What are the signs of a water pump problem - 2000 Ford Windstar
A water pump problem will begin with a small quantity of leaking water from the top or bottom of the pump from a small depression called a weep hole. This lets you know the pump will fail soon and the "seal" inside where the blades turn is "rocking back and forth" and is no longer solid. The water pump will cause you to have low coolant and your fans may kick on while you are driving rather than when you are stopped in traffic. Then the pump will begin to make a grinding noise as it fails worse and the vehicle may overheat due to low circulation. To test the pump, remove the drive belt and turn the pulley for the water pump by hand. If it is NOT SMOOTH it is time to replace it.
