SOURCE: over heating , antifreeze leeking from that water


If your water pump is leaking from the water pump for sure that is causing your over heating problem. I am sure that most likely the seal is gone. There is a main seal in the pump, and those are normally the first to go, and you are better off replacing the whole pump, that trying to fix it. Once your water pump is replaced , the over heating problem should be fixed. If pump is leaking it does not have the pressure provided to have the antifreeze and water to flow correctly through engine block and radiator.

Thanks Mike

Water in car

I suggest taking a garden hose and have someone spray your car while you are inside finding the leek stop the leek first .Take a house fan and an extention cord out to car, let fan blow on wet area until dry. another idea is to use a hair dryer. If you dont stop leek you will have a mold problem in no time. If this was helpful please leave good feedback.

Water under my 1993 Buick Skylark and I don't find the draining holes

It is possible the water pump is going bad. They have a wheep hole that slowly leeks when they start to fail. Or are you sure it is not condensation from the air conditioner running.

How to replaced the water pump.

You didn't mention the model of your car. Regardless of what model it is, if you have a mechanical fan, you need to remove it. You will need to buy or make a tool that is a flat strap of metal with holes drilled in it spaced to fit over the heads of the 10 mm bolts that hold the fan pulley on. The tool holds the fan pulley from turning while you loosen the fan. The fan unscrews with left handed threads.
The plastic shroud around the fan comes out together with the fan. On some cars, the water reservoir is attached such that it is easier to pull the whole radiator out with the shroud.
The water pump fits pretty snugly in its hole. There may be a threaded hole in the pump cover that is 'blind. That is, when you screw a bolt in the hole, it pushes against the engine block to pull the pump out of its hole.
While you are replacing the water pump, you will want to replace the thermostat as well as preventative maintenance.
That is about all I can tell you without knowing what model car you have.

92 V6 fan water pup pulley not moving, does this mean the water pump has gone bad? No water leakage

I am going to assume that you have taken off the belt and are sure that exact pully is the one that is froze. So in that case yes there is a VERY strong possibilty that the water pump is bad. I have seen many water pumps freeze up and not leek. It's not real common but it does happen most of them leak. Once you remove it and try to free spin it you will be sure but I say since the belt is off and it's froze, your chances are almost 100% that the pump is bad. I hope this helps and good luck.

Where is the water pump on 97 outback ? i have a coolant leek, it is not the radiator or the hoses. it seems to be running along the oil pan the dripping on to the ground

The water pump is usually located at the front of the vehicle and is driven by a belt. Most water pumps have a "weep hole" on them. This is a small hole on the casing of the water pump. If you see any liquid coming out of the weep hole, then the water pump is bad and will need to be replaced. I assume that you have already checked and replaced the thermostat if needed.
