hi

replaced radiator other week and still using a little water but nowhere near like before and went out with a torch to see for leak and found a small bit of dried up coolant under the water pump as when you put your fingers under the pump dried green stuff is on your fingers.

whats the chance its the water pump gasket or pump will pressure check it

for a leak that small whats chance of bars leak or a stop leak you put straight into coolant will work until its fixed

Replace the water pump.

Stick Bars Leak etc in and you will block the cooling system.

If you need to stick something in there, use a teaspoon of powdwerd black pepper.

Use pepper and keep an eye on your water level each morning if you need to wait 2 weeks.

Ended up replacing pump filled to minimum ran on fast idle with cap just sitting there so air gets out then when cool have to top up to max

Old water pump was corroded inside too and there was a leak under it where gasket is so what's chance it was that leaking
