Bad Water Pump Symptoms?

Answer

The water pump sends water to the radiator to keep the engine cool while driving. The pump is run by a pulley. Sometimes that pulley can break and it will stop the pump. No water going to the radiator generally leads to overheating. Another sign the water pump is going bad is called weeping. If you start seeing drops of coolant under the car, check the seals on the water pump. When a water pump starts to go bad, the seals are designed to start leaking as an indicator. Also listen for any rubbing, grinding, or whining noises from the pump.

If it leaks, change it. If it's not leaking, I wouldn't be worried about whether it's going bad, just wait for it to leak.
