WATER PUMP PROBLEMS
Depending on your car, water pumps typically last between 60,000 and 90,000 miles. Radiator hoses can last up to 100,000 miles. Over time, however, both radiator hoses and water pumps wear out and if they are not replaced when needed, serious damage can occur. A collapsed radiator hose, for example, can quickly ruin an engine.
If you experience any of the following problems, bring your car into your neighborhood Firestone Complete Auto Care store:
- Your water pump begins to make a squeaking noise.
- Coolant is leaking from your car onto the ground.
- Looking under the hood, you can see coolant even a trace amount seeping from the water pump weep hole.
