Wife,s 97 buick skylark, 2.4 L., leaking water. need help!!!


I had the same problem a month ago. I thought it was the thermostat, which sits inside the lower water feed tube that runs from the radiator, under the car and up between the engine and trans axle to the thermostat housing and water-inlet housing attached to the water pump. I replaced it and it kept leaking. So I got under the car with a mirror and a light and found that it was leaking from a weep hole in the water pump. This happens when the water pump seal is bad. to replace the water pump you nearly have to take apart the back of the engine and the timing chain cover. The waterpump is mounted at the bottom of the back of the engine and is turned by the timimng chain. It took me two days to fix, and it was not easy. There are a couple of sites that have info, which helped me. It's about a $600 - $900 job if you take it to a repair shop.

if starter fluid made it chug, I would suspect fuel pump fuse, relay or pump, also fuel filter.

We replaced the water pump on a 1993 buick skylark and the radiater outlet pipe that goes into the water pump housing we are having trouble getting it to seal up and not leak does anyone know if ther is...


Yes I think there is an O ring . But in any case try this, coat the outside of the pipe with RTV/Silicone gasket sealer, put it back in and let it set up for an hour or soo, this will seal the pipe.

I need to change the thermostat on a 1997 buick skylark 2.4


water pump is located at the very back of your car engine almost touching the firewall.
its a pain to get back there and just pray your water pump dont actually go out cause its best to take to a mechanic its all inter twined with the timing chain and alot of removal just to take out and replace..best of luck
