Hi Tamsin,

I don't understand the diagnosis. What are the symptoms please? I fear that you might be thinking of scrapping your lovely KV6 unnecessarily. My reasons for asking:
  • Water pumps fail by leakage. But evidence of coolant in that area can also be drainage from the 'V' due to a flattened 'O' ring.
  • If your engine is overheating it won't be the water pump; that's a common uninformed diagnosis.

So what's the story Tamsin? Maybe we will have good news for you.

Simon
