What is a water pump and how does it work?
The water pump is a belt or chain-driven engine accessory bolted to the engine above the crankshaft pulley. The pump housing has an impeller that circulates engine coolant through the cooling system passageways in the engine block and cylinder head, on to the radiator, where the coolant temperature is reduced. . The lower temperature coolant then flows back to the water inlet on the engine and the water pump continues the cycle.
When to consider replacing the water pump:
- Coolant leaks or overheating. The water pump impeller shaft is supported by a bearing. Eventually, the bearing or seal can wear and leak or damage the impeller. Many water pumps have weep holes near the pump bearing. If you see significant leakage from that weep hole, it is time to replace the pump.
- Bearing roughness or noise. If the water pump shaft does not turn smoothly or the pump is noisy, the bearing is excessively worn. Pump replacement will be necessary.
- Timing belt replacement. In engines where the water pump is driven by the timing belt, it is a good idea to replace the water pump at the same time the timing belt is replaced. The extensive work explains why it is always recommended to replace the water pump whenever the mechanic already has these components removed for regularly scheduled timing belt replacement.
How do mechanics replace the water pump?
- The water pump is usually bolted to the front of the engine. The replacement procedure will vary depending on whether the pump is driven by the timing belt, the serpentine belt, or chain.
- On a cold engine, the engine coolant is drained to a level below the water pump.
- Components that require removing to access the water pump are removed, including the belt or chain that directly drive the pump.
- The bolts holding the pump to the engine are removed and the pump is pulled out.
- The gasket surface must be cleaned and the pump mounting surface inspected. A new gasket, rubber seal, or RTV sealant, as required, is installed and then the new pump. The bolts are torqued in sequence using a calibrated inch pound torque wrench.
- For applications where the water pump is driven by the timing belt, the timing belt must be removed. Typically, this requires removal of the crankshaft pulley, timing belt covers, and timing belt tensioner. Once the new pump is installed, new coolant is added back while bleeding the cooling system of any air. The engine is then run and brought to normal operating temperature to check for leaks and ensure normal operating temperature.
Is it safe to drive with a water pump problem?
No. Should the water pump only leak a little bit, you can drive the car. However, a small leak could suddenly enlarge or the pump bearing might unexpectedly seize. Either circumstance would likely cause engine overheating. If a defective water pump causes the overheating, it is not safe to drive because of the damage to the engine.
When replacing the water pump keep in mind:
- It is best to install a new cooling system thermostat when you install a new water pump, especially if the thermostat is old or original.
- Completely flushing the cooling system is a good idea when you replace the water pump. Flushing can be done before or after pump replacement.
- The rest of the cooling system should be inspected too — particularly rubber hoses, which have a limited lifetime.

Why you drive your Silverado 1500 HD.
While it may not be difficult to buy replacement parts for Chevrolet vehicles, these days the necessity for nothing but the absolute best are required to repair your car or truck. Chevrolet automobile owners have become used to a certain level of dependability when driving their Silverado 1500 HD around town. You bought your Silverado 1500 HD because its reliability and value struck a chord inside you; so why would you be okay with second rate when it comes to great quality auto parts? When your Chevrolet Silverado 1500 HD left the factory, it was destined for a driver who prioritizes value in their automobile.
Why Water Pump replacement is so important.
Your Chevrolet Silverado 1500 HD has a water-cooled motor, and if there were a heart in that motor it would be the water pump. It turns along with the crankshaft via a belt that connects pulleys on each part. Along with the thermostat, coolant hoses, and radiator core, your Chevrolet Silverado 1500 HD water pump continuously recirculates a mixture of water and coolant throughout hoses and passages in the engine block and cylinder head; keeping operating temperatures down below the boiling point. If it fails, then the coolant temperature will soar and your engine block or cylinder head will crack.
There's no reason to delay... checkout is simple and easy.

What is an Engine Water Pump?
The engine water pump is arguably the most important part of the cooling system. Let’s get one thing straight before you get a little confused: though it’s called an engine water pump, it’s not exclusively pumping water. Usually, the water pump is actually pumping coolant through the engine.
While going through the engine, the coolant absorbs the heat that the engine is created as it works. Kind of like your water at the gym, right? The coolant then passes through the radiator, where the heat is removed from the liquid, allowing it to cool down again, so it can absorb more heat, and keep this happy process rolling along. The engine water pump makes sure that this process keeps on keeping on. This component is necessary for the proper functioning of your car’s cooling system, which is really important.
How important? Imagine working out in a sauna without any water, and tell me how long you can go before you start to break down…
Most water pump’s last a good amount of time, but wear and tear can cause them to eventually die, at which point they’ll need to be replaced.

Symptoms of a failing Engine Water Pump
Without that exchange of heat, the temperature of the coolant will rise and rise. And as it does, it will fail to absorb heat from the engine and the timing belt, causing the temperature to rise and rise and eventually overheat. So, if you notice a rising temperature needle from your thermostat connected to your dashboard, don’t ignore it.
Warning lights are there for a reason. And no, the reason isn’t to annoy you. They’re there to warn you when something’s wrong, like an overheating engine or problem in your radiator or pump. Keep your eye open for a warning light telling you that the coolant or overall system is hotter than they should be.
Sweating is good for you, but not good for the water pump. Keep a watchful eye out for any leaks under your car coming from the pump. This is general advice, not just water pump advice. But if you notice a leak pooling under your car, it could be your coolant, which tends to smell a little fishy, or sometimes a little sweet. That could be the result of a water pump that didn’t show up to work or a radiator that needs to be replaced
Funky noises and sights
A failing water pump could start making a whining noise. Yes, it’s going to be annoying. But the pump is just calling on you for help, so be kind and listen. You can also sometimes visibly spot a busted water pump. If the pulley that is attached to the pump is looking a little loose, that might be a sign that it’s time for replacement. Additionally, steam coming from the engine could also be a tell-tale sign.Get a Quote 1-Year | 12,000-Mile Warranty
How urgent is an Engine Water Pump replacement?
To put it simply, we humans get uncomfortable and start to feel worn out when we’re exposed to high temperatures for a long period of time. So does your car. If we can’t stand being hot for too long, neither can our cars.
Ignoring a water pump replacement can lead to catastrophic failure, which leads to a big ol’ dent in your wallet. You don’t want that. Get the pump replaced as soon as possible.

Water Pump Problems of Chevrolet Silverado 1500
1 Water Pump problem of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Failure Date: 12/15/2020
Coolant water keeps spilling from water pump. As I was driving on the freeway, the pump blew and spilled all the coolant and had to pull over to the side. Had to get it replaced paid $150 for the part and than labor another $150. Truck has less than 30k miles and the water pump already breaking down. New vehicles are now designed to break on you easily so us customers spend more on parts and labor.

2 Water Pump problem of the 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Failure Date: 12/06/2013
The abs kicks in at low speeds to where it makes a grinding noise and have a grinding feel at the door pedal even after having the brakes and rotors replaced. The dash cluster gauges stop working one by one,only the heat gauge work off and on. The engine begins to over heat when sitting in idle 10 minutes, sometimes 5 minutes depending on how hot it is,and the air conditioning starts to blow hot air but it begins to cool off once you start back driving. I have had the water pump checked,some had the thermostat replaced and it still does it only in the summer.

3 Water Pump problem of the 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Failure Date: 12/04/2013
Transmission will not shift out of 1st gear. Took to shop had been told speed solenoid, replaced both, flushed tranny & changed oil. Only to find out that need a new transmission. This truck has been nothing but trouble from the minute we took the plastic of the seats. Brakes, bearings fuel lines, springs water pump etc you name it have receipts for all of it. Under warranty & after. This truck is a lemon. GMC will do nothing, dealer just puts head down & walks away because he knows major issues in the first 90 days of owning & continues to this day. This pickup has never left the blacktop. No offroading, not hunting or anything else, no vacations in fear of being stranded. Junk junk junk & now I get to try to figure out what to do when christmas is 10 days away. I don't think my children want a new chevy vehicle ever.
