The vehicle water pump plays a great role in the engine system, it needs to ensure that the engine maintains the right operating temperature, i.e. pumps coolant from the radiator and circulates it through the electric motor back to the radiator.
Why Do Vehicles Need Water Pumps?
When the vehicle is running, the coolant becomes hot after passing through the motor, so the water pump needs to send it back to the radiator for cooling, otherwise the engine will be damaged due to overheating.
What Is an Engine Water Pump?
The engine water pump is an important component of the vehicle's cooling system and is usually driven by a belt or electric motor attached to the engine shaft. The water pump pumps the coolant out of the radiator through the coolant system, into the engine and back to the radiator. The heat absorbed by the coolant from the engine is transferred to the air at the radiator. Without a water pump, engines can be damaged by overheating, and cars, trucks, excavators and bulldozers can only run for a few minutes before overheating.
Types Of Water Pumps
There are two main types of engine water pumps, and they have similar basic functions but vary by vehicle model and make.
Centrifugal pumps: They are the most common type of water pump and are usually found in older cars. They are driven by a pulley and belt connected to the crankshaft of the engine.
Electric water pumps: This is an increasingly popular type in modern cars, they are powered by an electric motor and can be controlled by the vehicle's Engine Control Unit (ECU). If you want your vehicle to have more control over the flow of coolant and be more efficient, an electric water pump is your best choice.
Signs Of Bad Engine Water Pump
A malfunctioning or damaged engine water pump can cause various problems with your vehicle's cooling system and, and even result in engine damage. Here are a few warning signs:
You find that coolant is leaking from the front of the engine or from the drain hole of the water pump
It is found that the high-temperature light is on, which indicates that the engine is overheated, and the engine needs to be shut down as soon as possible under safe conditions to avoid damage to other components
Grinding noises or roars are heard, which may be caused by worn bearings or damaged impellers.
Water pump pulley loose or wobbly
If you notice any of these warning signs, be sure to have your vehicle inspected by a mechanic as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your engine. Also, regular inspections of your radiator and radiator cooling fan are helpful. If your water pump has affected your engine operation, then a new replacement part (water pump ) is a wise investment.
