Unfortunately the only cure for a leaking water pump is to replace it. the belt will probably stop squealing after it has dried. its not all that tough a job and perhaps someone you know could do the labor and parts will most likely be less than 50 bucks

95 Chevy caprice leaking antifreeze from what looks like a pipe under the engine.. But the serpentine belt is wet & spraying antifreeze, so wherever it's leaking from, it's hitting the serpentine belt


Your water pump has a small hole on the top and the bottom of the housing right behind the belt pulley. This is known as a weep hole and is there to let you know when the front seal has gone out of the pump and it is in need of changing. You really want to get this taken care of because on your engine the ignition system is ran off of the crank pulley and is known as "Opti-Spark" when the system gets antifreeze in it it usually goes bad. The Opti-Spark distributor sits right underneath the water pump, so a leaking water pump soon will take out your distributor which is another added expense.

Ignition Coil


Look into the crank sensor or an ecu that needs repairing. Those two, being bad, will cause a no spark condition in your jeep.

Antifreeze leaking underneath front of motor


You will need to locate your water pump. There is a small hole on the bottom of the water pump. If antifreeze is dripping out of this hole it is time to replace. You can also make sure all hose connections are tight.

How to change water pump in 1996 geo metro?


I've found the Haynes Repair Manual that you can get at Auto Zone to be the best one there is. They have step by step instructions with pictures on repairing or replacing just about anything on your auto. You can get them for around $20 - 25. Is yours a 3 or 4 cylinder? Auto Zone has a new service where you can actually look up repair instructions for your vehicle with pictures. Here's the instructions for a 3 cylinder for your year, make and model:
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
CAUTIONWhen draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Remove the air cleaner assembly.
  2. Loosen but do not remove the four coolant pump pulley bolts.
  3. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  4. Remove the lower splash shield.
  5. Remove the air conditioner compressor drive belt.
  6. Remove the lower alternator cover plate bolts, loosen the alternator adjusting bolt and remove the drive belt.
  7. Remove the crankshaft pulley.
  8. Remove the coolant pump pulley.
  9. Remove the timing belt.
  10. Remove the oil level dipstick and guide tube.
  11. Remove the alternator adjusting bracket from the water pump.
  12. Remove the water pump rubber seals.
  13. Remove the water pump mounting bolts and nuts. Remove the water pump from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Clean the gasket mating surfaces thoroughly.
  2. Check the water pump by hand for smooth operation. If the pump does not operate smoothly or is noisy, replace it.
  3. Install the pump using a new gasket. Tighten bolts to 115 inch lbs.. (13 Nm).
  4. Install new rubber seals.
  5. Install the upper alternator adjusting bracket and tighten bolt to 17 ft. lbs.. (23 Nm).
  6. Install the oil level dipstick and guide tube.
  7. Install the timing belt.
  8. Install the water pump pulley and leave the bolts hand tight.
  9. Install the crankshaft pulley.
  10. Install the water pump/alternator drive belt.
  11. Install the lower alternator cover plate and tighten bolts to 89 inch lbs.. (10 Nm).
  12. Install the air conditioner compressor drive belt by releasing the tensioner pulley and installing belt.
  13. Install the lower splash shield and lower vehicle.
  14. Tighten water pump pulley mounting bolts to 18 ft. lbs.. (24 Nm).
  15. Adjust the water pump drive belt tension and tighten alternator adjustment bolt to 17 ft. lbs.. (23 Nm).
  16. Install the air cleaner assembly.
  17. Refill the cooling system.
  18. Connect the negative battery cable.
  19. Start the engine and allow it to reach operating temperature. Check for leaks and refill cooling system as necessary.
