just a water pump question

I noticed my jeep leaking antifreeze when I shut it off. when its running it stops leaking. its dripping off the harmonic balancer. i took out the pump, but of course you wreck the gasket so I am not sure if it was a gasket problem. any one had this happen. the little seep hole on the top of the pump was'nt seeping any fluid, all the hoses look good thermostat isn't leaking. I'm kinda stumped.

2000 tj 4L

Did you reinstall the pump with a new gasket? Is it still leaking?

Anybody can take advice if it doesn't interfere with their plan.

I had a similar issue with my 2000 WJ I6 the thermostat housing where the top radiator hose attaches was eaten away at the lip and coolant was seeping out from there, I ended up replacing the housing (Autozone $10) and hose since it was soft in the area where the coolant was leaking, since you already pulled the pump I would replace the gasket and reinstall and see as mentioned above, if its still doing it check the thermostat housing.

Hope this helps

necko, I think your onto something there. But as luck would have it, the pump had a life time warrenty. so I put a new pump in, doesnt leak anymore. I did think too it might of been the gasket. The original pump started leaking at about 60,000 miles. this after market one(made in china) had about 85,000 miles on it. so i thought it was time to change the pump. so much for original equipment being better

thanks for the input

As long as its not leaking all should be well. If leaking out the weep hole the pump is bad if between the block and pump i would suspect the gasket is bad...

Good luck.
