Model Years Affected: 1999, 2000

Average Mileage: 171,790 mi (167,000 mi - 176,580 mi)


The low coolant light may illuminate and/or the engine may overheat as a result of a coolant leak from the water pump. The leaking pump will require replacement and the entire cooling system should be inspected for leaks as it is not uncommon to find multiple leaks on higher mileage vehicles.

Overheating can cause severe engine damage. If the engine begins to overheat it is recommended to stop at the first available location and have your vehicle towed to a repair shop.

    Water pump leak - had to replace all hoses and the water pump - age of the car and miles driven were the main reason it gave out.
