Is there any way to check if the water pump is not functioning correctly? I think it is causing my car to overheat. I'm getting sick and tired of the temp sensor rising to the dreaded "H". Would UR pullies solve the problem?
JK.

TIA

Yes, the fans do come on. They usually come on when the temperature is kinda high. It will then lower the temp a little but it keeps rising and stays up there until the car is moving (40+ MPH), then temp drops to normal. Any help is appreciated. I would hate to take it into a shop, but looks like if I don't solve the problem soon, I might have to.

I replaced mine a couple weeks ago because it was leaking. I can't see how they would fail and stop pumping coolant, its simply a pulley on one side and an impeller on the other. It could start leaking, or seize up maybe, but if it did that you would probably hear or smell the belts.

Could it be a clogged radiator? If thats the case you would have to take it out and have a radiator shop fix it.
