Pull off the transmission skid plate and inspect the transmission pan, as it is covered you can not see the transmission pan. I just discovered a leaking sensor, that made it look like the pan gasket failed, but it was actually a sensor at the top of the transmission.



This was fixed under warranty, but note the part is $50.00 (new sensor) and the labor is 3 to 5 hours, as half of the transmission needs to be disassembled. it also requires a new transmission pan gasket as well........ as the primary and secondary valve bodies are removed during the repair.

Not usually - it leaks pink coolant around your pulleys and you are constantly filling the coolant up. Its not really the failure of the pump, its a bad seal that causes coolant to leak out.

Look inside your engine in this area - you will probably need a flash light. If it has been happening for a while look for a build up of pink coolant here. There should be no coolant at all.




Coolant tends to leak out of the air hole

No..... there is not a TSB.

I believe it applied to most 2008 - 2009 before the part was revised with a design change in 2010.

In the service manual there is simply a provision to inspect and replace if a leaking condition is found

"Visually check the air hole and drain hole for coolant leakage.
If leakage is found, replace the water pump"

There is no recall, or even a technical data sheet other than what the service manual lists above.
