Question about Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
I have a coolant leak by what seems to be a screw on the bottom of the water pump, it only leaks randomly, but seems to be getting worse....Does it need new WP or just reseal the screw?
It sounds like there is a rubber gasket problem, i would take it out and seal it. autozone has a blue sealant that is made for the coolant system. take it out, make sure its dry, and smear it in the screw, make sure to get it in the threads. it takes an hour to set and 24hrs to fully cure

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: Leaking coolant
Highly unlikely that is the case more likely it is the radiator leaking onto the fan. Also check the upper hose to make sure that it doesnt have a pin hole in it. Good luck and dont forget to rate.

have you replaced the bleeder screws? and the expansion tank cap they both have O-rings that compress and will fail over time also check the hose at the top of the exp tank it also has o-rings inside it

there should be a vaccum hose diagram on the under side of the hood pertaining to the evap system, check and see. if not just google it, shouldnt be too difficult to find.

when installing new o-ring on tube, lubricate o-ring and stick it in water pump. Then pull pressure back on tube and then tighten hold down clamp. problem solved
