ALL ! waterpumps have a hole=1/8" approx dia. underneath the main shaft that holds the fanblade to wp. shaft. When shaft bearings start to go H2O will usually leak out of here due to the seals going too.
THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH VAPOR LOCK WHICH OCCURS WHEN THE CARB AND GAS LINE BECOME HOTTER THEN THE BOILING PT OF FUEL.If your water pump is not moving enough coolant through the engine block and then the radiator you can get VP Loc(but engine will probably be boiling over//DO NOT OPEN RADIATOR CAP AT THIS TIME=YOU WILL BE SCALDED,,let it cool down.
Remove and replace water pump(you might have to pull radiator no big a deal) to get access to all bolts holding w pump on. Back flush engine block and radiator:pull thermostat to make sure correct temp to open and not stuck.Replace parts=you are done!
NOTE: If you overheat on the freeway; turn on the car's heater(it has an extra radiator to cool down engine) and stop AC. Good luck-Fly

My ford has a leak on the right side front it smells like coolant over a two day period all the coolant leaked on the ground what do i do?


Well depending on what engine is in this vehicle, it could possibly be the water pump that is leaking or possibly a "freeze out" plug on the block. I would say it is more than likely the water pump. If you have no noticeable leaks from any of the hoses or radiator, i would definitely suspect the water pump or possibly the thermostat housing may have cracked and started to leak. My suggestion would be to look at all your hoses carefullly and then check the housings where the hoses connect to the engine block, if no signs of coolant are present, check around the water pump for noticeable coolant leaks. Hope this helps in your search for that coolant leak.

Remove water pump


Inspect/Test/Replace
  • When replacing a water pump, it is necessary to drain the cooling system.
  • Any components--belts, fan, fan shroud, shaft spacers, or viscous drive clutch--should be removed to make the pump accessible. Some pumps are attached to the cylinder block as shown below.
f11-60.jpg Installing a water pump. Courtesy of Dana Corporation.
  • Loosen and remove the bolts in a crisscross pattern from the center outward.
  • Insert a rag into the block opening and scrape off any remains of the old gasket.
WARNING When working on the coolant system (for example, replacing the water pump or thermostat), a certain amount of coolant will spill on the floor. The antifreeze in the coolant causes it to be very slippery. Always immediately wipe up any coolant that spills to reduce or eliminate the chance of injury.
  • When replacing a water pump, always follow the procedures recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Most often a coating of good waterproof sealer should be applied to a new gasket before it is placed into position on the water pump.
  • Coat the other side of the gasket with sealer, and position the pump against the engine block until it is properly seated.
  • Install the mounting bolts and tighten them evenly in a staggered sequence to the torque specifications with a torque wrench. Careless tightening could cause the pump housing to crack. Check the pump to make sure it rotates freely.
  • The water pumps on many late-model OHC engines are driven by the engine's timing belt. When replacing the water pump on these engines, always replace the timing Test/Replace

    CAUTION
    If the radiator is filled to the top with coolant and the engine is run without the radiator cap in place, the coolant will expand and spill over as the engine warms up.

    • Drain some coolant into a clean container until the coolant level is below the thermostat housing.
    • Remove the upper radiator hose connection from the thermostat housing.
    • Loosen the housing bolts and remove the housing.
    • Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If the gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably bea coolant leak after reassembly. Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
    • Compare the size of the thermostat to the old one. They are of different sizes, types, and temperature ratings.
    • The temperature rating is stamped on the sensing bulb on the bottom of the thermostat. The temperature bulb faces the block.
    • When replacing a thermostat, be sure that the thermostat fits into the groove in the block or outlet housing. If the thermostat is installed upside down, the engine will overheat.
    • Install the gasket.
    • Reinstall the thermostat housing. Refill the system and run the engine or pressure test to check for leaks.
    • When the engine has reached operating temperature make sure the thermostat opens.
    • You should be able to see coolant circulating within the radiator.
    • Another way of checking thermostat operation is to feel the top of the radiator hose or use a thermometer or multimeter with a temperature probe to confirm that the coolant is warming up.
    • If the engine is overheating, but the top hose is still cool to the touch, the thermostat is stuck closed and must be replaced.
    NOTE When a paper gasket is used and the recess is in the thermostat housing, it is a good practice to position the thermostat into the recess and glue the gasket to hold it in place. If it falls out of its groove during installation, the outlet housing can be cracked or a coolant leak will result. Before tightening the water outlet housing, try to rock it back and forth to be sure it is flush. Housings are often cracked during this step. belt.
  • Make sure all pulleys and gears are aligned according to specifications when installing the belt.

How to replace thermostat on ford f350 turbo diesel


The F-350 designation refers to a 1-ton Ford F-Series pickup truck. The thermostat in your diesel-powered Ford closes off the flow of coolant when the engine is cold, forcing the engine to heat up faster. When the coolant has reached a certain temperature, the thermostat opens up and the coolant flows as normal. A malfunctioning thermostat in your diesel may cause your engine to overheat if the thermostat gets stuck in the closed position. Installation of a new thermostat will cure the problem and get you back on the road

  • Open the hood. Allow the motor to cool off so that you will not be scalded by hot coolant. Locate the thermostat housing by tracing the upper radiator hose from the driver's side of the radiator to its termination at the thermostat housing.
  • 2 Remove the cap from the white plastic coolant bottle at the front of the engine bay. Place a drain pan under the radiator drain petcock on the lower side of the radiator on the driver's side of the truck. Remove the petcock by rotating it counterclockwise with a 19mm wrench. Replace the petcock and tighten it in a clockwise direction once the coolant has fully drained.
  • 3 Remove the clamps from both ends of the upper radiator hose with a pair of pliers. Pull the hose from the radiator and from the thermostat housing, using a twisting motion. Set the hose and clamps aside.
  • 4 Spray penetrating fluid on the three mounting bolts on the thermostat housing and let it soak in for a few minutes. Remove the three bolts with an 8mm wrench turned counterclockwise. Remove the thermostat housing from the water pump and set it and the bolts aside.
  • 5 Remove the thermostat housing from the water pump to reveal the thermostat. Carefully pry the thermostat up with a flat-blade



  • screwdriver if necessary. Clean the mating surfaces on the thermostat housing and at the water pump with a rag.
  • 6 Place a new thermostat into the water pump with the pointed end facing upward. Install a new O-ring gasket into the groove on the thermostat housing mating surface of the water pump. Position the thermostat housing back onto the water pump and tighten the three bolts with a torque wrench to 15 foot-lbs.
  • 7 Push the upper radiator hose back onto the radiator inlet and the thermostat housing until it is fully seated at both ends. Replace the hose clamps in their original position with a pair of pliers. Refill the coolant that you drained from the radiator back into the white plastic coolant tank and replace the cap. Start the engine and let it warm up. Check for leaks and retighten your connections if necessary

    How to replace water pump of 1976 ford e-250


    Hello, follow this steps to replace the water pump:

    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable,using a screwdriver to unscrew the clamp that secures the cable to the negative (-) post. Pull the cable away from the battery post.
    2. Use a jack to elevate the Ford Taurus and use jack stands to shore up the jack. Alternately, you can use tire ramps.

    3. Discharge the pressure in the radiator by unscrewing the cap. Remove the drain plug located underneath the radiator. Catch the coolant in a resealable container. Clean up any spills.

    4. Disconnect or remove the parts in front of the water pump, using an adjustable wrench. In order, this includes the right inner splash shield, lower heater hose, upper and lower tube bolts from radiator, air cleaner assembly, battery and battery tray, water pump belt, upper radiator hose, engine vent hose, trans axle 10-pin connector, radiator bypass hose and thermostat housing.

    5. Remove the water pump mounting nuts and connector hose. Unbolt the water pump from the mount. Clean off the mounting area with a shop rag.

    INSTALLING THE NEW WATER PUMP:

    1. Inspect the new water pump to ensure it's identical to the old pump and free of any metal splinters or debris.

    2. Arrange the new gasket onto the water pump. Place a bead of high temperature automotive sealant around the area where you removed the old pump and hold the gasket in place on the new water pump as you mount the entire assembly on top of the sealant.

    3. Place the new nuts into the holes in the Ford Taurus' water pump in any order for the S-type engine and in a cross configuration on the U-type engine. Using a torque wrench while the sealant is still wet to obtain a better hold, tighten to 15 foot pounds of torque.

    4. Reassemble the other engine parts in the order they came off the Ford using an adjustable wrench. Replace worn parts with new ones, as needed.

    5. Replace the drain plug and refill the radiator with the amount and type of coolant specified in your owner's manual. Remove the jack stands and release the jack or drive the ford off the tire ramps.

    6. Attach the negative battery cable to the post and tighten the screw on the clamp. Start the engine and check for leaks. Then, close the hood

    Thanks

    I have a 1965 food falcon with a mustang 302 (1978 ) v8. how do i know if it is a windsor or not?


    Well there is a 302 cleveland, they are mainly an Australian engine. Identifying one is much like telling the difference between a 351 windsor and a 351 cleveland. Based on the fact that it's from Ford's 335 engine family. 8 cap screws to hold on the valve covers, the block is longer do to the timing chain housing being integrated. The fuel pump bolts are mounted vertically, and the exhaust bolt holes are diagonal. Also, a big difference between an american 302 and an aussie 302 cleveland, is the connecting rods for the cleveland are 6.000''. Where the american 302 connecting rod length is 5.090". Also, referring to a 302 as a windsor is incorrect, it's block families name is the 90 degree v8. The only engine in that family that is properly named the windsor, is the 351 windsor. The 90 degree family also includes the 302 boss. The boss has cleveland style heads, and the block has screw in freeze plugs.
