Default The Weep hole.

Is it there to tell you that your water pump has a leaky seal or something? I mean why else drill a HOLE in a water pump? Like a way to tell you your water pump may go out soon? How long have you guys been able to make it on a WP that seeps a little thru the weep hole? Mine doesn't do it all the time, only after 60 or so miles down the freeway and only then does it drip about a cup of water then quits.

I'm not sure, but I think that's for freeze-relief.


Never heard of a water pump NOT fail soon after the weep hole started up.

I just noticed it when I went on a longer drive about two weeks ago. Then and now it only leaks a little bit then stops. And the truck runs real cool.

Ya what those guy's said. The weephole is designed to let water out when the pump is shot, I don't know how it works but basically every waterpump I have ever seen is designed like that, on chevy's fords and dodges. if yours just weeps a bit it is being nice generally they go from not letting anything out to draining the entire cooling system onto the road in about 10 feet.
