ELECTRIC WATER PUMP
Electric Water Pump : This 12 volt operated electric water pump is used in situations where a vehicle does not use a belt driven water pump. Some or the electric water pumps circulate water through the heater system. Hybrid vehicles are notorious for having electric water pumps. Some electric water pumps are for the engine’s cooling system, and others are used for the hybrid system’s cooling. Some hybrid electronics get very hot and must be cooled. These hybrids utilize the engine’s cooling system to help keep the hybrid inverter and other electronic parts cooled by use of an electric water pump.
Electric water pumps can become faulty and the electric motor inside the pump can stop working. The water pump can develop a leak or the water pump impeller can break. Whichever problems happen, overheating can become the outcome. Guy’s Automotive repairs all cooling system problems including electric water pumps and hybrid problems.
