About Water Pump
A water pump is an important element of the car's cooling system as it ensures that the coolant will continue to flow through the engine block, radiator and various hoses to maintain the optimum working temperature of the engine. It is driven by the crankshaft pulley through a serpentine belt (aka an auxiliary belt or an accessory belt).
What is the purpose of Water Pump?
The water pump is a simple centrifugal pump powered by a belt that would be attached to the engine's crankshaft. When the engine is running, the pump will then circulate the fuel. The water pump uses centrifugal force to move fluid outward as it turns, which will allow the fluid to be continually pulled out of the core.
How Water Pump Works?
The main function of the car water pump is to force coolant through the block of the engine, radiator and hoses of the car to extract the engine heat from the system. The water pump will most frequently push off the crankshaft pulley, or the crankshaft itself.
Where is Water Pump Located?
The water pump is a centrifugal pump powered by a belt that will be attached to the engine's crankshaft. The coolant surrounding the radiator will then flow through the engine and then back to the radiator again. The water pump has a shaft at one end with a pulley, then a rotor at the other end.
