Hey guys I have a coolant leak coming from the water pump area :cry: and I was wondering how much it will cost to get a new water pump and to get the cooling system pressure tested I have an EL Falcon if that helps.

Cheers for the help guys :D

I'd expect around 180ish

85+ for the pump, 30 for the inhibitor and the rest labour

go to ford urself and get a new pump, tell em repco can do it for 90bux inc. and ford should match it.

take it to ur local mechanic and get him to install it, this way u know ur gonna get a good pump instead of some cheap chinese s**t

Hey man if i was u i would get that fixed ASAP!!!! About 3 weeks ago i was travelling from gero to perth (4 hr trip not speeding) and the bearings collapsed, pushing the fan straight through my radiator. Half way to perth and in the middle of NOWHERE lol. Any ways i got my old mnan to bring da car trailer down for me and we got it home. I got the water pump from coventries with a trade discount and i got it down from 94 dollars to 65 so depending on wether or not u have an account there will depend on how much it costs. Good luck :lol:

Determine where the leak is from. It could simply be from the O-Ring at the back. In which case its a $2 part.

It could be leaking from the housing gasket. Easily replace gasket.

Or if it could be leaking from the drain hole at the front bottom of the housing, if the inner seal has broken.

If its the pump itself, buy genuine Ford only. The are the one part Ford did design well, and are worth every cent over the aftermarket stuff.

usually though when the gasket goes, its safe to say the pump should be replaced.
i paid 52 for my water pump, plus 22 for the pulley (they don't come with one).
i could have pressed mine off, but i couldn't be fooked.
ford sell the o'ring for $2.50, but one does come with the pump.

just have a real good look and make sure the leak isn't coming from the metal heater pipe hose, as thats where one of mine leaked from.
