Help! Anti freeze leak ( not hose) name this part

Hey guys so Im driving yesterday. Hear a major squeal. Pull over belt is almost off. And leaking antifreeze everywhere. I pulled the belt off today and this spindle(4bolts) where the arrow is pointing. Leaking a lot behid the spindle. Looks like it can be replaced. Help!

Needs replacing. Not a bad fix, just needs basic tools. A new one will run you something like 60-70.

Might need to take out the aux fan and fan shroud to give yourself some room to work, then you just loosen and remove the belt, unbolt the old water pump, bolt the new one one, re-install the belt and anything else you removed for clearance and then replace whatever coolant you lose in the process.

No problem. I didn't mention this but just in case: there is a gasket between the pump and the engine, you'll need to pick up a new one along with the new pump. Should only be a few bucks but it's important.

Two things to check. First, are you sure that you reinstalled the belt correctly? If it isn't routed correctly, it can turn the pump backward, and it will NOT pump correctly. Second, did you "burp" all the air out of the system when you refilled it? These things are notoriously hard to get all the air purged out of the system. The air pockets will hit the pump, and the pump will stop pumping, as its not designed to pump air. To get the air out, you can either open a hose connection at a high point in the system, or squeeze the upper radiator hose until you stop getting bubbles in the filler neck. Just do a search; there are tons of threads on here on the subject.

Change thermostat at same time. Might as well, it is right there and only a few more bolts and a seal.

Hopefully you put the right pump in. They make them to spin both ways, depending on your belt routing, but other than that they look exactly the same. Might be the cause of your over heating if the impeller is facing the wrong way.
