hahahaha water pump
#1309491 - 08/30/06 08:58 PM

So I was driving today and my temp gauge maxed out.
It took me 2 hours and 4 liters of water for a normal 25 minute drive home.
Got it home ran some tests and the tale tell sign is no heat from the vents!

It took 10 years for mine to die......

Now I pray the plastic impellers didn't explode (if I have them). I will fix it in the morning so I'll let you know.

I replaced mine a couple of months ago just in case.. and interesting enough it looked like it had the good white impeller.. but I changed it anyways to be sure good luck with the swap.. mine turned out to be a killer..

Cheers

Your car is just trying to tell you it wants to stay in Ontario. You should listen to it. Sorry to hear it went though what a PITA huh. Good luck on the swap.

Well kids here it is in all it's glory!
That was a PITA because of the tight area, but atleast it was at the front of the car.
Glad it didn't shatter to much and we found all the pieces.

I am happy I switched to the metal impeller when the supercharger went in a few years ago. (same for my old SE too)
