The general reasons for the failure of a water pump are as follows.....

1. General mechanical failure in the seal, or bearing of the water pump, due to general wear and tear, or engine having been overheated badly.

2. Over tensioning, of the drive belt, putting excess strain on the water pump bearing.

I hope this has been of help to you.

A FixYa rating would be Nice... Thank You ...John.

Had a timing belt put on recently on a 1994 mazda b2300 and now the water pump is pouring out water would it be from anything when he did the timing belt ?

Not directly related just time for the pump to go. It has to do with the engine running so long with the old belt tension then a little extra tension when one readjust the belts on the pump and the seal wears. NOW if he did not put the gaskets back new or if he did not clean off the old gaskets before he installed new. That would be his fault. Loose bolts or broken bolts thats his fault. Look for a lot of gasket glue. Too much glue can cause a coolant leak. Look close for these signs. If the pump is leaking from the weep hole, it just is worn out.

My 94 mazda 626 lx dumped radiator fluid on the ground i believe that its the water pump but dont know where it is or how to change it

Broken water-pump don't dump water when they are bad. They leak bit-by-bit through their bleed holes. You may have a broken hose. You may test the leaking again with plain water, and while the engine is running open the hood and see where the leak is coming from.
If your water-pump is out, you will have to replace it togethet with the timing-belt. And it would be best to get the Haneys repair manual which is more detailed for this job. The water-pump is bolted to the engine side, protected by black plastic covers.

1994 mazda capella won't start

It sounds like the starter is bad. You can have it tested at autozone for free. You just have to remove it from the car to test it.

Check the thermostat to make sure it is good. They are inexpensive if you just want to put a new one in. If the thermostat is bad, it will not allow the water to properly circulate. If this does not fix the problem, you will have to replace the water pump.
