What causes car's to leak water?
The water pump is an essential component of the engine located at the crankshaft pulley. It runs by a chain or belt and circulates the engine coolant through the cooling passageway into the cylinder head and engine block on the radiator. Here, the coolant temperature is decreased and once reduced, it flows back to the water inlet in the engine keeping the water pump cycling. Some of the common causes of car leaking water include a leaky gasket of the water pump, a worn out bearing seal or a broken coolant hose.
When should you consider repairing your Water Pump?
- The coolant is either leaking or ovehearting Bearings support the water pump impeller shaft. Gradually the seal or the bearing can wear out damaging the impeller. Several water pumps have weep holes situated near the bearings of the pump so if you come across a significant leakage from the weep hole, it's a clear sign of car leaking water.
- The bearing is making noise. If there is a disruption in the running of water pump shaft, the bearing wears out excessively and it makes a noise. In this case, it is essential to replace the pump to avoid the car leaking water.
- You are replacing your timing belt. The timing belt drives the water pump in engines so it makes sense to replace them simultaneously. This way you will save time and money as it is simpler to replace the water pump when the components of timing belt are removed for a better scheded belt replacement.
How do mechanics replace the pump to stop the car from leaking water?
The procedure of replacement in the case of car leaking water varies and depends if the pump is driven by timing belt, chain belt or the serpentine belt.
- The coolant is drained to a level that is below the water pump on a cold engine.
- The mechanic removes the parts that are required to access the water pump. This includes the chain that directly drives the pump.
- Another way is to remove the bolts that hold the pump to the engine and to pull out the pump.
- The gasket surface is cleaned and the pump that mounts the surface is also checked. If required, a new rubber seal, gasket or RTV sealant is put in place followed by a new pump. Mechanic then torques the bolts in order by using a calibrated inch pound torque wrench.
- In instances where the water pump is driven by a timing belt, the belt needs to be removed. Usually this requires taking the timing belt covers, crankshaft pulley, and timing belt tensioner out. Once the new pump is being installed, a new coolant is added and air is extracted out from the system. The mechanic then checks the engine and brings it to normal operating temperature to inspect for leaks.
Is it safe to drive with a car leaking water problem?
Absolutely not! If there is a minor leak, its ok to drive but a small leak can lead to larger damage as the pump bearing might seize unexpectedly. This in turn causes the engine to overheat which can cause serious engine damage and be quite dangerous.
