If the engine is overheating and you have checked all other causes of overheating. Start the engine cold and immediately remove the radiator cap. Look to see if you have flow. If not, the pump is more than likely bad. If the pump is leaking, making any noises, or the shaft can be moved from side to side, the pump is bad.
i have the same problem, i am thinking it might be the water pump?

No, rain has no effect on water pressure. - If you have a well and are getting low pressure, insert a question in 'plumbing' detailing the problem, pump type and pressure tank type, colour and pressure at lowest. Tell us as much as you can and we will tell you how to fix the problem.
Failed water pump seal or cracked housing.
There is a small hole in the bottom that is designed to leak when the water pump bearing is goin out
if you are talking about the weep hole in the water pump. that hole will let water out when the seals in the water go bad. that will tell you to get the water pump replaced.
Determine what is causing the problem, faulty belt tensioner, alternator water pump, a/c compressor, one or more of these components could cause the problem.
If the water pump is bad ussually the heater will stop giving hot air .
Leaking around water pump mounting or shaft Play in shaft
you will never know until you dont see water
You didn't say what the problem is. But if you question the sensor, replace it, it probably cost lest than $20.
You can tell where the water pump is located by finding where the mechanical fan is bolted to. If you want to change the water pump, the fan and fan shroud must be removed.
You can tell by if there is a leak around the pumps impeller or the gasket. If there is a leak, then the water pump would need to be changed. Secondly if there is no pressure in the cooling system, vehicle is overheating. Chances are the impeller inside the pump is melted, the water pump would need to be changed. Last, if the bearing are worn out on the water pump which would cause unusual noise would be an indication for the pump to be changed.
No not really it would be there all the time if it where the water pump. Does your car also suffer with overhaeting probs or using water if not more than deffinalty not the water pump.
Yes the whole pump is designed to be under water but plugging it in at least 3' above the top of pump basin, also every pump will tell you in their specs how deep of water it can be in.
it wont work
it is probably your water pump
What is your problem? Be more specific
The seals in the pump are leaking and the pump needs to be replaced.
