If your car has started running rough and even having trouble running after sitting for more than a minute, you may wonder if there could be a problem with its coolant system. If so, look for the following warning signs that your car's water pump is starting to go bad.
1. High Engine Temperature Readings after Idling Only for a Few Minutes
One of the first warning signs that your water pump is failing can be found by looking at your dashboard after idling for a few minutes while either in your driveway or at a traffic stop.
When the lights of your vehicle turn on or when your car begins to exhibit some different than normal issues, you should get it to the repair shop as soon as possible. Though you may not have a lot of time to get things together before you go to the repair shop, you will be able to speak with the proper people and get the necessary paperwork after your vehicle is done being serviced.
