    disconnect batteries,drain radiator,remove the fan shroud ,remove the fan clutch and pulley,remove the belt,remove the heater hose on top of the water pump,remove the radiator hose connected to the water pump remove water pump retaining bolts .once you have the pump off you will want to remove the thermostat from the water pump .I would recommend replacing the thermostat and gasket also while you have it off.Install new gasket on water pump and themostat and reverse removal instructions.Top off coolant and check for leaks.

How do you put transmission fluid in a 2001 Ford Excursion

first read your owners manual so you know exactly what type of transmission fluid and how to read the dipstick. Make sure you know the difference between the oil dipstick and the transmission dipstick. Buy a long narrow funnel at the parts store where you buy the fluid. It will have to fit into the transmission dipstick tube. Add fluid through the transmission dipstick tube. This is not something that must be done often, unless you have a serious leak somewhere. You are at 10 years, if your tranny is slipping, be prepared to get it rebuilt.

My 2001 Excursion Diesel is leaking oil from the oil pan gasket. Can I just drop the pan to replace the gasket (with a slight forward maneuvering) or do I have to drop the cross bar directly beneath the...

If it is in fact the oil pan gasket that is leaking, then you would first need to drain out the oil through the oil drain plug and recycle the oil. Then you can remove the oil pan and replace the old gasket with a new one, refill with the proper amount of oil. Then you can run the car and see if it still leaks.

Ford excursion limited 7.3

a 7.3 with 97K miles is just getting started on it's lifespan. These motors will last for sometimes 300K miles with regular service. They do have a 100K powertrain warranty so you're close to out of warranty on this one. The transmissions and torque converters were sometimes weak, but if you treat them right, they'll last.
Personally, I've got a ;'01 Limited since 2003 and I've got close to 180,000 miles on it... I've done regular service on it, brakes, changed the tranny out, have a banks kit on it, and it runs like there's no tomorrow.
Great rig, highly recommend a diesel.
Even tho ford isn't making the Excursion any more, the Super Duty is around to stay for a while so there'll always be service parts for the Excursion...
Hope that helps in your decision... KEN
