Water Pump

Recommended Posts

I have a 53 plated 1.4 Semi Auto Fiesta and I think the water pump is knackered, I know that back in 2003, a batch of this model did have defective water pumps and I think mine is giving up the ghost. Do I need to lift the engine or can this be replaced whilst in situ. any advice please

Normally they are doable with the engine in place (you would'nt hear of a garage taking the engine out for the water pump) I would recommend doing the cam belt at the same time though purely for piece of mind.

Thanks for the info, Had the cam belt change last year when the head gasket went

hi, i think it is worth it to change the water pump along with the cam belt each time, but that is my opinion. what signs are you getting that make you think its the water pump which needs replacing?
