We Are Hiring


Overheating is a problem that can plague just about any car and if it happens often enough or is left unattended to it can lead to severe damages to your car. One of the biggest tools your car has to fight overheating is the water pump that pushes coolant through the engine block, radiator and hoses to move engine heat away from the system. With the water pump constantly working while your car is on it is subjected to a lot of wear and tear and can require substantial repairs to prevent long-term damages throughout the car. There are normally signs and symptoms of a water pump going bad but the best practice is to make sure your car follows the proper service intervals to receive the correct preventative maintenance.

For European car owners throughout the Anaheim area the experts at Mike’s Foreign Car make maintaining and repairing your vehicle’s water pump as easy as possible. If you suspect that your water pump is failing or needs replacement then our friendly staff will perform a variety of tests to determine if it is an issue with the water pump or something else entirely. While the dealership mechanics may maintain that the entire water pump be replaced no matter what, we look for the most cost-effective option that best suits your budget and your needs. Oftentimes when the water pump is in need of repair it can mean that it is also time to replace the timing belt/timing chain in order to preserve the entire car’s health. Our experts have decades of experience servicing European-made cars like Audi, Porsche and Volkswagen and we are confident in our ability to get the job done right the first time.

Whether simply repairing a leak in the water pump or performing a full replacement we make sure to use dealership quality tools and equipment throughout.
