6.7L PowerStroke Water Pump Replacement
- Last Modified : Mar 30, 2021
If you own one of these glorious engines changing the water pump is likely something you are going to have to accomplish sometime in it's long foreseeable lifespan. All is not lost though. The 6.7L PowerStroke is a reliable powerhouse whose water pump can be easily replaced. I admit that the first time I changed one of these, I was in for quite the surprise. There are various hoses and wire retainers that you must take off but that you should be very careful not to damage. It is almost impossible to not break some or all of them.
I usually go in depth about why components fail and corrective actions to take to avoid it in the future... but this is literally just an article about replacing the water pump of a Ford 6.7L Powerstroke. The leak location is pretty straight forward. When under the truck looking up, you generally see the coolant running out the drain on the bottom of the pump housing, or coolant leaking directly out of the shaft seal.
