question: to buy some time, can i plug up (seal) the weep hole to prevent further coolant loss/seepage or will this do damage (like forcing water into the oil sump)?
My bearing is fine, there's no noise or looseness, just coolant seeping from the weep hole.
Has anyone done this? how long with it last? any comments?
I just want to buy some time.

If it has quite a few miles on it and it is leaking badly then the chances are it needs a new seal but it would be false economy to replace just the seal and not the bearing.

I had a friend who a small leak from the drain that he ran for two years before he got around to getting it replaced.
Don't panic it may bed in, give it a chance
