Question Asked: Coolant leaking top front of engine...water pump?
August 26, 2011, 06:20 PM
Im figuring this is the water pump leaking, as I smell coolant when I get out of my car, and its pooling coolant on what Im assuming is the water pump. I just bought this vehicle yesterday for a great bargain as this Explorer is in GREAT condition! How much approximately, does it cost to replace the water pump?
Car Review: 2003 Ford Escape

Bought my 2003,6 cyl. 4WD Escape, in 2004, with 74,000 miles on it. Whoever owned this car before I did drove a ton in one year! This car is great! One recall on it, something with the ABS Unit catching on fire, minor wear and tear, great 4WD.
I had a major problem with the running lights and interior lights shutting off while driving, headlights remained on, found out it was a relay that had filled with water, because the water drain had clogged up, backflowing the water behind the fuse box, filling the relay with water. When it overheated, the lights went out! $230.00 repair, not bad, better than a $300.00 ticket!
Car Review: 1997 Ford Explorer

I purchased my 1997 Ford Explorer XLT, V8, AWD, Loaded with sunroof/moonroof, Leather seats, 6 disk CD changer, etc, etc on August 25, 2011. I got this truck at a steal from a guy my wife works with. No rust, no scratches on any of the interior and did I mention only 115,000 miles on it!!! The only problem Ive noticed my second day owning it is radiator fluid leaking on top of the engine, assuming its the water pump, but at the price I paid, the extra 300-500 bucks is worth it!!!
