Timing belt driven water pumpThe technicians at Hendersonville Muffler and Brakes are aware that Hendersonville, Tennessee has temperatures that range from less than 0° to more than 110°. They also realize that with this wide range of temperatures we must keep our customers cooling systems in very good condition for the varying temperatures here in Hendersonville, Tennessee. A small failure in the cooling system can create a very large repair job for the engine. Cooling systems that don’t work correctly can also cause the heating system of the car not to work correctly as well . In the winter time with the low temperatures that we have here in Sumner County, Tennessee customers notice problems with their heaters and heating systems VERY quickly.

Automobile engines are internal cumbustion engines. This means that the inside of the cylinders normally operate at temperatures of about 1200°. Though this heat is mostly dispursed out of the exhaust valves and through the exhaust system the cooling system is absolutely critical to keeping the engine from getting destroyed. To move the engine coolant through the cylnder block and cylinder heads devices called water pumps are used. The water pump spins at approximately half the engine speed in most engines and forces the coolant to travel through the engine, past a coolant thermostat, and through the radiator where a radiator fan cools the engine coolant temperature back down to approximately 195°. Though most water pumps are driven by the serpentine belt many are driven by the timing belt such as the one shown above but many are driven by the timing chain such as the one on the left here.Timing chain driven water pump
