Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
There seems to be a leak on the backside of the water pump on my 97 chevy s-10 with a 3.0 v-6. I was wondering if there is a gasket on the backside that may be leaking? Also, how hard is it to replace the water pump itself?
You will need to replace the water pump itself and its pretty easy to do. take of the top half of the fan shroud, pop off the hoses to the water pump and the take out the bolts to the water pump

Have you tried an 18" crescent wrench and just use a hammer to knock the fan clutch loose?

To get the fan off, you need a special tool called a half h tool, they are not common however i know that many places rent the tool. I myself got the rental for free so i cant imagine it would cost that much. The half H tool holds the bolts in place so you have leverage to then twist the fan off.
