SOURCE: 1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Water Pump Housing removal

I am sure the leak is the water pump based on years of Escort work, The ZX2 is equipped with a 2.0L DOHC V-Tech engine. The water pump is on the front (rt side of car) of the engine block, visible with the hood up. NAPA autoparts replacement instructions are to loosen the belt drive pulley from the pump BEFORE removing the serpentine belt. Once the four bolts are loose, take the belt off (good time to replace?) remove bolts and old water pump (four more bolts)- it will be tight, but it comes out- clean gasket area and install new gasket and pump in reverse order. That includes putting the pulley on and hand tightening the bolts, put on the belt, finish tightening the bolts to the pulley.

SOURCE: how do change a water pump on 1998 ford escort

You have too remove the alternator, tensioner pulley, and probably would help to disconnect the power steering hose too give you a little more room too work. Now getting the pulley off the water pump is always the pain, see if you can loosen those bolts before removing the tension on the serpentine belt. If not try using a rubber oil filter remover to hold while you loosen the bolts.

I have just had my carby professionally rebuild,how do I reinstall a ford econovan carby 1999 model


Ah 'carby', Australian for 'carburettor'.

Water doesn't come out of anywhere on a carb, so I reckon it will be one of the heater hoses, either perished or split. Best was to find it is use a lead lamp and a small mirror. Hopefully you wont have to remove the carb to replace it. Might even just be a loose hose clamp. ford econovan cooling system Bing images

Water pump 1998 explorer sohc


I don't see how someone on the internet or
even a repair shop could answer that

If it leaks coolant or makes a noise, then common
sense,you change it

If you want to do all your own work & it has 200,000
miles on it,then I would change it,if it were mine & I
was going 3,300 miles to Boston.

Changed water pump on my 1998 ford ranger now it's


if its leaking out of the vent tube hole,, you got a bad pump, if its leaking around the edges of the pump you didn't use sealer at the gasket and that will need to be addressed,, remove the pump and use gasket sealer then tighten down the gasket ( water pump bolts ) in succession , it keeps the gasket from getting a wave in it,

I have recently over heated my ford econovan. After allowing it to cool i added water back into the radiator and noticed it was coming out on the ground as quickly as i poured it into the radiator. on...


what this means is that you have a rusted out cylinder block core plug, some people call them freeze plugs (which is not what they are), since if one goes they are all ready to go it is best to replace them all, the problem is that it sounds like the one that went on your truck may be the one behind the trans bell housing, this of course means the trans must come out to replace the rear core plugs
