A water pump, also called a coolant pump, is a basic centrifugal pump that circulates coolant throughout the engine block and the hoses linked to it. The pump is only active while the engine is running, but is a very important part of the system. That’s why it’s important to come in for an engine water pump repair as soon as possible if something goes wrong.
The water pump is the core of the engine cooling system and is driven by the engine drive belt by means of a pulley system, which is connected to the crankshaft. When the engine initially starts and the coolant is flowing through, it does not continue through the whole system until the vehicle’s thermostat tells it to circulate.
When things go wrong and you need a water pump replacement, call 12th Street Auto Care Center. Our ASE-certified mechanics will get you an engine water pump replacement at our local Sioux Falls, SD auto repair shop in no time.
