Signs You Need a New Water Pump

water pumpLiving in Escondido, you put your car through a lot every summer, just by driving it around on those especially scorching hot days in June, July, and August. On those days, your water pump is essential to keeping your engine running at an appropriate temperature. If it malfunctions, your vehicle could be in real trouble, especially when the ambient temperature reaches over 90 degrees and your engine’s temperature starts to rise. So how can you tell if you may need a new water pump? Look for these signs.

A Puddle of Coolant Under the Front of Your Car

When you park in your driveway or garage, does your car leave behind a small puddle of coolant? Is that puddle located toward the front of your vehicle in the center? If this is the case, you likely have a leaking water pump, and you should get it replaced before it fails.

Your Engine Keeps Overheating

Does your engine overheat whenever you drive it for more than a few minutes? If your fan is working, your water pump may not be circulating coolant through your engine. This could be the reason for your engine overheating, and replacing the water pump could fix the problem.

Watch for steam emitting from your radiator, especially when idling or sitting in stop-and-go traffic. This will tell you that your engine is overheating, even if you your car’s temperature gauge is not working for some reason.

An Intermittent, High-Pitched Sound From Your Motor

This sound could be a loose water pump pulley, which is a sign that you need a new water pump. It could also be a sign that the water pumps bearings are going, which will also mean replacing your water pump.
