If the water pump is bad, it will leak from the weep hole on bottom of pump. unless the bearings seize up on pump and will not turn. you will see coolant running from bottom.

I am leaking coolant in the front not at the radiator but close too it. Is it the hose or the water pump?

Put a piece of cardboard under the car. Then look down at the cardboard from above the the area. You can see where the drops are in relation to the hose or water pump or other spot.
I do that for locating oil leaks.
Hope this helps.

I have a Dodge 2002 SLT Truck with a 4.7 engine and it whines when I accelerate. I took the serpintine belt off and it still whines when I rev the motor. Can anyone help?

One possibility could be a failing water pump. One of the first signs of a bad water pump is a whining / screeching sound due to a bad bearing.

What are the signs of a water pump problem

A water pump problem will begin with a small quantity of leaking water from the top or bottom of the pump from a small depression called a weep hole. This lets you know the pump will fail soon and the "seal" inside where the blades turn is "rocking back and forth" and is no longer solid. The water pump will cause you to have low coolant and your fans may kick on while you are driving rather than when you are stopped in traffic. Then the pump will begin to make a grinding noise as it fails worse and the vehicle may overheat due to low circulation. To test the pump, remove the drive belt and turn the pulley for the water pump by hand. If it is NOT SMOOTH it is time to replace it.

I have 1998 740i BMW that is overheating. 1) What are the warning signs of a bad water pump? 2) What are the warning signs of a blown head gasket? 3) What are the warning signs of bad timing?

Timing - engine is not sounding right or back firing.
Head gasket - water and oil mixing, see inside water bottle. or open bottle. rev engine when cold, if starts spitting water out while cold like a fountain.
Water pump - Water leaking from side of engine. or when car started and water bottle is open and no circulation is visible could be signs of water pump
Remember - Block radiator lines can also cause over heating problems and lack of water circulation.
