Re: Water Pump Advice
i've clocked about 89,000 miles. 3rd belt change on its way in. the water pump has never been changed, I understand it should be changed, regardless. One easy way to check if your water pump is functioning? pop the hood and see the lovely blue or red or whatever colour your coolant is, pumping vigourously into your reservior. dont do it unless you're doing your timing belt. change your cam variator as well. one time labour charge here. i reckon all belts an tensioners should be changed once and for all. its like resetting the clock, you'll have a tougher time keeping track of what and when.
if you feel temperature is a problem, check stuff like the cars thermostat, fan and radiator first.
1/5/94 6.40pm: Dr Maria Theresa Fiandri, pronounced Ayrton Senna dead. At the track, in the shattered remains of Senna's car, they discovered a furled Austrian flag Senna had intended to dedicate his 42nd grand prix victory to Ratzenberger's memory.
