Radiator Water Pump Replacement

ALL OUR AUTO TECHICIANS ARE ASE-CERTIFIED, RADIATOR SERVICE EXPERTS.

WATER PUMP REPLACEMENT

If your car is showing signs of radiator hose or water pump leaks, let the Firestone Complete Auto Care tire and automotive service professionals take a look. Radiator hoses and the water pump are important components of your car's cooling system, and if your radiator hoses and water pump aren't working properly, you risk overheating your engine.

WATER PUMP PROBLEMS

Depending on your car, water pumps typically last between 60,000 and 90,000 miles. Radiator hoses can last up to 100,000 miles. Over time, however, both radiator hoses and water pumps wear out and if they are not replaced when needed, serious damage can occur. A collapsed radiator hose, for example, can quickly ruin an engine.

If you experience any of the following problems, bring your car into your neighborhood Firestone Complete Auto Care store:

  • Your water pump begins to make a squeaking noise.
  • Coolant is leaking from your car onto the ground.
  • Looking under the hood, you can see coolant even a trace amount seeping from the water pump weep hole.

If you deal with these radiator hose and water pump problems quickly, you'll prevent any further damage within the cooling system or engine. Find a Firestone Complete Auto Care store nearest you and come in for a Cooling System Diagnostic. We don't require an appointment, and we're open seven days a week for your radiator repair services.
