OOPS It should read my new water pump!
It is leaking on the under side of the snout.Where that little hole is,I think it's a drain hole for something???
I dont know what that little is called but they all have it.The car ran fine today two short drives.Got home from a 10min drive.Parked the car and it started to leak from the hole?
It leaks mostly when the car is off.
Any idea's is a bad pump!
Not even sure if this brand has a warranty?

I need to find a more realaxing hobbie.

Scoop that hole is there to tell you when your seal is shot.When I was young and poorer I thought why not just plug the hole with silicone.It worked great for a while until the bearing seized and the shaft snapped off,putting my brand new clutch fan through my brand new three core rad Anyways change the pump.

Thats what I thought it was too.But was hoping some how it would go away.
Think it will be ok to drive it to the trans shop and back.It's about a 5 mile drive each way.

Yup, sorry to say that the water pump is pooched , luckily it is an easy and cheap fix, change it before you take the car to the shop.

I ordered a chrome pump so I don't think I'll get a new from them before Monday.At least thats one thing I can fix.

Scoop,

Don't do any sky-diving or bungee jumpin' this week.
To just be safe I'd even stay away from bowling.
If you take a bath...get out of the tub before you pull the plug.
