Undercounter r/o water filter vacuum


Water flowing past a hole (or connection) in a pipe will cause a vacuum at that connection. Is there water flowing anywhere else in the system?

R/o faucet weep hole has a vacuum issue


Try installing a check valve, or back-flow preventer. Also try getting all the air out of filters, they may have a purge valve or small screw to remove air from system.

Water leaking from front of oil pan


Very likely coming from the weep hole in the water pump, and dribbling down front of engine.
The weep hole is usually on the hidden side (back) of water punp and not easily seen. follow the trickle.
When water pump begins to leak like that, it means the bearing are wearing, and the seal is giving out as consequense. It will steadliy get worse. Verify the source of leak and replace the water pump if indicated..

2010 Intrepid leaking fluid (not oil) from rear end coming from above the muffler inner side?


First thing I would do is make sure that the fluid you are seeing is not brake fluid but I suspect you would notice a spongy brake pedal. If not then it sounds like what you are seeing is probably water leaking out of the weep hole in the muffler. Modern day catalytic convertors are designed to reduce the emissions coming from the engine into carbon dioxide and water before it leaves the tail pipe. Occasionally this water will condense inside the muffler and leak out of the weep hole. What you are witnessing is most likely normal operation for the vehicle.

Coolant leaking on drivers side? have replace resevior and wateroutlet


Sounds very much like a water-pump.

Look for a leak below the water pump.
If so we believe the inter seal of the water pump to be the failure, this will result in a coolant weep coming from the weep hole near the center shaft of the water pump.

RECOMENDATION:
Replace the water pump.

We hope this tip guides to to your solution.

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)

GE smartwater R.O. system making noise from hole on side of fauce


Probably some gunk clogging the drain line. First step would be to remove the drain line from underneath the sink and check to see that it is clear. If it isn't, the next thing that may happen is when it gets completely clogged, water will start shooting out of the weep hole. As an added measure< i would say to force compressed air down the weep hole to clean out any clog in the line that you can't reach.
