I think my water pump is out. How would I know


could be the water pump but I would be looking for a larger leak, like a radiator hose, radiator tank split
most water pumps leak a slow dribble and then mostly when running
have a pressure test done on the cooling system to find the exact location of the leak

98 Dodge Stratus runs rough, stalls, is running hot. I replaced the cam and crank shaft position sensors when the codes came up, also replace the fuel pump a few months ago. Now this. It also doesn't start...


Well the timing belt and water pump either work or they don't. So I doubt either part has actually failed.
I think I would want to figure out the running hot problem first since that could cause the other two if its a leaking head gasket.

I think my water pump is leaking on my 98 nissan altima


Very possible. The water pump will be run by the timing belt behind the engine cover and on the same side of the motor as all your external belts. Make sure there are no hoses close by that could be leaking and if not it will probly be the water pump. Usually they will make a noise when they are failing. Remeber if it is just a drip and it is hot outside if you run your air conditioning it will drip water from the condenser as well.

Car wont stay running and i thought it was feul pump or fuel filter. i replaced both and it still wont run. it will crank sometimes but cuts right off like its not getting fuel, at least thats what i was...

Car is running hot I think it's my water pump .


The most likely causes of a hot running engine are the following:

1. low antifreeze level in the radiator and cooling system.
2. fan not turning on at operating temperature.
3. restrictions in the cooling system such as sediment build up.

Water pumps usually leak when they are bad, and can cause an overheat because of low coolant level.
Check whether the water pump is leaking after topping off the coolant level and running at operating temperature, and then shutting off the car's engine.

3.1 L runs very warm 200-220 but not in the hot range All fan relays have been replaced, Could it be the water pump, its not leaking but circulation is slow? 170,000 + miles all original.


I have a 2000 malibu with the 3.1 and it runs about 2 lines over half on a hot day. and about half on a cool day. I have flushed system, changed thermostat, and replced the coolant and it still runs like that. I think all 3.1 run warmer than usual. as long as it does not over heat and it has all working I think this is normal. because the engine operating tempurature is about 220 degrees. as you said it may be yor water pump!!

My 2006 charger 3.5 is leaking coolant but only somtimes is it a sign of water pump malfunction no indications on the gauges but car seems to be running hot


this is most likely the water pump if it is leaking at front of engine, the water pump is under the large timing belt cover and driven by the timing belt, so both are changed at the same time.

Low coolant level


The water pump is mounted in the center passenger side of the motor possibly inside with timing belt but if it is leaking you will see the water and coolant in that area.

Heat gauge shows hot , have to add antifreeze although no leak


Very common fault is head gaskets.  causing coolant consumption and bubbles in radiator.  Run vehicle, have a friend accelerate once or twice hard, while you smell exhaust for sweet smell of burning coolant.
