    Hi Naijishi,
    It could be the water pump bearings or seals have gone. This may not show up on a pressure test. If the bearings have gone it will allow the shaft to move in the seal causing leakage when running but not when stationary. When spinning the pump will throw the water in 360deg making it difficult to pinpoint.

    You have to get the bonnet open first though! Good luck.
