Hello. A very common concern and almost expected on earlier vehicles, the water pump is generally an easy fix. I will never recommend the use of a stop leak solution on any leak large or small. Leaks need to be fixed properly in order to keep the system functioning properly. Our mechanics here at YourMechanic would be more than happy to assist you with repair of your water pump.
