2008 /dodge Chgr replacec thermo & housing unit, resevoir, radiator. It's leaking in the front. Do I replace waterpump?

Asked by Jun 02, 2017 at 04:45 AM about the 2008 Dodge Charger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

replaced radiator, reservoir, thermostat & housing unit. Water leaking from front center but it's not the radiator.  Must I replace the water pump if it is the weep hole?  Is weep hole repairable? This is just recently.  Previously I've had to replace camber caster, thermostat & housing unit, relay switch, repair electrical wiring, struts, etc.  Car has sucked me dry.  I know that based on the VIN # this model came off the assembly line a lemon.  I was contacted by an attorney via my Vin #, but he was unable to get Chrysler to work with me because after my warranty expired I did not take my car to their service center.  My mechanic drives a Dodge Avenger and he is a retired master mechanic.  Help! I'm thinking about writing to the president of Chrysler Fiat.

To answer your question, no the weep hole is not repairable, the pump has to be replaced with a new water pump.
