Shaft seals on the pump do go bad. Just replaced one myself. The gasket for the pump housing itself may be leaking. You have to look real hard to tell which is leaking. If you replace the pump, you'll kill both birds with one stone since you need to use a new gasket anyhow.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. They all are right. Anyone of those parts can cause overheating. The most common issue is the thermostat though, followed by the water pump. You could have a defective coolant sensor. If you have a bad head gasket, it will cause overheating. If you change the water pump, change the valve and the impeller also. Do this. Check your coolant level first and make sure it is level. You said fans are good. Make sure the radiator is good and is getting fluid inside it. Make sure there are no leaks. Check all coolant hoses. Like I said, the most common issue is a sticking thermostat or a bad one. Next, I would say the water pump.

Car is overheating. Flushed three times--no improvemrnt. Can run pretty well with heater on and windows open. Doesn't heat up at idle speed. Someone suggested a loose fan belt but it is hard to...

There are 3 common reasons for a car over-heating:
  • lack of coolant due to a leaking radiator hose
  • clogged thermostat-fails to open to allow more coolant from entering the the system
  • bad water pump- although most bad water pumps tend to leak, it's possible to have a bad bearing inside the water pump which in turn would fail to adequately circulate coolant

Wont hold water. big hose on the bottom of the radiator attaches 2 the engine and it leaks right out of the engine underneath that hose...

Well, if that Radiator hose is not leaking, then the Water pump seals have gone bad. More than likely you need a new water pump.

Vehicles w/ Timing Belt Driven Water Pumps Should Always Have The Water Pump Replaced When The Timing Belt Is Replaced.

If you do not, then the Timing Belt will fail, turning a low cost repair into thousands because of valve train damages. . .

For the Timing Belt & Water Pump KIT - its around $258 through NAPA

If it's water pump, would be leaking from back of water pump pulley, also check both upper and lower coolant hoses that go to water pump, could also be water pump gasket.

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.

Water pump is leaking? i think? upper hose is hot lower hose is cooler but not cold. leak is coming from near the alternator.

Water pumps leak when they start going bad... it's kind of a warning sign before they let loose. So there's a good chance that you're right.

No the water pump will not affect the smog test. You probably failed the idle?
Usually with this age of vehicle you can replace the o2 (oxygen) sensor and it will pass. Cleaning the MAF if it has one cant hurt either if you do it right.
