Re: How to change the water pump on a ford escort 1.3gle...
Let me know if you cannot see diagrams(happens sometimes) or if you have any questions
Just to make sure. I assume that you are seeing coolant leakage from around the water pump assembly.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Place fender covers on the aprons.
Drain the cooling system.
Remove the accessory drive belts.
Remove the timing belt cover.
Use a wrench on the crankshaft pulley to rotate the engine so No. 1 piston is on TDC of the compression stroke.
Turn the engine only in the direction of normal rotation. Backward rotation will cause the timing belt to slip or lose teeth.
Loosen the belt tensioner attaching bolts, then secure the tensioner over as far as possible.

remove it from, or allow it to change its position on, the crankshaft
not rotate the engine with the timing belt removed or serious engine
damage could occur. The 1.3L and 1.6L engines are of the "interference
type," meaning it is possible for the valves to contact the pistons if
their reciprocation is not carefully timed and controlled. An engine
allowed to spin freely without the timing belt could bend valves and
scuff pistons almost instantly.
Remove the camshaft sprocket.
Remove the rear timing cover stud.
Remove the heater return tube hose connection at the water pump inlet tube.
Remove the water pump inlet tube fasteners and the inlet tube and gasket.
Unfasten the water pump to the cylinder block bolts and remove the water pump and its gasket.
Make sure the mating surfaces on the pump and the block are clean.

If you can see this water dripping from the lower crankshaft pulley, and you are filling water, then this water pump probably leaks from the weep hole, the weep hole is designed in all water pumps to tell you that the water seal has failed. The water pump is timing belt driven, to change it will require removal and installation of the timing belt, for a procedure of this, go to my profile page and look at my tips and tricks for timing belt replacement 1.9L. While the timing belt is removed, the water pump has two hose connections and four blots that hold it in place, the four bolts are the easy part, the two hose connections can be difficult. Make sure to use a gasket sealer when installing a new pump. Hope this helps, let me know.
This can be caused by not tensioning the belt corectly.When fitting a new belt you should allways replace the tensioner,and make sure the water pump pulley is in good working order.Its always wise to get your timming belt from the dealer.as others are nown to be faulty.Fit new belt follow manuel when doing so.good luck
Sounds like to me it would be your water pump before a heater core. When the water pump goes out, it stops pumping the coolant through the system which is what would cause it to still overheat even with the thermostat out. Change the water pump and you should be good. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for using FixYa!
No the timing belt does not have to be changed but you do have to remove it to get to the water pump so i would recommend that you do so and also replace the tensioner, i can't tell you a price because i don't where you are i am South Carolina and the parts alone for t-belt ,water pump and tensioner are about 150.00$ cost from Ford (list is a bit higher) and about 3.5 to 4.0 hrs labor at a shop
If the engines are ZetecDOHC 16v, I would suggest that you source a new water pump for your engine. To change the water pump is not very easy for the average DIY. I would entrust the job to a vehciletechnician and get the drive belts changed at the same time as the anti freeze would have contaminated your drive belts.
