water pump froze
water pump on a car i have froze, and stripped the cam belt, will the pump be ok now its thawed out or will it be knackered ??
I would probably replace it at around 24 or 34 quid (depending on which type) from Vauxhall.
Howeve, I suspect if your cambelt was stripped you may have had piston head to valve contact and therefore a nasty bill in front of you.
ye. all 16 were bent
your probably right, is there anyway to test the pump??
would be good if I didnt have to pay MORE money
Normally you have no notice if the pump's going except more bent stuff (unless it happens to squeal like a pig).
You have to ask yourself, do I want to put the pump back in and spend out all that again?
I have a pump here that's done 100K so I don't know if I'd trust it but you can have it for postage and cost or pick it up if you like.
