Water Pump Failure

Recommended Posts

Well, my car turned 30K miles on Friday and as a present :angry: it "gave" me a bad water pump today. Everything was fine on it when I used it on Friday night, but yesterday afternoon, while running a short errand, I noticed an odd sound (as if two metal pieces were slightly rubbing together). After taking it to the dealership, I was confirmed that in fact its a bad water pump. Not too many posts on this subject and I have read that it may take two hours to replace, or up to six hours?! :o Could someone confirm how many hours does this procedure actually take? Loren: any write ups or instructions that you could share? :huh:

Thanks Loren. I found the procedure on p-car after I posted. Looks to be a couple of hours, not 6 as I read elsewhere.

I had mine changed in April, it took almost one day because the turbine inside the waterpump was damaged (pieces of the plastic turbine had fallen of) so the complete system had to be opened and flushed.

But I guess that in normal conditions it should be 3-4 hours.
