for circulating the engine coolant through the cooling system.
Usually belt driven, although there are some electric models, the pump impeller picks up coolant in the front of the engine block and moves it through the radiator and back into the engine.
Common problems associated with a faulty water pump include:
- Bearing Failure that results in noise and in some cases damage or loss of the drive belt
- Seal Failure that results in leaks through the Water Pump Housing
- Impeller Failure, that is usually caused by poor maintenance and results in loss of coolant flow.
