Indicators for bad water pump?
For the past couple of nights after I get home and out of the car I smell a little coolant.
So last night I looked down under the car and there is indeed coolant on the ground, but only a bit. I checked the hoses and they were fine.
Now I've heard that with a bad water pump it could start leaking, is this true? and does it only leak when the car is running?
Keep in mind, it is a slow leak and after I park the car it stops leaking. And the car isn't overheating.
Thanks for all help!
Whats the difference between eating an egg and the whole chicken?
