Manchester is a popular cultural centre, with performing arts and live music venues that include the Palace Theatre, Manchester Opera House, the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester Arena and Manchester Academy.
Manchester has provided iconic bands such as The Smiths, Joy Division, The Verve, M People and The 1975, and in the height of the 1980s the ‘Madchester’ scene gave us The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, Inspiral Carpets and James.
Canal Street has been the home for an LGBTQ+ community since 1940, with bars and clubs attracting around 20k visitors each weekend, and the Manchester Pride festival is celebrated every August.

Close on its heels—and in order of popularity—are the Volkswagen Golf, Volkswagen Polo, Mercedes C-Class Saloon and Nissan Qashqai.

Your car’s water pump is responsible for circulating the engine coolant around the cooling system. It is located in the engine bay and is usually powered from the engine drive belt.
Due to the importance of their operation, water pumps are often replaced before they fail. It is recommended that a water pump be replaced between 60k and 90k miles of operation. It is also advisable that the timing belt, idler pulleys, and tensioner be replaced at the same time.
An obviously leaking water pump will fail an MOT. A very slight drip or suspected leak may cause an advisory measure, which given the impact a leaking water pump can have on the engine, it should be checked and replaced straight away.
Our efficient and fully qualified mechanics will inspect the water pump and cooling system, including a possible pressure test to detect any leaks.
Wherever required your water pump will be replaced and you’ll be advised of any other connected or associated problems arising from its malfunction.
You will also be advised of any other affected parts that may need to be replaced for the best operation and health of your vehicle.
Once the faulty water pump has been replaced, our mechanics will test it thoroughly to ensure its correct operation and make any adjustments required for trouble-free performance.
A water pump and its components can wear out over time. This may result in leaking or a reduced pumping capacity. It is imperative that your **water pump **operates correctly, as failure to pump coolant through your engine can cause engine overheating and irreparable damage to your engine.
If there are patches or puddles of fluid on the floor beneath your engine, it could be a leaking water pump.
If you spot fluid leaking around the water pump in the engine bay, then your water pump may be damaged.
If your car doesn’t start, it could be due to** failed water pump **operation.
If the temperature gauge reads higher than normal or your engine is overheating, it could be caused by a malfunctioning water pump.
Any dashboard warning light is an indicator that a sensor has detected an incorrect operation. An engine temperature warning could be related to your water pump.
