Question about 2001 Ford Taurus
No leak in cooling system I need to know how to check the water pump. I already replaced the thermostat. The temp gauge went from cold all the way to hot. The air comming from the heater followed what the temp gauge showed. the car did not run bad or act up while this was happening. I have a squeek coming from the area of the serpentine belt but don't know for sure if its from the water pump or one of the iddler pullies.
You can remove the rad cap and run the engine ( do not remove cap when hot!! ) You should be able to see the coolant circulating in the rad. You can also remove a heater hose and hold upwards and start engine, if coolant flows out the pump is circulating. If all looks good at that point I would start to suspect a cylinder head gasket leak and / or cracked cylinder head. Hope this helps .. Good Luck
