The pump operates with centrifugal force which shoots out coolant to the outside drawing fluid up from the center where the fluid coming back from the radiator comes in through an inlet.
If you want your engine to maintain its temperature at the desired levels and not get overheated, it is important to make sure that your water pump is working well. The better the circulating capacity, the better will be the temperature control in your car.
It’s best to check your water pump regularly so that you don’t have the hassles that an overheated vehicle can bring, like blown head gaskets, heads that warp and a whole lot of wear and tear on your vehicle. Signs that it needs replacing could be a noise or maybe even coolant leaking.
Considering that the pump is really the heart of the cooling system in your car, it pays to make sure that it gets replaced when necessary
