A water pump is only like $40 and shouldn't take any longer than an hr.

So yeah. Just do it.

Waterpump is one of the easiest jobs to tackle on S chassis.

We have RWD engine configuration, it's STUPID easy.

Get a new thermostat while you're at it.

the water is coming out of the weep hole to let you know that the bearing is shot.... water gets through the bearing when they go out and out of the weep hole to indicate that its now time for a new pump
