Water pumps have a drain hole on the bottom next to the block and it is there to allow water that has passed a faulty seal to leak out before it damages the bearing.. Pull the water pump and if that is the case replace it with a new item as it is more expensive to repair than to replace.

SOURCE: 1998 monte carlo coolant

I just did a lower intake reseal on my 98 monte's 3100, it's not tough to do, the biggest part is paying attention to what pushrod came from what position and ensuring they go back to where they came from, not only for wear patterns, but for different lengths on the intake and exhaust push-rods.

I work for a GM dealer in northwest montana, and I can say it's not cheap labor-wise, generally around 6 hours of labor and around 300 in parts...it can add up quick, but when those intakes start leaking oil and coolant, things can go sour quickly...espeically if coolant starts leaking into the engine, not good for bearings.

Dex cool is not the problem with these gaskets leaking, it's common on 3100's, 3400's, 3300's, etc, any motor from that series that has that style of lower intake is prone to the issue, the rubber/plastic/composite will eventually warp, break down, crack, seperate from hot and cold cycles, I've seen it all too many times. Dex cool is the best coolant out there, there's a reason that prestone, peak, zerex can't compete, in fact a few of those blends are blends that are less efficient that Dex that GM decided not to patent. But the Dex patent is due to run out soon to the point everyone can start using dex. One issue with dex is the "gum-up" problem when the mixture is not ideal and the level is left low, but flushing and setting proper mixture (50/50) and level will alleviate this problem.

SOURCE: Air Conditioning water leak inside

The drainage tube for the evaporator case is plugged causing the the condensation to drain inside instead of outside the car. The car will probably need to be lifted to find the drainage tube. Use a pick to gently remove the debris blocking the tube. You must be very careful as not to puncture the evaporator core.

I have a 2006 pontiac grand prix and it is leaking coolant and we can not find where it is leaking from. We replaced the water pump gasket and it still leaks. It looks like it is leaking from something...


have a pressure test done so that you can see where it is leaking from.. If it is in the side of the block it may be a rusted welsh plug. Check inside the car for a leaking heater core and hoses . Check the drain hole under the water pump as it may be leaking from that hole while the pump is running ( water pump seal)

My ford windstar is leaking antifreeze fast, what could be the problem? and can i fix it


If the antifreeze is leaking fast, then the most probable cause can be a hole or split in one of the coolant hoses. It is also possible for the radiator or water pump to have a leak. If you cannot see the leak when you inspect under the hood, then you may have to take the vehicle to your service repair shop where they can lift the van on a hoist to inspect underneath and they can pressurize the system to locate the coolant leak..

What is the cause of lots of coolant leaking underneath front of truck?


Does it leak while running or whlie stopped/off? If it leaks while it's running the water pump has most likely gone bad.... in the absence of an obvious leak in the radiator itself.

Anti freeze/coolant leasking from the front lower part of the engine, is this the end of my motor???? Its 2000 LHS w/3.5 ltr. V6, thanks.


It sounds from what i can make out that it's leaking from your water pump and will need to be replaced if you mean the engine of the engine where the serpentine belt is. Before you go replacing the water pump, inspect the hose clamps first to ensure that you cover all bases. Good luck and keep me posted, and don't add any radiator stop leak. They just clog up the coolant jackets and restrict the flow of coolant.

Coolant leak behind bottom pulley


Could be water pump weephole leak or water pump gasket under water pump trailing down timing cover and exiting behind crank pulley or water . Worse case, leak in timing cover. Water crosses through timing cover to and from water pump to engine block.

Coolant level


could be coolant leak possibly water pump common for that car. how many miles. think t-belt and water pump. Would be better to do both. or coolant leak from coolant flange on left side of engine under the plastic covers pull covers off both top one and smaller side one you will be able to see coolant flange from that view. look for pinkish or white trail on block below the flange or if you can look on the right side of engine from under car to see if there is a trail on that side on the right side it will be leaking water pump.

A leak under the water pump? Just put new water pump in and did not fix the problem.


When you replace the water pump you have to loosen the bolts that also go though the timing chain cover. This have to be removed and the gasket behind it replaced as well as two water pump gaskets. Check all your clamps (best to use new ones) first, but you may be having gasket problems between the pump, pump backing plate, timing chain cover and engine block.

Antifreeze leak


Ok, Its defiantly the seal that is between the water pump and the engine block that is leaking the coolant.
