Knowing When To Replace Your Water Pump

There are many parts that are commonly considered wear items on cars. You likely would not be surprised to have to replace your brakes at regular intervals, or even to replace your car’s clutch if you happen to drive a vehicle with a manual transmission. Likewise, accessory and timing belts are usually replaced on a schedule to prevent catastrophic failures that can range from inconvenient to disastrous. You may be surprised to learn, however, that water pumps are also replaced as preventative maintenance on many vehicles.
