Me and my girlfreind are driving to her house tonight when her 87 740 starts making a weird ticking sound. As we pull up to her driveway, steam or smoke starts to rise up from under the hood. I notice some fluid(not sure what it was) dripping and I smell a burnt rubber smell. I think the smell was from the hot fluid dripping onto the belts. I didn't get a chance to look at the water temp gauge so I am not sure if it was overheating or not. Anyway, could the loud ticking be caused by a broken waterpump?

it sounds like the water pump beraing has gone. the burnt smell is the belt rubbing on the pully cos the the bearing has seized.<BR>pop the bonnet and try to turn the pully you should be able to turn it slowy/graduly with a little efort.if dont move its gone. or if you would like to get a new belt, start the car and see if the pump is turning.i think its cheaper to replace the hole pump and less efort. good luck.<P>michael.
