Broke one of the water pump housing bolts off in the block. As if that wasn't enough it has an area in front of and beneath the place where the bolt broke that is at least twice as crowded as any I've ever seen therefore based on the degree of difficultty involved in accessing the bolt just when removing with extensions and wobbles etc getting an extractor properly threaded would seem against the laws of physics

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle ever overheated? And when was it last serviced?

Seriously? That's why i was working on ir

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

2000 Ford F-150 super 4.2 v6

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Did u read or not

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Read above if you want my money I'm not typing it again

No problem

Can that motor possibly be disconnected and tilted up maybe?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Just tryna avoid the full removal

If you unbolt the motor mount on that side you could probably jack up that side a few inches.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
