How do you test a water pump on a car?
For testing the water pump, place the gearbox in the park or neutral position. Detach the radiator and run the engine. Let the engine idle for around 15-20 minutes for reaching the operating temperature. You can see how the coolant starts flowing through the radiator opening at operating temperature; otherwise, either thermostat failed to open, the radiator is impeded or water pump is not functioning.
Replace radiator cap, and pinch the upper radiator hose, use a shop rag to prevent hand burning. You can sense the rush of coolant with a functioning water pump when rerelease the radiator hose when don’t notice the coolant rush, and when an assistant depresses the accelerator to boost engine speed, release the radiator hose.
If the rush of coolant through the upper radiator hose is still nit felt, the coolant is most likely not circulating. Get into the passenger compartment inside. Switch on the heater for max, with the engine still idling. If you feel too little heat or no heat coming out, found the engine overheating, stuck closed thermostat, a clogged radiator and a broken water pump would need to find the fault.
