Sure sounds like the bearing on the pump is bad and letting the water leak out the hole in pump front. Hope this helps.

1989 Chevy S10 Blazer 4.3L V6 Automatic: Massive coolant leak occurred after letting truck sit for about 30 minutes after running it for around 1 hour. Coolant steadily flowed from what appears to be on...

Check the bottom side of the water pump for wetness, as well as the lower radiator hose. The water pump if leaking, will run the coolant down the front of the motor,and can appear to be coming from the top of the oil pan. It is nearly impossible for the top of the oil pan to leak coolant.

Leaking water from front of oil pan

check the seal around your water pump and also the radiator hoses. more than likely you have a leaking water pump. look for signs of coolant on the serpentine belt and keep a close eye on your coolant level.

I cannot slide out/remove oil bottom pan of my 1990 cadillac fleetwood front drive engine. something like a oil strainer is blocking.

What you have there is the oil pump pick up tube. It does indeed have a small screen on the bottom end.

To get the pan out, you can either disconnect motor mounts and raise engine up, or try to access the bolts holding the pick up tube to the bottom of the oil pump.

If there is sufficient space between the pan and the bottom of the block, I'd try to remove the pick up tube if I were you.

Be sure to thoroughly clean the gasket surface on the mating flange of the pick up tube and the oil pump.

A air leak at this point, after re-installation would be a really bad day for you.

The pump would be unable to pull enough (if, in fact, any) oil from the pan to properly lubricate the engine.

Sounds like you reasonably well understand what you're doing, so I won't belabor the point about making sure the gasket surface is cleaned.

Good luck!

Can you tell me how to replace timing chain on a 1966 impala

The best way is to pull the motor out. The timing chain cover needs to come off of the front of the motor (behind the water pump) and this can be done with the motor in the car. The problem comes when you try to put the cover back on. There is a seal that fits in a groove on the bottom of the timing cover. The seal will not let the cover go back into place without damaging the seal. The oil pan needs to be dropped down and then the timing cover goes into place. The oil pan goes on after the timing cover is in place. Any other way will result in premature failure of the timing cover to oil pan seal. If you have enough room under the car and can remove the oil pan, that will work also. I hope this helps.

ANTIFREEZE leaking down off oil pan. I do not see any from water pump?

If your hoses are intact, it still may be the water pump. When the seals fail, there is a small diameter hole at the bottom of the pump which will start to seep so it just answers to gravity and the oil pan is the lowest part.

How do I remove oil pump on 2000 Plymouth voyger

The oil pump removal procedure for Plymouth Voyager 2000.
A oil pump is usually located in the oil pan. If you want to change the oil pump and replace it with a new one, roll up your sleeves and get ready for some dirty work.
The procedure to remove oil pump is as follows:--
  • Drive your vehicle up onto ramps or lifts so you have room to work as you pull out the oil pump. You could also use a jack, but make sure you brace the front wheels so they don't roll. In addition, set the emergency break firmly into position so the car doesn't roll.
  • Remove the engine front cover then drain the engine oil and take out the oil pan. It is under the engine and looks like the bottom of the motor.
  • Unscrew the oil pump mounting bolts with a wrench and proceed to remove the oil pump itself by pulling it down and out of the engine. Avoid getting any contaminants into the oil pump assembly while removing.
The Water pump removal procedure for Plymouth Voyager 2000.
The water pump is the heart of the Plymouth Voyager's cooling system, circulating the coolant. When the water pump is faulty, it can cause serious damage to the engine of your Plymouth Voyager.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.Place a drain pan underneath the radiator. When the engine is cool, drain the cooling system from the radiator into the pan.
  • Remove the right inner splash shield and the accessory drive belts. Support the engine underneath and remove the right motor mount with the bracket.
  • Take off the front cover and remove the timing belt along with the timing belt idler pulley. Also remove the camshaft sprockets, the rear cover to the timing belt and the alternator with its bracket.
  • Loosen and remove the bolts to the water pump and remove it from the engine.Install the new water pump after inserting a new o-ring gasket. Tighten the bolts to 105-inch lbs. Make sure that the pump can move freely by rotating it by hand.
  • Replace all components in reverse order. Tighten the camshaft sprocket bolts to 75 foot pounds and the timing belt idler pulley to 45 foot pounds.
  • Refill the cooling system with coolant and reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check for leaks when it reaches normal operating temperatures.

Loud noises coming from the cooling system could be a sign that your water pump needs replacing. A leak in the coolant may also be an indicator. You can expect that a water pump will need to be changed every 70 to 100 thousand miles or so in a Plymouth Voyager vehicle.
Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
