Bought the car 4/4/2012 ran great for several weeks. Drove it 2 times a week one 31 miles on the beltway and the other on the wekend doing errands. Then one day it was rough idle very low performance not the car I purchased a few weeks ago. Dealer garage said I needed a tune up and dist. cap for $895 and total cost $2000. Found a nd a local vette garage and felt better taking the car there for a $500 savings. Then the call replace the water pump! After much research previously I agree but why is there always one more item to repair or replace when you take the race car to the shop? By the way this is my 4th one.

leaking water pump replaced under extended GMPP warranty.
Water pump replaced. Mechanic noted leak. Replaced pump with coolant $410.00
My 92 vette temperature stays right at 210, 215 most of the time while driving. I've replaced thermostate, flushed now what? I just had a new tranny put in my car.
The car developed a coolant leak, the temperature rose over 210 degrees while in heavy traffic. I had the water pump gasket replaced. So far no problem at 35000 miles.
