We offer a Water Pump Repair Service, water pumps are made of aluminum and iron and they play a crucial role in keep your engine and other systems cool. It has an impeller, which looks like a fan, and it circulates water and coolant through your car in the circulation system. The water pump is located by the engine and it must turn in order to function and circulate fluids — and it does this with the drive belts or the timing belt. This component is essential for your vehicle to run; without it, your engine could overheat, get damaged, or break completely.
One way to identify a failing water pump is to check for coolant under your car. You can also get your cooling devices examined and checked for leaks. You see, when a water pump starts to break, the seals often lose coolant we offer replacement, repair service.
It is vital to the health of your engine to have your coolant replaced regularly.This should be done approximately every 50,000 miles, as part of the regular maintenance on your vehicle. If you are not sure how old your water pump is, here are some clues that you may need a new one.
Potential signs your water pump in need of repair service:
- Coolant leaks (this is a red, green, or yellow liquid)
- Car is overheating frequently
- Car will not start at all
The good news is that it’s possible to get your water pump replaced for a reasonable price. A good mechanic should charge you much less for a water pump than a dealer, so ensure find someone honest and reliable. Many professionals recommended the timing belt be replaced at the same time since labor is the majority of the cost anyway. Be warned: do not pay more than $800!
So what’s going on when your water pump gets replaced?
Simple. We will remove all the coolant, first. Then, we will remove the drive chain and timing chain if it blocks access to the water pump. We will replace the water pump and coolant, and then we may need to replace the timing belt and drive chain, if necessary.
Finally, make sure you get an estimate from any mechanic before having work done. This is why it is crucial to watch for coolant leaking, so that you can take your time choosing a mechanic to perform the work for you. If your auto technician has to fix the fan belts and the seals in your cooling system as well, you may be paying more. And unless you have experience with auto body repair, it’s not recommended that you try and change the water pump yourself.
If you want to buy the pump separately, you can sometimes find one online or through connections for as low as $40. But don’t be surprised when the labor costs exceed the cost of the pump, especially if you want your car back reasonably soon.
Good luck with your car, and remember to watch for leaking coolant!
