If the engines are Zetec DOHC 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 vehcile technician and get the drive belts changed at the same time as the anti freeze would have contaminated your drive belts.

Engine hard start in cold weather

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.

I have m reg ford escort water is dripping under the car beside the water pump i think when i top up the reservoir. Do you have any suggestions please the temp stays normal and water pump not sqealing?

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,

N Reg 1995 BMW 316I. Suspected fuel pump problem

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.

I hope this helps.
