We've bleed we've changed thermostat the water housing tank , in an o4 Sebring what's sign of bad water pump


Noise coming from water pump when engine is running, very slow or virtually no circulation of coolant in the radiator. To hear if the water pump bearing is going out..Take a long screwdriver or tire iron and touch and hold against water pump while engine is running, put ear to other end..works like a stethoscope..just be careful you have it in a steady place on water pump so belt doesn't turn it into a projectile!
if you feel like its the water pump, take serpentine belt off and see if pulley on water pump has any play up or down or front to back, and spin with hand should spin freely...if has play or doesn't spin freely or you can hear, usually a kind of whining noise coming from water pump, it needs replacing. The water pump also has a small hole onthe bottom side, if the diaphragm in waterpump goes bad it will usually have a slow steady drip coming from the hole. Have you had the radiator pressure tested?

Loud engine noise from the genarator or waterpump area


Does it sound like a squealing, a humming, or some other friction related noise? If so, it could be the alternator or the water pump bearings going out. But do let us know what the noise sounds like!

I wanna know how to change waterpump


Remove drive belt. Remove all coolant, remove hoses to water pump, Remove all screws from water pump, remove gasket from hard surface, use permatex gasket sealer on both sides of waterpump gasket and apply to engine side, then waterpump, hold water pump in place until all water pump nuts screws are installed, use torque wrench, no more the 10 ft lbs. The rest is the reverse of uninstallation.

Squeaking noise and antifreeze leaking....waterpump replcement perhaps?


With the engine turned off, put your finger up behind under the pump pulley. if you find antifreeze there likely the pump seal has failed. Otherwise, locate the leak source and make whatever repair is necessary. You will get a noise any time water or coolant gets on the drive belt. Best to look before going through a pump replacement to find later you have a pin hole in the radiator on a hose!!!

OSCILLATING NOISE FROM FRONT OF ENGINE.REMOVED BOTH BELTS,NOISE REMAINED.SOUNDS LIKE BUSHING/BEARING IS GOING/GONE.WATER PUMP? ONLY 75K ON ENGINE


This could be waterpump or one of the idler bearing guides that support the cambelt. You will need to get the cambelt covers off at the front. These are the big black plastic covers on the front of the engine.

Wont hold water. big hose on the bottom of the radiator attaches 2 the engine and it leaks right out of the engine underneath that hose...


Well, if that Radiator hose is not leaking, then the Water pump seals have gone bad. More than likely you need a new water pump.

Vehicles w/ Timing Belt Driven Water Pumps Should Always Have The Water Pump Replaced When The Timing Belt Is Replaced.

If you do not, then the Timing Belt will fail, turning a low cost repair into thousands because of valve train damages. . .

For the Timing Belt & Water Pump KIT - its around $258 through NAPA

I was told its the waterpump that is making a load snorkeling noice what is its if not? almost like a dieseling noice also


Yes the water pump can make noises but there is also the belts that can make noises.
So pour some water when the car starts on the belt and pump area to see if the sound stops, if belt noise it will stop but if this is the water pump, the alternator bearing or the idler pulley , it must be checked.
