Pump not pumping water

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.

    the same exact thing is happening to me. The pump stopped sucking the water and it sounds like it's working but it's not.

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

    the impeller is probobly broke due to it running in freezing weather could have got ice in it or the line was clogged and just broke it, did you check the line to make sure it was clear?

Why is my 2002 Taurus over heating


I would say water pump is out again. The pumps are common prob. I would suggest getting lifetime warranty one new if possible. Could try leaving climate control on ac mode or defrost since this makes fans run more continuously and if that helps then replace pump.

No heat in car until its 200rpm then perfect


Low coolant level will cause this condition. Check and fill if necessary. Start simple, if that's not it, let me know.

Engine temp and heater temp not right.


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.
