Water Pump

The Water Pump is the most critical component in your vehicles cooling system. Without it working you are quickly left with an overheating engine and the possibility of needing a new one. The water pump on a four cylinder engine is usually located internal and is driven by the Timing Belt. Manufactures usually specify a replacement interval between 40,000 and 110,000 miles depending on the vehicle. This is usually something that should be changed out with a Timing Belt so as to not pay for the labor of opening the motor up twice.
