The water pump seal is worn / leaking. Replace the water pump before it ruptures. Use a good coolant / antifreeze to keep the seal lubricated.

I would say you answered your own question, if there is water leaking from the water pump i would say the water pump is leaking and it needs to be replced,either the bearing is bad and its leaking out the shaft,or the seal is bad and its leaking outta there either way you need a new water pump,check the belt for wear when you replace it,,

How do I repair a leak coming from water pump gasket?


If it's leaking from the gasket you'll have to replace the gasket. If coolant is leaking from the hole in the water pump body the water pump seal is leaking. The pump will have to be replaced if the seal is leaking.

My 1998 jeep grand cherokee is running hot and leaking water, is the water pump bad?


well first i would check all the water hoses in the engine compartment for cracks and leaks then check around the radiater for leaks if you don't see any water leaking from the hoses or the radiater then try to see if you see water coming from the water pump behind the cooling fan if the water is leaking from behind the cooling fan then it is most likely your water pump

Water leak underneth 93 ford thunder bird. Don't seem to be coming from the radiar. It's leaking some where near the crank shaft. I really can pin point it yet.


Sounds like it's leaking from the water pump. There are weep holes in the water pump and when the bearing in the water pump has worn out, coolant will start to leak from the holes.

Replace the water pump after you inspected it for any signs of leak. Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

How do you know if your mazda3 2004 water pump leak


Park your car overnight and put a large white piece of paper underneith your car. In the morning check the paper. If the paper is wet with liquid, you could have a water pump leak.

If the paper has green (in most cases) fluid on it, there is a good chance your vehicle is leaking coolant (sometimes refered to as "water"). In many cases, when you are leaking coolant it could be coming from the water pump.

Grab opposite ends of the water pump pulley and check for "play" (looseness): Try to rock it back and forth. There should be no give. If there is, the bearings are going and it's time to replace the water pump. By the time you can feel play in the water pump pulley, you may also be able to hear the bad bearing when the engine is running - there may be a low-pitched grinding noise coming from the water pump pulley

Visually check the water pump (it's located behind the pulley) for signs of a coolant leak. If the water pump gasket is leaking, it must be replaced. This is a good time to get a new water pump, too, unless it was just recently replaced.

1991 honda accord- coolent leaked out from water pump area but water pump seems fine-also when car is ideling car would have little power surges and come close to dying - any ideas


for the water pump leaking, get some engine coolant stop leak from any automotive store, it usually contains pump seal lubricant also. the power surges are a separate problem from your pump leak.

Water leak at front of engine very small amount maybe a gallon every 2 weeks on 5.3 suburban 2002


check your hoses for poor condition and loose clamps. Check the gasket around your water pump as well.

Coolant leak ford aerostar 1996


SOUNDS LIKE THE BEARING PACKING IS STARTING TO LEAK IN THE WATER PUMP. YOUR ONLY SOLUTION IS TO REPLACE THE PUMP. IF YOU GET UNDERNEATH AND LOOK UP AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WATER PUMP YOU WILL SEE A SMALL WEEP HOLE AND THERE YOU WILL SEE THE WATER COMING OUT TO VERIFY IT IS YOUR WATER PUMP AND NOT ANOTHER ISSUE.

Would the water pump leak even when the car has been sitting for 9 hours? I can go to work, and when I come out, I can see the leak. Would that be the water pump?


yes, water pump could link even if it just sitting there for hours. But i would rather not jump into that conclusion, other causes of water leak could be just broken radiator hose and other water connections that simply needs retightening or replacement. check on this first before going to your water pump

2002 chryler sebring is leaking anti freeze


It depends on where the leak is coming from. If the water pump is leaking, it has a hole on the bottom of it. You will see a trail of dried anti freeze coming from the bottom of it, indicating a bad water pump. It's best to dry everything off, crank it up and let it come to operating temp and check for where the leak is coming from. It may just be an old hose or loose clamp.
