Why does Water pump keep failing?

HI Clark
You didnt mention type of car and engine but I will try for to look at the alignment of the pulley on the waterpump and relation to the other pulleys it could be there is a stress factor put on these water pumps to fail as you say. One must find the cause,, would you have the orignal pump to match it up with the rebuilt ones? you may endup going to a dealer and borrow to match up with the ones they keep putting on from the same supplier.Make sure you have no vibration coming from all these pulleys they seem of replaced something is out of tune to blow those seals in a water pump they are doubled sealed.Or are you getting new ones?..... missing info no problem I wouldve love to tackle this problem when I was in the trade.;)

98 ford exploer running hot

Always replace the thermostat when changing water pump. The age of the vehicle warrants replacing upper and lower radiator hoses too.

Sounds like the engine oil passages are plugged with sludge, you either have to dismantle the engine and have it boiled out or you can try getting another used one. By now you have damaged the engines main and crankshaft bearings running with no oil pressure destroys them very quickly.

When you replaced the thermostat did you replace it with a lesser degree than called for? If your vehicle runs that high constantly then I would suggest it.

Can you find "hot" spots on your engine with a thermometer? Or is the termperature pretty constant. When you check the radiator make sure you check all the way across to make sure that you check for a partial radiator blockage. Because that is one possible cause.

Most parts from the parts store are made in mexico, reconditioned from old pumps that were sent back.

Replace the pump with a FACTORY part. As for your poor running engine, I would recommend replacing the spark plug wires and spark plugs. If it is equipped with a distributor; replace the cap and rotor. These parts are high-voltage related and will not work properly if they are damaged and moisture is present.

How do i prime the oil pump in a 99 e250 5.4L

Oil pump is self priming. You do not need to prime it. If not showing oil pressure, the sensor is probably defective. Make sure oil level is not low. If the vehicles water temperature gauge shows normal when running then oil pump is working fine. If it goes to the overheat mark then you may have defective oil pump, which is rare. Most temperature gauges go past the middle when you first start up but then drop back to normal once the engine thermostat opens up. Hope this helps.

Engine light comes on and wont go faster than 90 kms per hour back speed off and light gos off

the engine light is a run safe feature. it could meen low oil, fuel blockage, low coolant and, if diesel, water in fuel filter.
Check all levels, and if ok, it colud be something more serious like oil pump, water pump or oil filter.
