How to tell if the waterpump is faulty

Hi Charlene:
A faulty water pump will usually give you some indications.
1) Look for a coolant leak. Not always evident
2) Grasp the fan and see if it will wobble. A bad bearing can happen without the seal leaking.
3) Rattling sound could come from alternator, air conditioning compressor, tension idler, or power steering.
Use a mechanics stethescope or dowel sound rod to CAREFULLY listen to the different parts with the engine running. You will hear the faulty part.

Igot a07 pete with c-15 cat engine trying to replace the waterpump having problem getting it out

Oh boy.. first you need to remove the huge fan in front after taking the belts off.. the entire fan mount has to be taken off.. you may also need to remove the big bottom pulley off ..drain the cooling system into a huge bucket.. about a 6-8 gallon one. then take any hoses loose.. then unbolt the pump and remove it..if in doubt contact a cat dealer or peterbuilt work on diesels is limited but I could figure it out if I saw it..

My 2005 ram 1500 4.7 has been running progressively hotter over the last couple of months. ive changed out the thermostat, fan clutch ,and waterpump and i still cant make it 30 miles to work without it...

Remove the radiator and have it stripped and rodded out then reassembled by a radiator repairers. They can be blocked badly internally and otherwise look ok.

Changed thermostat,relay,tophose everything,radiator switch,.still the engine gets heated if we run the car above 50km/hr speed.It is normal when we drive inside 50km/hr.Radiator fan also not rotating.wht...

Sounds like your fan belt is glazed or loose. At higher speeds the belt slips over waterpump and doesn't drive pump fast enough to circulate coolant. That would be first thing I would check...
Other possibilities: waterpump, blocked heater core, fan clutch.

Fac clutch doesn't comefree

I cant remember counter or clock wise but doesnt matter I believe it comes off counter clock. The easy way is if you have a air compressor and a air hammer. Take the flat bit place on large nut lightly hit the nut until it breaks free. If not take the largest wrench that fits good and safely tap it hard with a hammer , fast hard blow will break it loose. hope this helps

Waterpump removing fan

Well, if it's a 5.0L engine, remove the 4 bolts holding the fan to the pulley. If it's a 4.0L engine, you need to hold the waterpump pulley still and break the nut loose holding the fan clutch to the waterpump. If you don't have a wrench that big, try using a long chisel on the edge of the nut and hitting it very hard with a hammer to break it loose.

My car  wont  strat  after the  fan belt  got  to tight and the smoke came out of  engine  i fix it  but now  it  just  wont  start

the belt cant just up and get too tight,,,did the belt break...a pully maybe locked up and caused it to burn the belt off....waterpumps and ac compressors are known to do that...if the new belt is gripping well it may keep the engine from turning over....
