Thanks Chad. The water is coming out of the hole on the front of the oil pump that oils the timing chain, that’s the only place I see it coming from. It’s squirting out pretty bad just turning the engine over.

okay , if it is squirting ,yes the only water coming from there is a cracked block, it must have got really hot ,i hate to tell you not what u want to hear

I did not know there were freeze plugs behind timining cover. The picture you show isn’t like my 2.7. Is there a freeze plug behind the oil pump?

you are right that was for a 5.7 liter ,pulled up wrong one, i m working on another post he has truck 5.7 liter

so no freeze plugs on yours that i can see

sorry my bad ,long day :)

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
