if a seal is going bad, yes a water pump can leak oil. time for a new pump?
The water pump is driven off the oil pump, there's a seal between the two and when that fails oil is pushed through the water pump bearings and out the weep hole.Can you help me understand that?
The grease in the bearings has been washed out by the oil going through them. I doubt it will last long without the proper grease in the bearings.Would I need to replace the entire pump? Or can I just pull it and replace the seals? From what I read the pump should otherwise last quite a bit longer, I have 62,000 on it now.
