Water pump is a vital part of your vehicle. It must consistently circulate coolant to the radiator, to keep the engine from overheating. If you know that the water pump is due for replacement, or if you suspect that something is wrong with the water pump, bring your vehicle to our Fremont auto repair shop for an evaluation and water pump service or replacement. Water pump failure can cause severe engine damage – don’t take that risk.
Water pump, being a mechanical device with moving parts and moving high temperature fluid, is subject to mechanical and thermal stress. This can result in coolant leaks – due to a bearing or a seal wear. Significant leakage form the weep hole is a sign that it’s time to replace the water pump. While it is possible to drive a vehicle with just a small water pump leak, we do not recommend it. If there is a leak, there is always a possibility that it will suddenly enlarge, or that pump bearing might seize, which can result in engine overheating and engine damage.
Bearing noise is often a sign that it is excessively worn and it’s time to replace the water pump.
We also recommend water pump replacement when performing the timing belt replacement. The cost of the part (the water pump) is relatively low compared to the labor cost of disassembling parts of the vehicle to get to the water pump – during the timing belt replacement, technicians will have removed most of the necessary components, so there is very little labor cost involved in replacing the water pump at this time.
When replacing the water pump, we will also check and may need to replace cooling system thermostat, and of course we will check condition of the hoses, as they have limited lifespan, and will go brittle with age – this may cause leaks and coolant loss.
