Water Pump

Letís talk water pumps for autos in San Antonio TX. The engine is cooled by coolant/antifreeze mixed with water. This mixture circulates around the engine, absorbing some of the heat. The coolant then flows through the radiator where air cools it down for the return trip back through the engine. Your family carís water pump is what drives this process.

Cooling system problems are the number-one mechanical failure in San Antonio. So the water pump plays a pretty important role. You canít get very far in TX without a water pump.

 After all those miles and years of pumping coolant, water pumps just wear out. You might notice a whining or grinding sound coming from the water pump. Or maybe see coolant leaking from the pump itself.

The precise location of the water pump varies depending on the vehicle. Some have the water pump attached to the outside of the engine where you can see it. With these, the water pump is driven by the serpentine belt.

Some have the water pump driven by the timing belt. The timing belt cover often hides the water pump with this setup, so you canít see the pump without removing the cover.

When you have Cordova Auto Center replace the water pump on one of these, you really should replace the timing belt at the same time. Weíve already gotten things taken apart and besides, the beltís likely been contaminated by coolant. And timing belts usually need to be replaced every 60 to 90,000 miles anyway so it just makes sense to do both jobs at once.

The opposite is true too; when you change the timing belt on this type of engine, replace the water pump while youíre at it. The water pump will eventually fail and getting to it is an expensive project. For not that much more you can take care of both the timing belt and the water pump at the same time.
