    so I ran it hard for four hours straight it was spiking well over 250-260 if I let it sit to long.

    I noticed a little coolant under the truck

    It hasn’t leaked in the last week!

    Got a lube oil filter and the jiffy lube guy said I had a water pump leak and should take it to the dealership cause it’s still under warranty!

    I’m also getting a slight chirp!

    I think the chirp is the belt

    And I’m worried my Chevy dealer may want to try and keep my truck and the busy season just hit!

    I guess I’m wondering could it have back flowed coolant out the reserve tank since it hasn’t leaked since?

    Are these setups bad on engine water pumps?

    I know I need to take it to the dealership and let them know it’s something that can’t sit around for two or three days!

    We’re you saying these setups were hard on fuel pumps or engine water pumps????

    Mine burned up a fuel pump but it's a known Chevy issue and GM sent a letter stating they extended the warranty to 10 years so everything was covered.

    Never had a problem with overheating or the water pump.

    We've replaced water pumps on our van powered units but ours are 2005 and 2007 so we have some miles on them. I always figured wear item. ???

    Yeah I'm pretty good at changing that serpentine belt. Like Marty I change out that belt tensioner once a year and a couple load bearing idler pulleys . Watch that mark on the belt tensioner it should be right in the middle mark when it's a new belt. Starts chirping time to look closer at why.

    Fuel pumps. They get hot if the tank isn't full of fuel. It needs that fuel bath to stay cool. I don't know if it's still an issue anymore but I heard it was when the first hit the streets.

    When I got my WM home it started getting a chirp. Mechanic said it was a leak in the water pump hitting the belt. I never saw a leak but did notice I had to add a little coolant. I guess it didn't leak enough to hit the ground.

    I should probably cheack the coolant thinking about it.

    Because there is a 2" long extension on the fan clutch spindle to clear the extra belt, make sure the 4 water pump bolts are nice and tight.

    Beat me to it


    63 year old guy in town was working under his car last fall on his property


    Car fell on him and he died a few hours later


    I have this rule of thumb... if it doesn't need gas, washer fluid , a directional bulb or wiper blades the only tool I'm using is my cell phone to schedule a service appt.

    It's good to understand how things work and how to diagnose little problems before they become big ones. For me, the water pump was a little thing. I don't want my otherwise capable mechanic shop messing with the front end of the truckmount drive system. I know Justin or I will put it back right. This repair didn't require getting under the van.

    Fred is right, getting under a heavy van with jacks or stands can be a great way to get killed.

    I ran it for a week on medium no leaks,

    The Chevy dealer is pressure testing the cooling system no leaks, he say it maybe a faulty cap?

    Zero leaks is a good thing

    So I got it back! Got to first job and check engine light goes on!

    I look and sure enough they left a small hose that plugs into the back of the air filter hanging and didn’t tighten up the clamp on the air filter either!

    Light went off a few jobs later!

    Why are dudes who supposedly fixing stuff such knuckleheads?
