Camr early got the job done... car running great. Will definitely recommend Duane and i will look for him for any future repairs!
My bmw 335i was overheating. Duane did the diagnosis, ordered the correct parts and handled the labor. Did amazing work and now my car runs like new. Plus he showed up an hour early. Recommending him to everyone I know that ever needs auto work done. YourMechanic saved me over $3K on these repairs so yes I'm a happy customer.

Joseph is great. He is on time and even earlier than expected. My car has a stubborn bolt that wouldn't open for him to change the belts. He didn't give up and his persistent efforts fixed the problem after getting a more powerful tool. I am greatly appreciate that he tried to do the right way by coming back with the right tool.
Joseph was here on time. He was polite and helpful. He finished the work quickly, which saved me labor cost from the original quote.

Robert did a good job on the car, what I like the most is the after service. He called to check on how the car is going and if I need anything. After 1k miles a minor accident happened on coolant leakage. I called him and in 20 minutes he appeared, although it was a weekend, and inspected the car, identified the problem and fixed in in 15 minutes and I was back on the road in less than 1 hour free of charge. I am really impressed with how he backs up his work. I will definitely keep using Robert's services for my car in the future.
Robert called and said he could come early, and I told him yes. When he arrived he started immediately. He was very pleasant and thorough. I would definitely have him work on my car again. 5 stars.

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.
