Vw water pump leaking?

In certain models of Volkswagen, the coolant level can start to appear alarmingly low. You’ll notice your coolant light keeps blinking, and this could be the first sign of your VW water pump leaking. It typically happens after you’ve driven your VW for between 100000-150000 kilometres. This might seem like a large number, but if you’re leading a busy life, you can soon find your odometer hitting these numbers. Another reason for the water pump leaking could be that the coolant system was not restored to its factory defaults after being replaced previously.

If you or someone you trust determines that your Volkswagen has a water pump leakage, then you should not continue to drive the car. This is because a leak in the VW water pump could cause the pulley to misalign, which can then result in its timing belt rubbing and generating friction against other elements within the engine. Eventually, if left unresolved, the timing belt could break, and the engine could sustain damage. In extreme cases, the belt will rub against the engine block and cause debris to enter the cooling system. This can diminish the coolant level in your Volkswagen and result in the water pump needing to be replaced imminently.

If you are convinced that the water pump leaking could be one of the VW faults that your car is experiencing, then you’ll want to get it looked at as soon as you can. If you don’t, then your vehicle may become damaged in one or more of the ways we mentioned above. To ensure that your VW water pump is functioning normally, come and visit Bob Mol Motors.
