I paid for a pre-purchase inspection, and he found faults with the car, such as the a/c not working in all the vents which I didn't even notice myself. I rang him a few times with questions on the vehicle to ask for his advice, and he was so friendly and happy to help! The best mechanic I've ever dealt with!

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.
