The water pump is a maintenance requirement that people tend to overlook. Having your water pump fail can cause tremendous damage to your engine, which makes it an integral part of maintaining proper function of your vehicle. Transmission Doctors have expert mechanics on staff to assist you with your car’s water pump replacement or your water pump servicing.
Typically, water pumps last anywhere between 60,000 and 90,000 miles however this is dependent on the quality of water pump your vehicle has. Water pumps are typically replaced around the same time that either your timing belt or accessory belt needs to be replaced. There are signs that will indicate the need for your water pump to be replaced. If you see coolant built up or dripping from your water pump then it is time for a new one. Also if your water pump begins to make unusual noises or squeaking, if your vehicle starts overheating, or if you find coolant in your driveway because it leaked from your engine, it is most likely due to a worn out or defective water pump.
Depending on the on your budget, we may suggest replacing the belts and hoses associated with your water pump as well.

Then we will remove any other engine components that may hinder access to your water pump. Next we will replace your water pump and all the hoses and belts associated with your cooling system. Finally, we will replace any other components we previously removed, followed by replacement antifreeze.
