The water pumps were designed to have a life expectancy of 200k miles...so basically, the engine would be worn out before the engine was..... but with all good engineering designs, the young engineers at Ford failed to remember the past...… and this is no different than GM...specially the Cadillac…… the starters 9V8 coupe) are designed for a life of 20 years or 200k miles …..but when they need to be replaced...you're pulling the engine/trans to get to the starter..


on, btw, the duratec engine was designed and built by Ford.
