What would cause a leaks from behind the timing belt tensioner pulley? I have the covers and mount off to get to the water pump and checked underneath while water was poured in it came flowing out from behind that tensioner pulley. I had no signs of head gasket issues. Oil is still fine and there was no smoke
From exhaust before it stopped running.

It's a 2.0. Where is the weep hole for he water pump? When we pour water in you can clearly see it coming out from behind the tensioner pulley almost as quickly as you put it in

Well for sure at least on my engine there was a freeze plug right behind the pulley. Took pulley and found it. Water pump was also trashed. Putting it bCk together tomorrow and we shall see how it goes
