The alternator is belt driven and so is the water pump but that is where the correlation ends. There is no way a bad alternator could cause a water pump to go bad unless the alternator pulley was warped. Then there is a small chance.
the timing belt can cause a water pump to go bad if the belt is on too tight, because that will put stress on the bearings making it wear out rather quickly.
Normal wear on the bearings inside.
yes and no, if the water pump seals are bad antifreeze will leak from the weep hole on the water pump, but it is possible for the pump to go bad and not leak at all.
Probably not in the context you had in mind. If the thermostat is constantly open, however, it can cause the water pump to run excessively or even continuously, and that'll cause the pump to wear out faster.
it get rusted
Usually it does not, but if the water pump is leaking some fluid can be on the water pump pulley which might cause the timing belt to slip.If it happens you are facing a very serious engine repair in couple thousand dollars. Also a bad water pump can cause overheating which can damage the engine too.
Yes. A pump does not have to leak to break down
I presume you mean car water pump? If the water pump is faulty the car will over heat and the temperature gauge will go up. Make sure that there is enough coolant in the radiator, the radiator or the hose pipe is not leaking and the radiator cap is not faulty, as all of these faults can cause overheating. Once you have excluded these then you can blame the water pump.
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.
A plugged fuel filter can cause the pump to fail prematurely due to it having to work harder to pump the fuel through.
Only if it's going bad. When the bearing and seal are starting to go bad the water pump will leak from the weep hole.
While fuel pumps can go bad with age, a common failure cause is letting the car run out of gas. The pump can go bad in just a few minutes if there is no gas flowing through it.
There are a few things that can cause a coolant leak but in your case it is probably the water pump. When a water pump starts to go bad it will leak coolant from the bottom.
yes and no. depends on what you mean by "bad" the bearings can go out in it but it will still move water keeping engine cool but making a heck of a racket.
thay usually leak at the bottom of pump out the releif hole. or if it is noisier than usual it can go bad.
If you are speaking of a pump and control box for a well pump system, it goes on and off first of all normally. I assume you are speaking of it going on and off even without use of water ? If that is the case , you may have a waterlogged tank or a bad diaphragm in a fixed diaphragm tank. This would cause it to go on and off with use of water rapidly.If it goes on and off without use of water it is because there is water leaving the system , because of a leak in a plumbing fixture or a leak in the pipe from the house to the well, or the pipe in the well sitself. It could aslo be a bad check valve at the head of the submersible pump. Bottom line , get it corrected, before you burn out the pump or cause shorter life to it.
No they don't go bad at same time but any smart technician will replace both at same time.
overheating? Low fluid level? Plugged filter? Bad pump?
It is important to know the causes of problems in a vehicle. A surging idle can be cause by a bad o2 sensor, bad fuel pump, or a computer starting to go bad.
There are many things that can cause gasoline to go bad. Time (decrease in volatility), oxidation, or water contamination are all culprits.
The most common cause of a fuel pump going out is a restricked are stopped up FUEL FILTER. Nothing last forever.
Sometimes they'll emit a high pitched noise before they go bad. Is your engine running hot? Could be a bad thermostat.
If it freezes it can end up bursting and cause water to go into the ally way.
