You mean a 96-00 water pump will squirt water out if they're bad? Where would it go, if it's inside the timing cover?
I never thought about the radiator having a crack, but that might explain why the top of the radiator is dry, and it only takes like 1/8 a gallon to fill it back up. Either that or the water pump is doing nothing and coolant just sits in the bottom of the radiator/engine block lol.
