    Seeing as you have over heating issues I suspect it was done to try and hide this from a potential buyer...

    no expert, take of the cover to the thermostat and give the pump impeller a feel, could be split or turning on the spindle (without the engin running ).

    happened to mine, t belt and water pump done at the same time £300 lighter
