If you are referring to the semi-rectangular shaped opening just to thecrightvof the piston, the answer is yes. Actually it should be filled with coolant or whatever there is/was in the radiator. There should not be any motor oil in that passage or any passages around the cylinders. The oil would mean a problem. The water is fine.

Whats place of water jacket


The water jacket is just a name for the coolant inside the engine. It is the metal of the block surrounding the coolant.


26063781-v2hn1he4tapx4zekfu2mgcdc-4-0.jpeg The photo shows an engine block. The 4 bigger holes are - obviously- where the pistons fit. The smaller holes lead into the water jacket'. The coolant is held between the outer wall of the engine block and the inner wall. This area between them is known as the 'water jacket'.

The coolant circulates through the water jacket and into the radiator via the top radiator hose. As it cools it goes downwards in the radiator and then back into the engine block via the bottom radiator hose

Why would my engine block be spewing water out under neath next to the oil filter


Hello,

On an engine block there are 'Freeze plugs'. The reason for freeze plugs is to allow for expansion (E.G.--when water freezes it expands). If water does get cold enough or does not have enough antifreeze in the system the water will expand and 'pop' a freeze plug to prevent the engine block or heads from cracking. However--these plugs can fail (not cold related) causing a leak in the cooling system. Thus water circulates through the block and heads to provide cooling (water pump-radiator-heater core). Also--water pumps when they go bad have a hole that 'pops' and leaks to let you know the water pump needs to be replaced. Therefore--Location is key.

I hope this helps.

Water in oil


Water in oil is usually caused by a cracked engine block. This is a serious problem which could have been caused by the water freezing inside the engine. Water freezing in the engine could be caused by insufficient anti-freeze in the water. Of course the other possible cause of finding water in the oil could be by a defect in the metal structure of the engine block. Either way....that indication usually points to a worthless engine.

Water going into engine block


Do you mean it runs back out again on the block? Or inside the rubber hose? Please post more detail about where the water reappears

The thermostat is likley stuck open. that means that you are trying to warm the water in the engine block and the radiator also. With the thermostat closed before it allows the water in the block to heat up. When it reaches the desired temp for it to open it then will allow the water from the radiator to flow to the block thus regulating the temp in the block.

How to replace the water pump on a 1992 geo tracker 1.6 liter engine


Water Pump - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
During these procedures, identify all components removed from the engine so that they may be reinstalled in their original positions. If discarding the old components so that new components can be installed, identifying the old items is not necessary.


1.3L and 1.6L Engines

  1. Remove the timing belt cover, timing belt, tensioner, plate and spring.
  2. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
  3. Remove the one (1.6L MFI engines) or two (1.3L and 1.6L TFI engines) small rubber seals from between the water pump and the oil pump, and the water pump and the cylinder head.
  4. If necessary for clearance, remove the oil level dipstick tube retaining bolt from the engine block and the alternator adjusting brace.

Fig. 1: Exploded view of the water pump mounting

WARNING Do NOT use a prybar between the water pump housing and the engine block to separate the two components; this can cause scratches and/or gouges, which can prevent proper sealing.
  1. Pull the water pump off of the engine block. If the water pump is difficult to remove from the engine block, use a soft-faced mallet to tap the water pump housing until it loosens.
Do not disassemble the water pump; if the water pump is damaged or defective, the entire unit is replaced.
  1. Thoroughly clean the water pump gasket mating surfaces of old gasket material and corrosion.
To install:
  1. Along with a new gasket, install the water pump on the engine block. Tighten the water pump mounting bolts to 88-115 inch lbs. (10-13 Nm).
  2. On 1.3L and TFI 1.6L engines, install two new rubber seals: one between the water pump and oil pump, and the other between the water pump and the cylinder head. The MFI 1.6L engines only use one rubber seal, located between the water and oil pumps.
  1. If removed, install the alternator adjusting brace and the oil level dipstick retaining bolt.
  2. Install the timing belt, tensioner, plate, spring and cover.

Hope helps (remember comment and rated this).

Water frozen in the engine what is the best way to get it melted when there is no opertunity to get in garage and temperature is below freezing?


I would say hairdryer or heated blanket. Where in the engine is the water frozen? Is it in the engine block or in the radiator. If in the block, then you may need new frost plugs in the engine block. If in the radiator, then you will want to run very hot water through the coolant system with the petcock unscrewed so water can drain out. Does the engine start? Can you run it so the engine heats up and melts the water?

Im replacing timing belt, accessory belts and water pump on my hyundai elantra gls 1997 sta wgn auto transmission. (1)Where is bolt to drain engine block coolant?(2)After removing front engine mountin


(1) No need to know if engine block coolant drain plug was available. Once the water pump was removed, all engine block coolant was drained. (2) After removing the three engine mounting bracket bolts, I also removed the mount bracket from the the body and made enough room to replace the timing belt easier.

Wont start now water leaks steadt stream


It is a very bad idea to put cold water in a over heated engine. If you must first start the car and add the water slowly. This will allow the water to mix in with the hot water and not shock the block. But the best thing to do is let the engine cool before adding water. If you add cold water to a hot engine with the engine off and than start it the cold water will pass into the block and could cause the iron to contact unevenly and crack. Good luck.

My 2001 lincoin ls gauge goes up to the h and then come back down


you probably have air trapped in the system. Have dealer or radiator shop bleed system.

I assume your cooling fan is working.

what engine v6 or v8?

SECTION 303-03: Engine Cooling 2001 Lincoln LS Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Engine Cooling The cooling system components include the:
  • block heater (optional)
  • cylinder head temperature sensor
  • fan blade, fan motor and fan shroud assembly
  • radiator
  • pressure relief cap
  • degas bottle
  • radiator draincock
  • water pump
  • oil cooler (optional)
  • water thermostat
The water thermostat:
  • controls the engine coolant temperature.
  • allows quicker engine warm-up.
The degas bottle:
  • provides a location for system fill.
  • contains coolant expansion and system pressurization.
  • provides air separation during operation.
  • replenishes the engine coolant to the system.
The fan blade draws air through the radiator to help cool the engine coolant.
The fan motor:
  • operates only when the engine is running.
  • will not operate when the engine is off.
The engine coolant flows:
  • from the lower radiator hose to the water pump.
  • from the water pump to the engine block and the cylinder heads.
A closed water thermostat returns the engine coolant to the water pump. An open water thermostat allows the engine coolant to flow to the radiator.
Unsatisfactory coolant materials:
  • Alcohol-type antifreeze does not provide adequate water pump lubrication.
    • has lower boiling point
    • reduced antifreeze protection
  • Alkaline brine solutions will cause serious engine cooling system damage.
The cylinder head temperature sensor provides a signal to the temperature gauge.
  • will invoke failsafe cooling.
The optional block heater:
  • electrical heating element is installed in the block cooling jacket.
    • uses a standard 110V (220V in Europe) electrical supply
  • keeps the engine coolant warm during cold weather.
The auxiliary water pump (3.9L only):
  • provides heater coolant flow boost.
  • has a secondary function of providing engine-off cooling.
