My pump was working fine until the temp dropped to single digits and I noticed it not pumping. I unplugged it and now it is raining so I plugged it back in. I sounds like it is on but when I submerge it it does not pump water. The float rises adn it sounds like it is going to work but it does not.

Re: Pump not pumping water
Make sure the outlet is clear of debris so it can pump it out,, if it was trying to pump while frozen it could have broke the impeller, so it sounds like it is working but it isn't, motor running but propeller just sitting still,, time for a pump

I notice that you replaced the water pump,Did the car over heat at any time, If it did end you didn,t stop right away when it first happen, It can do real serious damage to the engine, That will give the syptons you are describeing,If you notice that the car starts to use more oil, That is a deffenet sign there was damage done to the engine,That it done damage to the piston rings, Have you changed the thermostat in it? It tell me allso when you stay your temp gauge is not working that the termostat .Might not be functioning(Properly) End mess up the temp (Sending) unit. If the car is over heating there will be a loss in power,
This might be a problem with the topside control. When the spa is clicking, try unplugging the topside control and see whether or not the problem stops. If the jet button is stuck on the topside, the pump will turn on-off-on-off-on-off until the topside is unplugged.

Take it to another shop, The water pump doen't hold the Thermostate. The thermostate is in the thermostate housing where the end of the radiator hose is connected to the egine.
There are different thermostate rating to which temprature you'll like your engine running at. Most common would be a 190 thermostate you can get them from 160 up to 220.
As for the water pump you would know if that failed do to over heating or leaking from the weep holes in it.
Bring the truck to another shop and have them flush and Antifreeze if it's never benn done and change the Thermostate to a 180 or 190 and should be done every Two years do to waer and tear. Note the 180 runs cooler then the 190 and so on.
I run mine on 160 since I tow a trailer and the radiator also cools the transmisson oil too. Just for though but you should be fine at 180 or 190.
Good luck and hope this helps.
