water was leaking out of a "weeping" hole on the water pump. This part was not very expensive. The part was equally not that difficult to replace, 9 bolts- and time. local santee shop quotes $365 for parts and labor.

Told when taking in for another problem on this web page (transmission pressure control solenoid failure) that had cracked water pump. Found in process of diagnosing transmission. Denied repair, decided to find someone else to do it for less. Two months out of warranty. Never fails!
