1999 Toyota Corolla
My daughter overheated and drove for a few miles
I don't notice oil mixed with coolant looked like it
was leaking from the bottom of the water pump I
replace the water pump and I still see a leak
coming from the bottom of the water pump
possibly coming out one of the bolts timing chain
cover do you think it might be the head gasket?
Appreciate any feedback
Did you change the gasket on the water pump? Is it coming out the neck extension off the intake? Not sure if your corollahas this? My sienna has this and would leak antifreeze if intake gasket was bad on side of timing belt.
It has oring which I changed and timing chain not belt......thanks for reply
How well did you clean surface of water pump mating area on engine? Did you do the proper torque on pump nuts? They are not much like 70 inch pounds. Look them up don't take what I said. I just know they are about 15 foot lbs.
There is a product when put into the coolant will show up florescent when hit with a light you should see the origin of the leek. after you wipe it all down the best you can it should give you a good idea where its coming from.
