OVERHEATING!!!!

Asked by Nov 30, 2016 at 12:31 AM about the 2002 Pontiac Grand Am GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Okay so I have a 2002 Pontiac gt v6 I believe 3.2
liter and I have been dealing with problems with
over heating. My water pump went out about a
month ago and I replaced it. It worked fine then
started over heating again. So my next step was to
change the thermostat. I changed it then the car
was fine for a couple of days then it started over
heating again. So now there's a clicking noise I
believe coming from the water pump. I'll drive or
press The gas and I hear a clicking noise. I got out
the car , popped the hood and accelerated the car
and I can gear the clicking by the water pump but
they're is no water leaking from the water pump.
Then it was leaking coolant by my passenger tire ?
So I'm really confused and not sure what to do
from this point. If anyone can help me out or give
me advice I would really appreciate it..

Check to make sure the noise is not from the pulley that goes on the pump, that might've gotten loose. If it is the pump making the noise, replace it again

where did u get your pump??? i prefer ac/delco. others did not last. is the coolant coming from the weep hole on the bottom side of pulley or heater core??? some v-6s have a bypass hose to check too.

Check bolts that hold water pump pulley onto pump may have come loose.
