Exclamation 2001 7.3 fan trouble after belt went

I've been hearing some squeaking and i was going to get my belt replaced this weekend but it decided to go last night, i found out when i started my truck this morning. Any my brother picked up a belt and we were replacing it and i noticed i had no coolant and when i started my truck there was a loud squeeze and i shut it off. The fan was ****eyed and where it connects to the motor, i think water pump,i could move it. Im a senior in highschool and cant afford to have it fixed at a garage. Is this going to be expensive? Whats it going to take to fix?

and with the coolant...i put a gallon in and it wasnt even showing...how much do i put in? I bought the coolant from ford that you have to mix 50/50

any input would get greatly appreicated

If you're waterpump is shot, you need a new one, Riffraff has them for $150ish. As far as coolant... I would at least try to figure out where it went. If it's leaking out of the pump, ok, replace the pump. If it's leaking somewhere else.... could be a big issue. Sorry I can't help more.

The pulley wiggles, does that mean the water pump is bad or can the pulley that connects to the fan be replaced?

Rebuilt water pumps can be had for less from auto parts stores but reliability is sometimes questionionable. I would check prices and go from there if money is tight
