What you are describing is the beginning of water pump failure. That little hole is called the weep hole and if coolant comes out that means the pump is failing.

It is corroded & needs replacing. Normally this occurs over time when you put water in your cooling system instead of inhibitor. As your water travels around your motor it gets electrically charged and will re-act to any alloy.

That hose is the drain hose for the air conditioner evaporator. If it is leaking coolant, there's a good chance that your heater core is leaking, as it is in the same 'box' that the air conditioner evaporator is in. You'll need to replace the heater core.

SOURCE: How to replace a water pump on a 1999 dodge

so i just replaced my water pump today on the same car, mine is a 5.9 magnum. I drained the whole system before i started working on it, next you have to take off the fan, if you look on the inner side of the fan there is a big nut there, in order to loosen that i put to bolts into the holes on the water pump pulley and used a thin screwdriver for leverage, while putting pressure on that, i loosened the nut, be careful not to slip cuz those fan blades are dangerous. but once you have removed that nut from the pulley take out the four bolts holding on the housing, pull the fan and the housing out at the same time. next remove the belt, after that is done, disconnect the hoses from the water pump, there are three, one on each side and one on top. there are a total of eight bolts holding the pump on, keep track of them because they are different sizes. But that is how i removed mine. It was all farely simple i am a girl and i managed to do it so i think you should be fine. Hope it works for you becuase it didnt work for me, i now think that it is my head leaking, if you know anything about that let me know.

SOURCE: 1999 2.0L VW Jetta coolant leak behind crankshaft pulley

The MK3 VW's are prone to failure of the "coolant flange", which is located to the right of the valve cover, and will have 4-5 hoses and or sensors sprouting from it.

I'd be willing to bet that this is the source of your leak, not the cam pulley.

The part is inexpensive.

My coolant level is dropping about two cup fulls every couple of months,there is no coolant on ground just a small water drip on garage floor after about middleways underneath engine after driving it.


There are only a few ways coolant can get out of the cooling system.
First check where the hoses connect to the radiator to make sure they are completely dry. Then check directly under radiator to make sure it isn't damp. Sometimes the radiator cap will go bad and allow some coolant to leave. You can replace the radiator cap relatively cheap. The very worst way you can be loosing coolant is thru a blown head gasket. The coolant slowly leaks into the cylinder and is burned. You would have to go to a mechanic to have this verified.

95-2001 plymouth voyager water pump


For all dodge minivans 94 to 2001 (and others) with 3.0 ltr V-6. You're driving on the freeway your temp gauge starting to go up. You get off the freeway. when the engine is cooled down you discover that the coolant in gone. You refill the radiator and look for a leak but can't find one. You check the oil but its not foamy, so no coolant there. If all seems to be operating normally, check under the vehicle when the engine is warmed up. There may be a slight coolant leak on the passenger side near the front tire .When the water pump on these engines typically coolant will leak out of the pump thru a "weep hole" located at the bottom of the pump. Most of the loss occurs while driving so your only indication may be that small drip of coolant. The water pump is powered by the camshaft timing belt and is located under the timing belt cover and can not be seen, however any coolant leak, no matter how small, in the area just to the rear of the crankshaft pulley is almost surely a failed water pump and must be addressed immediately

Coolant leak


the reason for the low heat is most likely you're low on anti-freeze. If your water pump is dripping, most likely you need a new one.

How can I tell if water pumps needs replacing on 02 Hyundai Santa fe


usually you will see coolant levels drop and the spots appear under the vehicle. The water pump has a small hole in the area of the shaft called a WEEP hole. The coolant starts dripping out of it when the busing inside the pump starts to wear. If you have to you can look under the car and see if there is any coolant on the undercarriage too.

I have a 2001 Ford Taurus. It recently started to smell when the heater is on. The weeping hole under the water pump had a slight drip at the bottom. I added a little water, since the coolant was only...


The smell of the antifreeze is coming from the drip in the water pump hitting the hot engine block and burning off.
The water pump bearing seal is bad and will Begin to get worse.
You can get away with this problem for a little while but you will continue to have the smell until you fix the water pump,
Hope this help give feedback and good luck FixYa

Car runs well but after driving it awhile the fan does not come on. the temp gauge in the dash does not go up past halfway but steam comes from under the hood.the fan works and i replaced the temp sencer...


Typically when there is steam coming from the hood there is a pin hole in the radiator or hose. Most of the time when I see this problem there was a small chip in the radiator from a stone. It would allow steam to push out of the radiator but it was small enough to not allow any fluid to drip out. Hope this helps!
