Sentra 97 Water Pump?

Hi there

I have a "Nissan Sentra GXE 1997 (Auto Trans)"

I started having this weird noise from the engine

similar to this video here "Bad Water Pump vs Good Water Pump"

And my dad checked it out said it also was a Bad Water Pump. I also have a little leak on the side like under the belts. I thought it was a Oil Leak at 1st but now i think it's a Coolant Leak.

Now that i believe its a bad water pump.

Should I get only a new Water Pump? or should I get some other things..

Also I hear that when you try to replace it you should go ahead and replace the other stuff, like the belts or something.

I was looking at these Water Pumps here.

Water Pump's

Universal - Proform Water Pump

So what do you guys think? Really I was going to just go down to the local AutoZone or something but either way just wanted to know if I only need a Water Pump.

Also if anyone has reinstalled a water pump could you please provide some instructions for reinstalling on a "Nissan Sentra GXE 1997" I actually already kinda know where it is. just want some Instructions if possible.

go get a new pump, thermostat and a tube of import gray sealant.

I've always said - beware of the guy with primer on his car!
