What are People Saying About Accurate Service?

“Everything from first phone contact to picking up our car was first rate. Thank you.”- Beth W.

What is a Water Pump?

The water pump is found in the engine compartment and is an important part of the cooling system. It is usually made of aluminum or iron. It encompasses an impeller -which looks like a fan- that moves coolant and water throughout the cooling system, helping to keep your engine from overheating. For the water pump to work, it has to turn. This job is undertaken by the drive belt or timing belt/chain. When the water pump is not working, coolant will not flow through the cooling system and your engine will overheat- which could cause serious engine damage.

When Should the Water Pump Be Replaced?

Water pumps normally last between 60,000 miles and 90,000 miles. However, even though they were built to last, they can sometimes break down and require replacement.

Symptoms that indicate it may be time to replace your water pump include:

  • Leaking coolant (green, red, or yellow fluid)
  • Vehicle is overheating
  • Vehicle won’t start

Because of their close connection to the water pump, it may be necessary to replace the driving belt and/or timing belt/chain at the same time. It is also a good idea to replace the thermostat at the same time as the water pump to help prevent future problems.

Water Pump Replacement at Accurate Service

Several steps are taken to replace the water pump and they vary depending on which part is responsible for operating it.

If the water pump is operated by the fan belt, the steps to replace it include:

  • Draining the cooling system
  • Removing the fan belt or timing belt and pulleys
  • Removing the hose that goes from the water pump to the radiator
  • Removing the bolts securing the water pump to the engine
  • Removing the water pump from the engine
  • Cleaning the engine surface
  • Installing a new water pump and gasket
  • Refilling with fresh coolant

If the water pump is operated by the timing belt, the steps to replace it include:

  • Draining the cooling system
  • Removing the fan belt or timing belt and pulleys
  • Disassembling the timing belt, the timing belt covers, timing belt, and all related components
  • Removing the hardware securing the water pump to the engine
  • Removing the water pump from the engine
  • Cleaning the engine surfaces
  • Installing the new water pump and gasket
  • Reinstalling all timing belt–related components, fan belts, and pulleys
