Learn about our Subaru Water Pump Replacement Service at Hanson Subaru in Olympia, WA

If you think about it, it's kind of weird that we all just take the internal combustion engine in stride. After all, sitting just a few feet in front of you as you drive a long, a complex chain reaction generates thousands of explosions per minute inside a small, metal box. When you put it that way, it sounds pretty dangerous!

It's the cooling system that keeps that process safe and controlled. A water pump pushes coolant (sometimes better known as antifreeze) through the system, drawing heat away from the engine and exchanging it with the outside air. If your water pump stops working, the engine could start to overheat. This can have severe consequences! When an engine gets too hot, it can warp, crack and even "throw a rod" -- utterly destroying the engine. When your water pump isn't working like it should, visit Hanson Subaru and we'll install a new one on your car.

What Is Wrong with My Water Pump?

Most of the water pumps on today's cars are belt-driven, meaning a drive belt connected to the engine spins a pulley to make it run. Over time, the pulley bearings can start to wear out, and the pulley itself can come out of true -- causing loud whirring and rattling noises. Often, those noises are bad water pump bearings. Replacing the water pump should fix such problems.

Another issue that can cause a water pump to make obnoxious noises and not cool the engine properly is a phenomenon called "water pump cavitation." The water pump makes the fluid flow through the system, but it can form tiny bubbles which collapse violently, believe it or not, with enough force to damage the inside of the water pump. The shockwaves caused by these imploding bubbles can actually damage the metal impeller fins inside and even the metal walls of the pump! If your water pump has suffered this kind of damage, it's often best to get it replaced.
