Chao's proudly announces that all principal component components are made, manufactured and tested in property, such as bearings(life), impellers (pumping water), mechanical seal kits(sealing) and housings(ruggedness). If the water pump is broken, you may notice steam around the engine bay either due to the fact the coolant circulating the engine block is not adequate, or the pump seal is failing and hot fluid is escaping from the poor seal. NOTE: Some engines use reverse cooling. This implies that the coolant flows from the radiator to the cylinder head(s) prior to flowing to the engine block.
Leaks: One particular of the early signs is a coolant leak from the water pump. The water pump has a weep (bleed) hole in the decrease portion see the photo. A modest amount of dry coolant residue about the weep hole is normal, but coolant leaking from the weep hole is a sign that the pump is on its way.
