Question about 1992 Ford F150 SuperCab

2 Answers

Constant problem with leaks.

1992 f-150, I seem to get leaks all at the same spot. I've changed all the top hoses, thermostat, and water pump. Seems like after about 2 weeks or so I get a leak in the same spot. Its always around the big hose to the top of the pump, hard to tell exactly as theres to much **** there to see exactly. Any other ideas?

    Its not the cap, its around the water pump, even drunk I know that one. I apprecite the input though, everything is useful.

    I might have to try that. Bad thing is, I'm not sure i could see the leak as it seams to be behind every hose and wire possible up there. I'm not a mechanic in the least bit, just to broke to goto the shop. I'm having this bad feeling of a head gasket or something and I'm just gonna have to blow the truck up LOL

Replaced thermostat water pump overheating seems to have no backflow thru top radaitor hose


The engine gets cool water from the lower hose. And dumps hot water back in the radiator thru the top hose.

The water won't come your the engine until the thermostat reaches the appropriate temp.

After the thermostat opens and the water level drops in the radiator you can fill the radiator.

Coolant leak, unknown origin


Most water pumps have a small hole on lower side of W/pump, little below the shaft! If coming from there the seal is going-replace water pump with brand new one/ not a rebuilt one, I' ve had bad results W/rebuilts

thermostat in backwards.the part that senses temperature change isn't exposed to the hot coolant inside the engine. , or coolent passages clogged, here is what sometimes will happen:

They can and will totally clog up, try to flush the system if not too far clogged.

Coolant leak


It is possible that the housing for the water pump has corroded and the new(hopefully) gasket is unable to seal off properly. Water pumps have a bleed hole underneath before the bearing so that in the event of the seal leaking the water will run out and not affect the bearing. May be the housing was not cleaned properly and a piece of old gasket is preventing the new gasket for fitting properly. If you have doubts that he did the job go back and front him to get the job done properly. Remember that in future the replaced part is yours and you have rights in law to take the old part home with you to prove it was changed.

Anti freeze leak I hear hissing sound under neath fuel injection system


could be leaking at the top radiator hose going to thermostat, that is a hard spot to see leak remove the air filter and air filter housing look below throttle body you see thermostat housing, check for leaks around thermostat housing gasket and check for leak at the top radiator hose going to radiator and thermostat.if all is good check all radiator hoses for leaks check small coolant lines going to throttle body for leaks and check make sure bleeder screw on thermostat housing not loose it will leak also check around radiator and water pump heater bypass metal lines for leaks.

Changed water pump,thermostat, top rad. hose. still leaking leaking antifreeze from what looks like below thermostat housing. have noticed super small hose from water pump to engine. looks hard to replace....


That is called the bypass hose. It could be leaking but I'd take a closer look at the thermostat housing. If you replaced only the thermostat and not the housing, the housing may be leaking. It's a common source of coolant leaks.

No heat---replace thermostat and gasket,(it is stuck open)
Water pump--- is leaking,replace,why do you care where it comes from,it is the hole by the bearings

Ford Escape 2003. Engine suddenly overheat.


Engine over heating can be caused by a number of things. When you say the water pump and radiator appear to be ok I am also guessing that you checked the coolant level to make sure it is normal.

If the level is low then you obviously have a leak. Insufficient coolant circulating will not cool the motor properly because it won't be able to draw enough heat out. If the level is normal then you need to check the thermostat to make sure it is opening properly. To do this, run the motor to temperature and check the top and bottom hoses. They should both be hot and firrm once the thermostat opens meaning the circulation loop is operating properly. If the top is hot and firm and the bottom is cold/soft or collapsed then the thermostat isn't opening.

If the thermostat is operating properly then you ned to look for some other obstruction or cause for coolant loss. Check the head/intake gaskets, hose connections, hoses, over flow tank, radiator fins, radiator side tanks etc..

Good luck.

Car running hot


Sounds to me like you have put the thermostat in upside down.It still could be the pump,may not have the pumping ability it had when it was put in but i would check the thermostat first.
