    Oil Leak from the water pump

    About a month ago I replaced the O ring on the water pump because of an oil leek, that fixed that leak but now I seem to have an oil leek from the weep hole on the water pump. There is a rubber gasket on the inside shaft of the water pump and does not seem to be replaceable, at least I don't see it when I go to a schematic to look at the water pump. So the question is, if that rubber seal is leaking, would oil come out of the weep hole. I know that when the pump goes bad, that water will come out of this hole, but what about this oil leak.

    Just a note for any that have a problem with the water pump leaking oil, you can not get the oil seal by itself, it comes along with the water pump. $220 out the door from my dealer, but they got it the next day and I'll put it on tomorrow. Wall, just maybe the water pump was ready to go out and I adjust saved myself some more problems a long way from home.m
