Question about Cooling System for Kia Rio

1 Answer

Weep hole Few monts ago, I installed an electric water pump. Now, the Weep hole of the water pump is starting to leak. I don't want to remove or replace the old water pump. I would like to block the weep hole. I look the the water pump specs to know where is located the weep hole and it it's like if the weep hole is returning the coolant inside the motor and it leaking somewhere else. Do you know where is located the end of of the hole?

2001 2500 silverado 6.0 where is the weep hole?


It is the water pump, i would buy a new thermostat also, you can buy a water pump that comes with a new stat and housing, that is the best way i think and that is the way i do them.

These water pumps are big looking but are very easy to replace, i will tell you that when they leak it is very, very hard to see the weep hole, the area you say yours is leaking is the pump so sure, this waterpumps leak at the mating gasket where the pump meets the block or weep hole, any way it is the waterpump.

you will see the new one , how they put the weep hole it flows through the housing to leak out when bad but hard to see.

hope this is helpful.

2005 grand cherokee squealing and loss of coolant


Check belt tension, squeeling is most likely due to belt slippage. Have you noticed any fluid leaking from under your Jeep? Coolant level drop could be from bad water pump, when the pump needs replacing, water flows out of a "weep hole". It could be leaking onto your belt also, causing it to squeel

Slow Leak in Water Pump-1999 Plymouth Voyager


What's probably happening is the weep hole on the water pump is leaking water. The weep hole is a warning sign that the water pump needs replaced. You don't have any heat because the impeller in the water pump is no longer circulating water.

Water pump is leaking, can i just replace seal on a honda cbr 400 rr 1988 model.


Not really!
The leaking (weep-hole) is purposely put in the water-pump to warn you that the water pump is defective.
You have to replace the water-pump together with new gasket.

1. Drain the coolant into a container by opening the radiator cap, and the drain-plug under it.
2. Remove the water-pump hose and the bolts .
3. Put in place the new water-pump with new gasket.
4. Reverse removal procedure for installation.
5. Start engine and check for leaks.

Water is leaking from the little nozzle behind the water pump - how to fix


Water pumps have a vent or "weep" hole. If any coolant is coming out of the weep hole, the water pump is defective and will have to be replaced. Best wishes.

GE smartwater R.O. system leaking out weep hole


Same exact problem started for us last night. (Same model, installed by me about four+ years ago) Water was really coming out of the weep hole, and didn't stop until I shut it off at the valve. This happened once before, and all I had to do was clean the drain line adapter, because it gets full of gunk from the disposal over time. But this time that did not do the trick. (Plus there was not all that much gunk this time....) So I was baffled for awhile but came up with this solution.

I hooked up a small length of clear tubing to my cheap-o tire inflater/air compressor. Put the clear tube against the weep hole. Turned on the compressor, and VOILA!, a bunch of gunk that was clogging the drain tube came out. I think when this tube, or the drain line adapter gets clogged, it causes water to go out the weep hole instead of down the drain. (If you don't have a small compressor, then theoretically there is enough air pressure from something like a bicycle pump, and this solution *might* work with one of those. But if you try this, of course only use the DOWNWARD (air-going-outward) pump action...pulling up (inward) would force the clog deeper up the drain tube)

No, what you're seeing is the weep hole leaking on the water pump. This is the warning sign that the water pump is worn out. Don't use any stop leak or anything to attempt to stop it. You'll be waisting your time. You'll have to replace water pump at this point.
