Water Pump and Engine Cooling Experts

Free Estimates | Foreign and Domestic Vehicle Services | Competitive Prices

Water Pump Repair Work Done Right


A water pump is a key component of an engine's cooling system. It pushes the coolant throughout the engine to maintain a proper temperature. If the water pump is damaged, the water will no longer flow properly, and the car will overheat.
Whether your water pump is leaking, the thermostat needs replacement, or your radiator needs repair, look no further. At Top Care Auto Center, we'll ensure that your engine cooling system is in the best shape. Be sure to visit our special offers page to benefit from our latest offers.

Common Signs of a Damaged Water Pump

Coolant leaks at the front-center of the engine or near the timing belt due to damaged gaskets and seals
Water pump pulley is loose and making whining sounds
Overheating engine or a sudden change in the temperature gauge
Steam coming from the radiator
If you notice any of these signs, contact Top Care Auto Center, and we will provide you a FREE estimate on any of our water pump repairs or services.

Auto Transmission Repairs

Let Us Handle Your Transmission Needs

Top Care Auto Center takes pride in offering the residents of San Diego the best in transmission repairs. Our auto repair shop offers everything from complex mechanical solutions to basic maintenance services.
Be sure to visit our special offers page to see our latest coupons.

The Importance of a Quality Transmission

The transmission is the link between the engine and the wheels of your vehicle. Whether you drive a manual, automatic, or semi-automatic vehicle, the transmission plays a crucial role in the performance and reliability of your vehicle.
It keeps your vehicle's engine output matched with speed and load conditions. Because engines operate at high rotational speeds, the transmission reduces engine output speed and transmits torque through the differential, driveshaft, and wheels. As engine speed varies, the transmission switches between the gears that influence the amount of torque applied to the wheels.
Transmission fluid performs a variety of duties depending on the type of transmission. Transmission fluid acts as a cooling agent and protects the transmission by lubricating the internal gears and preventing corrosion and rust. In a manual transmission, clutches and gear shifts provide pressure and force — like engagement and disengagement — while in an automatic transmission, transmission fluid provides these same operational functions of force and pressure.

Brake Repair Services

Leave the Brake Servicing to Our Experts

Don’t put yourself at risk with faulty brakes. The technicians of Top Care Auto Center have all received advanced certification in brake repair and will have your car's braking systems working like new.
Be sure to visit our special offers page to see our latest coupons.

Why Brakes Are So Vital for Your Safety

A fully functioning brake system is crucial to your safety, the safety of your passengers, and the safety of other drivers on the road. Your vehicle’s brake system involves highly engineered parts and precise movements that stop your vehicle by converting kinetic energy into thermal energy.
When you press down on the brake pedal, the master cylinder pressurizes a system of hydraulic brake lines leading to each of the vehicle’s wheels. Here, brake pads or shoes press against a disc or drum and create the necessary friction needed to slow the vehicle to a complete stop.
Over time, this friction and heat have the potential to wear down the brake shoes, brake pads, calipers, brake rotors, and other braking components. While the components comprising each brake system may vary, the warning signs for impending brake repairs are the same.
