Depending on the type of car you have, you may ask for a second opinion to make sure you need to replace the water pump (and it is not just a re-used hose clamp that is leaking) and to find out if the design of your car needs to get soething else done while you are changing the water pump. For example, some cars have the tming belt and water pump and front oil seals all in the same place, so you might find that it makes sense to do it all for about $450 (hondas and toyotas). Remember, water leaks from hose clamps, hoses, freeze plugs (quarter-sized covers one the sides of the engine block), radiators, water pumps, thermostat housings, heater cores, etc. Make sure you always get a second opinion on your leak. You may save a ton of money. Good luck.

No, leaking water pump just means it is time to replace your pump. Not continue driving until you get around to it. replace it now. If it is not starting something esle is wrong. Unless you've over-heated the engine.

How do i change a water pump on my 1994 honda civic ex coupe 1.6l engine?


Stop leaks rarely works and are often a waste of money. Before going after the water pump, make sure it is that, that is leaking. Many of the smaller engines have the water pump in line with the timing belt, meaning both will need to be changed.

1990 Cabrio water pump leaks on start


Any time ANY vehicle leaks at that weep hole, it's because the seal in the water pump has gone bad. All water pumps have this same weep hole in the same position to let you know the seal is bad. Makes no difference if it has a penny over the hole or not, replace the water pump and it won't "p" on you any more.

2000 FORD EXPEDITION OVERHEATING....changed thermostat,radiator cap, confirmed fan clutch is working, no radiator leak noted, changing coolant temperature sensor as a type...water pump not leaking or...


yes. the impellor on these engines have a tendency to come off the water pump.First you can see if the pump is working by removing a heater hose then have someone to start the engine. if the water sprays a good, solid stream out then the water pump is good. if the water just barely comes out or not at all then the pump is weak or "bad".

The car was leaking antifreeze and started smoking in 40 degree weather. I filled it and it stopped leaking, but the engine is still overheating. If its the water pump, how can I replace it on a 1992 chevy...


Is the antifreeze leaking out of a small hole on the water pump housing just behind the pulley?
You need to know exactly where the leak is coming from. If the pump is not leaking then there is another location.
Generally pumps either work or leak. They do not slow down and overheat the engine.
Where did the smoke come from? Under the hood or out the exhaust pipe? If you blew a head gasket and the exhaust was blowing steam that would cause overheating. The original leak under the engine would cause overheating that then will cause other problems like blown head gaskets.
Did you use stop leak or some quick fix? what did you do to stop the original leak?

1999 Intrigue Cylinder Head Gasket leak


hi Cionie i will have a stab in the dark here, as you say you are not loosing any water and the oil is ok..ie not looking creamy coloured which would point to a head gasket leak for sure, so this sounds like the water pump to me, it seems what is happening is the water is not getting pumped around the engine fast enough to be cooled, has this been checked? as it actually may not be leaking from the pump but the internal fins might be u/s hence not pumping the water fast enough, that really is the only thing that i can think of that has been missed on here.....hope this helps good luck

1997 Cevrolet Cavalier 2.4 liter engine leaks antifreeze


If it is the water pump it will have a rad hose attached to it. There is supposed to be a small hole in the bottom of the water pump. When it starts leaking, it's time to replace the pump. You can do it yourself. A few wrenches and a couple hours is all you need. If you are unsure pick up a Haynes manual for your car when you get the new pump.
