    I think my water pump is going bad.

    I am going to try and get some video of it, but I am pretty sure my water pump is going bad. But this is the first time that I have heard a water pump knock. Here is the thing. It sounds ALMOST like a lifter, and ALMOST like a rod. I put a stethoscope on it and the loudest is right on the water pump, and thats where it sounds like it is coming from externally as well. I am getting 0 knock on the logs even under hard pulls, and I have ran it lean and gotten 12 counts before so I know the sensor is good. When it first started happening, I thought I barely heard an exhaust leak.

    Talk amongst yourselves.

    My water pump recently went out. I started hearing a growling sound from my timing covers. Within 2 days the pump locked up and melted my belt. Im very lucky it didnt break or jump so if yours is going out I would NOT drive it...especially doing any hard pulls.

    When I took my covers of I could see metal shavings from the bearings right under the pump!

    I’ve never heard one knock. Not saying it can’t but I’ve just never heard one do it. A video would help if you get a chance to take it. If you rev it up to about 3-4 grand does it get quieter?
