Husband noticed something leaking. GMC dealership verified leak from water pump. Cost $303 for parts; $153 for labor
I take by 2004 Yukon SLT V8-5.3L with 125,000 miles in for a brake check and shocks. The national franchise repair shops states, the brakes are okay, the shocks are not leaking and appear okay, however, the water pump is leaking. I had not notice any fluid under the SUV or change in temperture or noise under the hood.....I drive the SUV and park the car in the driveway and 3 hours later I notice some fluid had leaked from the engine compartment and marked the cement.... did I get lucky with my timing on the check-up or should I look for a second opinion.
