Probably but the problem will be when vacuuming
plastic impellers absorb shock from stones and other hard objects, where as metal blades will break off causing an imbalance of the impeller

How to replace plastic impeller with brass(metal) impeller

I called Lowes then Utilitech and they sent me a new impeller. There were no instructions about how far to thread the impeller onto the post. I am going back in to thread it all the way to the top. I wish I had requested a brass impeller.

If i find metal shavings around the pully do i need to replace the water pump?

Sometimes a water pump will fail internally due to severe corrosion wearing away the impeller blades, or the impeller comes loose on the shaft, or the shaft itself may break from metal fatigue (caused by flexing due to an out-of-balance fan).

Many late model vehicles (Chrysler in particular) have plastic impellers to improve cooling efficiency and to reduce cavitation (drag). But the plastic can wear down quickly if the coolant is dirty and contains abrasives. The pump may not leak, but it may not circulate enough coolant through the engine to keep the engine at normal operating temperature.

One way to test for a bad water pump is to squeeze the upper radiator hose when the engine is hot and idling. Careful, because teh hose willb e HOT! If you do not feel much coolant circulating through the hose when you rev the engine, the pump may be bad. The other cause might be a bad thermostat that is not opening properly (remove and inspect the thermostat), or a clogged radiator.

Test it and tell us news (remember rated this).

Water pump impeller query

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.

Diagram for 2001 jetta 2.0. water pump needs replaced. where is it?

The water pump is driven off of the timing belt. Might as well do T-belt and access. while you are in there.

Oh, and make sure the replacement pump has a metal (brass) impeller. The factory pump has a metl shaft w/a plastic impeller. Once in a while these cause somebody a headache when the impeller seperates

Toro leaf blower Model 51591 from 2003 has started

Sounds like a piece of wood is caught under/between the impellor and the case/housing. When removing the impellor, you may find it has a left hand threaded nut.
