Why you should pay attention your faulty auto water pump:
An auto water pump failure can lead to engine overheating, which in turn can result in engine failure. In order for coolant to work properly it needs to constantly flow through your engine. Making it flow is the job of your water pump.
There are a number of different types of water pumps and replacement can vary from average to difficult depending on your vehicle. This is a job that requires a repair manual as well as help with tools and parts selection: all of which you can get from Advance Auto Parts.
