I think my water pump maybe starting to go bad. Here's the usual info, 82 Silverado / 350 (newer crate motor) / 700R4 / NP208C / 31" Michelin. Anyways Im getting something that sounds like a squel and whine. Its kinda hard to describe it but it has a lower volume and pitch of a loose belt. It comes and goes whenver it wants. It may do it with power, letting off, just whenever. It did stop though after about an hour of driving. My tempature sender is a little messed up so it reads high, a little over 210 at idle. I've already switched the gauge and it still reads the same. To be honest its probably the coolest running F/S GM we've owned. The guy I had overhaul my carb and distributor said too that it was the sender. Using the gauge as a guide anyways, heres what it says. At idle or slow speeds its a little over 210. At higher speeds or when the engine is working harder it raise about 30 degrees. Shortly after returning to a slower speed it will fall back to around the 210 mark. I've checked about everything else that could be making noise. I have a leaky power steering hose but the fluid is always at the correct level. I only hear noise from the pump whenver I have the wheel over all the way, ya know like every GM. I tried the altenator by turning on the heater, lights, CB, and all 4 KCs, not a peep. I tried turning off the the heater fan but the noise didn't change. I always lose a little fluid from the rad, about 6 or 7 inches a month. The noise really has nothing that makes it go for sure. I dont hear it at highway speeds though. What do you think, Am I hearing stuff or is something trying to crap out on me. Thanks June 2001 - The Texas Sawz All masacre begins.
