Was very accommodating and explaining in detail in work needed to fix my daughter's vehicle. My wife and I were due to leave for home (florida) and we were confident on Francisco repairing my daughter's vehicle. Had no reservations about Francisco in his abilities after just a minutes in meeting him for the repair. Great job.
Absolutely polite and professional. Great work and left everything cleaner than when he started. Highly recommend.

Very professional and honest mechanic. He saved me a fortune by showing me how my local dealer was trying to cheat me. He came early and even went out of his way to buy a part for my vehicle. The dealer wanted to charge $2700 for the work, but he charged me around $400.
Great mechanic

Chris was great. Unfortunately he came in the middle of another Yourmechanic's unfinished job which we found out was re-quoted incorrectly, so Chris was unable to complete it. This was not his fault at all and he was great, though the car still isn't fixed.i would recommend Chris, but I'm not sure I'm sold on Yourmechanic.com just yet.

Steven contacted me and offered to come early to perform the repairs. While doing his initial inspection, Steven discovered my rear brakes needed to be replaced and suggested replacing a couple belts sine he was replacing the water pump. Steven picked up the additial parts and returned to perform the work. Steven completed the repairs in a timely fashion and re-inspected the repairs followed by a test drive. Very seamless transaction and I would highly reccomend.

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.
