I had an appointment today to replace the broken water pump on my '89 Honda Accord. Tien actually arrived a bit early for the job- not easy as I live on a winding street in the Berkeley Hills- and completed it with some time to spare even! He was very courteous, competent and professional. I am delighted with his and Your Mechanic's service and would highly recommend both! Len B Berkeley, CA

I was very impressed with Craig. He actually arrived a half-hour early, connected with a friendly greeting, got right to work & was quick. He also did a once over of my engine & tire & gave recommendations of matters to be taken care of in future, i.e. dirty oil, hose wear, tire not safe, etc. I also enjoyed talking with him for a bit following. I do plan to use your services in the future & to request for Craig if available. This was the first time to use this service, was a bit nervous in doing so & now happy & hope to remain that way. Thank you! Shirley S.

This is the type of mechanic you want to work on your car. I have all late model vehicles. My friend of 30 years is a master mechanic and concurred with all recommendations. Reuben was timely, efficient and courteous. My wife is a very dercerning person and she was comfortable with him.

Friendly, professional, efficient. economical and well-skilled at his work. After a brief post installation overheat glitch, the car has been running well during the last month. Only suggestion for improvement is it can be challenging to reach Whitney with follow-up questions by phone. I would contact YourMechanic.com for continued service by Whitney and I recommend him to other customers.

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.
