I just re-sealed the water pump that I got last year on my jeep. But when I turn my car off it still leaks!! It did not leak right after it was done but now it is a week later and it is starting again, only not as much this time.

If I put too much coolant in does it drip some out to keep it level? Pls let me know. It is an 1989 Cherokee Pioneer with a closed cooling system.

The closed system is just that...closed, so it should not leak or weep. If you can eliminate the pump as the culprit, the first thing I would suspect is the plastic pressure bottle...it's notorius for developing leaks on the closed system.

Long term, you might also want to look into converting it to an open system. It's a drop in swap and it eliminates a lot of the problems that the closed systems have.
