The water pump is located inside the timing cover, the timing belt drives the water pump, replace timing belt also when doing water pump, will save you labor down the road. Hope this was helpful for you.

Water leaking inside the passenger area of Honda crv 2003... Please please help....

Are you 100% sure it is water IF yes then I would be looking at the door seal (rubber strip that goes around the door) .If no and it could be coolant then I would suspect your heater core is leaking which can be confirmed by doing a pressure test on your radiator.

Toyota pickup antifreeze leak around timing belt cover

You won't really know until you can see the bottom of the pump. Most pumps have a "weep" hole where coolant will leak from if the seal goes bad. It can leak and still function without symptoms until the bearing goes.

Most Hondas with mileage like yours are worth fixing if the body and interior are still in good shape. Look up your book value on Kelly Blue Then a get some prices on the head work or even a used engine.

Time to have the timing belt and water pump replaced. If you are leaking antifreeze you will need to have the water pump replaced for sure and while your in there have them replace the timing belt at the same time because it will save you money in the long run, I know from experience. Hope this helps.

98 crv air conditioning does not blow cold air. small antifreeze leak and anti lock brake light came on. any solutions?

Usually it just needs a recharge of refrigerant. The coolant leak question was vague. Check your brake fluid and see if if needs to be filled. The brake light sensor is on the brake fluid reservoir. It comes on when it needs replenishment.

this happens alot on older vehicles most often times because the coolant hose shrink and expand around a fitting. try and tighten all coolant clamps. this often is all it takes to solve the problem. you should also look to see that all seals around heads of engine show no seepage
