Per Repair Pal:

The average cost for a Ford F-150 water pump replacement is between $255 and $352.
Labor costs are estimated between $137 and $174 while parts are priced between $118 and $178. Estimate does not include taxes and fees.

Did they replace belts, pulleys, hoses etc???

Interesting link, $361 to $436 to replace a water pump on a 6.7 Cummins Ram, 2 bolts and $60 part????

I never said that... I recently had to have the passenger side hub/bearing replaced.

I can say that my 98 F150 (140k), 05 Super Duty (170k) and my current 12 Super Duty (160K) with a combined 470,000 miles I never had to have a water pump changed. My '92 Chevy 350 was the last truck I had to have a water pump changed and a dealer tech did the work.

I have a 2011 Ford F-250 but only have 34000 miles on it, I would love a new truck but can't justify the cost. And DW will not let me buy one.[emoticon] If you have the money I would say go for it you only live once.


In my mind, you do have a new truck, or almost new.

The water pump on my Eco is INSIDE the timing chain cover, so the whole front end will have to come off for that to be changed..



Mitch,
Your water pump on your 3.5 Ecoboost is actually mounted externally on the timing change cover.

I guess I'm different. I use local shops for regular maint. but for something big. I take it to the ford store. They DO have the right parts, They ARE trained by Ford. they HAVE seen it before, and In truth they are not much more expensive than the local shop where you see vehicles sitting there for months. I can't have my vehicle sit on a fly by night lot for months. I need it fixed right, and fixed quick. A friend of mine is even now taking his truck back to a local shop to get the same fixed AGAIN.
Plus, and this is important. The Ford store warranties their repairs, and their parts for life. So if it messes up a gain. they fix it free.


Thirty years ago my father bought a Crown Victoria and took it to the dealer when the AC quit and got one of those warranted for life repairs. Six months later it had the exact same symptoms but the dealer insisted that the cause was different and therefore not warranted. Some thing again just a few more months later. After that no more trips to the dealer. It is still very rare for me to take any of my vehicles to a dealer if I am paying the bill.


Things change over 30 years. It has already paid off for me. got a 35 hundred dollar trans rebuild, for no charge. The manufacturers stand behind their vehicles better today. they have to, To stay competitive.


And BTW. the cost difference between the dealer, and the local shop, is very narrow, and n truth. you get what you pay for.

Really ? Hard to believe.

I am not quite as old as some of you, but I will continue to change my own oil and filter as requires until I just can't do it anymore ! It takes me a couple of hours from start to finish, but I figure I save between $20-$50 each time.

I just changed one a couple months back on a 13 F150 with the 5.0. $80 water pump , couple gallon of antifreeze and 45 minutes. It was still harder than a Cummins h2o pump though.

Yeah, me too. It costs me about $25 for the 3 gallons of oil and $10 for the filter, and takes about 20 minutes start to finish. Of course the Fumoto drain helps make it pretty painless and clean.
