I woke up this morning walked out to my car to check if my spark plug wires were still good and guess what I noticed. I hope this is just some morning condensation lol...
Yup! I have had good luck with the brand new lifetime warrenty pumps from Autozone. Do the Opti at the same time. Hell You are 3/4 the way to the opti.If your waterpump really is leaking, you can replace it when you replace the opti in your previous post, since you'll be pulling it off anyway. A waterpump R&R isn't the hardest job on these cars. There are plenty of posts and write-ups around to give you a lot of advice.
No need to get a 160F Tstat unless you're going to reprogram the PCM to lower the fan turn-on temperatures.You are more than likely gonna have to order both items. You will also need to order a 160 degree hypertech stat too. You can order the MSD cap and rotor from O'rily autoparts. O'riley also has a complete gasket/seal set for the timing chain cover, I'd get that too.
i just got done pulling my water pump just now...it aint hard by no means, just some very tedious work. this is my first time going deep into a LT motor and its a lot of connectors and vacuum lines. just MARK EVERYTHING.Can someone give me the low down on changing a waterpump and if it matters if i get a cheap one from autozone?
