My luck has changed from bad to worse!! While pulling into my drive this afternoon it felt like I just lost my power steering pump, a quick check under the hood revealed that I was leaking coolant all over the place and it must have gotten the belt slick enough to slip. I thought I may have blown a hose or something but after pulling my trucl into my shop I crawled underneath to see where the leak was and couldn't see anything. I sqeezed the lower radiator hose a couple times and the coolant started flowing from just behind the harmonic balancer.............Anyone know what is going on?

My wife has drill weekend, so I have all the stuff I need but I haven't had the chance to do anything because of the little ones. My dad is going to stop by this afternoon and watch the kids for me so hopefully I will be able to get it fix before the morning.
Do ya have everything , the waterpump , new thermostat, rental wrenches, it's also a good time to change the top rad hose to the one that goes around the belt . If you need anything just call ( I'll pm my cell #)I will be at church this morning till about noon then I'll be fart'n around the shop probably the rest of the day.
I forgot to pick up a new thermostat......I'll have the wife bring one home when she gets done on the base. I may have to call ya a little later if I get in trouble, done a lot of wrenching on mustangs but never a big diesel.
