Water Pump Leaking??

Recently, a Toyota mechanic told me that my 2002 Toyota Camry had a water pump leak, and that is was quarter-sized. The vehicle has approximtely 65,000 miles.

If there is no puddle under the car where it is parked, nor any spots of dried collant, how can anyone know that the water pump is leaking?

Is this an expensive repair, assuming that the pump is indeed leaking?

Yes it is a very expensive repair, they (whom ever they are) may have seen a coolant stain on the area around below the pump under the car, if it goes it can overheat and cause serious engine damage very quickly. have u been under the car to look?

Water pump leaking coolant


Sorry, the impeller seal or water pump gasket has failed. Either way, the water pump has to come off. If it's the gasket, I'd replace the water pump anyway since it's off the engine.

What engine size? how many miles on the vehicle?

1: Leaking Water pump - How do I notice this in the car ?

Typically you will see a lot of dried up coolant around the water pump. If the coolant level gets low enough it will cause the vehicle to over heat and potentially do a lot of damage.

Water pumps are extremely common on these years.

2. Under Steering components it says Rack is Leaking, Passenger bellow torn open.

The rack is the part that turns the wheels left and right. If a bellow is torn and there is fluid coming out of it than the seals in the rack have gone bad. Eventually enough fluid will leak out and cause the power steering to no longer work and possibly ruin the power steering pump.

3. LF Strut /stunt is seeping.

It means that the oil on the strut is starting to leak out. The strut is what absorbs the bumps in the road and holds your tires down on the road. Eventually the strut will loose its ability to do this and the tires will start to cup. It is not uncommon for struts to show signs of leaking and is usually the first indicator that the strut is starting to fail.

Hope that helped.

I was told my 2006 camry water pump leaked. Is there any way to visually verify the pump leaks? I want to confirm myself before spending $400 for the replacement.


you could pressure check cooling system and look for your leak not certain if 06 cam engine is equipped with timing belt driven waterpump but if it is and it is leaking under pressure you should see it coming out of timing cover

Camry 1993 oil pump


No reason to toss the engine then. The oil pump drive sprocket is located behind the timing cover and he would have had to remove a lot of things to have definitively told you it was the pump leaking. Even then, you shouldn't have to replace it. It's far more likely to be a crank or cam seal that's leaking. Just the fact that he told you 1200 bucks would make me run, it's a 6.5 hour job to change the pump. I would suggest taking it somewhere else. Without knowing the service history, this is what I would do if it were my car: Since you have to remove the timing cover to get at the oil leak, I would take to a Toyota dealer and have them attack it as a timing belt job, tell them; "while you're in there, fix the oil leaks and replace the water pump". The labor for all of this is about 4.5 hours (~$450.) + parts (timing belt, water pump, seals (~$250). This gets you a whole bunch of maintenance for about 800 bucks. Now if you have had the waterpump and timing belt done already, you would be looking at 4 hrs labor and a handful of seals (~$30) to just fix the oil leaks.
Just out of curiosity, what part of the world are you in? My dollars relate to the Vancouver, Canada market.

Leaking water down the side of motor from the head gasket


it can possibly be a broken gasket seal in your water pump, i recommend that if this is the problem replacing the timing belt and water pump at the same time. i have a 1987 toyota camry station wagon as well and the same thing happen to me, if its leaking from teh side, its most likely the waterpump which is located underneath the alternator and attatched behind the timing belt
