Make sure you really have all the bolts out, sometimes there are some that are somewhat hidden.

If all the bolys are out, then the gasket adhesive has it stuck to the engine.
take a bead blow hammer and give it a few whacks.

Most likely heat and corrosion has welded it to the engine. Take a small rubber mallet and strike it all around the pumps outter edges. It should come off.

You can drill a hole in the bolt then use and EZ out hoping that works. If not have to drill the bolt out and re-thread the block. Hope the EZ out works for you.

How to replace driver door on 2000 mustang

It should be relatively uncomplicated, the hinges bolt directly to the pillar of the car, and the wiring harness should have a disconnect under the dash. Support the door, unbolt the four to eight bolts that secure the door, unplug the harness and remove the door.

We have a 1986 Ford Mustang that has a frozen bolt at the water pump. What tool do we need to get to remove this bolt without damaging the motor?

try getting it hot with a torch. if that dont do it then you will have to do what it takes including breaking the bolt, prying off the water pump and drilling out the broken piece. a trick i use on broken bolts that stick out even a little is i weld a nut on it and back it out with a wrench. it works 99.9% of the time.

Leaking coolant

i believe this part you are referring to is the intake manifold. it seems to be a big problem with the older ford mustangs. make sure before you spend the big bucks on it that it's not just the water pump gasket.

Fuel Pump 2000 Ford Mustang

remove it from what? You should have dropped the gas tank - it's removed from the tank after it's lowered from the car. Two straps, the filler neck (which is a little tricky - make sure the tank is supported by a jack).
