    A0667E34-F6DC-4FEB-97DE-5FADAED4459B.jpeg Hi
    Please look at the image attached.

    Coolant was leaking from it.
    It’s bolted to the cooling fan with torque bolts and 2 coolant hoses attach from each side.
    My car got hit by a lorry and must of happened from the impact.
    I’ve have bye passed it and need to order a new one.
    What is it’s purpose and do I need it??
    Thanks

    Thanks.
    So just ask for an after run pump ?
    Will order from TPS in the morning.
    Any harm in using car with out it for a couple of days ?

    What does it do ?

    I presume distributes coolant when not running or something like that ?

    Helps cool the turbo after you turn off the ignition...

    Be ok for a couple of days... not unusual for them to fail and leak

    Just a bit of advice please. I have whining noise which I thought was the drive belt tensioner.
    I have removed the after run pump but it’s still connected electronically.
    I parked the car today and heard the whine when I walked away from the car and also when I went to get in before I turned the key.
    Will this be the after run pump trying to work.
    I have the water pump and will do it in the morning.
    Is this the likely cause for the whining?

    Thanks again

    More than likely the pump... they do make odd noises when in the throws of dying and/or running dry
