Question Water pump problem!

Hello I'm new here. I just picked up an '87 F-250 with a 460 that has one issue. It has a squeak coming from the water pump. Could this be an indicator that the pump is on its way out?

Hi, usually it starts leaking.. if you have an idler pulley check it .. if the pump is bad you can grab the fan blade and see if it wiggles if it does its shot also there is a weep hole at the bottom of the pump behind the pulley check to see if it shows any rust leading out of it if so then it is going out. oH. a lose fan belt well squeak as well.
good luck

Cool

A loose or glazed fan belt will squeak as well.
