Mercedes Water Pump Services & Repairs in Glendale
The water pump is an essential player in your engine’s cooling system. It draws cooled water, or coolant, from the radiator and disperses it through the engine block to keep the engine from overheating.
The water pump utilizes a belt to help pull the coolant into its pump and then push it through the engine block. From there, the heated liquid goes back to the radiator to cool down. It repeats the process continuously while the engine is running.
If any of its components break or fail to work properly, your engine can overheat and eventually seize up. We’ve listed some of the most common signs of a malfunctioning water pump for your reference:
- Dashboard engine warning light
- Steam from the radiator as the engine overheats
- Coolant leaks under your car or in the engine compartment
- Sweet smell of coolant when you approach your car (check for visible leaks underneath)
- Odd noises from the pump if it’s the belt isn’t working properly
The average lifecycle of a water pump is 60,000 to 90,000 miles. However, if your water pump is failing for any reason, your engine may start to overheat within 5-10 miles. Driving without a functional water pump can seriously damage your engine, costing far more to repair than the simple replacement of a water pump.
