Wow! I haven't heard of this before, now. My DCM just turned 78K, and I'm fairly certain it's still got the original pump - I've had the car since 51K.Replace that water pump at 60k miles since we KNOW it may not be good for 80K.
What is the percentage of pump failures up to 80K?
I guess it might be time to look into an electric pump.
Anyone know offhand what the life expectancy is of the Meziere pump (hours)? And, is it a good thing on a daily driver?
