IF YOU WANT TO KNOW FOR SURE WHERE THE LEAK IS COMING FROM, PRESSURE TEST THE COOLOING SYSTEM.

AUTOZONE AND OTHER MASS-MARKETERS WILL RENT YOU A PRESSURE TESTER.

YOU PERFORM THIS TEST ON A COOL ENGINE. THE COOLING SYSTEM PRESSURE CAP COMES OFF AND TEST TESTER ADAPTER IS THEN CONNECTED. YOU PUMP IT UP TO ABOUT 15-17 LBS., THEN LOOK FOR WHERE ANY DRIPPING MAY BE OCCURRING.

SOMETIMES YOU'LL FIND THAT YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE SPOT LEAKING.

WATER PUMPS ARE ALOT OF WORK TO CHANGE OUT, SO BEFORE YOU EMBARK ON THIS, BE SURE THAT'S WHERE YOUR PROBLEM IS.
