My waterpump started leaking and I have a question. I need to nurse it along for a while before the transplant but it seems like I can't put in as much as it's leaking. I've been trying to burp the system for days. Up on blocks etc. Anybody have any input I might be able to use? thx matt

If it is leaking you need to replace it ASAP. Nothing you can really do to keep driving it with no ill effects.

Replace it before you're stuck on the side of the road please.

^ What he said. Do it as soon as you can. Sometimes they will let go all at once when they are in that kind of shape.

Nice thing about tearing down to do the water pump is that you can do a whole bunch of maintenance when you are there. Hoses, belts, T-stat, coolant, etc. Then, cut your fan shroud in half before you put it all back together.

Here's a tip: Use OEM hoses AND CLAMPS!

Best,

:)
