2003 Nissan 2.5L Water Pump Replacement -Fixing it Forward

Added by AutomotiveUploads
In many ways you could call this Part 3 of the Nissan Timing Chain Series. Here's a link to those 2 videos to get you caught up.

Just for the heck of it, here's a link to the Full/Extended Version of the Timing Chain Replacement Video: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-web/13-premium-content-videos/1500-nissan-2-5l-timing-chain-replacement-full-extended-version-fixing-it-forward

So in this episode we not only replace the water pump, but also the valve cover. As you'll see in the video, things don't quite go as planned. So please watch the entire video before you start firing off comments. You might end up looking like an idiot if you don't.

This video also has an extended version with 5 extra minutes of footage: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/exclusive-videos/73-exclusive-videos/1510-2003-nissan-2-5l-water-pump-replacement-fixing-it-forward-extended-exclusive-video
