About Water Pump
A water pump is an important component in the car, which makes sure that the coolant is flown easily between the engine block, radiator, and hoses. The coolant flown with the help of a water pump maintains optimum temperature in the vehicle. It is driven by a serpentine belt (aka accessory belt or auxiliary belt) from the crankshaft pulley.
What is the purpose of Water Pump?
The water pump is a basic centrifugal pump that is operated by a belt that would attach to the engine's crankshaft. Whenever the engine was running, the pump would then circulate the fluid. The water pump uses centrifugal force to push fluid outwards as it turns, which will allow the fluid to be constantly drawn from 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 drain the heat of the engine from the system. The water pump will most frequently push out the pulley of the crankshaft or the crankshaft itself.
Where is Water Pump Located?
The water pump is a centrifugal pump that is operated by a belt that will attach to the engine's crankshaft. It would then circulate the coolant forming the radiator, through the engine and back to the radiator again. The water pump has a shaft at one end with a pulley and then a piston at the other end.
