Re: 2004 focus SE leaking coolant?
Yeah, i placed a white carboard box down, and it is mainly a clear fluid, with a tinge of orange, which makes me think coolant, combined with the low fluid levels, it makes sense that it is the water pump. Looks like i'm going to the shop, Usually i like to do things at home, but i can't lower the engine @ home, so time to pony up some bucks and get it fixed. Anybody in the future reading this, NTB quoted me about 400 bucks for the water pump, labor and a few extra things i need done like an oil change, tire rotation etc etc etc.
Since I'm @ 77K miles and the recommendation is 80K, i'm just replacing the pump instead of replacing only the gasket.
And I believe the thermostat is on the drivers side of the engine block, at least that is where it is in my wife's car, which has the duratec, and mine seems to be configured the same way.
Thanks for all your help
