Is a water pump covered under the Ford powertrain warranty?

My Ford has been overheating for the past few days. I checked the radiator for cracks, and it seems fine, so I’m thinking the water pump has given out. Will the Ford powertrain warranty cover a faulty water pump?

Ford’s powertrain warranty will cover your water pump if it malfunctioned due to a manufacturer defect and you’re still within the 5-year, 60,000-mile warranty period.
Most water pumps last at least 80,000 miles, so the fact that your water pump failed before then — assuming you’re still under warranty — means that a manufacturer defect is highly likely. The only way to know for sure is to take your car to the dealership and let the mechanics assess the damage.
Depending on the model, replacing a water pump can cost anywhere from $400 to $800 including parts and labor, so it’s not exactly a cheap repair.
