Colant leak on a V8 water pump?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I noticed i had a coolant leak on my 3.5 V8 last week and it looked like it was coming from the water pump gasket, so removed the water pump cleaned up the faces and resealed the pump, however its still leaking. After closer inspection it appears to be coming from a hole (which is cast into the water pump housing) on the under side of the shaft of the water pump, ill try to post a photo later. Can anyone shed any light as to why it is coming from here and what i need to do to stop it leaking, my mot is due on monday so need to get it sorted asap.

Water coming out of the hole means that the seal has failed. New pump I'm afraid.

I had an inckling that was going to be the answer but wasn't 100% so thanks for confirming it.
