Cool Coolant Leak Behind Water Pump

1994 Sidekick

How do you get to the seal or "o" ring that the water pump bolts too? That seams to be where the leak is coming from.

Does anyone have a diagram of the front of the motor, in case I have to take it a part?

Thanks,
Rawben (for Dh)

i believe that your talking about that round tube that goes beside the block behind the water pump. there is one bolt that holds that to the side of the block. its kinda hard to get to with the intake there but if you remove that steel brace that goes from the intake to the motor mount it will be easier to see it. take that bolt out then take that tube out. If it has not been out in a long time it will be hard to get out. take your time but it will come out. then change that o ring that is in there. hope this helps i dont have any pics that would help you sorry.

That engine looks soooo ugly. I hope its a 16v and not an 8v 94'. Sometimes the water pump o-ring fails and they need to be replaced. Hopefully it may just be the connecting line that failed and not the pump.
