In Reply to: How do you know if your water pump is going bad? posted by Phillip on October 08, 2000 at 18:08:02:

This has been a long battle. My car has been losing water real slow for the last two monthes. So far I have: Replaced temp sensors (blue one), and drained and flushed system putting all new fluids in and I replaced the res. cap. Then yesterday my coolant warning light came on so I pulled into a gas station and it was a little bit low. Till today there has not been evidence of water leakage under the car except for a few drips from overflow tube. Then today I looked under the car and there was a 10 to 12 inch puddle, also there was some antifreeze on alt. brackets. Until I saw this I was thinking that my head gasket was starting to go but mabye not. Any insight? TIA Phillip

when your heater core blows up from the new pressure in the system, you know your old water pump was weak. oh and don't worry, since the mechanic that replaced the water pump didn't actually work on the heater core, it's not his fault for not doing a pressure check.

make sure this doesn't happen to you
88M3 (new heater core, carpet (pre heater core carpet was ruined) and waterpump) yeah I got raped by the mechanic, I'll admit it
