Being a very important part of your car, the water pump is often overlooked until something goes wrong with it. The water pump on your car’s engine preforms the very important task of circulating coolant through the engine enabling it to warm up faster and cool down more efficiently when it needs to. When your car’s water pump fails, you risk the chance of your engine being damaged due to the increased heat build-up. There are many basic signs of a water pump that is beginning to fail and noticing them as they are happening is the key to saving your car’s engine and saving you a lot of money on repairs.
When your water pump begins to go bad, you will notice overheating of the engine as indicated by your dash gauge. You may also notice coolant leaking underneath your car or a rumbling sound as the water pump’s bearings fail.
