine block, clean the sealing surfaces (where the gasket was attached) of any adhering gasket material.
  14. Remove the upper coolant hose inlet (thermostat housing), thermostat(s), and O-ring(s) from the coolant pump.

Coolant Pump Installation

Install the coolant pump as follows: ‪

  1. Install the upper coolant hose inlet, thermostat(s), and O-ring(s) onto the coolant pump.
  2. Install the coolant pump on the engine block, using a new gasket. Tighten the mounting bolts 25 Nm (18 lbft).

    Note: On 4-cylinder engines, secure the coolant pump with six bolts. The seventh bolt will be added when the mounting bracket is installed.

  3. Connect the lower coolant hose and the coolant line to the coolant pump. Install new seal rings on the coolant line banjo fitting.
  4. Install the front connector housing onto the coolant pump. Install a new gasket and coolant pump connector fitting. Tighten the mounting bolt attaching the front connector housing to the cylinder head 25 Nm (18 lbft).
  5. Connect the electrical connector to the coolant temperature sensor.
  6. On 4-cylinder engines only, install the mounting bracket on the coolant pump and the fastener to the charge air pipes. Tighten the mounting bolts 50 Nm (37 lbft).
  7. Install the belt tensioner.
  8. Install the fan pulley on the coolant pump. Tighten the fan pulley mounting bolts 25 Nm (18 lbft).
  9. Install the fan hub on the fan pulley.
  10. Release the belt tensioner. Route the poly-V belt round the fan pulley and restore the belt tension.
  11. Install the fan blade and fan shroud on the vehicle.
    1. Position the fan shroud on the radiator.
    2. Tighten the fan shroud mounting bolts until firm.
  12. Fill the engine with the removed coolant, and check for leaks.
