Spin all the pulleys by hand. Is one ready to fall off or frozen. Is the water pump pulley sloppy? Has the water pump been leaking?

My '98 Taurus started making a clicking noise yesterday and seems to be running hot, the noise continues even when in park and increases with RPMs. I'm guessing that it might be the water pump, I don't see...


most likely you're right on it bad water pump, some times they don't always leak when bad. you can take radiator cap off while running to look @ see if it's circulating though thats a start

97 chevy 1500 coolant leak


It is the water pump most likely,they have ,what they call a weep hole in the bottom under the pulley,so they will leak out to let you know to change them right away.If it is on the top coming from the intake area,it would be the intake,they are also bad to leak,but look at the pump,under the pulley.

Small leak in a 98 jeep grand cherokee near the bottom pulley on front of engine..what is it?


If its leaking coolant, likely it is coming from the water pump above the lower pulley and running down to there. Look carefully and use a light.
If leak is oil, the pulley seal is leaking.

The pully on my water pump is lose


The pulley on the water pump is separate from the pump on both the 6 and V-8 engines (you didn't specify which engine was in your truck).
If the pulley is wobbling around and grinding, the bearings have failed on the pump. The fact that it has not leaked is not unheard of. REPLACE THE PUMP! Continued operation will cause the impeller (the side of the pump which moves the water) to chew up the housing. Not to mention leaving you stranded.
