     In this HD video streaming how-to rental at  Vimeo On Demand, Moses Ludel removes and installs a water pump in a 1987-2001 Jeep XJ Cherokee 4.0L engine.  The basic steps in this water pump replacement carry over to other 4.0L Jeep inline sixes, including the 1991-95 YJ Wranglers and the 1997-2006 Jeep TJ Wranglers.  Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ/WJ models also use this engine from 1992-2004. (Many steps apply to Jeep CJ models equipped with the 232 and 4.2L/258 cubic inch inline six cylinder engines.)  Included is how-to on removal and installation of the serpentine drive belt.

Water pump and serpentine belt replacement for Jeep 4.0L inline six

     Replacing both the water pump and serpentine drive belt assure reliability on the trail and in hot summer traffic with the air conditioner running. With the radiator removed, these components are readily accessible. The pump can be changed with the radiator in place, although space is crowded. If you do remove the radiator, have it cleaned and pressure tested by a professional radiator shop.
 
 
If you do want to simplify a water pump installation, consider removing the radiator first. Rent the streaming video how-to and follow the steps to a quality job! Once out, the radiator can be sublet to a local radiator shop for "boiling out" and pressure testing, your assurance that the Jeep XJ Cherokee will be reliable. These cooling systems tend to be marginal in stock design. Keeping the radiator at peak efficiency, or changing to a more efficient design, can enhance the cooling.
