Coolant boiling temp increases with psi while it lessens in a vacuum. If the pump is serious enough it can cavitate or cold boil the coolant under extreme suction. http://penray.com/cooling-system-techfacts/cavitation-in-cooling-sytems/
Cavitation adds froth to the coolant which reduces it's ability to remove heat.
