Water Pump Replacements for Audis

When Water Pumps Go Wrong

Your Audi’s engine has many parts that work together and generate great heat and friction. It also has a water pump, which keeps coolant running through the car’s engine block, hoses, and radiator, which keeps things cooled off to prevent overheating. If your water pump isn’t working correctly, you’ll find your engine overheating in the summer or freezing in the winter. Repeated incidents of your engine running at the wrong temperature can lead to gasket damage, messed-up cylinder heads and pistons, and even total engine failure. Common signs of water pump failure are coolant leaks, whining noises when accelerating, or steam from under the car’s hood. If your engine leaks coolant, you’ll see a puddle of blue, pink, orange, or green liquid. And if you see steam coming out from under your car’s hood, the water pump has completely failed, which is a pretty serious situation. If you notice any of these signs of a failing water pump, be sure to bring your car in to be inspected. If you don’t take action, the problem will only continue escalating, causing more damage.

Why A Water Pump Fails

Auto water pumps are typically designed to last for about 100,000 miles. After this point, wear and tear is a normal reason for a water pump to fail. However, water pumps can also fail prematurely if the cooling system is experiencing corrosion or if the water-pump shaft is out of balance. However, the most common reason for water pump failure is worn bearings – over time, as the water pumps consistently keep coolant moving, they will get worn out. Mixing coolants, or using an incorrect coolant, may also damage the seals and bearings of the water pump. It’s important to know the reasons why your Audi’s water pump would fail, but it’s also important to know what to do about it if this happens.
