2000 Lincoln Navigator Problems

What are possible causes for this? The water pump is on the front and it doesn't seem to be leaking from there. How hard a fix might thus be?
2000 Lincoln Navigator Recalls
Ford has recalled 2000 Expedition, F150, and Lincoln Navigator models because of a possible defect in the speed control deactivation switch. Some switches could leak. Because the switch has electrical power at all times, the leaking fluid could ignite and cause a fire, even when the vehicle is unattended. Dealers will install a jumper harness to prevent a fire in the event of a leak. If a leak is found during inspection, the switch will be replaced.
Ford has recalled certain 2000-2001 Excursion, Expedition, F150, F250, F350, Focus, Taurus, Mercury Sable, Lincoln Continental, Navigator, and Town Car vehicles due to a defect in the wiper motor gear case. The wiper motor could overheat and malfunction, which may cause the wipers to stop working as designed. Dealers will inspect the wiper motor and replace the gear case cover.
2000 Lincoln Navigator Reviews
We brought this truck used with 65,000 miles on it. It has been one of the best trucks I have owned, I know have 210,000 miles and still going strong. I replaced the air shocks with coils, had a tune up at 150,000 miles. And had to replace the starter but the truck still looks good and drives great....
We got the Navigator new. It is a wonderful truck but I'd say over the past couple of years we spent money getting few things all fixed on it. Changed four set of brakes, battery drained due of having the lights remaining on and leak in exhaust plus add we had to spend good bit on new catalytic and get emission system repairs. So far engine and tranny both have been great at 180,876 miles still...
Bought it used a few mths ago. Drove it quite a lot with no problems. Now at 185K miles, wear and tear has set in. Have found out that all parts on it are still factory. So, even though it is costing me a small fortune to replace them all (starter, flywheel, upper control arms, idler arm among a few others still needing replaced)the truck went strong without the slightest of problems.
