96 Seville SLS Water pump

Recommended Posts

i replaced my water pump on my seville almost 3 years ago. ive noticed recently the smelling of burining anit-freeze when i get out of my car. is this a cause for concern for my water pump? im curious because i got thepump under warranty and im thinking it is it. some help would be much appreciated. do water pumps usually go in 3 years???

I would look and see where the antifreeze is coming from. It could be the water pump again, but take a look and see where it is wet. I thought mine was going again because I smelled antifreeze, but looked and found out that my radiator cap had worked itself loose a little....a relief!!!

Look for signs of a leak. Most likely, it's the water pump cover seal. It may have a burr or nick in it.
