Water pump
1999 Land Rover Freelander l series diesel wth air-con

Engine has been overheating, no return flow to header tank. Removed water pump but looks ok. If turning the power steering pulley should the water pump impeller turn. What is the drive arangement between the power steering pump and the water pump.
I would be grateful for any advice.

no its a l series engine as stated in vehicle description,k series engine is different engine altogether,

All accessories, (PAS, aircon, water pump, vacuum pump, alternator) are all driven off a single poly-vee-belt drive with an automatic tensioner,
