Bad water pump?

What are some signs of a bad/going out water pump? The reason I ask is because I am running a little hot In the 205 range unloaded with the air temps at around 100. So I took the thermostat out and after running for around an hour I am getting it the 190-195 range EOT stays within 10 degrees weather it goes up or down.

Here is a quote from one of our members who had it happen to him. His coolant temps seemed to go up quite a bit more than yours, though. Yours sounds more like a bad t-stat if you took it out and temps are now in the "good" range...

I went an trouble shoot the system, and when I pulled the pump I saw the carnage! That pump was only a couple of months old when it happened.

I believe he is referencing the bpd one, at $600, I don't think that makes sense either.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

Just put a factory one in. Total waste of money for a bpd one in my opinion. My water pump has 143k on it and no issues. When it goes, I'll put a factory one back in.

Thank you, just because you can afford to buy something dosnt justify doing so. $100 for a w/p that could last you 100k miles or $400 for on that could last longer...all Im askin is it worth it.

it has non plastic blades
it's rebuildable = last forever

the reason they don't just add a billet impeller /bearings to a an existing casting
is they were getting castings with huge amounts of casting quality fluctuations and they could not feel comfortable letting those go out their door so they make their own .


yes NAPA has a stamped steel impeller but I have read to many threads where people had to do them twice do to failure .. I only want to go in there once
