Re: Water pump ****ed up

Just happened to me. One month after oil change and tune up engine started to overheat. Checked coolant, gone. Opened up and looked under engine, had coolant all over underside. Turns out WaterPump was leaking and had to be replaced. No idea why or how but lucky to have it fixed before I broke down somewhere.

2013 Hemi and my water pump went out too, somewhere around 40,000 miles. The engine was making a very slight, but odd noise and that's what it turned out to be. Nothing odd other than the noise, I'm sure had I waited other issues would have shown up.

So they just keep putting the same defective version back in without revising it. Any variations on the part number revisions on you reciept. AB to AC or anything like that?

Re: Water pump ****ed up

54k on my SRT basically same water pump as the 5.7

was replaced under 5 yr 100k powertrain.

Btw the PUMP alone is like $300+ add more if you want to put a new Coolant temp sensor new pulleys etc.

Re: Water pump ****ed up

Ours went bad this month at 38k. A quick fix by the dealer under warranty, and then a return trip so they could finish plugging in the cooling fan >

Re: Water pump ****ed up

I just took my '14 5.7, about to turn over 3 years, just under 25K miles in for its oil change.

They found a leak, and kept the truck an extra day to swap out the water pump and thermostat, all warranty work.

I never noticed anything, never saw anything leaking (though it's hard to tell with the air conditioning).

So lucky me I guess, but I was curious if this was a known issue.
