Water pump replaced and still makes a roring sound

yes - take a rubber hose with one end against you ear and listen around the motor while it running to help pinpoint where noise is coming from-keep in mind the hose is so yu wont get yourself close to any moving parts. ps-if its the power stearing pump the sound will change as you move the steering wheel

Just swapped motors in my 2001 Mercury sable 3.0 liter.... used the old power steering pump. when starting the car it will blow powersteering fluid out the cap????

If you have only just started the engine and shut down again, it may just be the pump blowing compressed air out of the system. If it is an ongoing thing the first reaction would be that he pump is turning in the wrong direction, if that is possible. The third option is that there are two pipes incorrectly coupled somewhere.

Belt diagram for 2001 mercury sable

On the standard (non twincam) engine the belt runs on the outside of all accessories and goes inside on the idler and tensioner. The idler is the upper pulley, so loop the belt near the water pump on that one. The tensioner you know because you are rotating it with a large wrench to get the belt on. It loops towards the front of the car and the power steering pump pulley.
