Default waterpump?????

Hey guys one day i noticed my car was leaking coolant i found it to be out of the lower radiator hose on the right side which goes into the water pump. So i toook it of and reattached it that fixed the problem for a while but now it started doing it again when i was at subaru not to long ago i was told it was leaking and going bad. If its totally bad would it leak like real bad like pour out or is that jus the hose lose again.

It likely gets progressively worse as its failing. But you say it stopped recently when you replaced a hose?

If it's not coming from the hose....it's definitely the water pump. Look at it closely and see if it's leaking above the hose.

I had to replace a water pump on a 92 Legacy when the gasket started leaking. It would only leak occasionally though.

I believe the water pump has a little "weep hole" which will start to leak coolant as the water pump is failing. If there is coolant coming out, it is time to change the pump...

P.S. If the pump seizes up it can damage the timing belt, and cause a much bigger headache, so don't put it off too long.

BigMattyD is on point here. Depending on milage, you may just want to bite the bullet and do your water pump and your timing belt.

Cheers,
Ryan

Yea, unless you just changed the belt, its not worth it to go in without changing it.
