Q: Leaky water pump

asked by on February 22, 2016

The water pump is leaking.

The water pump seems to be a common problem with your Range Rover. If you have any type of warranty, call them to see what they require to cover the repair. If not, the cooling system will need to be tested to verify whether the pump is faulty. In that case, I recommend having a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, come out to your home or office to provide a diagnostic inspection, and replace your water pump, if deemed necessary.
