Did great work on my mr2 got the timing belt and water pump installed quick and clean even with a 110 degree heat.I will use him again
Arrived a half hour early and during the water pump replacement, he also cleaned out the entire cooling system. Peter also showed me a frayed cable that should be replaced soon, although it's work he doesn't perform. But really appreciate being shown the part that does need work.

Good and honest.
Paul was very nice and knowledgeable about my cars issue he did the job and even showed me the old part that he had removed. The only critique i have is that he did not use the Your Mechanic app/ or interface (whatever it's called) to update his location and status. I didn't even know how close he was to my house and went outside at the time that he was supposed to show up (the latest time not the early cuz the website gives us about a 30 min window) and he was parking the truck. So if he would have used the app I would have known he was on his way and would not have panicked thinking that he was not going to show.

Luis showed up a half hour early which was great. He was very friendly and courteous. I had gotten to my house only a few minutes before he did which meant the engine was still very hot when he started. Nevertheless, he went right to work changing out the water pump which is buried under the engine block. He finished the job in less than a half an hour and my car isn't making weird noises anymore.

Thank you, Joshua!! I've taken my car to the dealership for tune-ups ever since I bought it in 2006. They overcharge but I never had time to research a new mechanic, much less take it somewhere new. The last time I took my car in, the dealership said I needed some work done and quoted me a BIG price. Based on a friend's review here, I made an appt w/ YourMechanic and am VERY pleased. Not only did he do great work, he was very knowledgeable, easy to talk to and did the work for a third of the dealership's quote. I already recommended YourMechanic and Joshua to my dad.

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.

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.
