I/m guessing you haven't seen this 44 page thread; Water pump failure leads to dead engine............If you look online, reports of failure are scattered all over the place. I actually recently found out there is a lawsuit against Ford for this right now.
Ford Water Pump Class-Action Lawsuit Says Engines Fail
No I did not. I don't own a Ford, and by the looks of it, not planning on any time soon.
I never removed alternator, so I never actually observed the weep hole in action. That said, look at the attached pics for the passage direction.Thanks for the tips and pics! Can you try to point out the weephole? I know its behind the alternator and I can see where everything is wet, I'm just looking to see where the hole is and where it would start.
Hi Steve. Hope you caught it in time. I moved your thread to this this one that I found with the Forum's 'Search' feature. You may also want to check out; Water pump replacement parts list and/or How to: - 2013 Explorer 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 Water Pump and Timing Set ReplacementHi everyone,
I'm new to the forums. My wife's 15 Explorer is loosing coolant from the weep hole. I'm probably going to start tearing down tomorrow. I was wondering if anyone has a how-to put together for this yet?
Also, I've been searching around for HOURS trying to figure out if there's anything I should be swapping out while I'm in there. I see that the oil pump is in that area, but I really don't find any type of known-proclivity for oil pump failures in this vehicle.
