Did You Know About Water PumpDec 4th, 2016
The water pump’s like the heart of your cooling system, circulating the fluid throughout. It’s a small pump that’s driven by the engine: usually by belt, but sometimes by a chain or gear. The water pump only operates when the engine’s running. Water pump failure is pretty routine for Port Moody drivers. Some start failing at around 65,000 kilometers, but most fail by 160,000 kilometers. Consult your owners’ manual or Eden Autopro service advisor to see what’s recommended.
Since a water pump either works or it doesn’t, you need to change it when it fails. Water pumps fail in one of two ways: the bearings fail or they begin to leak. It’s possible to have a leak from a cracked water pump, but it usually leaks at the gasket where it attaches to the engine. For a cooling system inspection, call Eden Autopro.
