Q: Water pump may be broken

asked by on

I think the water pump either blew the gasket, seal, or hose.

Hi. It sounds like your water pump, or perhaps another part of the vehicle, may be leaking. It would be best to have a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, pressure test the vehicle to determine where the leak is coming from, so that the appropriate repair can be made.
