Unfortunately your going to have to access and remove water pump again until you find what is causing the leak.

SOURCE: how do i change drive belt on p38 range rover

My sincere apologies for the delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.
I have only been a free contributor to this site for the past 4-months.

Not sure if this what you need for the "P38" but it is for the 1996 Range Rover.

I do not know if you still need this information, but I am going ahead and answering it anyway.


Click on the following Link. It has the several Serpentine Belt Diagrams, one of which matches your specific vehicle with your particular options (AC, Power Steering etc..).

Regarding HOW:
Standard Rule to Removal the Serpentine Belt:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Rotate/Move the Tensioner away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys
.
Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.

b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.
Let me know if this helped...

It appears that you have a minor leak at where a hose attaches to an engine or radiator pipe. When the engine is hot, any small leak will evaporate quickly and therefore not be seen. As the coolant heats up it will expand into the overflow tank but once the engine is stopped the extra heat build up will force the coolant out the leaking joint. As the engine cools, the leak prevents the coolant from being sucked back from the overflow tank.

Check all hoses and clamps including heater hoses and those pesky little bypass hoses in the cooling system for a good tight fit and replace any hoses that have gone hard or have become soft and stretched. Those spring type hose clamps tend to be less effective in clamping as the hoses age. Worm drive ones are the best to use.

If unsure take vehicle to a cooling system specialist and have them do a pressure test and more thorough diagnosis.

If problem persists, then it could indicate a problem with the head gasket (Usually caused by allowing engine to become excessively overheated when cooling system has run dry) allowing very hot high pressure combustion gases into the engine water jacket, which super heats the coolant in the engine block, which then boils off, and is released via the cap or any leaks. If the head gasket is really bad it will leak water into the cylinders and into the oil in the sump. This is indicated by an emulsion of water and oil mix on the dipstick. You will also see white smoke (water vapour) from the exhaust.

How do you change a freeze plug leaking under water pump ?


Is it dripping from the waterpump? Gradually getting worse?
It will appear to come from the back of the water pump. This means that you'll have to change out the pump itself.
Haven't actually done a sonoma..but basically the same on most vehicles. Pick up new pump from auto parts store. Some gasket sealer too is good idea. Also some anti freeze.

Drain antifreeze into bowl to reuse. Run it through a sock or other filter befor putting it back in.
Loosen and remove any belts. Remove the small bolts holding the pump to the block.
Possibly you may need to move stuff like the alternator to reach it??
Look at the new pump to see how many bolt holes, so you don't miss any.
Pull pump away. May need to tap the pump with hammer to bust it loose.
CLEAN the mounting surface. CLEAN the mounting surface. CLEAN the mounting surface.
Avoid gouging the surface. Apply film of gasket sealer to CLEAN surface, AND the gasket that came with the new pump. Block, Sealer, Gasket, Sealer, Pump. Position pump and bolt in place evenly. Snug up each side at same time step by step. Tighten firmly,but don't crank down too hard, you'll strip threads.
Restore any moved items, replace belts and tighten all up. Fill radiator. Start engine. Top up radiator. Top up again with gentle reving of engine. Close radiator. Fill top up bottle.
close hood if all seems ok.
Good luck

Water pump still leaks 92 cadillac deville


yes always use gasket sealer on both sides of the gasket. and make sure the old gasket is completely removed but do not use a chisel ar anything as you will leave gouges in the metal and cause a leak. Best to clean it is with some sand paper and just take your time. And just a thougtht but all i use is the black gasket sealer. It seems to wwork the best.
