Water Pump (2011)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've had a browse through and a search first with no luck, so apologies if going over old ground.

I have a company TR 2.0D 61plate (not the very latest shape), Very briefly the water pump has been replaced twice now at servicing for leaking, apparently a common problem. Any comments?

ALL water pumps from all manufacturers leak.

The technology on them uses the coolant as a lubricant for the seal.

There are actually drain holes for the coolant that comes out built into the pump

Good chance the dealer is changing the pumps at best because they don't realise or at worst because it's easy money for them

If the coolant level isn't dropping in level then the pump does not need changing

Problem is the neon pink coolant attracts a lot of attention
