Water pump


you must remove fan shroud. theres a tool for the clutch fan but you can use a impact hammer and a 12" bit (left hand thread) loosen pully bolts before removing belt (belt will hold pully from turning) then remove 4 or 6 bolts holding pump on (look at new pump for bolt amounts not sure) clean serfices and install)

Need to know how to put a serpentine belt on a 1995 302 ford motor


Below the altenator is a tensioning pully, insert a 3/8" ratchet or breaker bar in the square hole on the tensioner and release the tension on the surpentine belt and remove the belt. Route the new surpentine belt in place up to the altenator and take the tension off the tensioner and put the belt over the altenator pully. Double check to make sure the belt is riding correctly on all the pullies before starting. Crank the engine over several times before starting to seat the belt. f78f558.jpg

1995 Ford Windstar transmission is slipping and shifting hard


bad news, 1995 ford windstar transmissions fail extremely frequently at about 60000 miles, I would not waste money in a transmission flush as it will most likely not correct the problem. It is a dsign flaw, the transmission cannot handle the torque of the 3,8L engine and the 700Lbs of added weight of the windstar body.
I'd just use it untill it fails...
