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.

I hope my car doesn't have problems again, but when and if it does, I hope Joel is the guy to come and fix it. He was fast and he did a great job for under the cost of the original quote.

Christopher

While there was a price change due to the parts selection process on the website, YourMechanic DID call me and let me know the price would be upped, which was a very professional approach. Chris was a very good communicator and an extremely hard worker, he frequently updated me on his progress on my car, even sacrificing a socket wrench in the process. LOL I was panicking at not being able to get the mounts repaired without sacrificing a month's rent, YourMechanic keeps the prices reasonable and they really treat you like a human being. I've never felt so relieved!

Michael called prior to 2 PM to let us know he was running ahead of schedule (our appt. was scheduled for 3). We let him know that we lived 30 miles from the location of our car and he patiently waited for us to arrive. In the heat of the parking lot, he quickly and efficiently diagnosed and repaired the belt. Both he and the scheduling/payment process were very easy!
