if you have a 2.7 v6 engine th ecoolant you are seeing is the water pump, on this engine the water pump is internal and driven by the timing chain, it is a very difficult job and quite pricy since it is very labor intensive.

2001 2500 silverado 6.0 where is the weep hole?

It is the water pump, i would buy a new thermostat also, you can buy a water pump that comes with a new stat and housing, that is the best way i think and that is the way i do them.

These water pumps are big looking but are very easy to replace, i will tell you that when they leak it is very, very hard to see the weep hole, the area you say yours is leaking is the pump so sure, this waterpumps leak at the mating gasket where the pump meets the block or weep hole, any way it is the waterpump.

you will see the new one , how they put the weep hole it flows through the housing to leak out when bad but hard to see.

hope this is helpful.

I have a 2002 Dodge intrepid I replaced the thermostat and it leaking from the weep hole what do I do??

my guess here is that the thermostat has a little "hole" on the edge of the frame. This hole has to face a certain position to "breathe" if it is in the wrong position, the problem you have is the result. take the thermo back out and notice where the "hole" is it's small and it's on the edge of the thermo... Normally this hole will be facing up somewhere between "10 and 1 O'clock" check this and let me know what you find...

I changed a thermostat on a 2004 dodge intrepid 2.7 and there is a hole thats located next to the bottom housing bolt leaking coolant

The hole you are describing sounds to be the wheap hole for the water pump
years ago the first time i had that issue it drove me nuts to figure it out .. btw not really a job to take on by yourself as it is a chain driven motor, also make sure you are prepared to pay more than the mechanic tells you as it is common to have to change the chain tensioner after this repair (when they collapse the hydrolic unit alot of times they will not "re-inflate")

Radiator fluid leaking - top driver side under the thermostate housing or water pump housing?

1st check to see if the hose to the thermostat housing is tight, if so, then check the thermostat housing to see if anti freeze is leaking from that area, if so replace the gasket, or try tightning down the bolts, but don't over do it with the tightening, if that area is ok, then check to see if antifreeze is leaking from water pump, start vehicle and let run, and observe the pump for any leakage, do not get close to the fan area, most of the time when water pumps go bad , they have a small hole in the bottom of the pump, this is called a weep hole, this is a true sign that the bearing and seal in the pump is wearing out, hope that this information has helped.

Coolant leaking on drivers side? have replace resevior and wateroutlet

Sounds very much like a water-pump.

Look for a leak below the water pump.
If so we believe the inter seal of the water pump to be the failure, this will result in a coolant weep coming from the weep hole near the center shaft of the water pump.

Replace the water pump.

We hope this tip guides to to your solution.

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
