Godwin
19 years of experience
Godwin did a thorough job inspecting the car and pointed out something important about an airbag light that was on, saying that this could be anywhere from a $10 to a $1000 fix. As a result we are going to pass on this car and keep looking. As far as I am concerned Godwin did exactly what we hoped for in terms of catching issues with the car that could have cost us lots of money to fix if we had purchased it.

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.
