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.

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.

Most water pumps have a (weep) hole just under where the pulley go's into the pump body.=ok you fan blade is bolted to the front of your pump. looking down if you see a trinkel of water or a water stain on the front of it under the shaft you can bet your pump is gone.=
