When I got back in my car today I heard a continual sound that was like something was loose under my car and dragging or a rattling/chattering sound while my car was sitting idle. I popped the hood and the sound seem to come from the timing belt/water pump area.. What can I do to fix it or is this the sounds of my water pump going out?
How do you know when your water pump or timing belt is on its way out? on 1999 Plymouth Breeze

most water pumps have a bearing, good indication and if it leaks replace the water pump, while you are doing that, chnge the timing belt too. Most cars that have a timing belt should have it changed every 50.000 miles
