The shroud keeps you from getting to it easily so... First take off the grill and then drain the radiator. Remove upper and lower radiator hoses and unbolt radiator (4 bolts). Remove radiator and you will be able to get to water pump. Unbolt fan. Unbolt water pump, make sure you get the gasket too. Apply silicone gasket stuff to new gasket and install new water pump. IMPORTANT when bolting the new water pump on make sure to not over tighten the bolts as they are cast iron and will sheer off!..i know..just make sure they are good and snug. Then just put everything back together like you took it apart and fill the radiator up witht fluid and your good to go!

The tension on a 1988 Ford F150 can be loosened by adjusting the belt tensioner. The retaining bolt is loosened, the tensioner shifted slightly, and tightened down.

Repair or replace the oil pump, or replace the valves, if the oil pump is working properly.
