Water Pump recommendations

Hey guys, been out of it a while.

Had my 97 out towing this weekend and today I noticed a coolant leak from the water pump.

Suggestions? Motorcraft ones are $210. After market are under $100.

Re: Water Pump recommendations

If you can get an motorcraft one for $210,I'd go that route.

Had mine go out the other week and was around $400-$450 for a motorcraft one. But that's because I had to have it then and couldn't wait for shipping. I also didn't want to change it out again for a long time which is another reason I went with motorcraft.

I want to say there is one made with a coolant filter on it. Might be worth looking into.

Re: Water Pump recommendations

I bought a diesel site one (not the one with the filter). It has a lifetime warranty. It was $115. But in the other hand my oem pump went 210k miles.

Re: Water Pump recommendations

I think that they all are a crap shoot. My original one lasted until 115K and replaced by a new one from NAPA which lasted 10K. They replaced that one and I am crossing my fingers on the e one I have on now.

Re: Water Pump recommendations

I got the Airtex from Rockauto three years ago and it’s been flawless. I read somewhere they’re the supplier for Motorcraft but I don’t remember where I saw that.

Re: Water Pump recommendations

I had a napa pump lifetime warranty but they didn't want to warranty since we don't buy from them anymore. So I was telling my O'Reillys parts guy and they said they would warranty it for me. So I am running one from oriellys. I would rather have the lifetime warranty then the motorcraft name. But that just me.

Re: Water Pump recommendations

My OEM water pump went last Christmas at 215,000 miles. Replaced it with a CarQuest (Hecho in China) model; so far, so good. If you can get a Motorcraft for ~$200, IMO, that would be the way to go. I've heard the DieselSite units are top-shelf and as good or better than Motorcraft but I don't have one so I can't say. I priced them from their site and they are not inexpensive by any means.
