Hi my name is Tom and I am here to help.

All impeller blades are made of plastic. This way they will keep a tight fit on the inside of the water pump. Metal would not be able to do this.

Overheat after waterpump replacement


Did you change the thermostat? If not it may be the cause. You can check the thermostat by removing it and immersing it in hot water. If it is working it will open. The thermostat is usually located under the upper radiator hose.

Whistling noise coming from engine compartment on 2004 toyota sequoia


Troublkeshoot possible noisy idler pulleys, if they are OK, remove the plastic cobers & check for a noisy timing belt tensioner pulley. Water pumps rarely "whistle"; they grind. But, if you see any evidence of leakage at the weep hole on the water pump impeller shaft, replace the pump regardless. Might as well replace the timing belt whilst you are there, too.
