My water system isn't flowing correctly and the temp is going up. I first noticed fluid coming out of from around the water pump seal two days ago.


If your pump is leaking replace it first, the pump or seal around it should not be leaking, and as cheap as you can get a new pump I say change it.

HI:

I am wondering if the noise he has heard is the pump cavatating due to the air in the system.

If there are truly leaks, yes get that done 1st.

Getting these burped is worse than a small child.
You got a baby and plenty of experience Greg, this will all come to pass. Wink

Hi Greg:

So, it boiled down to a bleed issue?
(no pun intended.........)

I still need to reinstall the thermostat, and the new water pump is not leaking. Lots of air bubbles for sure!

Happy Greg

If you havent already fixed the issue maybe this will help if so maybe someone else. It helps to jack the car up on one side or in your case front or rear to assist the air out of the engine. Or park the car on a sloped driveway.

I would say it's air, but in case it's not you can always get another great water pump here. Hope this works out for you.

once air get to the impeller flow will stop. see if you are pumping fluid by
the radiator heating up as the engine is running. it will be hot at the top, then the heated fluid will move downward. that is normal. if there is no flow. let it cool down and open the line on top of the engine. run a small tube down the open line as far as you can to get to the pump. when the tube hits the air pocket, it will escape.

i once had a warped cylinder head and steam was being generated from the leak. pumping stopped and the radiator never warmed up, indicating
there was no flow.
