Most water pumps have a small vent hole on the bottom side of the pump. Inspect with a flashlight and check for staining (rust or color changes left behind after water runs away from the vent) related directly with that vent hole. Also check for play (side to side) in the input shaft (belt pulley or fan pulley Either of these conditions is an indication of a failed or failing water pump.
it could be your power steering pump. check your fluid level, then also check to see your not leaking any fluid.
It has expanded as far as it can inside of the engine so it has to go somewhere! See if you have enough anti frez ( what till the engine cools down first ) or make sure if the mixture of water/anti frez is correct 30% water to 70% anti freeze . Check your thermostat. If the coolant is coming out of a weep-hole on your water pump, pump is bad. Check the hose clamps, soft hoses. plug up radiator, heater core. Even if you have had service done on your car, you may have and air pocket in your system, they didn't burp the system right, take it back. also make sure the antifreeze, "if a mix yourself fluid" has distilled water mixed with it. distilled water has a higher boiling rate than water with impurities, thus preventing boil out.
The radiator cap might need replacing.
Put thermostat in cold water on stove top. Turn on burner and when water begins to boil you should see it open if it is functional. Then prepare to be yelled at by your wife for doing it.
Check your master cylinder, if it is still full or even partially full after you have tried the brake pedal several times, it's probably the master cylinder. if either side of cylinder reservoir is empty then you have a leak somewhere. Fill up the reservoir and pump the brakes several times and see if fluid is leaking. If fluid leaks at back of master cylinder then replace that. Also check the inside of the rear backing plates for evidence of wetness from a leaky wheel cylinder (rear drum brakes).
Check under car for water leaks. Check the pump make sure the seal is tight,listen to the pump while the car is running and see if you hear any noise from the pump. This could be a sign of broken blazes.Finially pull off the upper hose to the water pump start the engine and see if the pump is working. If it is, check the thermostat it may not be opening to let the water pass through.
you need a new water pump seal. also check to see if the shaft is worn might need to replace that too you need a new water pump
Check coolant leaks with a visual inspection. Clean the engine, then see where the coolant reappears. Look under the water pump. Check engine oil to see if coolant is leaking into the oil.
Typically the water pump will make noise or show residue from leaks from the water pump bracket. You could also use a special tool that puts about 10-14psi of pressure on the cooling system and raise the car and see if it leaks from the water pump.
if you can not see a leak!! check water pump,or intake gaskets,or a bad head gasket, GOOD-LUCK!!
The water pipe from the pump to the ice maker is quite thin; check it to see that it is not plugged. Check to see that there is water also at the inlet to the water pump. If there is not, check that the pipe leading to the water pump is not plugged.
Look at it to see if there are leaks coming from it, and check it to see if it pumps fluid.
The easiest way to see if your pump is leaking is to fill the rad with coolant start the car and physically watch the pump to see if it leaks.
No, it is not. But the cost of labor is so high that is a good idea to do it as well. There are times when you need to do it though. Check how close you are to next timing belt change. See if water pump has any leaks. Check condition of the timing belt.
first check to see if you are leaking coolant from anywhere see if your fans are working. then check the thermostat. then check your water pump most likely it will be the water pump because the stupid ford designers made the impellers in the pump plastic
Your pump is not pumping the water. check your fuses to see if you have a blown fuse. Your may have to replace the pump if all the fuses are good. -Also,check the routing lines from the reservoir to the pump and to the sprayers to see that they are in working order.
First, eliminate obvious and visible leaks. Check for evidence of leakage or moisture. Check all fittings that go into or out of the pool pump, filter, or heater. Check for leaky pump lids, leaky valves, or leaky seals. Also check to make sure that your multi-port valve is not leaking water to the waste line. If it's possible to see where this backwash line empties, check to make sure that you don't see water flowing or dripping from here.
