WATER PUMP LEAK

2005 Dodge Srt-10 • V10 2WD Manual • 62,000 miles

My SRT-10 has a leaking water pump and the shop wants to replace it. Won't a new gasket be a better first step?

Thanks!

Chances are the pump is leaking through the weep hole. THat indicates the bearing or internal seal is bad and a gasket will not change it.
