First Line Group (FLG) has announced the introduction of electric water pumps to sit alongside its mechanical water pumps, thermostats, sensors and switches to form a 750 part number-strong programme.
There are two types of electric pump: primary, which replaces the traditional mechanical pump and secondary, which is fitted alongside a mechanical pump and often has several functions.
These functions can include cooling the vehicle after the engine has been shut down, increasing the flow of coolant to certain parts of the engine under extreme conditions and/or boosting the coolant flow to the heater matrix to warm up the heating system as quickly as possible.
Manufacturers of modern electric hybrid vehicles, tend to mix and match their water pump requirements.
The Lexus CT200H, later Toyota Prius and Auris and Yaris hybrids utilise electric pumps, whereas other Lexus hybrids, the earlier (pre-2009) Prius, Vauxhall Ampera and Honda and PSA hybrids favour a mechanical solution.
Irrespective of their drive method, all First Line water pumps are sourced from premium manufacturers with a reputation for quality, which is why the entire water pump range is supported with a 2-year/24,000 mile warranty and so provides workshops with the perfect replacement.
