Each pump is engineered to keep your engine cooling system in premium running condition and deliver maximum coolant flow and durability just like its OE counterpart. Airtex utilizes the same robotic assembly process for both OE and aftermarket pumps, maintaining the highest quality to help prevent engine overheating.
Features & Benefits:
Precision-ground and permanently lubricated unitized bearing assemblies
Unitized seals for exceptional protection against leakage and contamination
Durable housings that feature precisely machined mounting surfaces for proper sealing
The latest impeller upgrades engineered for maximum coolant flow
Hubs that are pressed on with precision-guided tooling
Boxed with tri-lingual instructions, application-specific information sheets and necessary hardware to get the job done right.
Every belt driven water pump has a weep hole that might leak a little in the beginning. Some seepage from the weep hole is normal during the break-in period (about 10 minutes), and does not indicate a defect.
Cooling System Maintenance | Tips & Tools
Without regular maintenance, cooling system components will degrade and fail prematurely, which can lead to costly engine damage. Protect your engine with simple preventative maintenance:
Completely drain and flush the system using Cooling System Flush prior to installation. Flushing the system is critical to prevent system contamination and failure.
Consider replacing the Radiator Hoses (and Hose Clamps), Thermostat and Radiator Cap as part of routine preventative maintenance. System contamination can cause these parts to degrade and fail over time, which can lead to severe engine damage from overheating.
Refill radiator with fresh Coolant / Antifreeze according to the volume and formula specified in your Owner's Manual. Inspect levels and condition every year.
