How do i know if my water pump is bad on a G6


Disconnect the top radiator hose at the radiator, plug the hole in the radiator where the hose attaches, and put a garden hose in the radiator to keep it full of water.
Start the engine, and if the water pump is working, the water & coolant will pour out of the top hose.
Remember, the thermostat must already be open, or it will not flow until the thermostat gets hot enough to open.
(Or, if the pump is leaking whilst the car is running, or if the pump is "screaming" whilst the engine is running.)

What would leak water besizes the water pump behind the motot?


Lots of possibles:
- Bad hose
- bad seal in water pump
- bad head gasket
- cracked head
- cracked block
May I suggest that you dry it off, fill the radiator, then run it for 5 minutes. Shut it off and use a mirror, flashlight, finger tips, and tissue paper to locate the exact source of the leak.
Keep trying with 5 minute intervals of run time and eventually it will start to leak. Then you'll find it.
heers.

I have a 1996 buick skylark gran sport , and it kept running hot then it died at light, then started back up, started to run hot again, so i pulled over let it cool and also add water to help cool it down...


You may have done serious damage to the engine. If the water level is fine and you didn't blow your head offs when you penned the radiator cap like it tells toy not to when hot, it's the water circulation pump failing.

Water pump needs to be replaced. Don't keep driving it like that. It's bad bad bad for your engine. Unfortunately a water pump isn't typically easy to replace, seek professional help.

check for a loose electrical connection or a faulty stop solenoid on the pump or injector controls if common rail . It sound that the stop control has an intermittent continuity problem ( broken wire-dirty connection---bad earth site etc)

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.
