Q: Water pump broken

There can be many symptoms of a bad water pump. Most of the time, when the pump fails it is because it has started to leak. It can leak when the engine is running or when the vehicle sits, but it usually occurs when it is running. The pump can also cause a growling noise with the engine running due to a bearing failure. This can occur without a leak. Most of the time I remove the belt and spin the water pump pulley by hand to see if there is any roughness indicating a bearing failure. If you need to have the pump checked, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to inspect the car and replace the water pump if necessary.
