Starter borehole pumps can run for up to 24 hours. However, your everyday borehole pump will run between 6 & 8 hours. It is not good for your borehole pump to run continuously.
A pump can fill a tank with water in 2 hours. Again, With the leakage, the pipe takes 2 i.e. 7/3 hours to fill the tank. Now, According to the concept used : The rate of filling the tank by pipe along with the leakage will be 3/7.
Replacing a water pump is difficult and best handled by a professional. In some vehicles, the timing belt is used to turn the water pump so installing one yourself can damage the engine if done incorrectly.
Water pumps are designed to last at least 100,000 miles, however, if your water pump fails, you should replace it with a high-quality original-equipment level unit. Less expensive replacement pumps are available, but they might only have a service life of 30,000 miles.
The water pump is one of the vehicle components that may never require replacement if your vehicle is well-taken care of. You can own a car for over 15 years and never have to replace the water pump. That`s not to say that it can`t develop a problem.
Heating and cooling may be affected by the vehicle. The car may begin to overheat as well. It is possible to drive your vehicle without a water pump, but not good to. Some people in the racing circuit or who drive racing vehicles purposefully remove their water pumps to obtain more horsepower to their engine.
The water pump on your Toyota Corolla is what controls the coolant flow through your engine and radiator. Without it, the coolant would just sit and boil inside your engine, and cause it to overheat!

Yes, and it won`t affect or harm the pump or any other components. Plus, you can turn it on and off with the flick of the switch. However, it`s not necessary to turn it on and off for each use. Once a water pump pressurizes the lines, it waits for the pressure to drop before it starts going again.
Complete step-by-step answer: It is said that 3 pumps work 8 hours a day. These 3 pumps can empty a tank in 2 days. 8 hours a day means these 3 pumps work \[\left( 2\times 8 \right)\] hours in 2 days, which means that they can empty a tank in 16 hours.
You should replace the water pump after 60,000 to 100,000 miles for most modern vehicles. If your car is new, there is no need to worry about it. However, if you drive an older car, be sure to mention it to your mechanic.
It is a common practice to also replace the vehicle`s thermostat when doing a water pump replacement. It is not always needed, but if you suspect that your engine got hot when the water pump failed, it`s a good idea to take care of it.
Common problems include overheating, leakage, low water pressure, noisy operation, and cavitation. These problems can be prevented or fixed by regular maintenance, inspection, and replacement of worn-out parts.
Age and wear

Like all moving and rotating components, brushes wear and windings short. The most common cause of water pump failure is simply from age and wear of its electric motor. Over time, most parts in a car or truck, auxiliary pumps included, start to break down due to constant wear and tear.

One of the common signs of bad water pump functionality is overheating. The pump may not leak coolant, but the pump mechanism itself may have failed. Over time the fins of the pump can actually wear down to the point where they are no longer moving coolant.
Engine noise

Another symptom of a failing water pump is engine noise. If you hear a squealing noise coming from the front of your engine, it could be an indication that the water pump is starting to fail. This noise is usually caused by a loose or damaged pulley that the water pump uses to circulate coolant.

Finally, if you hear a high-pitched whining noise that comes from the front of your vehicle`s engine, it could be a sign that the water pump is dying. The water pump uses a pulley or belt in its operation, and if this pulley is too loose, it will make a whining sound that some describe as harmonic buzzing.
Changing a timing belt and water pump can take anywhere from 1-3 hours depending on your skill level, so make sure you have the time and space to complete the job.
Replacing a water pump is difficult and best handled by a professional. In some vehicles, the timing belt is used to turn the water pump so installing one yourself can damage the engine if done incorrectly.
The average lifespan of a water pump is similar to its life span of a timing belt. They usually last from 60,000miles to 90,000miles with proper care.

the most relevant questions and answers related to your specific issue

My water pump is leaking but I replaced timing belt and pump a year ago. Can I just replace the water pump this time?
ANSWER : Hello. You can just replace the water pump in this case. Although, the cost of just the timing belt is fairly negligible in comparison to the total labor of the job. My estimator says the water pump is a 6.5 hour job. Multiply that by whatever the shop rate is and you have the total labor without parts. You end up saving about $100 or less on parts if you only replace the pump.

The deciding factor will be the condition of the timing belt. If it has problems, you won’t be saving yourself any money by reusing it. In addition, there are seals and pulleys that may need to be replaced as well.

Assuming all the related parts were replaced the first time around, there isn’t a reason you can’t reuse them. I would say you should weigh the savings of reusing them against the actual condition of the parts. This is best determined after a complete disassembly. Keep in mind, time estimates will vary a bit depending on many factors. Either way, the labor is the largest cost.

If you would like to have the water pump replaced, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to perform this service at your convenience.

Can a jeep run and drive without a water pump??
ANSWER : Driving or running the engine without the water pump working to circulate the coolant through the motor will cause the motor to overheat and may damage the engine costing thousands of dollars versus using a tow truck to take the vehicle to the shop that will cost a lot less. I would not recommend running the engine more than a few minutes at a time or you will overheat it.

I’m curious how long the vacuum pump replacement will take on my VW Beetle
ANSWER : I will not get into the "misinformation" aspect but the engine most certainly does not have to be removed to replace the vacuum pump in a Beetle or any other VW product with the same 2.5 ltr 5 cylinder. We have a 2.5ltr equipped VW in the family and the pump was replaced last year. While the repair manual may say that the transmission has to be separated from the engine in order to access all of the vacuum pump mounting points, there are other methods to replace the pump that should not take more than a few hours – without removing the transmission. The typical failure point is the seal which causes the oil leak. The seal on the replacement pumps has been redesigned over the years in order to reduce the chance of future leaks.

I had my timing belt and water pump replaced 45000 miles ago. Now I am told I need to replace water pump. Is this normal?
ANSWER : Hello there, 45,000 miles is a short lifespan for a water pump on your 2000 Honda Odyssey. There are a few reasons the water pump will need to be replaced, such as a pump bearing failure, water pump seal leak, or rust/contamination damaging the pump. Faults such as rust or particles in the cooling system are formed in the cooling system over time and the parts break down, or regular coolant flushes are not performed. These particles can cause the pump to fail prematurely. It would be a good idea to ask why the water pump needs to be replaced or take note of any symptoms you are experiencing with the car before moving forward with this. If you would like to have an expert give you a second opinion on this, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your location to inspect the car and replace the water pump if necessary.

Does the water pump need to be replaced if the water pump belt is showing signs of wear? Or just the belt?
ANSWER : Hi, thanks for writing in. There is no reason to replace the water pump every time the belt is changed, unless the pump itself is damaged or not working properly. The belt may show signs of wear which is fairly common between 80k-100k miles. I would not recommend putting the belt service off as this can cause major damage if the belt were to snap. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to inspect your belts to determine when and if they would need to be replaced, while at the same time inspecting your water pump and cooling system to be sure there are no issues with it.

How can I tell if the water pump has been replaced as the previous owner claimed?
ANSWER : Hi, thanks for your question. The best thing to get when purchasing a car are service records. If the seller doesn’t have them in hand, you can go to the shop that did the work and they will have records of the repair details. If the car looks meticulously maintained, that is a really good indication of the condition of the car. And yes, the timing belt likely would have been replaced along with the water pump.

To add, an experienced technician can tell if the timing belt has been replaced. A timing belt with 100,000 miles on it will look significantly different than one that has been replaced. There will need to be some disassembly to see the belt, but it isn’t that much work to be able to take a look at it. The water pump on the other hand takes significantly more work to see. I can say that almost all shops, including YourMechanic, will advise a customer to replace the timing belt and water pump at the same time. This is standard in the industry.

If there is any question, ask for the records. It should be an easy thing to go to the shop that repaired it and get the information. Sometimes the customer will have to call the repair shop to allow them to release the information.

Good luck! Sounds like a good car.

My car still overheats, I replaced water pump and thermostat, and now after water pump install it knocks bad
ANSWER : Hi there:

Trying to diagnose an overheating issue remotely is incredibly difficult. However, there are three things you can do to attempt to solve this issue. First, remove the water pump, verify it’s the right replacement part and reinstall with new gaskets. Second, flush the radiator coolant fully, as the issue could be caused by an obstruction inside the heater core or other coolant lines. Third, make sure to check all electrical connections to the radiator sensors and components. If you check and complete all three of those tasks, and you still have overheating problems, contact a professional mobile mechanic to complete a car is overheating inspection.
