Hyundai Creta: Cooling System / Water pump

Components and components location

Components

1. Gasket
2. Water pump
3. Water pump pulley

Repair procedures

Removal
1.
Drain the coolant.
(Refer to Cooling System - "Coolant")
2.
Remove the drive belt.
(Refer to Timing System - "Drive Belt")
3.
Remove the water pump pulley (A).

4.
Remove the water pump(A).

Inspection
1.
Check each part for cracks, damage or wear, and replace the coolant pump assembly if necessary.
2.
Check the bearing for damage, abnormal noise and sluggish rotation, and replace the coolant pump assembly if necessary.
3.
Check for coolant leakage. If coolant leaks from hole, the seal is defective. Replace the coolant pump assembly and gasket.
  
A small amount of “weeping” from the bleed hole is normal.
Installation
1.
Install the water pump (A) and a new gasket with the bolts.
Tighten the bolts with the order blow.
Tightening torque :
9.8 ~ 11.8 N.m (1.0 ~ 1.2 kgf.m, 7.2 ~ 8.7 lb-ft)

2.
Install the water pump pulley (A) with the four bolts.
Tightening torque :
9.8 ~ 11.8 N.m (1.0 ~ 1.2 kgf.m, 7.2 ~ 8.7 lb-ft)

  
Tighten the bolts diagonally.
3.
Install the drive belt.
(Refer to Timing System - "Drive Belt")
4.
Fill with engine coolant.
(Refer to Cooling System - "Coolant")
5.
Start engine and check for leaks.
6.
Recheck engine coolant level.

Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting
Symptoms
Possible Causes
Remedy
Coolant leakage
From the bleed hole of the water pump
Visually check
Check leaks after about ten-minute warming up.
If coolant still leaks, replace a water pump.
If leakage stops, reuse the water pump (Do not replace the pump with a new one).
From gaskets or bolts
Check the tightening of the water pump mounting bolts.
Retighten the mounting bolts.
Check damage of gaskets or inflow of dust.
Replace the gasket and clean dust off.
From outer surface of water pump
Check the material or any cracks of the water pump.
Poor material. If any crack found, replace the water pump.
Noise
From bearings
From mechanical seals
Impeller interference
Inspection with a stethoscope
After starting the engine, check noise with a stethoscope.
If there is no noise, reuse the water pump(do not replace it).
If there is any noise from the water pump, remove the drive belt and recheck.
Inspection after removing a drive belt
After removing a water pump and a drive belt, check noise again.
If there is noise, reuse the water pump. Check other drive line parts.
If there is no noise, replace the water pump with a new one.
Inspection after removing a water pump
After removing a water pump and a drive belt, check noise again.
If there is any interference between them, replace the water pump with a new one.
Overheating
Damaged impeller
Loosened impeller
Loosened impeller
Corrosion of the impeller wing
Check engine coolant.
Poor coolant quality / Maintenance check
Impeller seperation from the shaft
Replace the water pump.
