Water Pump Gasket Related Repair Advice

  • If the water pump gasket is leaking, the water pump should be replaced along with the leaking gasket
  • When replacing the water pump or gasket, the drive belts may need to be removed. The belts should be replaced if they show signs of wear.
  • The entire cooling system—including all of the coolant hoses and fittings, radiator, coolant fan(s), and fan clutch (if equipped)—should be inspected when replacing the water pump or gasket
  • To help prevent future issues, we recommend replacing the thermostat when the cooling system has been opened for repairs (e.g. water pump or radiator replacement) or during a system flush
