Re: water pump on escort
If the engines are ZetecDOHC 16v, I would suggest that you source a new water pump for your engine. To change the water pump is not very easy for the average DIY. I would entrust the job to a vehciletechnician and get the drive belts changed at the same time as the anti freeze would have contaminated your drive belts.

this is the water pump assembly you need to tear down the front of your engine mark all pullies and belts to reassemble in order use a sharpy to number them, then you will have access to the pump, you will have to drain the coolant and disconnect the hoses from there it should be easy for you to manage the repair
Sounds like your petrol pump may be on the fritz. They are pretty easy to replace, although, if you have 0 experience on fixing cars, i would best take it to a mechanic. By "pumping" gas, you are pumping the petrol into the cylinders, where as the pump should do that automatically, after you pump it, it makes a steady flow to the cylinders. If you are planing to fix it yourself, make sure you have only 1 quater or less in your fuel tank, as it will make a mess.
If you can see this water dripping from the lower crankshaft pulley, and you are filling water, then this water pump probably leaks from the weep hole, the weep hole is designed in all water pumps to tell you that the water seal has failed. The water pump is timing belt driven, to change it will require removal and installation of the timing belt, for a procedure of this, go to my profile page and look at my tips and tricks for timing belt replacement 1.9L. While the timing belt is removed, the water pump has two hose connections and four blots that hold it in place, the four bolts are the easy part, the two hose connections can be difficult. Make sure to use a gasket sealer when installing a new pump. Hope this helps, let me know.
dear friend:i think we should start with pressure testing the system for water leaks,if there is leaks you will loose pressure,if you reach working temp feel the top and bottom radiator hose,they should be the same temp,if not then the thermostat is faulty,if you got poor circulation then it can be the waterpump or the radiator is blocked,check airflow threw the radiator,check radiatorcap pressure,
Not a problem, the fuel pump is in the rear passenger side (under the back seat) pop out the seat held by too clips onto the the rear seat, take out the sound deadining pad, undo the big black cover and get water pump pliers too undo the white cover lift out the pump, you should check the fuel gauge to see how much fuel is in the tank, no need to drain as long as you dont want petrol on your hands.
When you take the pump out, the most common problem is the thin Brown wire snaps off the sender unit, it buzzes but wont start. It should be around £30 for a good second hand pump.
cooling system is a simple pump and radiator to cool if water is not pumping or circulating check for rad blockage thermostat stuck closed. need to know more...... how bad did you overheat it??? blown headgasket??
