Testing the water pump

Asked by Feb 19, 2016 at 10:42 AM about the 1996 Dodge Intrepid 4 Dr ES Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If I took out the thermostat and turned on the car, the coolant should continuously flow, correct? Proving the water pump is circulating the coolant. I did this and disconnected the top radiator hose, there is no water flow from the hose. Does this indicate that the water pump isn't working?
