    water pump cover gasket

    Replaced this today, I got the updated Fel-Pro gasket 35694. Wow was I ever surprised when I got the cover off and saw all this leakage! It's odd I didn't notice it was loosing any coolant, because for the longest time I did smell a slight coolant smell when I walked in front of the car. I only finally noticed the wet spot on the cover yesterday after the car sat for 2 days. I think any time I ran the engine the coolant evaporated before I could see it.

    So was the old gasket a problem with leakage like this? I hope the new design will be the end of this issue.

    The seepage from the cover gaskets seems to be minimal at best. My '97 a seepage leak there. Bough a new gasket, but the seepage was so slow that I never had to add coolant. Figured I'd wait til it was water pump time to change it. It's still hanging in the garage.

    This one finally got to the point where it was dripping... the only reason I noticed the leak was because I saw the wet spot on the trans cooler line below the water pump. I guess I'll see if this starts seeping again or not (hopefully not!).
