An ACDelco GM Original Equipment Heater Water Pump is used in some vehicles to pump engine coolant during certain operating conditions. While your engine’s main water pump is mechanically driven and stops when the engine does, a heater water pump is electric and able to circulate coolant to the heater core during engine shut off, keeping coolant flowing and the heat going. This original equipment heater water pump has been manufactured to fit your GM vehicle, providing the same performance, durability, and service life you expect from General Motors.

Will ACDelco GM Original Equipment Water Pumps, Kits and other components match the quality of my GM vehicle’s original factory parts?

Yes. ACDelco GM Original Equipment parts are equivalent to your GM vehicle’s original factory components.

Do all water pumps look the same?

No. Water pumps can vary greatly in size and appearance depending on the vehicle they are designed for.

Can a malfunctioning water pump harm my engine?

Yes. The water pump is responsible for moving coolant through your vehicle’s cooling system, keeping the heat generated by your engine at acceptable levels, and helping prevent overheating. A malfunctioning water pump can cause your engine to overheat, which may result in severe and costly engine damage.

Does the water pump affect the temperature inside the passenger compartment of my vehicle?

Yes. As part of regular cooling system operation, the water pump sends hot coolant to the heater core of your engine, which transfers heat into the passenger cabin of your vehicle. If this hot coolant is unable to reach the heater core, then this heat transfer cannot occur, and your passenger compartment remains colder than you want.

Does the water pump work when my vehicle is turned off?

No. Your vehicle’s water pump keeps coolant moving as long as the engine is running, and stops when the engine is turned off. If you want to be able to circulate coolant for a short time after the engine has been turned off, an auxiliary electric water pump is needed.


Tips for Water Pump Inspection:

• Clean all excess dirt and debris from the water pump housing.
• Run your vehicle to increase engine temperature, and ensure the system is pressurized.
• Inspect for leakage at the water pump outlet housing or the rear cover gasket, and leakage at the water pump vent or weep hole.
• A stain around the weep hole is acceptable. However, if a weep occurs with the engine running and the coolant system pressurized, then the water pump should be replaced.

Tips for Water Pump Servicing & Installation:

• Determine the root cause of failure, particularly if the water pump failed prematurely.
• Clean and reinstall the coolant recovery reservoir before flushing the cooling system.
• Flush the cooling system completely, using power flush equipment or thermal cycling the system with clean water three times. The most effective method of system flushing is to use a coolant exchanger, following the manufacturer’s operating instructions.
• Do not use any non-approved flush agents, and replace the coolant according to manufacturer’s specifications.
• Clean all sealing surfaces, and make sure all old gasket material is removed before installing your replacement component.
• Never strike the water pump shaft, since this will damage the new water pump.
• Torque all bolts according to the manufacturer’s specifications, and adjust belts to proper tension (if applicable) to manufacturer’s specifications.
• Use sealant tabs only if recommended. Some sealant tabs or similar compounds may restrict coolant flow through the passages of some cooling systems.
• With the new water pump installed, turn the hub by hand and check for rotation.
• After installation, pressure-test the system for leaks and check for sufficient fan blade clearance between the blade and radiator shroud.
• Inspect related components in the cooling system, including your fan blades, fan clutch, engine mounts, radiator, belts and hoses, and reservoir.

Tips to Help Prevent Water Pump Failure:

• Flush your cooling system whenever the water pump or other system components are replaced. This will help prevent contamination from entering the system, which may result in repeated failure.
• Utilize quality coolant when refilling your cooling system with the recommended 50/50 coolant/water mix. Distilled water should be used, as hard tap water can leave mineral deposits in the cooling system and reduce coolant flow, or result in corrosion and seal damage. Contaminated or depleted coolant can also result in corrosion and seal damage, and lead to pump failure. Take care to select the correct coolant for your vehicle by consulting the vehicle manufacturer’s service information.
• Never overtighten your drive belts. Belts that are too tight may cause an overload on pump bearings, greatly reducing the life of the water pump.
• Inspect the fan blade. If damage is not detected, bent blades, loose rivets, and cracks may result in premature bearing failure. If damage is found, do not try to repair the fan—the part should be replaced.
• Ensure that your engine fan pulley (or clutch, if used) is seated properly on the pump’s shaft. If the fan wobbles during rotation, vibration resulting in premature bearing wear may occur. Also check the fan clutch for wear and replace as necessary.
• Inspect the thermostat and radiator cap. Examine your thermostat and radiator cap, and replace if they show signs of sticking or leaking.
• Refer to your owner’s manual for specific maintenance information.
