When you are travelling on the road, your engine reaches very high
temperatures. Water pumps work by pumping water through the engine from the radiator, which is then
recycled back through the coolant system. A water pump gasket works as a seal between the engine and the
water pump to prevent leaking and is fundamental to the cooling process. If your engine begins to leak
coolant, it is vital that you get your gasket replaced promptly to prevent further damage to your
engine. A visible sign of a coolant leak is a pool of water under your vehicle. Additionally, corrosion
and wear with age and use can cause a gasket to fail, which can cause overheating and water leakage into
the oil compartment.
