HI, this is caused due to presure in the cooling system and the coolant is being pushed out the weep hole on the water pump. Its just telling you its time for a new one.

Water pump leaks out weep hole in water pump when plugged in otherwise doesn't leak! Does this mean water pump seal is out?


Yes. Water pump seal is leaking. The weep hole keeps the water from getting to the bearing in the water pump.

Removed thermostat due to over heating, water was not circulating in radiator. but now it is leaking by the water pump


if leaking under water pump its a weep hole or bearing to water pump (pump gone bad) if leaking above where thermostat was gasket leak but if overheating was original problem more than likely water pump was and is your problem

My 2006 charger 3.5 is leaking coolant but only somtimes is it a sign of water pump malfunction no indications on the gauges but car seems to be running hot


this is most likely the water pump if it is leaking at front of engine, the water pump is under the large timing belt cover and driven by the timing belt, so both are changed at the same time.

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.

Coolant leak behind bottom pulley


Could be water pump weephole leak or water pump gasket under water pump trailing down timing cover and exiting behind crank pulley or water . Worse case, leak in timing cover. Water crosses through timing cover to and from water pump to engine block.

Why is there a water leak coming from the water pump?


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,,
