He is superb! I spent months looking for the perfect used car in my budget. I had nearly given up until I found the car online about an hour away. Godwin arrive early, was knowledgeable and professional. It felt wonderful to have someone who was there for me to evaluate the car and tell me the truth. He even drove the car and called out a minor issue. The report was comprehensive and he took time to answer questions. You will not regret the service. Godwin is the real deal and a true value add to your transaction.

All about Water Pump Replacement

The water pump, a container made of aluminum or iron, is part of the cooling system. It contains an impeller (looks like a fan) that circulates water and coolant throughout the cooling system, keeping the engine from overheating. It is located in the engine compartment. For the water pump to work, it needs to turn. This is accomplished either by the drive belt or timing belt/chain. If the water pump is not working, the coolant will not circulate through the cooling system causing the engine to overheat and get severe damages.
