How to replace water pump


The water pump is driven by the timing belt which should also be replaced. This is not a job for anyone but an experienced mechanic and involves a considerable amount of engine disassembly. Your best bet is to take it to a shop.

This water pump is making funny noise how can i solve this


A water pump on any auto making noise is a sign of bearing failure on the water pump drive stem. The only remedy is to have the water pump replaced or replace it yourself. The bearing gets water intrusion or dries out and the bearing fails. The water pump is not expensive but labor costs can be substantial depending upon the location of the water pump. Many water pumps are driven by the timing belt on smaller cars. Gaining access to the water pump often involves removing the timing belt cover and the timing belt. Failure to reinstall the timing belt in the exact same position as it was removed can cause catastrophic engine failure. Without your vehicle make and model this response is generic most vehicles.
