Make: GMC, model: Yukon XL 1500 (2WD), year: 2002, mileage: 74,000, engine size: 5.3L V8.
Car Pros, I was recently under my truck changing the transmission fluid when I noticed that the engine had a somewhat clear oily leak coming from the front of the engine block. The liquid appears to be coming from the weep hole of my water pump, but I am concerned that the leaking fluid is more of a clear machine oil and not coolant. Does this sound as if my water pump is failing or could there be another problem at hand? Currently the engine does not run hot and the coolant level is not low.
If the water pump needs to be replaced, is this something that a novice could do or do you recommend that I take this to a shop for repair. I have access to garage tools so any estimate on how long I should set aside to complete the repair?
Thanks for your assistance.
have the same problem?
