JTS Water Pump Failure...
as some of you may know i've been sorting out my car the last few weeks...
got it back from the menders today. my specialist, a guy, in Norwich did a fantastic job of getting my car sorted for me. new belts, waterpump, im now running selenia racing oil, new plugs, filters, and every single belt pulley was changed... variator tensioners etc...Runs like a Dream!!!
however. he showed me my waterpump and it was basically toast a few more miles would have killed it he reckons. looking at it, it would seem the bearing inside had exploded taking out the rest of the pump mechanism. and it was rusty as hell. could have been when the garage i got it from JETWASHED!!!! my engine bay.:bash:
moral of the story even if you have a JTS or a TS dont neglect your lovely water pump
and dont jet wash an engine either.:bite:
