Trust Deane’s Auto & Truck for your vehicle’s water pump repair Manchester CT. The water pump is a vital part of the cooling system. When it stops working, your engine could be damaged. Your car cannot operate safely without an intact water pump. The water pump moves coolant through the radiator and around the engine. Radiator fluid dissipates heat build up and protects your engine’s components from heat damage. Once your water pump fails, your entire engine could be damaged.
There are signs and symptoms of impending automotive water pump failure. One sign of an impending water pump failure is a noticeable coolant leak under the front of the vehicle after sitting idle overnight. Although a leak can occur anywhere in the system, you may notice water leaking from the pump while the engine is running. If you have a bad seal or bearing, continuing to run the car may cause serious damage. You may hear unusual growling noises. Your ‘low coolant’ light comes on and your temperature gauge rises above normal. You notice steam or smoke rising from the hood. When any of these symptoms are present, pull over and call Deane’s Auto & Truck Repair. (860) 896-1152
