Automotive Water Pump In San Rafael, California

What Is an Automotive Water Pump and How Does It Work?

Because engine temperatures in your vehicle can reach up to 195-220 degrees on average and even higher in the summer, it is important that your vehicle is kept cool on the inside. To achieve this, all vehicles, including those from Honda, Toyota, Lexus, and Chevrolet, circulate coolant through the engine. Coolant is a mixture of water and antifreeze and is part of your vehicle's cooling system. The water pump makes sure the coolant keeps moving through the radiator, engine block, and hoses to maintain a proper operating temperature. Your vehicle's automotive water pump is typically driven by the timing belt and takes coolant from the radiator and moves it through the motor back to the radiator, where the cycle begins again. If you have a bad water pump and do not tend to it, it could lead to engine failure or a coolant leak. If you live in San Rafael, San Anselmo, Gallinas, Kentfield, or St. Vincent, you can bring your vehicle to Northgate Automotive in Marin to ensure your automotive water pump is working properly.
