No need to pull the engine off. if you ar sure that there are no more bolts holding the water pump, tap it lightly with a hammer in the separation position . it is just stuck with the gasket. im sure it will come off the engine.

Water pump


To remove water pump loosen serpentine belt with a 3/8 breaker bar and set out of the way remove the 4 nuts on the pump housing and the 3 bracket bolts along with the upper and lower radiator hoses the small heater hose. The lower nuts can be reached thru the wheel well. Remove the allen bolts that hold the pump in the housing clean gasket area and replace. You may need to double nut a couple of the housing studs and remove for room on the housing

NOTE: All water pumps have a sealed bearing integral with the water pump shaft. The bearing requires no lubrication. A bleed hole in the pump housing allows water that may leak past the seal to be thrown out by the slinger. This is not a lubrication hole. If the pump is damaged and requires repair, replace it with a new pump or a rebuilt one.

How to change the water pump on a ford escort 1.3gle 1986 model


  1. Let me know if you cannot see diagrams(happens sometimes) or if you have any questions
Just to make sure. I assume that you are seeing coolant leakage from around the water pump assembly.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Place fender covers on the aprons.
  3. Drain the cooling system.
  4. Remove the accessory drive belts.
  5. Remove the timing belt cover.
  6. Use a wrench on the crankshaft pulley to rotate the engine so No. 1 piston is on TDC of the compression stroke.
Turn the engine only in the direction of normal rotation. Backward rotation will cause the timing belt to slip or lose teeth.
  1. Loosen the belt tensioner attaching bolts, then secure the tensioner over as far as possible.
  2. Pull the belt from the camshaft, tensioner, and water pump sprocket. Do not remove it from, or allow it to change its position on, the crankshaft sprocket.
WARNINGDo not rotate the engine with the timing belt removed or serious engine damage could occur. The 1.3L and 1.6L engines are of the "interference type," meaning it is possible for the valves to contact the pistons if their reciprocation is not carefully timed and controlled. An engine allowed to spin freely without the timing belt could bend valves and scuff pistons almost instantly.
  1. Remove the camshaft sprocket.
  2. Remove the rear timing cover stud.
  3. Remove the heater return tube hose connection at the water pump inlet tube.
  4. Remove the water pump inlet tube fasteners and the inlet tube and gasket.
  5. Unfasten the water pump to the cylinder block bolts and remove the water pump and its gasket.

  1. Make sure the mating surfaces on the pump and the block are clean.
  2. Using a new gasket and sealer, install the water pump. Tighten the bolts to 30-40 ft. lbs. (40-55 Nm) on 1981-87 models, or to 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm) on 1988-90 models. Make sure the pump impeller is able to turn freely.
  3. Install the water pump inlet tube and the inlet tube gasket and fasteners.
  4. Install the rear timing cover stud. Install the heater return tube hose connection at the water pump inlet tube.
  5. Install the camshaft sprocket.
  6. Install the belt from the camshaft, timing belt tensioner, and water pump sprocket.

  1. Tighten the belt tensioner attaching bolts, then secure the tensioner over as far as possible.

  3. Install the accessory drive belts.
  4. Refill the cooling system and reconnect the negative battery cable.
