I have coolant leaking from the bottom pulley? what could cause this?


You don't say what make and model you have, but on many engines now, the water pump is behind the timing cover which is the same cover behind the serpentine pulleys. So it is probable your water pump is leaking in there, and coolant escaping from behind the cover. It is not usually economic to overhaul the pump itself.

If your engine has a timing belt, I'd advise changing that too as it has to come off.

Can a bad timing chain cover gasket cause a coolant leak in my 2003 ford taurus


Yes the timing cover gasket can leak coolant. The coolant passes the waterpump and is pump into the engine block thru the timing cover. to see the actual leak jack up passenger side of car support with jack stand take off wheel and the splash guard now you can see the crank shaft pulley look up at waterpump on both side it goes back to engine block with a mirror you can see it leak.

My 2001 Pontiac montana is leaking coolant when it cool of. Its dripping from the transmition passenger side. I croled underneath and found that the coolant is leaking from the pass side of the engine...


probably a gasket that seals coolant behind cover. I don't remember if there is a freeze plug there.
sometimes a head gasket leak can do the same but not very common.

Dodge 318 v8 coolant leak


It could be coming from the timing cover. On older 318 engines there is a water passage on each side of the timing cover between the pump and the block. If the timing cover decays it can allow coolant to leak into the timing cover, which usually goes into the crankcase.

probably the water pump. front and center of the engine, the pulley that may or may not have the cooling fan attached. from under the truck a leaking water pump usually leaves some coolant residue on the timing cover and at the front of the oil pan where the wiring harness come across.

Coolant leaking behind water pump on 88 f150 with 5.0 engine. What can it be?


Check to see if the intake is leaking out of the corner and leaking down behind the water pump. If not the timing cover could be leaking. The timing cover gasket also seals the water port that goes to the water pump.

2000 3.3 auto grand voyager. got a major coolant leak, to the extent that you can see it weep. Been to Chrysler garage, who said a little is coming from water pump (£275 to replace), but most is...


It must be leaking from under the valve cover. The time for rear valve cover gasket replacement is 2.5hrs and 3hrs for both front and rear, I would replace both at the same time and the gasket.Its advisable to get it done by technician if the coolant is leaking as the coolant is leaking from under the valve cover. Its $300 for parts and services (timing gasket $40, valve cover gasket $140, oil pan gasket set $70, and coolant flush for $50) . ''the timing cover is leaking coolant''--engines water pump is behind the cover and it is failing-. as far as parts and labor it sounds reasonable and it all sounds pretty typical for your vehicle. But still get it confirmed by any other tech before getting it repaired.To confirm the estimate cost. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Leaking coolant


that would ba a big negative the only thing that runs inside that cover is oil now it could be either your water pump or thermostat housing if either one is near that cover the best thing to do is wash down the engine when its cold and once all clean run it and just sit and wait itll show up.. but to answer your question no.. no such thing as coolant in the timing cover
