Would it be recommended to seal the weep hole on my water pump ? It started to leak and a friend of mine told me to have it welded or sealed ?

It would be like sealing your NOSTRILS, when you get a nose bleed.

The weep hole gives allows the coolant a place to escape, without destroying the bearings and locking up the pump.

Replace the pump.

In a word;
1.You always get what you pay for.
2.Usually less.
3.Never more.

This Spring I replaced a 3 year old rebuilt from AZ. Wih another rebuilt. Not from AZ but from Carquest. I could do that again for the price of a brand new Delco/Delphi whatever namebrand. Well of course plus the aggravation and 1/2 a day's life wasted replacing it. Then again a rebuilt can outlast oem by a decade if you're lucky, so everything I've said amounts to no help at all.
