My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Using a small, articulated (flexible) inspection mirror (just an inch or so of mirror is all you need), and adequate bright lighting, attempt to view the weep hole (about 1/8 inch diameter hole) on the bottom of the water pump behind the pulley. A tiny bit of water is allowed to come from that hole, every now and then, but if it is obvious that water is "streaming" from the hole, that signifies the pump will have to be replaced. To request replacement of the pump (with no diagnostic fee), please simply use YourMechanic’s water pump replacement service page. Once on that page, please click on "Get a Quote" and enter your vehicle information (year, make, model). If the leak is not at the water pump weep hole, and you cannot otherwise identify the leak origin, please instead use YourMechanic’s coolant leak diagnostic service page and the responding certified mechanic will come to your location, get the leak identified and repair it. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
