Question water pump question

I was in a front end collision, and the engine is unscathed. The radiator and top hose are toast. I have run the eninbe a few times. Once to get it off the road during the collision, and twice to get it on and off the flatbed. neither for very long. I have a few questions:

-Where is the water pump located in the engine?
-Is there any danger of it running dry with the thermostat closed and the coolant level (presumably) above half?
-If so, what kind of damage could be caused during short periods?
-Is there anything else that could be damaged by running the engine on low coolant?

provided that the car was not already up to 200 degrees you'll be fine, the pump is driven off the timing belt and resides on the d/s front of the block...it's a toothless pulley but it's a large unit.

Excellent. sounds good. I turned off hte engine the moment the car was struck, so it couldn't have run hot. After that, it steamed for 15 mins or so before I drove it off the street. That was 30 seconds or so of operation. Thanks for the comment. I feel a lot better now.

Your engine should be fine, but dont forget about your tranny, the radiator cools the transmission fluid as well, if it was broken, you might have pumped all your atf all over the road, but you didnt mention this so i assume that its all right.

Good call. Thinking of how everything was damaged, I don't think I need to worry about this. the front bumper went under the other car's bumper, and only hte top of the radiator was damaged. I think the ATF cooling core is in the bottom. I also hooked up an aux ATF cooler in front of hte AC radiator, but that took the hit like a trooper. no signs of leaking.

Thanks for the tip tho. I hadn't thought of that.
