2.5 Coolant leak help
« on: Feb 09, 19, 22:16 »
Noticed my temp light flash up yesterday, reservoir was low on coolant. Upon further inspection, I noticed my alt, and a/c comp and belt were wet. Looks like the coolant is coming from behind the passenger side motor mount and dripping on the belt. My guess is water pump seal, or weep hole. I bought a new pump and new belt, going to tackle this tomorrow night. Anyone here experience this? Also Ive watched the DIY vid on youtube, I'm giving myself 4h. Should I be checking/changing anything else while I am there? Thanks

Should also replace all the plastic coolant pieces if they havenít been done already
