water pump

  1. Water Pump/ Weep Hole

    My 2003 Ranger with a 3.0 L V6 is dumping coolant when idling and right after I shut it off. I think it is my water pump but I am not sure if the hole I am looking at is the weep hole. There isn't an overheating problem,yet, I drove it about 80 miles home after discovering the problem and...
  2. '99 3.0L Water pump removal

    Hi all, I replaced my DPFE sensor a couple weeks ago. WOW! What a difference. Truck would not rev above 3200 or so. Now it will go up to 5k or so. Feels like a whole new vehicle. Friday I stumbled onto the throttle cable mod. Sure enough, even better! Can't believe how well it was running. So I...

    Coolant loss - but NOT heads!

    Hi guys, I've been dealing with a major coolant loss in my 96 xlt for about a month now. I bought the truck off of craigslist about four months ago and have been upgrading stuff since then, but am at a loss as to what's going on. Recently, I put in new gaskets on the lower manifold, valve...
  4. The mysterious overheat

    Strange issue. 2003 Ranger Edge - 3.0L - 96,000 miles. Anytime the outside temp is at or below around 75 degrees, this thing never overheats. I can climb hills, do 80 up the Grapevine, sit in traffic with the A/C blowing, zero issues. However, if the outside temp rises, maybe about...

    Where are bolts for AC & Pwr steering mount bracket?

    I am replacing the water pump and read in the Haynes manual that I need to remove the bolt(s) holding the mounting bracket to move the whole assembly out of the way without removing either the AC compressor or the power steering pump. So I am looking but cannot find the correct bolt or bolts to...
  6. B3000 will only start with solenoid jumped

    I'm sorry if this is a duplicate, but I'm having trouble getting the forum to accept my post. My B3000 was cranking very reliably before I replaced the water pump. Now it will only crank by jumping the solenoid. It runs beautifully, and everything works. There is voltage at fuse #24 inside the...
  7. Coolant leak problem

    I am worried about my ranger. When it began to get warm outside the truck began to spill coolant on the ground after parking the truck after a long drive. I had to refill it often. Then it started doing it occasionally even after short drives. I discovered it was leaking from the heater core...
  8. 95 ranger 2.3L Coolant leak- I think its the metal part that fits into the water pump

    I posted this in the quick response section before I saw this section.. sorry.. help!!! I have been chasing a coolant leak for a while. About a year and a half ago my truck with just 100k on it started to run hot.. I took it to a local mechanic and he changed the water pump and the thermostat...
  9. Metal shavings in coolant?

    So I just flushed my coolant system. It really needed it, it was murky brown. When I flushed it, I found a lot of small aluminum shavings at the bottom of my flush pan. I immediately thought it was my water pump, but I want to know for sure. I have also been hearing something like a knocking...
