Water Pump

The cooling system in an engine has five components: the radiator, the radiator cap, the hoses, the thermostat and the water pump. The water pump  is literally the heart of the system. Just as your own heart keeps your blood circulating through your body, the water pump keeps coolant circulating through your engine. The water pump is driven by a belt, chain or gear and only operates while the engine is running. It has a limited life span and sooner or later will have to be replaced. You can check your owner's manual to find out how long your water pump should last. Some can fail at only 40,000 miles, or 65,000 kilometers, but almost all of them fail by 100,000 miles, or 160,000 kilometers. Water pumps don't gradually wear out; they fail. In other words, they're either working or they're not. A failed water pump has to be replaced. Water pumps can fail in two ways: they can spring a leak or their bearings fail. Leaks can come from a cra ... read more

Coolant Replacement at Clark's Professional Car Care in Pascagoula

Your cooling system's job is to keep your vehicle engine cool while driving around Pascagoula, Pascagoula and Pascagoula. Coolant (also called antifreeze) mixed with water flows through your engine and absorbs heat. The mixture then flows out to the radiator where it's cooled by air flowing over the radiator. From there the cooled mix circulates back through the engine to absorb more heat. Coolant, or antifreeze, is specially formulated to keep your vehicle engine safe in a wide range of environmental and operating temperatures in MS. Without coolant, the metal engine parts would expand so much that the engine would seize up and stop running. Many parts could be broken or warp so badly they would have to be replaced. It could even be so bad that the whole engine is ruined and has to be replaced. Also, if it's freezing outside in Pascagoula, the water ... read more

Air Conditioning

Let's talk about air conditioning service and repair issues for the Pascagoula, MS area. Most of us in Pascagoula don't give our air conditioning a second thought as long as it's making cold air. But it's a complex and expensive system that we should think about before it starts blowing hot air. The refrigerant in the air conditioner contains a special oil that lubricates and cools the A/C parts. When enough refrigerant leaks out, your air conditioner still makes cold air, but the parts don't have enough oil to protect them and they wear out faster than they should. So it's important to service the air conditioner as recommended by your Pascagoula, MS service center. Replacing old refrigerant has another benefit: refrigerant tends to gather moisture and become corrosive. That causes leaks in the system which can be expensive to repair. Fresh refrigerant protects the air conditioning components and keeps the syst ... read more
