    Correct.... I went to Advanced Auto yesterday and upon seeing the water pump, there is a vent right on top of the rubber part towards the bottom rear part of the waterpump. The person on duty advised me that the water is flowing straight through as the gear in the water pump is going bad and hence I have to change the water pump which requires me to take the whole timing belt unit out. I am debating at this point as to what to do with the car...
    Any other info will be greatly appreciated. Also other than the regular tools what other specialized tools do I have to have to complete this job.

Where is the water pump located? I had something blow and its leaking raidaitor fluid around pully system? What do I need to take apart to find the water pump?

Your fan & pulley are bolted to the waterpump. You need to remove plastic fan schrod, then fan, pulley, belt then you will see waterpump bolted to front of engine. Stop by any good parts store, have them look up waterpump and show you what it looks like. Then you'll know what to look for.

Leaking coolant but no crack in reservoir or radiator hoses

If it's leaking from center front of engine compartment it's likely to be waterpump. Waterpumps have a small hole called weep hole for early warning when waterpump seal fails leaks coolant into bearing.

How to replace a waterpump on a 1999 chevy lumina?

The waterpump is located on passenger side of the car. Its location if you were standing looking from the passenger side at the engine is at the top right of the engine.There is a pully at the top of the engine that has 4 10mm headed bolts should be a non grooved pully.Loosen the bolts on that pully with the belt on once you loosen these bolts but do not remove them just yet.Using a 3/8 drive ratchet find the belt tensioner and release the belt making sure you remember the belt routing.Typically the the belt routing is printed on a plastic shroud that is just above the waterpump. Once you have removed the belt take out the 4 bolts that you previously loosened.Remove that pully now and the waterpump is right behind that. Sometimes the pully sticks a bit so you may need to put something behind it to gently dislodge it.There are 5 bolts on the waterpump the head of these bolts are 5/16 or 8mm remove the the five bolts using a quarter inch drive ratchet.Once this is done you may need to dislodge the pump.A dead blow hammer works well or a block of wood and a hammer could be used in a pinch.This should not require alot of force.Just a few taps should do it you are just breaking the gasket seal at this point.Now that the old pump is removed the old gasket needs to be removed from the waterpump housing. make sure all old gasket material is removed so the new one will seal properly.Take out the replacement pump and and line the new gasket on the waterpump once you have done this remove the gasket so you can adhere the gasket in place with a thin coat of rtv or weatherstrip adhesive.Now you ready to reverse the process to put it back on.Just make sure to line up the five bolt holes and your ready to go. Hope this helps.

Squeeling noise by the waterpump and serpentine belt leaks and always adding water

I would say the water pump is bad , Take the belt off spin the water pump with your hand , should feel smooth . Look at the top of pump for a small hole , this is the vent hole , most water pump leaks are here . You may need a flashlight and mirror to see behind the pulley . hope this helps

Not too bad,you have to remove fan,to get the water pump mounting bolts.take off the belt,remove the pump.Some people remove the radiator for more room ,this no big deal,just remove the top 2 bolts,remove upper,lower hoses,pull the fan cover off.You don't put RTV on gasket,also there's an small o ring that has to be replace,behind the pump.

Water pump removal (cant get power steering pump out)

To access and remove the waterpump, the powersteer bracket has to be removed completely. To do this, the rear camshaft drive pulley must be removed (need a tool to hold pulley, bolt tight) and then the thin sheetmetal shield behind the pulley. This allows access to the lower powersteer bracket bolts.
Removal of the engine mount is also required to perform timing belt replacement. It also helps to increase your access room too.
I would recommend you replace the waterpump why you are there as they have a tendancy to fail at around 140000 km's.

Water pump leaking,,, any solutions

I agree entirely with the posted answer. The timing belt MUST be replaced every 120,000 km or 75,000 miles. The water pump should ALWAYS be replaced at the same time and you will never run into this problem.
