How Does Water Pump Work?
The centrifugal pump that is situated in the front portion of your car’s engine is called the water pump. In numerous cars, it is run and driven by the crankshaft belt. The aforementioned drive belt, which is also known as a V belt or serpentine belt is attached to the car engine’s crankshaft. The moment your car’s engine starts running, the crankshaft will rotate; thus, turning the belt. While the drive belt is turning, it will turn the blades that are located on the impeller pump. As this point the coolant will now pass through the passages inside the engine block, afterward, heading to the cylinder head(s), passing through the thermostat, upper radiator hose, going through the radiator, and going back into the water pump via lower radiator hose. It is also worth mentioning that as hot coolant moves going to the radiator it is then cooled back down through the air cooling fan. Moreover, in some other automobiles, the water pump is propelled by the timing chain or belt. On the other hand, others are gear driven water pumps are thrust by the camshaft. While some newer European vehicles like BMWs and Volkswagens, depend on electrically operated water pumps similar to the hybrid cars.
