    Should I worry?

    Seen this by the water pump, I believe..... should I take heed?
    It’s a ‘16 with about 40K miles... thoughts?

    I’ll probably clean the engine bay & give a few tugs on the bolts....keep an eye on it for about another 250 - 500 miles or so..

    Had to have my hood repainted for corrosion around that same time.

    Well I’m going to get another water pump ‘just in case’ and throw it on the shelf.....The next question is: what brand? Mopar oem or Gates?

    Most likely it was the spot around the hood latch. They did piss poor prep and treatment where the dissimilar metals meet and they all corrode around the latch.

    I would wipe it down with a towel, then drive it and check in a couple of hours.

    Maybe it rained really hard, and some water got in through the hood scoop?

    Why? It's not the water pump. If you want to spend money, get a gasket.
