LEAKING

1998 Chevrolet Lumina • 206,000 miles

Car was overheating so removed the thermostat still overheating replaced water pump now its leaking. Bad gasket. Made gasket put water pump back on. No leaking took for test drive. Hit the gas water sprays. Removed water pump AGAIN gasket sealer looked burnt and bubbled on bottom. HELP getting super frustrated. Someone mentioned a timing cover gasket kit or a water pump housing kit?

You should presure test the system to see where the leak actually is.

Autozone rents pressure testers for this exact application.

If you rent one let us kow where the leak looks like it coming from.
