SOURCE: How much is it going to cost to have a water pump

it depends on certain mechanic shops. of course the dealer is always way higher. estimated 1 1/2 to 2 hours to put on depending if you have to pull off the timing belt. cost will be estimated about 250.00. call around some mechanic shops and see. some will be different than others.

SOURCE: fuel pump replacement on 2005 ford focus

Are you sure that you need to replace the pump? I drive a 54 plate mk2 1.6 zetec that wouldn't always start and I was told it was the fuel pump in the tank but because the fault was intermitant I didn't have it fitted and found out that the car didn't start because the fuel lift pump wasn't priming the system before starting. I found that there was a faulty connection on the relay for the pump that is in the compartment under the glove compartment.

SOURCE: changing water pump 2000 ford focus

Changing a water pump is pretty basic. Since the coolant system is a closed system you only need to be concerned with that system. For instance you since you have to mess around with it anyway you might as well change the thermostat and flush the coolant system. Make sure your radiator hoses are in good shape and that's about it.
If you have basic mechanical skills and tools you will have no problem replacing a water pump.


As far as information with the actual replacement there are a number of experts here including myself that could explain how to do it.
However no matter how good our explanations are it just can't compare to a good repair manual.
A repair manual for your car at Auto Zone would likely cost between $12 and $15. It is a great investment if you are going to keep your car for any length of time. When you sell, it shows the buyer you took the time to maintain and repair it right.
I personally like Haynes Manuals.
I hope this helps.

No heat after replacing a water pump on a 2008 Ford Focus


You may still have air in the coolant system. Bleed the coolant and watch to make sure it dont overheat. Also turn the heater to full and set it on high while adding and bleeding the coolant system.

Does anyone know when the water pump usally needs changing on ford focus 1.4 2003


Water pumps generally do not need routine replacement. A good sign is leakage og coolant. Any detrimental wear such as a bearing will cause leakage of the seal.If it is a precautionary thought, Change it around 75,ooo miles. FGood luck, Ned

I replace water pump and i time it just by the manual but wont start on ford focus 2003 2.0L


The design of the ford focus is pretty bad. If you didnt do the timing perfect the pistons will hit the valves. This is called a zero clearence engine. You need to check compression in the cylinders and make sure they are in spec.

Water pump


About 8, if you are methodical you should be ok. You will probably have to remove the cam belt. If you do you need a tool to hold the cams-the tool is basically a flat plate +/- 400 mm long and about 6mm thick which slots into the rear of the cams when engine is in the correct position and on tdc.
