Q: Replace water pump

asked by on

leaks antifreeze badly

My car has 84351 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. If your vehicle is leaking antifreeze, especially at the water pump, then I would stop driving the vehicle and get it repaired as soon as possible. An engine leaking at the water pump is likely to overheat quickly, which can leave it susceptible to serious engine damage. If you need help with this repair, a professional from YourMechanic can replace your water pump at your home or office.
