Put antifreeze in and it leaks drivers side under car behind water pump are there water hoses there


On the water pump there is a weep hole when the pump fails they tend to leak out of the weep holes. Its also possible the water pump seal failed too. On this car the timing belt drives the water pump. If you drive on it and the pump locks up. You will be replacing the motor or the whole top end of the engine due to bent valves. Its time to replace the water pump and timing belt. Then you will be good to go again. So do not drive it for the sake of saving your engine. I'd tow it in to the shop or replace the belt and pump yourself.

How can you tell if your water pump is even working


Water pumps FYI

A belt drives your water pump, most are the same belts that turn your altenator and air compressor. Some water pumps are turned by the timing belt. But if you can see that your belt is working the water pump, altenator and compressor, its working. If you had a water pump powered by a timing belt, you would not be able to start your car if that belt stoped.

Water pumps never stop working, they are direct shaft driven.

The only thing is they do start to leak after they get older, then need replacing.

Leaking coolant.. its hard to see where it is coming from.. it leaks out heavily when car is cranked,, it looks like it is comin from right behind the belt drive (the bigger one) is that the water pump?


This does sound like your water pump is leaking, or your head gasket has busted on the outside edge. I would check the water pump first, as it is fairly common for the seal to bust and leak coolant from the water pump.

Wont hold water. big hose on the bottom of the radiator attaches 2 the engine and it leaks right out of the engine underneath that hose...


Well, if that Radiator hose is not leaking, then the Water pump seals have gone bad. More than likely you need a new water pump.

Vehicles w/ Timing Belt Driven Water Pumps Should Always Have The Water Pump Replaced When The Timing Belt Is Replaced.

If you do not, then the Timing Belt will fail, turning a low cost repair into thousands because of valve train damages. . .

I have a leak of antifreeze under the car and am thinking it might be the water pump leaking. Where is the water pump located on a 2001 chevy cavalier Z24?


whichever side of the motor you see the drive belts on.

Ford puts theirs on the passenger side but I see gm stuff on the drivers side too.

pop the hood and look for the drive belts. It is either drivin by one of these belts OR off the timing belt under the timing belt cover.

Water Leaking from belt side of engine on a 1996 Camry.


hi, is it just water? or does it look more like coolant? if just water, and seems to only leak when a/c or defrost is used, this would likely be the evaperator drain tube letting moisture out. this is normal. but if looks like coolant(reddish pink, or possibly green) this likely means you have a leaking water pump. the water pump is driven by timing belt which is located behind the timing cover directly behind the drive belts. if/when you go to get it repaired, the timing belt should be replaced at the same time. also, you may want to have the timing belt tensioner, and timing belt pulleys relpaced at this time as well, it's good insurance for any repairs that may be needed later down the road after service. make sure to have the drive belts checked when repairing timing belt, they will be removed during repair, if they need to be replaced due to wear, re-install new ones at no extra labor charge.

Changing water pump 2000 ford focus


Changing a water pump is pretty basic. Since the coolant system is a closed system you only need to be concerned with that system. For instance you since you have to mess around with it anyway you might as well change the thermostat and flush the coolant system. Make sure your radiator hoses are in good shape and that's about it.
If you have basic mechanical skills and tools you will have no problem replacing a water pump.


As far as information with the actual replacement there are a number of experts here including myself that could explain how to do it.
However no matter how good our explanations are it just can't compare to a good repair manual.
A repair manual for your car at Auto Zone would likely cost between $12 and $15. It is a great investment if you are going to keep your car for any length of time. When you sell, it shows the buyer you took the time to maintain and repair it right.
I personally like Haynes Manuals.
I hope this helps.
