Could be any of the mentioned above, the water pump, AOS or alternatively a loose spark plug.

Try removing the oil filler cap while the engine is running - if its difficult to remove (ie a strong vacuum), the chances are your AOS has gone.

It would be a good time to check for error codes if you have a scanner....
