Driving entails attitude. There is no better way to drive your car than when you are in a cool mood, right? But sometimes, unexpected problems just pop up your way that will really make your day a total dismay. And how about having to pull over your Infiniti on the side of the road because of an overheating engine? Disgusting, isn't it?
It is a common problem of any vehicle to have an overheating engine. Sometimes, it will make you panic since the smoke coming out from the hood is already opaque. Engine overheating is usually caused by a defective water pump. What is the importance of a water pump? It is an essential part of your Infiniti's cooling system since it is the device that makes the liquid circulates by pumping it from the engine water jackets to the radiator. The water pump makes is possible that the liquid circulation is never hindered to avoid overheating and damaging the entire engine system.
The mechanism of the Infiniti water pump is based on the laws of fluid dynamics. While your engine is running, the Infiniti water pump pumps the coolant or the antifreeze through the water jackets in the engine cylinder block and cylinder head. The hot fluid passes through the radiator where it cools down before it goes back to the engine. This process helps remove the excessive heat produced by the engine. The Infiniti water pump is mounted at the front end of the engine and is driven by a belt, usually the V-belt from a pulley on the crankshaft.
If the process of cooling your engine fails that means that the engine coolant is blocked in the cylinder head and cylinder block and was not able to reach the radiator to exchange its heat. If this happened then expect that engine overheating will follow. The bearings and the gasket of your Infiniti water pump should also be taken cared off to avoid it from getting damaged. Take note that a broken bearing or a leaking seal or gasket often fail at the same time. Once your Infiniti water pump is damaged, symptoms like coolant leaks, noisy bearings and damaged or corroded impeller will start to show up.
