should i replace the water pump or just the hose?
I have a 2005 Pontiac grand am , my thermostat was sticking and eventually
went out. my freeze plug popped wich i replaced. also replaced thermostat .
now water pump hose is spraying belt system. with very minor leakage but it
doesnt seem like enough for there to be a hole in the pump itself.
There usually is a weep hole in the bottom of the water pump shaft once the bearing fails, it leaks coolant. If it is leaking, replace it, pumps are cheap. I'd replace the hoses too.
Thanks Tom,im looking into purchasing the ACDelco 252-693 Water Pump Kit. that should include hoses correct?
not sure, I use rockauto.com for my parts. Might be cheaper?
no..but replace all hoses and you will be good to go again..
Do you know where I could purchase the hoses Kelly ?
www.rockauto.com or any local auto parts store.
I've replaced my water pump and now my engines idling low . What should I do?
