Replace it. They have a bearing in them as well as a seal, and do wear out.

Leaking coolant


If the water pump was bad, it would either leak water out the front of engine from the pump (bad seal inside the pump), or it would not circulate the coolant through the engine and the radiator (bad or worn pump impeller blades) but then for sure, the car would overheat.
Where was the smoke coming from, the exhaust or the engine area? If it's from the engine area, the coolant was probably leaking on the engine and then boiled away. If you had white smoke from the exhaust, coolant is entering a cylinder from a head gasket leak and being burnt off inside the engine.

How can i tell if my waterpump is bad? shut the car off and came out later to anti freeze in the driveway


If it's leaking that bad, open the hood take off radiator cap and fill with water (without making a mess and spilling a bunch. Then simply watch for where the leak is at, if it's leaking from a hose, the radiator, or from around the area where the belt is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment. If it's leaking from the passenger side around the belt area your water pump is the most common cause. They are made so when the bearing wears out around the shaft the pulley bolts, it has what are called weep holes and the water just runs out to tell you to replace the water pump.

My '98 Taurus started making a clicking noise yesterday and seems to be running hot, the noise continues even when in park and increases with RPMs. I'm guessing that it might be the water pump, I don't see...


most likely you're right on it bad water pump, some times they don't always leak when bad. you can take radiator cap off while running to look @ see if it's circulating though thats a start

Problem with my 2000 ford taurus water pump.


I just had that same problem with the antifreeze leaking and I thought it was my water pump but I pulled the antifreeze tank off and it was cracked all along the bottom and that was causing the antifreeze to leak out real bad so I went to a nearby junkyard and found a new tank and replaced the cracked one and now it works just fine with no leaks. I hope this works for you liked it worked for me.
