Hello almost all water pumps have a weep hole either on top,bottem or both of the pump when the internal seals and bearings of the pump go bad , antifreeze will come out of the weep holes when it does you need to replace the pump kind of a safty feature before the pump starts to fall apart.

It is a round hole, and is fairly small to let out coolant if the pump seals go bad in water pump.

How can I tell if water pumps needs replacing on 02 Hyundai Santa fe

usually you will see coolant levels drop and the spots appear under the vehicle. The water pump has a small hole in the area of the shaft called a WEEP hole. The coolant starts dripping out of it when the busing inside the pump starts to wear. If you have to you can look under the car and see if there is any coolant on the undercarriage too.

Sound commng from front of engine, loss of coolent a little, but not overhheating, a little loss of power sometimes/ the nose sounds loud and clangs a little, could it be the water pump

Sounds like it is the water pump. You can check by looking on the underside of the water pump at the small hole under the pulley. If coolant is coming from this hole, you need to be replacing soon.

How do I Know when the water pump leaks, what do I look for? I cannot afford any unwarrented service performed on my car. I have only 53260 miles on it and have had it serviced every 5000 or less miles....

The water pump Has a Little hole placed in it, for that reason. You need to look under the car at the front of the engine you'll see the water pump. And the hole If you see water seeping from the hole the seal is bad in the pump and, should be replaced
