You’re probably already familiar with your car’s radiator and the importance of the coolant in the system. You know they’re supposed to keep the engine running cool under all driving conditions.
But what you may not know is that the cooling system only works if the coolant continues to circulate through the engine and radiator. Without that circulation, no amount of coolant will keep the engine from overheating.
That’s what the water pump is for: It circulates the coolant through the engine and into the radiator, where it can release the engine’s heat to the outside air. Then it returns that coolant to the engine where it can begin the process all over again.
So your car’s water pump is critical for keeping your engine running cool. If it develops a problem, such as a leak or damage to the impeller, it needs to be replaced.
