Robert was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly when he came to replace my water pump and timing belt for my 95 Subaru Legacy. He noticed that my alternator belt was worn, so I quickly grabbed one from the shop down the street and he replaced it at no charge. Robert was friendly enough to let me watch him work on the car from start to finish and answered all of my questions. Great guy, great work.
Robert was great! New exactly what he was doing and even gave me an estimate on other work that needs to be done. I will request Robert each time I have work done!

Theo did a tremendous job. I was skeptical about this service being able to work on my BMW (thermostat/water Pump). Theo knew exactly what he was doing and completed the task in about 4.5 hours. This service allows me to provide my own parts and control labor costs. Yes, I will use this service again, I had a 5 star experience.

Outstanding. James showed up on time, did the work in about two hours, made sure it was all ok before he left. He's professional, courteous and helpful. I would not hesitate to use James again--and YourMechanic. Firestone quoted $800.00 to do this job (replace water pump) and I paid about $120.00 for the job. Thank you.

Awesome, courteous service from minute one! Way more affordable than 2 quotes I received from other local car repairs and sooo convenient! Rod was not only on-time but arrived a few minutes before the appointment. Very friendly, knowledgeable and to the point. I will NEVER repair my car with anyone else, you have a customer for life!

This is my 3rd time using Harish and he always gets the job done and it is never more than quoted price. He also communicates very well if there is any issue. Today he was running late, but he called with plenty of time to inform me. Normally he is early! Thanks again!

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.
