Thanks for the speedy response! I'm pretty good with tools and working on my own vehicles, but since I haven't quite worked on my truck yet, it'll be a new experience. It is, in fact, the 4.7L and I'm kinda' glad that this is a "common" problem, in a way. Do you have any ideas on where the coolant come from that sprayed everywhere? That's bothering me. Also, is there anything else I should be concerned about when the water pump took a dump? Also, about how long should replacing a water pump take? Just as a guesstimate?
