Question about 1993 Toyota Camry V6

2 Answers

I have a small leak from the water pump housing. It appears to be from a small purpose made hole in the casting. Everything appears to function normally, until loss of coolant is excessive. Can I seal this hole with bars leaks or metal filler, or is it an indication there is something wrong with the water pump?

This is called the weep hole. It begins to leak when the pressure gets too high from temprature. Usually caused by an improperly working water pump. You will need to replace the pump or risk major damage to the cooling system.

1990 couger has a few problems at the moment im tring.to.get fixed the importain one at the moment is a water leak from the passanger side of the water pump at least thats where it looks like it comming...


If the pump leaks when it is running it indicates a failed water pump seal. Ther is a drain hole in the housing that allows water to run out before it damages the bearing. Check for corrosion holes in the pump body under the impellor. It is not good policy to buy cheap after market pumps as they have an inferior casting that needs a lot of anti corrosion additive in the water to last .

I'm leaking out of what looks like the water pump on my 2.8L. But, I no the water pump is be hind the harmonic balancer there is a pipe that this could be any ideas?


It could be the water pump seal that is keaking which is running out the drain hole that is built into the pump to stop water getting into the bearing. Judging on the age of the vehicle, corrosion on the metal of the pump could also have found a weak spot in the pump casting and be causing it to leak. Also check where the raiator hose is clamped to the water pump inlet. A hard and/or split hose or corrosion of the housing at this point could also be the cause of the leak. Replacement of the pump appears to be most obvious remedy.

I have been putting alot of coolant in my radiator I dont think its a hose because it seems to be coming from the middle to bottom part of the car could this be a water pump problem?


The water pump is in the center of the engine. It usually has a small hole in the casting on the snout. If the seal went bad water usually runs out of the small hole and down the center of the front of engine. With the engine OFF, put your hand under the pump, and feel the snout to see if water winds up on your hand. If possible use a flashlight and check for a leak all around the pump, and bolts that hold it in. In a rare case the pump gasket could be leaking. If the pump appears to be dry, check the small hose that goes from the center of the pump to the block.

Leaking coolant from a small hole located in the block right under the thermostat housing coolant inlet. we removed housing and gasket replaced gasket and installed, leaks from small hole?


water pump failure, water pump on these run off the timing chain and the timing chain runs in oil, so they could not just put a weep hole on the pump because it would go strait to the oil pan, instead they redirected the coolant from the leaking pump to just below the thermostat housing. And good luck, it's at least a 6 hour job on these. Brandon-MO

Leaking antifreeze, not from radiator but on belt iI believe it the water pump


Check your bottle cap, ensure that cap is tight. If it is, replace cap. Cap is not holding pressure.

2000 Xterra intermentantly overheats (temp gauge goes up) no leak appears present. Coolant level appears correct. Heater will blow cool air, then start blowing hot air. Temp will then come back to normal....


sounds more like the thermostat may be failing. generally a water pump starts leaking out of the "weep" hole in the casting before it quits. just look at the front of the water pump for a greenish streak or an obvious leak.
if you also suspect you heater core may be getting plugged now would be a good time to back flush it to get rid of some of the gunk.

Antifreeze leak at lower raditor housing? antifreeze dripping down oilpan by dipstick tube and aircondition compressor only when hot.


you may have a water pump that is starting to fail. Look for the water pump that's driven by the fan belt. look at the housing of the water pump there is a relief hole that they drill in the casting and when the pump begins to fail it will drip out this hole. If that's where your leak is, it's time to change the pump.

Round machined hole in water pump housing leaking coolant


The hole is there to let you know the antifreeze seal in the pump is leaking. You need a new (or rebuilt ) pump installed immediately. Please change the belt and any tensioners while you are at it...

Leaking coolant


I had the same problem and could not exactly pin point the leak until I took a real close look at the pump when everything was dry. I could see that the small weep hole was leaking which meant that the pump had to be replaced.
ruling out that there is a crack in the pump itself, it is more than likely to be a hose or its connection to the pump, the pump seal to the engine block or the weep hole on the bottom of the pump housing.

If you are to change out the pump yourself, you need remove several parts off the front of the engine so if you are not too confident, I would suggest paying someone to do the job.

Hope this helps
