I have an 89 Daytona that's running hot, and I suspect the water pump may be dead. I've been told that when the water pump is in need of repair, it makes a noise similar to when a belt needs to be replaced, and my car is making a noise just like that.
The engine is running hot, though when I turn on the heater, I get no heat. I'm guessing this is because no water is circulating. There is water in the rad, but I have to keep refilling it as there is a leak in the general area of the water pump.
I had similar problems when the head gasket needed replacement, but I just got this done 6 months ago.
Does this sound like a problem with the water pump?
