Waterpump Replacement

Recommended Posts

So I have about 59k miles on my car therefore knew it was about time for a water pump replacement. Taking a road trip yesterday to mom's I hear a noise that sounded like a fan belt slipping. Keeping a watchful eye on the temp gauge (it barely rose at all) I continued on, but kept periodically hearing the noise. Pulled off on an exit with a large gas station and parking lot knowing I had trouble. As soon as I get stopped on the exit ramp, I see steam coming up. Long story short, waterpump is shot, get a tow home placing a call to the stealership while riding and purchase a new pump, then arrange for a friend to pick it up as the parts dept is closed on Saturday.

So my day today has been replacing the waterpump. I get the old one off and think I have another problem......the impaler is shredded, and there are pieces MISSING!!!

So my question is, do I now tow it to the dealer and let them extract more blood, or is there a way I can flush out or locate those missing pieces?

Attached photo shows what is left of the impaler.post-34016-029322800 1276974824_thumb.jp

Just have any good shop back flush plastic pieces out and then flush and refill the whole system.

Before or after installing the new water pump?

Back flush before the new pump - flush and refill after the new pump.

Thanks Loren!!!
