Alright sounds good. And yeah I suppose I could but I don't have a big enough garage and it gets dark at like 5:30 or 6 now so it would be a pain. Plus school don't get out until 2:55 so yeah... it would be a rush.

You can not see it in the picture but the weep hole is right above where my finger is pointing. Check to see if you have any gunk coming out. I mean fresh gunk to.

There is the seat.

Take the hose off as well as the fan cover to gain easier access to the seep hole.

Now I must clean that mess up. When you do it use a no spill funnel!!!!!!

----------

If you do check your weep hole and it is leaking that means that your water pumps seal has a booboo. If you're still set on that it is a water pump which it does sound like you probably have a bad impeller or as i call them spinny distributor thing. those are really the only two things that can go wrong with a water pump and the latter is hard to do. The aforementioned timing belt you should bring to someone more qualified with engines as if you mess it up you'll mess up your crank and you don't want to rebuild now do you?

Me no see a water pump... The water pump connects the accessory belt. To change it you need to spend about 3-5 hours of work.

Top. If you look at the front of the pump sticking out just follow the top back and it's going to be offset BARELY to the left. It's going to be a black little hole maybe 5/16ths.

It's a hole designed to let you know if your seal has broke in the pump itself. If you do see coolant you'll have a confirmed bad pump.
