First, to eliminate any confusion, I would go right back to the new water pump, and with a flashight, look very carefully from above and below, because the easiest gasket to screw up is the waterpump gasket. I know I did it several times until I got smarter and older and started using sealer on the pump only.If there is indeed a leak in the gasket it will come down the lower radiator hose or right down from the center bottom of the crankshaft pulley. Now, there are two "outlying" posibilities that I've only seen once or twice in my career of 40+ years. One, the person who changed the pump had to drill and tap a broken bolt and went too far and drilled into the water jacket. 2. The old water pump was soo badly worn that the impeller actually ate a slot through the timing cover.Now mind you, these are both very extreme last straw, camels back etc.etc cases. p.S. Why would the mechanic make such a statement like that....Hmmmm? Anyway back to our leak. Take a good look at the radiator core with again, a flashlight from inside the fanshroud, and make sure you don't see coolant puddling up in the bottom tank where the core meets the tank. If you do, there's one leak to take care of. Also check inside the truck under the mat on the passenger side. Look for and feel for moisture. If there is, than you could need a heater core. A good pressure test will determine almost any leak quickly. And it doesn't cost that much. Word of caution, don't have the same place that did the pump, do the test.

You already have two solutions where you posted this before...as an afterthought to my original solution, I also suggest checking pump bolts to make sure they are all tight (don't go overboard with this and snap any, just make sure that they are not easily turned.)

87 ford ranger coolant leak not from water pump replaced it today appears to be coming from right behind it


I can give you a couple of possible causes(1)freeze plugs in the block,there round & look like drink coasters,but are brass(2)intake manifold gasket can be leaking from the corners where water jackets are/also the head gasket both are on all four corners,I don't know what motor you have,but there are pipes that are called crossovers that run from the back off the timing cover to the heater core on the fire wall,sometimes on top of the manifold on one side & there will be a hose connected to it possible bad hose or corroded tube?

2000 taures se loosing coolent and running hot


Where is it losing the coolant from? If it is from a hose replace them. If it is from the radiator, replace it! If it is coming out of the top of the radiator overflow reservoir then it could be either the thermostat not opening when it should or a water pump not circulating the water as it should.

I am leaking antifreeze under my blazer onto the ground but not inside the vehicle. My blazer does not overheat, my heat will work sometimes while driving but as soon as I stop or slow down it blows cold....


you need to figure out where the coolant is leaking from. Some common areas are

the water pump in which case you would be able to remove the splash shield from under the front of the vehicle and using a flash light be able to see coolant coming out of the weep hole of the water pump.

The intake gaskets. Look in the corner of the intake valley where the head and lower intake meet right under the a/c compressor. If you see coolant its leaking and needs to be replaced.

The radiator, you'll be looking for wet spots on the side tanks of the radiator. Loose upper and lower radiator hoses could also cause this.

If you can't find anything visually you'll need to bring it in and have it pressure tested.

Water pump leaks, needs replaced


Obviously if a Water Pump is leaking that is indicative of a Seal Failure and requires replacement. This is a job you can do yourself if you are handy with tools. Remove the old Water Pump, go to any Auto Parts store such as AutoZone, Oriley's, or some other National chain and purchase a re-manufactured Water Pump and install it with new gasket(s). This can be a somewhat time consuming repair somewhere between one and four hours. Getting at it may require removal of Fan Shroud, Radiator or other components that restrict access to the Water Pump. Obviously a 1995 vehicle will have well over 100,000 miles and this is considered routine maintenance typically around 70,000 miles or more, or 10 years or more. Sometimes the Seal fails because the Coolant wasn't changed often enough and broke down causing the seal to fail sooner. Dirty Dusty conditions will require more frequent changing as dirt eventually gets into the pump and causes the seal to abrade and fail.

Rusty liquid under truck dripping when running sort of more than drip when turned off..not hose not radia. near end of hose opposite the radia..


sound like the water pump and you also need to flush and replace water with antifreeze even in summer because antifreeze has a lubrication factor and wont rust out all the components of the coolant system
