The car keeps running hot after we have changed the thermostat and housing. There is fluid leaking from the weep hole. The car will crank and run. Do you think it is the water pump? If so, how muchdoes that usually run? We live in Rentz, GA. Hopefully, we can get this fixed.
My car has an automatic transmission.
When there is coolant leaking from the weep hole on a water pump, the seal on the water pump is damaged and no longer can hold in the coolant. I recommend replacing the water pump. The weep hole is designed to allow coolant to flow out the water pump in the event the shaft seal gives out as an indicator to replace the pump prior to the shaft seizing up.
