Charles was very professional and knew exactly what he was doing. Unfortunately he was unable to complete the repair due to some broken bolts that were discovered during his work. (Not his fault! It's a very old car!) Charles explained everything to me and told me exactly how we needed to proceed. We are now awaiting the delivery of additional parts, then Charles will complete the repairs.

This was my first experience with YourMechanic.com (or any mobile mechanic services) and I was really impressed. At the time I ordered, Milenko was assigned as my service provider and I was able to read his reviews before committing. He had 57 reviews, nearly all 5-star, nothing under a 4. Mike was professional, super efficient and a great communicator. He explained what he was going to do, worked quickly, and then explained what he did afterwards and made sure I was comfortable with the whole process. He would have finished quicker than the estimated 90 minutes but had to break for about 20 minutes due to major rain. As soon as the weather broke, he was back at it. I was super impressed with this whole experience and plan to do other repairs through YourMechanic.com in the future. And hopefully i will be assigned Milenko because he was awesome!

Very competent mechanic but arrived 2.5 hours late and his van ran out of gas in my driveway. I offered to walk his gas can to gas station to get him more gas in order that he could finish the repair. Unfortunately, repair didn’t fix my problem but I knew this was a possibility going into the job. Not his fault. Definitely an unusual experience overall to say the least.

Carlos was on time and did a good job getting repairs done despite difficult weather conditions. He was friendly and went over what he was replacing and why; and would take time to answer any questions we had on the process.

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.
