Question about 1999 Ford Explorer
I am trying to replace the water pump on my 2001 5.0 explorer, but do not know the steps - what are they?
Ok, the timing covers have to come off, which means taking off accessory drive belt, possibly alt. ps pump, ac,etc. timing covers need to come off along with the crankshaft pulley. if it is a DOHC there will be 2 gears on the top, with a tensioner and a pulley for the waterpump, the crank shaft will have a toothed gear also. the gears need to be aligned properly or engine damage will ensue if it is a interference engine. 6 to 10 bolts for the waterpump, gaskter etc. your best bet is to buy a hanyes manual at a local parts store for around 20 bucks. it is a complicated repair if you dont know what your doing. if i knew what year the engine is and if it is SOHC or DOHC and if it has a chain or belt i could help you more.. good luck
