Thermotec coolant pumps
In order for the cooling system to operate properly, it requires a coolant to be constantly circulated within it. This ensures heat transfer and, consequently, proper functioning of the cooling system. This is where the coolant pump comes into action. It pumps pressure into the cooling system hoses to allow the coolant to circulate in the system.
The coolant pump operation is very simple. It is powered by a ribbed belt or a V-belt. It has a pulley with blades. The pump comprises a part of the cooling system. The blades rotate to move the coolant. They ensure the proper pressure inside the hoses, thus allowing the coolant to flow between the engine block, the heater, and the radiator.
Some engines come with additional coolant pumps which support the main pump in the event of engine overload. This allows better operation of the cooling system and mitigates the risk of the engine overheating.
The coolant pump needs to be replaced regularly
The coolant pump requires regular replacement as it operates in a difficult environment and gradually wears out. The pump is exposed to high loads, huge temperature fluctuations, and a strong chemical – the coolant. Car manufacturers recommend that the water pump be replaced at most every second timing belt change. Failure to do that may cause the pump to start leaking or breaking down altogether, which is extremely dangerous for the engine.
The most common coolant pump failures result from excessive tension or misalignment of the V-belt, excessive wear of the tension and retraction shafts, impeller failure, contamination of the output channel, or worn seals.
