This was my first time using YourMechanic so I wasn't sure what to expect. Noe showed up early like a true professional. He gave me a time estimate of an hour to hour and half - and ended up finishing in less than an hour! Also, the actual total was considerably less than the initial quote. He exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend Noe to anyone who wants above and beyond service.

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.
