No. Your water pump is leaking because its shot. If you grand am has a 4cyl in it you need to put new thermostat in when you replace the water pump. Also you need to flush the cooling system. That brings us to this reason. The GM 4 cyl will not take to over heating, because if you overheat them I will tell you right now the head gasket will be gone and you will spend some bucks to get it fixed if you don't ruin the engine first.

Why does the freezing point of water make it a poor choice for the liquid in a thermometer?

Water freezes at a fairly high temperature - 0oC/32oF. As soon as the temperature reached that point the water would freeze and the thermometer would no longer work. One would not be able to use a thermometer with water in it to measure any temperatures below 0oC/32oF.

How could you calibrate a thermometer which had no scale marked?

Put it in a pot of water. Boil the water. Then mark the spot on the thermometer at which the water boils - the spot you marked will be 100 degrees celsius. Then put it in water in the freezer and mark it. The point at which the water freezes will be 0 degrees celsius. Then measure the length between 0 and 100 and make 9 equal marks for each 10 degrees and your thermometer is calibrated.

When you put water in the radiator why does it keep running out?

There could be a leak, maybe a small leak, and only when it overheats. Also, check the oil and make sure there is no water in the oil. It will probably look weirdly milky on the dipstick if there is water in the oil.

What could cause a constant loud whooshing sound in the water pipes like rushing water even when faucets are closed and there is no water leak anywhere?

You may have a leak you dont know about. Check with the Water Utility - somtimes they will come out for free. Yep, they will. If you hear water and nothing is turned on, you have a leak. Shut off your water from inside your house (shut-off is located where your water line enters the house). If the whooshing goes away, the leak is inside your house somewhere. If it still makes the sound, the Water Utility will shut off the curb stop. If the whooshing stops, then the leak is between the curb stop and your main shut off (ie. there's a leak in your main service line coming into your house). In general, it will be your responsibility to make this repair as it is on your side of the curbstop. If the sound persists, it is coming from the public water main and Water /utility Crews will locate with a stethoscope and make the repair at no cost to you.

How can you tell if the thermostat is bad on a Chevy Trailblazer?

To test a thermostat remove it while the motor is cold and make sure it is not stuck open. If it is stuck open when cold it is faulty. If it it is closed put it in water on a stove with a thermometer and heat the water. It should open at the temperature it is rated for wich is usually stamped on the thermostat. If it does not open when heated it is faulty. Thermostats are cheap and do need to be replaced occassionally; if I decide to remove a thermostat i generally replace it with a new one for piece of mind.
