The Motorservice Group announced it added four new water pump modules from Pierburg to its product range. With six total Pierburg products, Motorservice now covers all water pumps for the 1.6-l and 2.0-l petrol turbocharged engines (M270 and M274) from Mercedes-Benz, the company says.
The water pumps operate as and when needed, thus helping to save fuel and comply with applicable exhaust emission standards, Motorservice said.
During the warm-up phase, the water pump module is switched off by a vacuum valve. This enables the engine to be heated more quickly and fuel-saving systems, start-stop system, can be activated promptly. In addition, the water pump module is switched on by the heating and air conditioning system if required, so that the interior of the vehicle is heated up more quickly, among other things, according to Motorservice.
