I had the system flushed out the other year due to some heating issues and the coolant, was replaced with a universal type coolant and not the "pink" stuff.
I understand to replace the water pump, it's not a big job but I heard you have to have a special tool to take off the clutch fan.
I don't have this tool, so what else can you use?
The tool I used was a 1 3/8 inch combo wrench. It's tight but it works. You also need a pin type spanner wrench to hold the pulley. Hold the spanner tight and smack the combo wrench with a dead blow mallet. The fan will break loose.
