How to find the diagram for a water pump gasket on a 1996 ford winstar with a 3.8 engine?
I think you mean an exploded view? You may be able to get one through the parts department of a ford dealership. You may find one in the library if they have a manual there. www.Alldata.com can provide one at a cost.

The head gasket is a seal between the upper and lower halves of an engine. The seal runs between several channels within the engine block that segment water and oil... If you have blown a head gasket, your engine is either blowing white smoke from the exaust - meaning the seal has allowed water and oil to mix; Or you are venting either water, or oil, from the actual seal (gasket) - In any event…
This is usually caused by the engine over heating causing the gasket to give away to the pressure of the water, forcing the water into the section containing the oil. Should you look at the dip stick, it will either be brown or have many bubbles on the surface. The head gasket needs to be replaced. The other cause could be that the engine block has a crack in it, need a new engine
What could it be in a 1994 subaru legacy that water blast out of the water reservior when engine revved?
A cracked radiator will NOT put water in the engine and make the oil milky. A bad head gasket WILL put water in the engine and make the oil look milky. That does not neccessarily mean you have a bad engine. Have someone fix or replace the radiator and replace the head gasket. It could be a good engine for a long time yet
theres a very good chance that the engine has a blown head gasket. what is happening is the water cooling the engine is escaping past the head gasket & into the engine, mixing with the oil making it milky coloured. the water is also escaping into the cylinders, making the steam come from your exhaust, you may also have trouble when turning the engine over, with water building up in the cylinders when cooling down.
Sounds like water pump needs replacing The main pulley is near the top of the engine. The water pump is toward the front of the engine. It is possible that water appears to be leaking from this pulley, but there is a manifold gasket right above it. Double check to find exactly where the water is exiting the engine block. My first hunch is a leaking gasket.
Ford mondeost220 over heated then blew cold air when I put water in it came straight through underneath to the right side of the engine any ideas whether it could possibly be head gasket or water pump?
Can a head gasket blow even if your car never got hot also can spraying your engine with water hurt your engine?
Yes, a head gasket can blow and cause the engine to overheat. Happens all the time. Yes spaying cold water on an engine that is at full operating temperature can possibly do some damage. Not likely, but possible. Spraying water on a warm or cold engine will do not damage to the engine. It may however damage parts such as the alternator, or some sensors. Never use a high pressure spray.
