Use a pipe cleaner or a piece of wire to knock scale and dirt from the water pump weep hole.

1st and 2nd generation (every 12000 miles):

  1. From above and just in front of the alternator pulley, look down to the water pump.
  2. The weep hole is at about the 7:00 position, below and to the left of the pump shaft.

The end of the pencil is sticking into the weep hole.

3rd generation (every 15000 miles):

  1. Look on the engine fan shroud. You will see the words, "CAUTION FAN".
  2. Put your nose on the "O" and you will be looking directly at the weep hole on the right side of the pump at about the 4:00 position.

The end of the pencil is sticking into the weep hole.
