Pump I rebuilt is installed, no noise like POS reman., AND it DOES NOT leak!
So once again if you want things to go right, do it yourself, because the crap they peddle as re-manufactured is pretty much crap.
I should have just rebuilt the damn thing myself instead of trying to save time with a re-man?
Tonight I'll pay a visit to AZ to get my $56.99(pump) and $33.00(core) money back.
What a stellar waste of time, and money that crap was.
So annoyed, probably could have been driving the car long ago had I not replaced the pump with this junk.
The Atsco (aka Duralast) was noisy, leaked, and always had air bubbles in fluid no matter how much I tried to bleed the system.
It appears that the pump was actually leaking from the rear cap that is held on by a large snap ring.
Thought it was the removable fitting on rear, that was rusty/nasty when I removed it, but it was not.
No matter that fitting should have been spotless, and the fact that it had rust on it, really pisses me off.
I'd bet $ all that got replaced was the front seal, and then it got painted. Some lazy ass douche on an assembly line NOT doing their damn job.
