Scott is great. He showed up on time, was very professional, and extremely thorough. He not only did the repair I had scheduled, but also took the time to complete another repair that was needed, so I would not have to schedule a whole other appointment. or worry about driving my vehicle which a potentially bad problem. He even ran and picked up the additional part needed. Scott is very friendly, and courteous and is well prepared to spend the needed time to complete the repair ... not just rush through it to get to the next appointment.
Scott initially came out to do a diagnostic on my truck and based off his professionalism and friendliness I wanted him to be the one to do the repairs. He was timely and efficient. So glad I got him.

Frank arrived as scheduled and was not only very professional, but performed the work most efficiently. This was my first experience using 'your mechanic' and it was a great experience. I had never heard of them before; stumbled across them while searching the internet for a mechanic and gave them a try. Frank represented the company with great customer service and professionalism. I would definitely recommend Frank to anyone who needs service done to their vehicle. When I need service again, please send Frank and no one else. Thank you Frank, you're the BEST.

Jonathan had a difficult time with my Jeep Grand Cherokee water pump replacement. It took much longer than anticipated and once the pump was removed he discovered a rotted tube which also needed to be replaced. In addition, because I'd had to leave and absent-mindedly took the key with me, he was unable to test the repair adequately once complete which meant he had to come back later to complete the repair. Through it all, Jonathan maintained a professional attitude and demonstrated a dedication to getting the job done right and to my satisfaction. I waited a couple of weeks to enter this review to ensure that the repair 'stuck' and it has. So even though the job took longer and cost more (due to the rotted tube) I have to say that I am very satisfied with Jonathon and my experience with YourMechanic.com. Thanks!

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.
