Your car uses water to distribute engine heat. The water pump keeps water moving coolant pressurized around the engine at the proper temperature. Tucson can offer cold winter nights and hot summer days which can be hard on your engine. Your engine can crack and suffer irreversible damage if the water pump fails. A good way to tell if your water pump is working properly is to keep an eye on the engine thermostat. At Merle's Automotive Supply we tell customers, higher temperatures could indicate that the water pump or thermostat needs replacing. Call us today at 520-889-7202 to discuss buying a new water pump.
High-performance water pumps have close-tolerance impellers that increase coolant flow up to 30 percent. The water pump castings are precision manufactured with a powdered-metal impeller and feature improved smooth internal passages that more evenly distribute flow to both sides of the engine block while delivering maximum coolant pressure. The center shafts are larger than those found in conventional water pumps. They are machined to accept original fittings and mounting.
Adding a high-performance water pump to your car or truck will also require a high-flow non-restrictive thermostat. If you have serious street and competitive racing in mind talk to us at Merle's Automotive Supply about water pumps with cooling technology designed for heavy-duty towing.
