Another great job by Matt! Had to replace the water pump on a 2007 Cadillac DTS. Not an easy job, so unless you are a mechanic, I recommend calling Matt. His master mechanic experience was evident throughout the job. Had to remove a lot of equipment surrounding the water pump just to remove the old pump. Not much room in the engine compartment with these V8 Northstars. He did a great job with the installation of the new pump and also discovered a bad coolant temperature sensor that needed replacing. Put it all back together and it ran like a champ!
Mathew is an outstanding mechanic and even better person. I would recommend his work to everyone I come into contact with. Extremely professional and polite.

Jacob did a great job explaining what he was going to do and explaining afterwards what he did. He actually did some small, ancillary things to my car that "needed to be done" while he was doing his other work at no additional charge. I thought that was great.

I work two jobs and never had time to go to the mechanic and get my car fixed. After I found Yourmechanic, it was a no brainer. After booking Chad for an engine overheating diagnostic, he came to my job and found out exactly what was wrong with my car. After telling him that I was going out of town the next day, he found a time that worked best for me so that he can ensure that me and my car made it to my destination without breaking down and fixed my car THAT NIGHT! Great service, and the man is magic with my car. Fixed the problem the first time and for about half the price that an autoshop had quoted me. I highly recommend Chad for any auto-repair!

Noe is the best.... I so appreciate his kindness and expertise. He squeezed me in and worked late to ensure my vehicle was fixed so I could get to work the next day. Thank you Noe. I will always ask for him.

Robert is my new, personal mechanic and I couldn't be happier. My first experience with YourMechanic was this week when I had a huge water pump leak and the mechanic I had used in the past wasn't available. After discovering their website and reading several positive reviews--utilizing YourMechanic seemed like a no brainer. I scheduled my appointment for Tuesday afternoon and I received texts and emails when Robert was on his way and when he arrived. It awesome not having to leave the house to get my car worked on. Robert was prompt, courteous and a true professional. I can tell Robert is very detail oriented and takes great pride in his work. He offered to let me watch and answered all my questions. After he changed the water pump and tuned up my 2000 Suburban it runs like brand new. He also did a detailed review of my entire car and made suggestions on what I should keep an eye on. My overall experience with YourMechanic and Robert in particular was outstanding. I have already started to spread the word to several friends.

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.
