WATER PUMP


if the water pump is bad, it will leak from the weep hole on bottom of pump. unless the bearings seize up on pump and will not turn. you will see coolant running from bottom.

Power steering fluid leaking?


Robert, Use a strong flashlight and check from top and bottom. If you need to jack vehicle to check underneath the engine, please secure it with jack stands (don't rely on the floor jack or your vehicle's tire change jack). If you don't see evidence and have not lost any fluid then there is nothing wrong. Any visible "wetness" is acceptable as long as it is not dripping or running when engine is running. Check all your fluids and make sure it is serviced per manufacture recommendations or your owners manual. Check it again after one month, if the fluid level is fine, then the car is fine. Also place a cardboard on the floor where you park overnight and see if you have any evidence. Sometimes during oil changes, depending of filter location, droplets are common as well as from the oil pan drain plug during removal. As long as it does not elak after installation, you are fine.

I KEEP ADDING ANTIFREEZE TO MY 1994 300ZX AND IT RUNS GREAT BUT AFTER ABOUT 3 WEEKS STARTS RUNNING HOT AND IS BONE DRY AGAIN I AM NEWLY DIVORVCED AND DONT HAVE A CLUE BUT AFRAID OF GETTING RIPPED OFF


Sounds like your water pump is bad and leaking, causing it to run hot.It is recommended to get a new timing belt when replacing water pump,these prices are without timing belt change.For the dealer's price is 555.00,for repair shop is 428.00,and for you to do it is 72.00,take door number 3.

Honda dealer recomended to have the water pump and drive belt changed in my Honda CRV 2004. It has 62,000 miles on it. Can someone advise if it is true?


Unless the pump is leaking i don't recommend you spend the money, but it my bet they saw coolant stains at the shaft seal, and since a coolant leak can lead to overheating the engine the pump should be replaced any time it shows signs of leaking. A new water pump is much cheaper than a new engine by $1000's. You can do this yourself, it is very easy to replace.

I have a 2001 Taurus with the 24 valve engine. The high pressure line to the p/s pump blew a leak and my steering started to moan so I limped it home and replaced the p/s pump to be safe. I then replaced...


Your story is very strange to me

You work on your own car which is
great,even playing with a teflon gasket
trying to learn something & resolve a
problem

THEN -- you go off somewhere & talk about
a dealer & a $500 hose

WHY would a dealer even come to mind,
after the 3 year warrantee is up?

Wouldn't you buy the hose, if necessary
& replace it yourself?

Remove the fluid resevoir & check that the
internal filter isn't clogged.
That may have been your only problem

power steering fluid does NOT go anywhere near the boot.but when you fitted a new rack did you turn steering wheel fully left and right several times to prime the rack and then check the fluid.....half a quart is a lot of fluid to add to the system (change your mechanic ASAP)MY BICHON COULD DO BETTER....

My 2004 Kia Rio stopped running on me today. I tried to restart it and it just clicked. I checked all fluids, they are fine, oil was fine, no water in it. My alternator pulley is very shiny, the water pump...


I had a similar problem. Check your Fuse's or where your fuel pump it may not be getting fuel. Or like mine did the computer or ecu went dead. Take it to a dealer to see if they can figure it out if not, and later on i seriously suggest to buy a new car, Kia Rio's ****, it will break down again.
KIA= Killed. In. Action.
