Water Pump Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Water Pump all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

  • When the water pump is replaced, the drive belts and timing belt/chain may need to be replaced as well.
  • The entire cooling system should be inspected when the water pump is replaced.
  • Replacing the thermostat at the same time as the water pump can help prevent future problems.

How it's done:

  • Pressure test the cooling system for leaks.
  • Remove and replace the water pump if bad.
  • Fill with new coolant.
  • Install new radiator cap.
  • Install new thermostat.
  • Test drive car.

Our recommendation:

If you see coolant (green, red, or yellow fluid) underneath your car, have the cooling system inspected for leaks. Always keep up with the service intervals as specified by the manufacturer and get the coolant replaced. It is a good practice to get the coolant replaced every 50,000 miles. This will help ensure a long life for the water pump and the entire cooling system.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Water Pump?

  • Coolant (green, red or yellow fluid) is leaking.
  • Car is overheating.
  • Car does not start.

How important is this service?

A car’s engine generates so much heat that it can damage itself if it is not cooled down. To prevent this, your vehicle has a cooling system. The water pump is responsible for circulating coolant through the engine. This coolant absorbs heat from the engine, and is then cooled down by a fan. When the water pump malfunctions, the cooling system has no way of sending coolant into the engine, and the engine will overheat, which can cause severe damage.

It's not so much a bad review about Patrick, but my entire experience. After reading the positive reviews, I called yourmechanic thinking i could save on towing expenses and have the diagonstic charge of $70 rolled into the final repaircost. I didn't like that i had to give my credit card info before the service was even done, but i gave it anyway. My appt was at night and I asked if the mechanic would have proper lighting and everything he needed to make the repair. I was told yes. Patrick arrived after dark with a flashlight! That's it. He looked under the hood, and charged the battery. The car still didn't start. He checked some fluid levels. Then he said "it's probably a timing belt or an engine head gasket." Then he tells me his company doesn't even do those repairs! Why did I spend this money! I would have been better off towing it to someone who could fix it. I am disappointed I wasn't told this in advance. Dude comes over, shines his light, says I can't fix it, give me $70 bucks. Great work if you can get it. The next day, I do some calling around. I call another garage highly rated by patrons. I talk to someone there and describe my experience. They tell me your car (Mazda Tribute) DOESN'T EVEN HAVE A TIMING BELT! They also didn't understand how it could be a head gasket if the engine light/overheating light never came on. I really don't know what to think. Luckily I had a $20 dollar off coupon, so it only cost me $50 for someone to shine a light under my hood and tell me, "sorry,nothing i can do!" I am not that happy about it. It doesn't seem fair or right. Now, Patrick was a super nice guy and I believed everything he told me at the time. He didn't give off the vibe that he was trying to rip me off or anything and he gave me a ride down the street on his way. Still, I don't like the fact that the initital contact didn't tell me there were certain things that they couldn't handle, and I'm a little surpirsed that Patrick brought up the timing belt when my car doesn't have one. You would think someone with over 20 years experience would know that. If you need an oil change done on sight, use the coupon for $18.95 and go for it. If you have something seriously wrong with your car, you are in the wrong place.
