David came in on time and got to work right away. I was running a little late so my wife was the one who met with him initially. He worked quickly and replaced the part he was contracted to replace. Although this did not solve the problem with the car, he did a great job. The car has another problem which must be addressed with the dealer and it was beyond David's control.
David was very knowledgeable about anything I had a question about, he also gave me tips and tricks to keep my car running. 5 stars , will refer friends for sure!

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. He explained the process, recommend options and when there was a problem offered solutions. I would definitely book him again.
Couldn't say enough about him. Absolutely great service ! Will recommend him and your service to everyone.

I am very pleased with the service I received from YourMechanic and Godwin.
I have worked on my own vehicles since I was 18. I moved to LA 2 years ago, without my tools. I heard about YourMechanic.com through a friend of mine. Godwin called me the night before to make sure my info was correct, texted me in the morning when he was on his way, and was early and ready to go. Godwin was professional, informative and very organized. When he was finished, he went over his repair and also other items that were in need of attention. He actually came to my place of work to do the repair, and left everything cleaner than when he showed up. I am very pleased with the experience, from start to finish. Godwin Tsui, through YourMechanic, is now my mechanic to go to.

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.

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.
