Its likely a weak battery if you have a hood light that was on when you replaced the water pump it could have drained it enough over a peirod time .
But that means the battery was weak in the first place. You can test the cells for speific gravity with a little tester you can buy one bad cell is all it takes or put it on a slow 2 amp charge with a battery charger or try to jump start it off another vehicle
Honestly I would check the battery before I tryed to jump it .It could damage the other vehicles electrical system if their is some problem with yours .

SOURCE: I have to turn the ignition on and off several

Replace fuel filter if it has not been done in a while. Also check fuel pump pressure with a gauge and compare with spec. When key is turned "on" the computer turns on fuel pump via relay. If the computer does not see rpm signal (engine start) within approx. 2 seconds it turns the fuel pump back off. Cycling the key often helps to build up fuel pressure sufficient to start when filter is plugged or pump pressure is weak.

I would suspect that you pulled a wire off when you were installing the water pump. Check to see if you have spark

SOURCE: how can i determine if

If you squeeze the upper radiator hose and it feels like the coolant is running thru it, your pump is working. The system should bleed itself within a few minutes if you keep the radiator and reservoir full. If it continues to bubble, you have a blown head gasket. :-(

Let us know if you need more help.

clogged radiator. Pull off upper hose and run water through it via hose and see if it flows out bottom of radiator. If flow is good, try flushing engine like this and see if it is blocked. Also, make sure you have it full of fluid and if you can, bleed air out of it.

My 2001 xterra started making a weird sound between 20 and 35 mph. It sounds like there is a leak in some pressure system.

While driving car the engine fan motor started running sounding real loud and then the dash lites began flashing on and off the battery lite came on the lite with wrench lite came on


Bit vague but I would start with the coolant. Is there any coolant in the system ? Might have caused an over-heat.
Which warning lights flashed apart from the battery ?
Check your water and oil (by "water" I mean coolant).
An over heating engine will cause all sorts of christmas tree lights to go beserk.

Car is making squealing sound when started up/driving and hesitating.


when changing a serp belt i recommend changing tensioner and idler pulley's also that could be causing the squealing you mention were all pulley's checked for free spin when belt was off ? Not really sure what would cause hesitation unless you have a serious drag on serpentine belt

Why no heat in 2001 mazda protege


Possible that the fan belt is not tensioned right or that the water pump is binding causing low flow through the heater.
If belt is not loose, release it more and try turning the water pump by hand to see if it is binding.

Over Heating


Did you bleed the system and replace any lost coolant? Is the system also clean?

Air and other blockages in the line will cause that problem.

Thats what it sounds like, you wont have water pump failure or overheating cause the water pump is operating properly. If the bearing goes on it the pump will seeze. Have they checked the idler pulley and belt tensioner pulley they also have bearings?

No heat


sounds like you have air in the system. when major cooling system components are replaced and not properly bled, air pockets form causing you to loose your heat function.

Pontiac grand am 1994 water comes out overflow


First question: why was the heater core replaced. Was it leaking water inside the car? Or was it replaced due to no heat inside the car. If it was replaced due to no heat inside the car, the shop you had taken it to shouldn't have replaced the heater core until they conducted tests of why there was no heat even if the customer insists on replacing the heater core. The reason why I'm asking is there's a possibility of the head gasket was leaking causing the poor circulation of the water to the heater core. If so, you may have replaced the heater core for no reason and most likely cost you a bunch of money. I live by this rule in our shop: DON'T JUST THROW PARTS AT THE CAR! You 'll end up spending way more money than you needed to.
