The Water Pump's Purpose

The water pump is the heart of the engine cooling system. It receives energy from the serpentine belt. The pump circulates coolant fluid through the engine, absorbing heat and to the radiator where the heat is removed. The engine will overheat within minutes without a water pump.

Water Pump Maintenance

The water pump should be inspected at major service intervals alongside the serpentine and timing belts. The water pump will generally last for 100,000 miles or more but might require replacement before if it fails or if the timing belt requires replacement. It is often a good idea to replace the water pump alongside the timing belt given their similar service lives and the cost of accessing this part of the engine.

What are the Symptoms of a Faulty Water Pump?

It is important to know the signs of faulty water pump performance and respond with an inspection if any arise. Here are the telltale symptoms of a faulty water pump:

  • Engine coolant found puddled at the front of the vehicle
  • Buildup or corrosion around the water pump due to a slow leak
  • Growling or whining sounds getting louder with engine acceleration
  • Engine overheating

Water Pump Replacement Service

Water pump replacement is about installing a brand new pump to restore the engine cooling system to peak reliability. This involves a certified technician removing the old pump, inspecting the other engine cooling system components, and installing a brand new water pump to specifications. Service at Germain Kia of Columbus, OH includes the highest quality genuine OEM replacement parts.

Why Should I Replace the Water Pump Now?

Replacing the water pump now is important due to the risks. The engine will overheat within minutes without coolant fluid circulating and removing heat. Be sure to get the water pump inspected as soon as possible if you notice any signs of poor performance. We know the Kia water pump and its maintenance requirements inside and out.
