He was nice, answered any questions, on time, good person to work with
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.

Aaron returned to complete the job he found was bigger than what either of us expected Friday. He arrived on time and completed the work when he said he would. Truck runs great now! Highly recommend Aaron for your Chevy needs.

Terrific! Showed up on time. Professionally went to work immediately. Knew exactly what to do and completed the job in amazing time. Cleaned up and... done! What wonderful service! Had I gone to 'the shop'...it would have cost nearly a $1000. Instead it was under $250.00. If your car is outside warranty it is insane to not use this service.

Ryan was the Bomb dot Com. He really knows what he's doing. He brought to my attention was needs to be done next. The dealer told me something else that was like $1,400. To replace my Power Steering rack. Ryan says all I need to do is change the pump it will stop the leak. He explained over time the brackets get loose and it needs to be changed. I definitely want him to service my car again. He replaced my Water pump and thermostat added coolant he told me I needed another one because it wasn't enough. But overall Ryan was excellent. Thanks a million

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.
