This is a simple process. First you will need to remove the fan. You will need the fan and clutch tool to remove the flange nut of the fan (remember the threads are reversed). once the fan is removed fish it out of the fan shroud. You can now remove th shroud to gain better access.
2) Remove the fan belt. You need to take a 1/2 drive ratchet, place it in the tensioner and turn to loose them belt. Remove belt.
3) Remove the bolts on the fan pulley - Note it is best to loosen the bolts prior to removing the belt.
4) Remove the 4 bolts holding the pump in place. DO NOT PRY OR HIT ON PUMP.
5) take 2 - 6mm bolts and thread them into the holes of the pump and slowly tighten the bolts. This will pump the pump out.
6) The pump is now removed. Clean all surfaces.
7) Take and coat the O-Ring on the water pump with some vasoline grease.
8) Place pump in hole and slightly tap into place.
9) Insert bolts and tighen down evenly.
10) Reverse removal procedure. Install coolant and run. Make sure to check for air bubbles in system.
No, just common knowledge and the right tool's.
Just the water pump gasket and a jug of antifreeze.
Hello, The factory manual says to remove the belt alternetor and radiator then remove the pump and replace with the new one. Then reverse the process.
I had a garage do mine several years ago and it was $300 cdn, parts, labour and taxes.
Front of engine.
Check or better , change the thermostat.
I was looking at fordparts.com and it shows a water pump gasket
Blow up, like break, or fall off. Most likely the bearing is shot. Not an expensive part to change. You have to replace the water pump with a rebuilt one.
Water pump is at the front of the engine. Remove the fan, electric and clutch if equipped and shroud. You should have enough room this way without removing the rad. Drain the rad. and get started.
Remove the rad. cover, belt, fan, and there's the water pump.
If water is dripping out of the heater core it is about to go.
The wipers motor has a tendency to become filled with water and short out the internal computer board causing it to malfunction.
According to the 2000 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Guide : It came from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilled water and GREEN color engine antifreeze meeting Ford specification ( ESE-M97B44-A )
According to the 1998 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Guide , the engine cooling system capacity is 15.0 liters ( 15.8 quarts ) and it came from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water
Probably about 2 or 99 cv took 2.
According to the 1999 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Guide : It came from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilled water and Ford Premium Engine Coolant ( GREEN in color , meeting Ford specification ESE-M97B44-A )
For a 1995 Ford Crown Victoria : It came from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilled water and GREEN color antifreeze ( meeting Ford specification ESE-M97B44-A ) Ford states not to exceed 60 % antifreeze in the mixture
Look for a leaking hose, water pump, or raditor find the leak and fix it.
Most likely a blown head gasket, and hopefully only that.
On a 4.6L engine, I have never seen a water hose under the intake. Anybody else?
I have a 1999 Crown Victoria too, except mine get water in them too somehow. I went to the store and bought a cleaner and they look okay, not perfectly clear though. You could also try buying new ones, they're about $60 each.
About 1 hours labor, plus the water pump and any coolant needed. That is of course there are no problems.
Have you had the rad. checked ?
Unless there is an access panel in the trunk, which is doubtful, you will have to remove the fuel tank from the vehicle to access the pump.
It's only condensation. Once it is burned off or leaks out, that is it. This is normal.
