That is the tell-tale from your water pump; it is telling. Time to replace it.

Default bought pump

HI, thanks for the reply. I bought a lifetime pump today from autozone, $60. I checked a few places around here to have the work done, and they started at $300+. Unfortunately, I have to work on it outside and it was 13 today. snow in forcast. I began to remove some items to get to the pump. I'm not seeing an easy way to remove the fan from the pump. I tried turning the large nut, but it turned the pulley, not the belt, but the pully turned anyway. I'm thinking of a screwdriver through one of the pump cover holes to wedge it. Not sure what else to try while pump is on the truck. Perhaps easier once removed from truck; hold the impeller and turn off fan nut. I'm not liking 2014 so far........
