Or gauges indicating it was hot...prior to that my husband was in a car accident which fluid came out and body damage.. Lawyer recommended a shop, which we assumed it was also a mechanic shop too because the car wouldn't start after it got hit...well there saying that there was no water in car ...and that the water pump only leaks when car on...we never had no puddle of water even when we parked it...we always parked in the same spot. I guess my question is, would we had any indication the water pump going out...
My car has 70000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
It is quite likely that when the car was hit, the radiator may have been punctured which would have caused a lot of the coolant to leak out of the vehicle.
If the water pump failed or if it were low on coolant, there would have been overheating indications on in the dash, so you should have had some kind of warning either way that the coolant level was low.
