The water pump does not switch off when I switch on the machine, it just keeps on pumping


It sounds like a control failure rather than a pump failure, the pump works after all, probably best to call a techbician to check the pump and the programmer

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY WATER PUMP IS BAD?


There are a number of hints that can signal failure. The obvious ones are when the pump fails catastrophically and causes rapid water loss, the fan wobbles and possible damages the radiator, etc.
However, that is not always the case in impending failures. Squealing can be a sign of pump bearing failure. Pudding of coolant under the front center of the vehicle is a telltale sign of pump leakage. Water pumps have a "weep hole" that lets a small amount of coolant escape when the bearing sleeve is wearing out. But you can be losing coolant from the pump and not see the puddle because in the early stages of failure, the pump will only weep while running. Then the fan blows the coolant back onto the block where it evaporates. You can look for the weep hole on the bottom side of the water pump where the shaft enters the sleeve. Look for signs of coolant streaking or small gatherings of coolant on engine parts just below the pump. The primary consideration is that there is coolant going missing. You may be able to remove the serpentine belt and wiggle the pump shaft to see if there is any side-to-side play in it. There should be none.

Water Pump leaks from the front end of the Wagon.


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  1. Determine the Reason for Water Pump Failure
    • 1 Repair a water pump by checking your car for a failure in the bearings. You can test for bearing failure by seeing if there is any play in the shaft that is connected to the electrical fan blades, as well as the drive pulley to the pump itself.
    • 2 If you notice any free play in the shaft or the pulley, you will need to take the pump apart and replace the bearings.


    • 3 Determine if the water pump failure is due to a leak in the casing. Examine the water pump housing for leaking or water stains in the drainage hole next to the pulley.
    • 4 If water is dripping from this hole, then the seals inside the pump need to replaced in order to repair the pump.
    Remove the Water Pump for Repair
    • 5 Allow the engine to cool completely before removing any part of the cooling system. Never open a radiator cap or plug while the engine is still warm.
    • 6 Disconnect the car battery. This will prevent the electrical fan from turning on while you are under the hood.
    • 7 Drain the radiator of all fluid and disconnect the radiator hoses. Collect the fluid with a plastic container and keep it in a safe place until you are ready to put it back into the radiator.
    • 8 Remove the fan assembly. This will include the shroud, the fan and the fan belt. Disconnect the electrical leads for the fan.
    • 9 Remove the pulley for the fan belt as well in order to have access to the water pump.
    • 10 Use a socket set to remove the water pump from its engine mount.
    • 11 Open the housing for the water pump and replace the seals or bearing as necessary. Some auto parts stores carry repair kits that have both the seals and bearings for specific types of water pumps.
    • 12 Reassemble the cooling system by replacing the water pump, pulley, fan belt, fan assembly and radiator hoses. Refill the radiator with the fluid.
    • 13 Start the engine to see if the water pump repair was successful. Check for leaks before you take the car out on the road.

Repeat water pump failure. 1994 Buick Lesabre.original pump had bearing failure. 1st new pump shaft failure."no longer carried in stores". 2nd pump bearing failure. and now my 3rd pump starting...


If your car requires dex cool, than that is what you need to use. If not then don't. Different coolant types each have different lubricants for the pump. Have you checked the belt tension? Changed hoses?Made sure pump is receiving water?

This water pump is making funny noise how can i solve this


A water pump on any auto making noise is a sign of bearing failure on the water pump drive stem. The only remedy is to have the water pump replaced or replace it yourself. The bearing gets water intrusion or dries out and the bearing fails. The water pump is not expensive but labor costs can be substantial depending upon the location of the water pump. Many water pumps are driven by the timing belt on smaller cars. Gaining access to the water pump often involves removing the timing belt cover and the timing belt. Failure to reinstall the timing belt in the exact same position as it was removed can cause catastrophic engine failure. Without your vehicle make and model this response is generic most vehicles.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Audi replaced the radiator support and now claim the electric water pump needs to be replaced


2002 Its due.

Water pump failure is equal to walking.
Plus total engine failure.

Now, does this sound to expensive for a water pump?.


INFO:
It is also due a radiator flush and new belts.

Hope this tip helps you through this difficult decision.

The machine will wash but stops when it gets to spin mode.


Different brands opperate in two ways,one is the water must pump out to continue and other is lid switch on top load and door switch in front load if water pumps out then switch failure should be the cause but if no water exits then pump drain could be clogged or pump failure are the most common causes for these problems

1994 mazda capella has water pump leak ........


Hi

The general reasons for the failure of a water pump are as follows.....

1. General mechanical failure in the seal, or bearing of the water pump, due to general wear and tear, or engine having been overheated badly.


2. Over tensioning, of the drive belt, putting excess strain on the water pump bearing.

I hope this has been of help to you.

A FixYa rating would be Nice... Thank You ...John.
