In Reply to: Noisy Water Pump? (more) (long) posted by rIChie on December 07, 2001 at 12:36:17:
I usually start the car and let it warm up before I take off in the A.M. Though I've heard an obnoxious swooshing sound towards the front of the engine for a while when it's warm, it's getting a lot louder. I tried to convince myself that it was the alternator's bearings but after getting right in front of the fan blade and listening it sounds like something's loose in back of there. How can I further diagnose this water pump?.. How hard is the install?. I am not noticing any leakage of coolant..
How can I replace my center bearing? I feel a rubbing sound when I drive and the car is cold..
Thanks in advance...
