water was leaking out of a "weeping" hole on the water pump. This part was not very expensive. The part was equally not that difficult to replace, 9 bolts- and time. local santee shop quotes $365 for parts and labor.
my friend, the right tools, and anafternoon. good times......good luck
intake elbow keeps busting on engine at least once a year sometimes more. This needs to be recalled and made into a metal part or something that can withstand the constant heat and cooling depending on the temperatures outside.
Having probl with car overheating and pump had been replaced . Head gaskets and thermostat also ! Running hot and water doesn't se to be circulating from radiator to thermostat . Jose has lot of pressure on it when engine is at thermostat open temp . The same problem as more than half of the reports .. Factory engine flaw and needs to be addressed ! $3000.00 in repair costs and climbing !!
Just discovered water pump leaking and very loose, causing a loud squealing and grinding sound. Attempting to fix myself, but with having to buy jack stands and flush the coolant as well is extremely inconvenient, as I am in a major time crunch to fix it in less than 12 hours and I didn't detect signs of the problem before the loud squealing/grinding that started today. If the belt slips, the engine could seize and I can't take the risk. Is there a recall for this??
dash temp gage went red. made it home next day. coolant was empty. refilled rad. and overflow tank. Started up , when at temp and reved coolant was blowing out pump. will either send it to shop or let it blow up!!!! THANKS GM for CHINA PART
