The water leaks from my car. I put water in it and within 5 to 10 minutes it has all leaked out. Is it the water pump?

    The only way to know for sure is to have a pressure test done on the cooling system. Pressurizing the system will expose any leaks. Sounds like your leak should be severe enough to see pretty well. Good luck.

    Possibly. Usually the battery would be dead after that long. Get the car running again first (hopefully it's just a battery issue!), then you can test from there.
