Saab 9000 Noise and Overheating Due to Water Pump Failure

(11 reports)

The water pump can fail causing noise on the left side of the engine and overheating. Other symptoms include coolant loss and leakage at the front/left area of the engine.

 

The wheel and belt started making noise about the same time the lower radiator hose busted. Still looking into getting it fixed. -
