SOURCE: Freeze Plugs

Freeze plugs are generally pried out and pounded in, although some are available that seal by squeezing a rubber piece between washers. Use 2 wrenches to tighten these. All generally available at auto parts stores.

The real problem is often getting to the leaking freeze plug. Some are on the lower sides of the block with plumbing and accessories blocking access. There are also some on the rear surface of the block, which usually require separating the transmission from the engine to replace.

SOURCE: 2002 chryler sebring is leaking anti freeze

It depends on where the leak is coming from. If the water pump is leaking, it has a hole on the bottom of it. You will see a trail of dried anti freeze coming from the bottom of it, indicating a bad water pump. It's best to dry everything off, crank it up and let it come to operating temp and check for where the leak is coming from. It may just be an old hose or loose clamp.

SOURCE: Slow Leak in Water Pump-1999 Plymouth Voyager

What's probably happening is the weep hole on the water pump is leaking water. The weep hole is a warning sign that the water pump needs replaced. You don't have any heat because the impeller in the water pump is no longer circulating water.

I have a leak in the trunk and it is not the sunroof plugs. where else could that water be coming from?


The rubber water shield (weatherstripping) around the trunk opening must be leaking. Feel around for moisture along and under the rubber strip. Maybe a tear is letting water in. Maybe the rubber came loose from where it is glued down. If you find a possible source of the leak, use rubber cement (or weatherstripping glue from a parts store) to seal it back up.
Good luck.

2001 Volkswagen Beetle 2.0L - 4 months ago the water pump was leaking from the weephole behind the pulley. I replaced the water pump with one from NAPA, timing belt, etc. It ran great for a couple days...


The only thing I can think on is belt tension. You are turning the tensioner counterclockwise and aligning the arrow with the cut out on the head right? But this is a guess only, even if the belt was too tight it should make noise and go longer than that before the bearing would wear enough for the internal seal to leak.

Have a 1999 vw beetle, the water pump was replaced and the timing belt and serpentine belt. When we turned car on to drive all the anti freeze drained out. Where would it be draining from?


Hello,
There are several places it could be leaking out from. It could be come from a hose that was not properly tightned or from a gasket that was damaged or improperly torqued down. Is the coolant leaking externally or internally?

I have a water leak. the hoses all seem good as does the "weep hole" on the water pump. The oil and trans fluid look normal and the car runs fine. The only thing I see is below the alternator...


Not all water pumps leak from the weep hole, if the water pump casket becomes worn then it will leak from behind the water pump. You can also have a leak coming from the thermastat housing. To find out exactly have a pressure test performed on your car.

Unable to locate the water pump on the 1998 volkswagen beetle need to remove the water pump but cannot locate it,


  • Use a screwdriver to unscrew the clamp that connects the negative battery cable to the battery post. Remove the cable. Jack up the car using an automotive jack.

  • 2

    Set a large container underneath the radiator at the drain hole to catch the discharged coolant. Open the cap on top of the radiator and unplug the drain plug underneath the radiator.

  • 3

    Remove the components that lead to the water pump using an adjustable wrench. In order, these include the upper and lower engine covers, the accessory drive belt and its tensioner and the upper and center timing belt covers.

  • 4

    Free up the timing belt by turning the engine so that the number one cylinder is at the TDC mark. Loosen the timing belt tensioner enough to ease the belt from the sprocket. Remove the timing belt mounting bolts.

  • 5

    Unbolt the water pump retaining bolts and then the water pump. Remove the o-ring and discard it. Clean the mounting surface.

  • Put on the New Pump you get to it from the front....it is internal.....

    I have a 04 VW Beetle with a 2.0. Just replaced the thermostat. Now it is leaking coolant badly. I have checked and seems to be comming from the middle of the engine. I have checked both the thermostat and...


    If it is not coming out of any hose connection, and it is in the middle front area...it is most likely the water pump. You may be able to get a look at the pump, which is run by the timing belt. The pump mounts behind its rear cover unfortunately. Some water pumps have a small hole that you can check for water leaking out to indicate it is bad. If not, you will have to remove the timing belt rear cover to check the water pump gasket area for water leaks.
    A head gasket is not likely unless you find water in your oil.
    Good Luck!

    Loss of antifreeze


    Bit odd that mechanics cant find it but here are a few suggestions:
    1. A damaged seal on the water pump. As the water in the cooling system is both hot and under pressure when the engine is running, and the pump shaft rotates at high speed, water leaking past a water pump seal will be thrown off the water pump shaft and evaporate very quickly. When the engine is stopped, and the water cools the pressure reduces and so doesnt force the water past the seal, so apears to be okay.
    2. A core plug in the engine block has rusted through enough for a very small leak to occour, again when the engine is hot. Core plugs are very often obscured from view by ancilaries such as ignition parts, alternator, exhaust, etc, so are very difficult to see when the engine is running.
    3. Rubber hoses can become porous as they get old (10 years is plenty old enough) and as for the two possibilities above, only "leak" when the engine is hot so even a very close visual inspection may not show the leak.
    4. If you can smell antifreeze inside the car, particularly when the engine is hot, then you may have a leak on the heater matrix which is like a mini radiator inside your dashboard. If you find the car steams up a lot even on a warm and dry day, this is a good indicator of a leaking heater matrix.

    I have personaly fixed "untraceable" water leaks atribuitable all of the above over my years of working on cars. Unlike a proffesional mechanic, time wasnt money for me so I spent many hours finding some of them. Good luck !
