With the engine turned off, put your finger up behind under the pump pulley. if you find antifreeze there likely the pump seal has failed. Otherwise, locate the leak source and make whatever repair is necessary. You will get a noise any time water or coolant gets on the drive belt. Best to look before going through a pump replacement to find later you have a pin hole in the radiator on a hose!!!

Belt slipped off leaked antifreeze can i replace the belt and still be able to drive it


if there was a coolant leak then the squeak is more than likely the water pump hence the leak, a belt coming off would'nt cause a coolant leak on its own ,i'd get the water pump checked

your water pump must have seized There is likely a seal in the waterpump that cracked and allowed antifreeze into the bearing in the water pump

I have a 3.8l grand caravn and it's leaking antifreeze from the part that the lower rad hose is conected to. i'm assumeing that it's the water pump.


THAT SOUNDS CORRECT! THE WATERPUMP HAS WHAT IS CALLED A WEEP HOLE! IT IS LOCATED ON THE BOTTOM OF THE WATERPUMP! IF THAT IS LEAKING, THE WATERPUMP WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED!

I have a really high squeaking noise coming from my engine now and my water pump has been leaking for awhile but i havent got to it yet but my best guess is that its the belt around my water pump but im...


I would replace the faulty waterpump and belt asap you could cause major engine damage by overheating it . the squealing is either caused by the belt slipping from having antifreeze on it or the water pump may have totally locked up .

2004 lincoln ls 3.9 the engine overheats just slightly to force water out of the degas bottle and the engine makes a squeaking noise on the front right side?


If this happens often then turn on the heater full blast to ensure that the heater core is getting enough fluid. It really sounds like the thermostat and a low coolant ratio. So follow the steps below.

1. Have the coolant system flushed.
2. Refill with a proper percentile of quality antifreeze.
3. Check and (probably replace the thermostat)

If the issue is resolved by the above (and it probably will be) then good deal.
If not then you need to have a qualified mechanic check out the waterpump.
