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.

Russell

I bought a used Subaru and after owing it less than a month it just wouldn't start. After some bad luck with a previous mechanic I was worried I had bought a lemon. Then I called Your Mechanic and made my appointment with Russell. Russell is very knowledgeable, and knew all the little quarks about Subarus to check. He explained the steps as he went through them, told me exactly what he was looking for. Russell found the problem, a bad battery wire, and replaced it. It was such a relief when my engine turned over. Russell noticed that the engine sounded a little funny and he took the time to tighten some bolts, now my engine sounds better than ever. He also checked the oil and pointed out that it had been over filled. I will definitely be booking Russell again. His attention to detail and professionalism is so far above any other mechanic I've met.

Theodore

My appointment was late in the day so I was not surprised that the mechanic was a little behind schedule but was pleased to have gotten a call to say so. The job was done in good time and clean. Theodore's experience showed in our conversations about the work, other potential jobs, and whether they were worth it to me as I decide whether to keep the car. Very patient, careful explanations that expanded my own knowledge base. Definitely my first call for next time. Thanks Theodore, and a great price!
