While the summer months bring about longer days, trips to the beach, and plenty of opportunities for you to cruise around with your Mustang convertible top down, there is a downside to the increase in temperatures. Though your Mustang convertible parts are certainly thankful for the warmer weather, your Mustang engine has plenty of reasons to be concerned. In addition to cool and clean air, a steady flow of coolant must flow throughout the engine, in order for your motor to run on those sticky hot days. That is where the always-reliable Mustang water pumps come into play!
Ford Mustang water pumps transmit coolant to the radiator, which then allows your Mustang engine to maintain a steady operating temperature. Mustang water pumps are connected to a belt on the crankshaft, and are designed to rapidly circulate fluid whenever the engine is running. The cyclical process that the Mustang water pumps participate in revolves around the necessary fluid flowing through the engine block and the cylinder head, followed by the radiator, and then back to the pump. If the Mustang water pumps are doing their job properly, your engine’s temperature will remain consistent, which allows the rest of the car’s engine components to work without any heat-related issues.
Though you may not be able to see how Ford Mustang water pumps operate in real-time, you will certainly feel the effects of a failed pump. If your engine is repeatedly getting overheated or if you are noticing steam coming from your radiator, there is a good chance that something is wrong with your water pump. Additionally, if any of the gaskets and seals that keep the coolant contained dry up, you will notice coolant leaking from the water pump and subsequently dropping onto the ground. If you are driving around with a worn-out Mustang water pump, your Ford Mustang could face a slew of internal problems.
