Water pumps have sealed bearings inside. If the bearing fails, the pump has to be replaced. Don't wait too long, the pump may sieze up and stop coolant circulation. Make sure it's the pump and not the belt or pulley.

Mazda Etude 180 ise produces a screeching sound and overheats, over a short distance. What can it possibly be, water pump or radiator, belts ,,,,, ? So depressing.


belt squeal
check tensioinand condition the drive belt to the water pump
or if the timing belt drives the water pump thats a bigger job

suspect a blown head gasket
if it boils out of the radiator

oil in coolant
coolant or water bubbles on dip stick

flush the radiator
refill with new coolant
replace
any old or leaking hoses
the thermostat
make sure the engine cooling fans turn and spin fast enough to cool

Screeching sound remains


Your AC pump is starting to faiL. It's starting to bind and putting heavy back pressure on the belt causing it slip and screech. After the car cools off inside, the load on the AC compressor is lower and the sound will die down. Also when the belt gets hot it gets a little more flexible and grippy which also lowers sound.

Take it to an auto AC repair place and have it checked.

Sounds likethewater pump pulley makes noise when


It sounds like you have a loose or worn alternator belt
(same belt drives water pump) That would explain the
screeching noise and the battery light on when wet.
Check the belts for tension and wear on the inside of
the belts(cracks or pieces missing) if you're going to
change the belt or belts yourself, thats the best time
to check the pullys and make sure they are tight and
spin true. Hope this helps.
