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.

You may have to dig deeper for a vacuum leak. It's possibly the intake manifold gasket. Try spraying some starting fluid around the intake manifold. Also try disconnecting the brake booster and plugging that hose, the diaphram in the booster could be ruptured, causing a vacuum leak. Check the PCV valve and hose too.

SOURCE: overheating and leaking when i
There is a plastic bottle located beside the radiator with a hose that runs down beside the radiator, this is the reservoir for coolant and has this overflow feature. For car overheating it could be one of three things, thermostat stuck closed, hoses closing together (squeeze the hoses with your hand, if they are soft they need to be replaced) or your water pump is not working.
