Chevy s10 water pump

My son was driving home the other night and his truck starting getting hot. He pulled over and saw that it was leaking water and the fan was pulled off the motor. We have baught a new water pump and will need a new radiator, but where is the water pump located? There seems to be some difference of opinion on this. Please help.
Thank you,
Paula

Pump is attached to the front of the engine. Easy way to find it is to look at the new one in the box.Old one looks just like it but dirtier. Since the fan came off and went into the radiator, I suggest you replace it. a slight bend in any blade and that is enough to quickly destroy the bearing in the new pump. Likely you can save lots of $ if you get the radiator and fan assembly from a scrapyard. Since you can't find the pump, it is safe to assume you have never done this work before...You can get yourself a vehicle specific manual that covers all you need to know for about $20 at any larger parts house. Both haynes and chilton are pretty decent for what you need. One important tip...make sure you remove every part of the old gasket before putting the pump back on...also change the thermostat. they get unreliable once overheated.
Good luck!

I have had a similar problem with my son's Accord. You are lucky that your son knew to stop immediately, this happened to my son and we ended up having the head rebuilt.

A leak may exist but not show up until there is adequate pressure or, you may have a blockage that caused excessive pressure.

We once had the radiator leak which was nearly undetectable in his Accord, check for moisture in the trough where the radiator sits by looking down the inboard side of the radiator with the hood up. You may need a flashlight. Radiators are available at auto parts stores for about $100 and easy to replace. Replace the thermostat, cap and as many hoses as you can at the same time.

Another problem we had was the radiator cap had come apart and leaked periodically.

If the thermostat stuck, this could have caused a temperature and pressure surge explaining the now-you-see-it-now-you-don't leak. A faulty fan, or fan switch could also cause a periodic temperature surge.

The leak could be coming from the thermostat housing which is on the passenger side of a 4 cyl engine, or from the upper or lower radiator hoses or the two heater hoses. The water pump is on the drivers side and connects to the thermostat housing through a metal pipe with O-ring seals.

Radiator overheating


The only thing missing from your narration is the water pump. Check to make sure that you are not losing coolant from the water pump. Make sure it is not leaking coolant. If there is evidence of leaking, the water pump is bad. You must take extreme caution when dealing with the cooling system (hot liquid under pressure; not a pleasant thought), but you can remove the radiator cap and start the engine. Check the coolant in the radiator for movement/circulation. If the water pump is functioning properly, there should be some visible sign of water/coolant circulation. The water pump may not be at fault, but with the other upgrades you made to the cooling system, some gunk (for lack of a better word) may have broken loose and clogged the ports in the water hose. You can also remove the hose at the water pump and check for anything clogging up the works. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

HOT QUICK even at night !


so are you saying the fans aren't coming on? then yes, that's probably the problem. Start the car and watch the fans, but don't let the car overheat. If it starts to get too hot and the fans haven't come on, well first shut the car off before the head gaskets go, then find out why the fans don't work. Check fuses and relays, power and ground at fan motor, if all good replace fan assembly.

You need to check your coolant level first. If it is low you have a coolant leak. No hot coolant=No heat
