Question about 2003 Chrysler Sebring
Bought car to have water pump replaced cause of a anti freeze leak. they said I didn't need pump but my engine gaskets all had to b replaced so they did that plus sent heads to be plained. said they put new clamps on all of pipes n tubes for anti freeze leak. 2 days later car wont start get it started and am getting a chocolate milk dripping under car. bring it back to mechanic he said my water pump broke cause the engine was air tight and caused an internal leak so now wants to replace water pump. has anyone ever heard of that

Yes, your water pump attaches to the front of the engine block. If a leak opens up between the two, coolant goes into the crankcase along with oil. That means water and oil are being circulated through the bearings and cylinders of your engine. Don't drive it in this condition.

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.

Testimonial: "I replaced the starter. This job is quite substantial. Also found the nut connecting the cable to the starter coil was not tight. I think it is fixed."

1st make sure your cooling fans turn on. If they do, you probably have air in your cooling system. If you don't know where the bleed valve is or how to bleed the cooling system, check out this link. COOLANT BLEED VALVE
