| | 1998 Mustang V6 Water Pump Replacement
Alright here's the deal, first time ever owning a Mustang so any help is greatly appreciated. Just bought a 98 convertible with high miles, previous owner did not take care of the coolant system. Flushed it and the water pump went out. Can't afford the factory so picked one up from Autozone. The solid bypass hose pushes in and on the factory seat against and o-ring at a ridge. The Autozone pump does not have the ridge but came with the o-ring. Is it the wrong pump? Is there a new application for installing the bypass line? Help me out please, love the car and want to start driving it.
