Water Pump..when to change it out before it blows?


I've read alot of posts about water pumps and them going bad.

What do you recommend to watch/listen for to indicate a pump is reaching its last mile.

On one of your posts I read the Weep hole seeping is a relief port for pressure as temperature changes in the coolant.

Mine seeps just a bit each time the engine cools down. Would excessive seeping be an indicator?

Thanks, Brian

PS. Is your shop open yet ?

That seeping is a good indication that the seal is worn out. It is a good indication to use when making the determination to change it out - it is time.
