Chris was awesome and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He communicated with me throughout the day and recommended ways on how to save some money by doing repairs and maintenance at the same time time that require the same labor. He contacted me when he was available early and made sure everything worked to my schedule. He was very knowledgeable and most of all repaired my vehicle. After the repair, he took the time to explain how several parts work and thuroughly tested all parts and components to ensure they we're working cohesively. Thanks so much Chris and I will recommend and use him many times for my vehicle repairs.
Chris is such a capable person and so easy to deal with! I always have supreme confidence in his abilities when he works on my car. If he is not right on time it is because he is a little early, and I appreciate that.

On time, respectful, very efficient. He discovered problems and solved them before they could become a problem for me later. He is well worth the money I paid for the service and I will most definitely use him again. It feels great to have a mechanic that I feel is trustworthy and genuinely wants to do a great job.

My experience with Andrew was good. I would use him again. I just wish they got the repair information correct. It felt a little like a bait and switch scheme. Not a scam just a little like a scheme. Thanks!

Rocco is an amazing mechanic. He arrived 10 min. early. While he was removing the water pump, he noticed the serpentine and the AC belts were both cracked and needed to be replaced. So I got him the belts and he replaced them for free. He also replaced a blown fuse that I wasn't aware of. After 2 hours, the job was done. Then I went on a test drive with him to make sure everything was working fine including the water pump with no leaks. I was extremely pleased with his overall service and exceeded my expectations. Rocco is a super competent professional friendly mechanic. He is very honest, trustworthy and knowledgeable. He goes above and beyond his work. He examines everything and points out at anything that requires immediate attention. He is the best mechanic I have ever had work done on all the cars I have owned. I would very strongly recommend Rocco to anyone. On a 5 star rating scale, he rates 10 stars. I can't wait for my next service with him. I am an extremely satisfied customer.

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.
