To change the water pump you need to remove the serpentine belt, remove the pulley from the water pump, rotate the water pump within the housing and replace it. Reinstall, check for leaks.

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.

Engine warning light 2004 focus temperature rising


change your thermostat, and your temperature sensor. The sensors can have a tiny crack in them and cause a lot of problems. Once this is done you should notice a difference. Special note, check to ake sure your fan is coming on, and that your water pump is good. Remember if you change your water pump, you must change your timing belt. If you don't you will be replacing them both in under 6 months. Also make sure your coolant is still good.
