  • The car water pump serves to keep your car's engine from running hot. It circulates a mixture of water and coolant through the engine. If the water pump leaks, it is '05 C230 Kompressor Sport Coupe I have a significant leak from around vacuum pump for brake system attached at rear of engine to the camshaft. I have been told it is a Water Pump – Are you looking for one? Best information on where to find the best water pump.


    4. If the leaking keeps on after 100 miles, THEN you probably have a defective water pump. This is the only true sign of a 'defective' water pump vs leaks that are due to improper surface prep or installation errors. If the weep plug is leaking there will be corrosion and leakage around and under this small silver disc. Call us for immediate warranty replacement.

    My coolant was low last year and I simply added distilled water. I have been monitoring the level every month since adding it, and did not notice any change in the level. I don't see any pink coolant anywhere at the bottom, but is there any way to check for a little leakage, without moving the hoses out of the way? I just want to be cautious.
