You have to replace entire waterpump, you can't replace just the seal

How do I repair a leak coming from water pump gasket?


If it's leaking from the gasket you'll have to replace the gasket. If coolant is leaking from the hole in the water pump body the water pump seal is leaking. The pump will have to be replaced if the seal is leaking.

Over heating , antifreeze leeking from that water


Hello,

If your water pump is leaking from the water pump for sure that is causing your over heating problem. I am sure that most likely the seal is gone. There is a main seal in the pump, and those are normally the first to go, and you are better off replacing the whole pump, that trying to fix it. Once your water pump is replaced , the over heating problem should be fixed. If pump is leaking it does not have the pressure provided to have the antifreeze and water to flow correctly through engine block and radiator.

Thanks Mike

Windsheild fluid runs out of the resivor


Most washer bottles have the pump assembly mounted directly in the bottom of the bottle and after several years the seal on the shaft between the pump impeller and the motor can become worn and hard and start to leak. Also the tube on the outlet of the pump could be loose or has become disconnected allowing any fluid to run out. To check, remove washer bottle from vehicle (you may have to remove other components to access the attaching bolts) and check security of outlet tube. If split or loose cut a bit off the end and re attch to outlet. If the seal on the pump shaft has been leaking and allowing water into the motor, there will be some corrosion on the inside and minimal lubrication on the bearings. You could try dismantling the pump and applying some water resistant grease to the shaft seal and bearings, but it would only be a temporary fix. Best option for this fault would be to replace the pump motor assembly.

Have an antifreeze leak but not sure where its leaking from, doesn't seem to be hoses or radiator; car leaking under what i think might be the water pump


Yep that a one that will let the job down - the seal can go - what age and has the mix been kept with glycol and inhibitor as water will erode material.
Hard to see where water is comeing from as it leaks from around the shaft behind the pully.
Quite an easy fix which is no real emergency so long as you keep topping up radiator.
Check out replacement or recon existing, the price of some water pumps new replacement makes time and parts spent on repair far too expensive.
On the larger older diesels i have experiece of - the water pump would go whilst working in the day then cause bearing failure which would allow the fan blade to carve up the radiator.
Cost then would escalate, radiator, fan blades, water pump and if you were really unlucky some of the surrounding bits. All good fun

Good luck Owen

Water leaking right by the water pump. does pump just go bad or is there another reason why it would just start leaking?


Shaft seals on the pump do go bad. Just replaced one myself. The gasket for the pump housing itself may be leaking. You have to look real hard to tell which is leaking. If you replace the pump, you'll kill both birds with one stone since you need to use a new gasket anyhow.

Losing water under water pump


It appears that the seal on the shaft of the water pump has failed and is leaking out of the drain hole that is built into the pump. The omly way to fix the leak is to replace the water pump as a complete assembly.

Ford mondeo 2002 Zetec 2.0 motor ..Have a small or slow water leak comming from front of motor behind water pump area ,above air con unit, where water hose goes into the motor ..very hard to see where it's...


Starting from the top down dab every joint and seam with kitchen paper towel. Between each dab and press examine the kitchen towel for dampness. It is vital that you find out exactly where the leak is coming from. You could be lucky and the leak might be fixed buy an extra half turn on a jubilee connector on a hose union or a quarter turn on the water pump or thermostat housing bolts. If the leak persists you may require a new gasket . If the leak is from the water pump shaft seal behind pulley you will see a tell tale stain on the 'chin' of the pump body. This will require a replacement of the pump.

Leaking coolant from crank seal on 1991 toyota sr5 4x4 pick up. i figure the water pump has a seal gone behind timing cover and no other leaks it over heated today at highway speed .


THE WATER PUMP HAS A WEAP HOLE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE HOUSING THAT INDICATES PUMP FAILURE BY LEAKING WHEN THE PUMP NEEDS REPLACING. IT IS TIME TO REPLACE THE WATER PUMP. IN ADDITION YOU MAY WANT TO REPLACE THE TIMING BELT AS WELL WHEN YOU REMOVE THE TIMING COVER AND CRANKSHAFT PULLEY. I HOPE THIS CLARIFIES ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR ANY COMMENTS YOU WISH TO SHARE. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. GOOD LUCK
