We just purchased a used car from a private seller and, though we had known in advance that it needed some mechanical work, we were immediately beset by some potentially very exorbitant repairs that we had NOT anticipated. Raul not only came an hour early, but fixed the problem at hand well within the prescribed time and then identified very clearly and concisely what else the car needs. He explained things to me verbally, in written form, and also included taped comments onto the computer follow-up. This was all useful so that I could be sure I had the correct information. To top it off, he was friendly and polite throughout.
Very clean and quick work done on our vehicle..we were on the road ahead of schedule on this day...Thanks to Raul's work!! Excellent work provided! Highly recommend Raul's services! Thanks Raul! See you soon!

Jacob did a great job explaining what he was going to do and explaining afterwards what he did. He actually did some small, ancillary things to my car that "needed to be done" while he was doing his other work at no additional charge. I thought that was great.

The technician to performed the above mentioned automotive service was Mr. Jamahl Walker. On my appointment date Mr. Jamahl Walker showed up as promised at 08;55 am ahead of the scheduled appointment time. From the moment of introducing himself, he was extremely courteous and respectful. He provided an overview of his automotive training and stated that his father was a master mechanic and worked under him for several years. Indeed! it was a pleasure watching how Jamahl performed and install the various parts on my car. He could explain how the various parts worked in conjunction with each other. At the end of the day I highly recommend Mr. Jamahl Walker and his workmanship. On a scale of 1 thru 5, with 1 being the lowest and 5 highest I rate Mr. Jamahl Walker a 5+++++.

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.
