Video tutorial on how to diagnose a faulty water pump on a vehicle. This video consists of two different areas which include gaskets and the bearing. Water pump models do vary between vehicle makes and models. Some are equipped with a mechanical clutch fan such as what is shown in the video, others do not. Some water pumps can be driven by an accessories belts, other by a timing belt, they can also be hidden under a timing belt cover if your vehicle has a timing belt engine. Any faults with the water pump could be just routine maintenance or causes by other issue under the hood which in turn create premature failure of the pump.
