Sounds like your A/C Compressor clutch is bad. This is the part that engages the compressor to actually create the cold air. This can be fix at any auto mechanic. Make sure you have them check just the clutch and not necessarily replace the whole compressor. It would be cheaper to just replace the clutch in most cases.

The smoke is probably coming from the Serpentine belt. Flip the belt and see if it is now starting to be SHINY. The belt is going faster than the Compressor has the ability to turn. More than likely, the Compressor is partially seized and needs to be replaced.

Water Pump leaks from the front end of the Wagon.


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  1. Determine the Reason for Water Pump Failure
    • 1 Repair a water pump by checking your car for a failure in the bearings. You can test for bearing failure by seeing if there is any play in the shaft that is connected to the electrical fan blades, as well as the drive pulley to the pump itself.
    • 2 If you notice any free play in the shaft or the pulley, you will need to take the pump apart and replace the bearings.


    • 3 Determine if the water pump failure is due to a leak in the casing. Examine the water pump housing for leaking or water stains in the drainage hole next to the pulley.
    • 4 If water is dripping from this hole, then the seals inside the pump need to replaced in order to repair the pump.
    Remove the Water Pump for Repair
    • 5 Allow the engine to cool completely before removing any part of the cooling system. Never open a radiator cap or plug while the engine is still warm.
    • 6 Disconnect the car battery. This will prevent the electrical fan from turning on while you are under the hood.
    • 7 Drain the radiator of all fluid and disconnect the radiator hoses. Collect the fluid with a plastic container and keep it in a safe place until you are ready to put it back into the radiator.
    • 8 Remove the fan assembly. This will include the shroud, the fan and the fan belt. Disconnect the electrical leads for the fan.
    • 9 Remove the pulley for the fan belt as well in order to have access to the water pump.
    • 10 Use a socket set to remove the water pump from its engine mount.
    • 11 Open the housing for the water pump and replace the seals or bearing as necessary. Some auto parts stores carry repair kits that have both the seals and bearings for specific types of water pumps.
    • 12 Reassemble the cooling system by replacing the water pump, pulley, fan belt, fan assembly and radiator hoses. Refill the radiator with the fluid.
    • 13 Start the engine to see if the water pump repair was successful. Check for leaks before you take the car out on the road.

  • Place the drain pan under the radiator drain plug, open the plug and allow it to drain. Close the plug. Loosen the four nuts on the water pump pulley but do not remove them yet. Loosen the adjusting bolts in the alternator and the power steering pump with a wrench, push them away from the belts and remove the belts.
  • 2Remove the bolts securing the fan shroud to the radiator support using a 10 mm socket. Remove the four nuts on the water pump pulley, then remove the fan and shroud as an assembly. Remove the bolts in the crankshaft pulley using a socket. Loosen and remove the crankshaft bolt using a socket.

    • 3

  • Remove the top radiator hose. Extract all the 10 mm bolts securing the top and bottom timing covers and remove the covers.
  • 4Install the crankshaft bolt temporarily. Use a socket on the bolt and turn the crankshaft clockwise until the mark on the crankshaft sprocket aligns with the timing mark on the block at the 12 o'clock position. Look at the camshaft sprockets and make sure the left sprocket has the "I" facing straight up and the right sprocket has the "E" facing up. At the same time, notice that there is a line on each sprocket adjacent to each mark--make sure they line up with the notch on the cylinder head at 12 o'clock. This allows for perfect alignment. If they do not come close to aligning, rotate the crankshaft one more time and they will align.
  • 5Loosen the tensioner bolt and push the tensioner away from the belt. Loosely tighten the bolt to maintain position. Remove the belt.
  • 6Install the new belt starting on the right side away from the tensioner. Keep all the tension on the right side. Loosen the tensioner bolt and allow it to apply tension on the belt. Do not tighten the bolt yet. Rotate the engine two turns clockwise and re-align the timing marks. Tighten the tensioner bolt to 35 foot-pounds.
  • 7Install the timing belt covers. Remove the crankshaft bolt and install the crankshaft pulley. Reinstall the bolt and tighten. Install the radiator shroud and fan as an assembly. Place the fan on the water pump pulley, install the four nuts loosely, install the bolts in the fan shroud and tighten.
  • 8Install the belts around the crank pulley, water pump pulley and alternator and pull the alternator up to tension the belt and tighten the bolts using a socket. Tighten the water pump pulley nuts using a wrench.
  • 9Install the belt on the power steering pump, pull the pump out to tension the belt and tighten the bolts. Install the upper radiator hose. Fill the radiator with antifreeze

    My husband's '83 F250 overheats on and off going


    Some thing too check:
    Make sure coolant level is up to line and clean (not dirty, do to clogged radiator, may need to be flushed or replaced).
    Make sure air flow through the out side of radiator is clear (dirt, leaves, ect..) .
    Make sure fan is working properly equip t (is not running too slow). Or Manual (belt driven) fan clutch is working properly, not loose or spinning too freely?
    Check for broken or cracked fan blades itself.
    Check radiator cap, (no gasket tears).
    Could be thermostat going bad ?
    Could be coolant temperature Relay or sensor/switch (from computer) going bad?
    Check radiator hose(s) (too soft, may collapse)?
    In some rare cases:
    Timing could be off.
    Could be water pump.
    Could be blown head gasket(s).
    Could have cracked head(s).
    ECT..............Hope this was some help???

    Check coolant reservoir level, check cooling fan if working, check if no leaks on the water pump...If engine newly installed, chances are drive belts are not installed properly.

    Truk problem


    The 4.6/5.4 motors are bad about blown head gaskets. Check the oil and make sure it is not turning milky. Do a compression check, if all is ok, then remove the radiator cap, and make sure there is coolant flowing while engine is running (still cold ofcourse). If it is not flowing, water pump could be bad, or the radiator could be clogged up. Put cap back on, and let idle until it's up to running temp. The cooling fan should turn on. If it doesn't then you either have a bad fan or fan relay. If it does, and begins to over heat, your thermostat is probably stuck closed.

    INSTALLATION
    1. Reverse procedure to install. Tighten water pump retaining bolts to 12-18 ft. lbs.
    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.
