5 times on a waterpump?? Sounds like the surface is uneven somewhere?

No its a Ford Motorcraft Part

No matter where the part came from, I have to believe the problem is with the block or the installation process. There's no way you could end up with that many pumps.

It was the radiator cap, I took the ford part back and got my money back and went to napa and got some helpful info from them finally some one gave me an answer that makes sense. Thanks for all the feedback guys. The radiator cap was the original one from the factory and it was the only part in the system that was not replaced guess im getting old and forgetting all the tricks LOL.:thumbsup:

How does a bad radiator cap look like leaking water pump?
