Hi all,
i have been losing coolant lately so I had a look under my car (1996 EF I6), and i found coolant leaking from what looks like a round hole in the bottem of the water pump. i am wondering what the hell the round hole is for, and what does this mean, what will need to be fixed?
thanks for your help

That hole is there to allow any coolant that does get past the seal to drain away. It means that you have a bearing and or seal starting to fail.

Get a new pump, or do what I did to the XF, dump a couple of cans bars stop leak into it, stopped it for about 2 years, then she really stuffed up, and when stopped would loose half the water, so I replaced it.

Morale, buy a new one and fit it, it really is worth the effort :0)
