When your car is running it's important that it maintains the proper temperature, which is why the water pump is so important. Not only does it pump water, as the name suggests, but it also pumps coolant into the engine when needed.

If your engine is not kept at the proper temperature, the engine can suffer some rather serious and irreversible damage. A good way to tell if your water pump is working properly is to keep an eye on the engine temperature. Are you getting any high readings? In addition, check for leaks where you park. It could be leaking, water, coolant, or a combination of both.

Keep these important tips in mind about water pumps:

  • Only replace with a new part: This is not a part you can repair, or just switch out with a used part. If there is leaking, then you need to purchase a brand new water pump in order to ensure that it performs properly.

  • Refer to your owners manual: There is a wide selection of water pumps available on the market, so as always it's best to refer to your owner's manual. These pumps vary in pricing and quality.

A water pump plays an important role in maintaining the proper engine temperature in your vehicle. If you suspect it is leaking or failing, it’s time to get it replaced.

Buick Enclave - Water Pump - New Albany, Ohio
Alex was on time and very professional, not to mention very knowledgeable about not only my Buick Enclave but cars in general. He identified the cause of my car overheating quickly and found a small leak in the water pump and replaced the cooling fluid. Problem solved. I would definitely recommend him for further work!

Jeep Cherokee - Water Pump Replacement - Rio Rancho, New Mexico
I was kept up to the minute as to Mr. Sanchez's progress in route to my location. When he arrived he introduced himself and we discussed the problem(s). He was very professional we briefly discussed his experience, then he went right t work. The work was done in an efficient manner, utilizing ll new parts and fluids. When the work was completed he explained what was done ( gave me the old serpentine belt) and we started up my Jeep. He took some additional info and photos, explained a few thing, then made suggestions for possible work needs. I would not hesitate to recommend him and utilize him through your service...Thanks Augustine.
