The above diagrams and advice are off base. The Excape 3.0 Duratech V6 has the water pump on the back (driver side) of the engine, in the center of the "V" and driven by a belt from the pulley on the back side of the overhead camshaft. Unlike earlier duratech V6s, which had a tensioner, the belt has enough give to remove/install with the pulleys in place. I have used tousleyfordparts.com where entering the VIN pulls up the correct part.
Also, the front, main, serpentine belt is a piece of cake once you remove the protective plactic cover from underneith the engine. The tensioner releases counterclockwise, and the belt circles only the alternator pulley, A/C compressor pulley, and vibration damper on the crankshaft.

SOURCE: Water Pump Drive Belt

there is no water pump drive belt...there's a "Serpentine" belt that powers ALL the accessories and cooling...If you've never done this before, take it to a mechanic (NOT THE DEALER) and have it done ($75)
Good Luck

SOURCE: Ford Escape 2003. Engine suddenly overheat.

Engine over heating can be caused by a number of things. When you say the water pump and radiator appear to be ok I am also guessing that you checked the coolant level to make sure it is normal.

If the level is low then you obviously have a leak. Insufficient coolant circulating will not cool the motor properly because it won't be able to draw enough heat out. If the level is normal then you need to check the thermostat to make sure it is opening properly. To do this, run the motor to temperature and check the top and bottom hoses. They should both be hot and firrm once the thermostat opens meaning the circulation loop is operating properly. If the top is hot and firm and the bottom is cold/soft or collapsed then the thermostat isn't opening.

If the thermostat is operating properly then you ned to look for some other obstruction or cause for coolant loss. Check the head/intake gaskets, hose connections, hoses, over flow tank, radiator fins, radiator side tanks etc..

Good luck.

How do I replace thermostat in a 2010 ford escape xlt


On the top of your radiator is a big hose. Follow that house to the top of the motor. Where that house attaches to the motor, is the thermostat housing. Housing is usually held on with 2 bolts, remove housing and you'll find the thermostat.

There are two belts on Ford Escape 3.0 V6. The serpentine belt is the drive-line belt and the other belt in question is the water pump belt. You should be able to find this at any auto parts store or on eBay.

My 2002 ford escape have 120500 miles, do i have to replace the timing chain?


The 4-cylinder 2.0-liter 16-valves DOHC 127-hp Ford Zetec engine used a timing belt that needs replacement at 120k. After 2005 both, the 2.3-liter 4-cylinder and the 3.0-liter V6 engines have a maintenance-free timing chain.

I would recommend changing the water pump while you are at it.

The 2.0 timing belt labor is 4 hours and the water pump is 10 hours in addition. Not a fun job.

Here's the process:

Double check this by using a small container and catching some of what is dripping...If it is not green then it's your air conditioner condensation escaping as it's supposed to. If green then something important is leaking and you need to look further.

Water Pump Drive Belt


a bunch of idiots - the guy is right there are 2 belts - one serpentine and one just for the water pump - you will need to remove the water pump and belt at the same time - if the belt is frayed then you can bet the water pump is close to shot too

I was told by the repair shop that my water pump belt needs to be replaced. I bought the belt, read my haynes manual, which said to turn the tensioner clockwise. The problem is I see a way to do this. I...


3.0 Escapes DO NOT use a tensioner for the water pump belt. If you get a clear look at your water pump, you'll see the pump itself is bolted to a pump housing. The pump housing is bolt to the block using three bolts which differ from the actual water pump bolts. Remove the three bolts from the pump housing to relieve tension on the belt. The cooling system will remain sealed. Change the belt and reinstall the bolts. (The three bolts use washers)
