Dan was excellent to work with. I would highly recommend him and I will definitely use him again. He is quite knowledgeable about many types of cars and very willingly answers all questions and offers recommendations when asked. I found him to be very friendly, courteous and dedicated to getting the job done right in a high quality and professional manner. He even checked the air in all the tires and test drove it afterward. An overall first-rate experience with Dan.
Dan does great work and is a very polite and friendly. Highly recommended.

The job was done in a timely mater
Jose came two hours earlier, which would have been okay, but I was not ready. Being too early is as bad as being too late. I would expect an email or phone call asking if a change on time would be okay. Also, they didn't give to him enough coolant to completely fill the cooling system, which was completed with tap water. This wasn't his fault, since the system calculates the parts and order them automatically. However, my car now doesn't have the 50/50 water and coolant ratio. Plus tap water is not as good as distilled water. Other than this, he did an excellent job.

In the printing trade, there are press operators and there are pressmen, in other words, people who know where the buttons are and people who know how they work and how to fix them. If Russ was a printer, he would be a five star pressman. Our initial request was for him to replace the water pump on an old, barely working '85 Chev truck. By the time he was done, it sounded and drove like new. When the truck wouldn't start, the computer said the starter wasn't working, when he took it off, he could see that it was working OK and put it back on. He determined that the battery was the culprit and got a replacement. Shazam, the truck came back to life. When you find a mechanic that honest, that upstanding, that reliable and that hard working, you don't want to ever let him go.
Russell was amazing! He arrived promptly, was very courteous and explanatory about everything he did with our car, and walked us through the process of what was going on. We really felt like he kept us in the loop on everything, and even gave us some tips on other things to do with our car to keep it perfectly! We will definitely be having Russell again for any and all mechanical needs...and we recommend you do, too!

Nicholas is always professional, respectful and kind. He explains everything in plain English before doing the work. I appreciate him more than he could know. He has worked on my car 3 times dealing with several different issues. I trust him with my car completely. Nicholas has been a lifesaver concerning my car. He worked on my car in 20° te.perature and 5 inches of snow.

Water Pump Replacement Service

What is a water pump and how does it work?

The water pump is a belt or chain-driven engine accessory bolted to the engine above the crankshaft pulley. The pump housing has an impeller that circulates engine coolant through the cooling system passageways in the engine block and cylinder head, on to the radiator, where the coolant temperature is reduced. . The lower temperature coolant then flows back to the water inlet on the engine and the water pump continues the cycle.

When to consider replacing the water pump:

  • Coolant leaks or overheating. The water pump impeller shaft is supported by a bearing. Eventually, the bearing or seal can wear and leak or damage the impeller. Many water pumps have weep holes near the pump bearing. If you see significant leakage from that weep hole, it is time to replace the pump.
  • Bearing roughness or noise. If the water pump shaft does not turn smoothly or the pump is noisy, the bearing is excessively worn. Pump replacement will be necessary.
  • Timing belt replacement. In engines where the water pump is driven by the timing belt, it is a good idea to replace the water pump at the same time the timing belt is replaced. The extensive work explains why it is always recommended to replace the water pump whenever the mechanic already has these components removed for regularly scheduled timing belt replacement.

How do mechanics replace the water pump?

  • The water pump is usually bolted to the front of the engine. The replacement procedure will vary depending on whether the pump is driven by the timing belt, the serpentine belt, or chain.
  • On a cold engine, the engine coolant is drained to a level below the water pump.
  • Components that require removing to access the water pump are removed, including the belt or chain that directly drive the pump.
  • The bolts holding the pump to the engine are removed and the pump is pulled out.
  • The gasket surface must be cleaned and the pump mounting surface inspected. A new gasket, rubber seal, or RTV sealant, as required, is installed and then the new pump. The bolts are torqued in sequence using a calibrated inch pound torque wrench.
  • For applications where the water pump is driven by the timing belt, the timing belt must be removed. Typically, this requires removal of the crankshaft pulley, timing belt covers, and timing belt tensioner. Once the new pump is installed, new coolant is added back while bleeding the cooling system of any air. The engine is then run and brought to normal operating temperature to check for leaks and ensure normal operating temperature.

Is it safe to drive with a water pump problem?

No. Should the water pump only leak a little bit, you can drive the car. However, a small leak could suddenly enlarge or the pump bearing might unexpectedly seize. Either circumstance would likely cause engine overheating. If a defective water pump causes the overheating, it is not safe to drive because of the damage to the engine.

When replacing the water pump keep in mind:

  • It is best to install a new cooling system thermostat when you install a new water pump, especially if the thermostat is old or original.
  • Completely flushing the cooling system is a good idea when you replace the water pump. Flushing can be done before or after pump replacement.
  • The rest of the cooling system should be inspected too — particularly rubber hoses, which have a limited lifetime.
