Coolant Leak on Decline

My 01 leaks coolant on declines but not any on inclines, or a noticable amount. My driveway is on a decline on the turn around after about 2 hours, there is a puddle about 10" diameter. Fast dripping. I put it backwards, now an incline, and no dripping. Any thoughts? thanks!

Thanks for the quick response! What's a weap hole and then why wouldn't it leak on decline? Or could it just be a leak in the front of the pump? Is there a way to test it? I drove it 2 hours a few days ago without overheating

If it leaks steadily on decline why don't you park on decline get a mirror and a flashlight and follow leak to its source? No need for dies and doo dads!

That is where the weap hole is located. I can't explain what it does but that is a notorious spot for leaks.

Weep hole is just a tattle tale for your waterpump seal. All you can do is replace waterpump before it becomes a major issue. I just bought one from dieselsite.com for mine haven't installed yet but there are quite a few right ups on how to do it. Here's a link to dieselsite: http://www.dieselsite.com/1996-2003f...waterpump.aspx
