Water Pump....Eeech..

Hey yall, I have had nothiing but bad luck this year with my truck. First a pilot bearing that blasted off to the moon and now my water pump appears to be leaking. I developed a leak "near" the water pump about a week ago when it was around -20 outside, damn cold. Anyway is the seal around the pump prone to going south or do you think it might be cracked, the pump itself that is? I am going to take a much closer look at i this weekend. I was hoping it was just a hose but after my first analysis of it the hoses seem in great condition. Well any insight would be good. Thanx all... Wayne

Might as well and just change to water pump! It's pretty cheap for a new one. And easy to replace just have to take off the serp. belt and one or two brakets.

That's all that has to come off huh? I was anticipating having to pull the radiator and all to get at er'. I will be doing that then if that is what it is, I am sure it's the pump. Thanx for your info., great help...

There's no need to remove the radiator. Just drain the coolant out then remove the brakets, serp. belt.
