water pump

How do you check to see if your water pump is out? I have a 1992 Toyota Paseo. Any help I can get will be appriciated.

Thank you

Check to see if you can see a leak at the bottom of the pump.Also check and see if the water is circulating good.

Normally a water pump failure will show one of two things:

1. The pump leaks externally either through a weep hole or around the shaft.

2. The shaft has excessive play in it, has bad bearing noises, or seizes up entirely.

It is also possible to have one where the vanes inside are corroded badly which decreases the volume of coolant it is able to move; can't see this unless you remove the pump.

What problems are you having specifically?

I have seen on very rare occassions the impeller was slipping on the shaft.
