I'm stuck!! My truck started leaking coolant this weekend, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out where from! I spent hours in a small town trying to find a shop to look at it, but they were all closed. 3 hours and 34liters of water later, I made it back to my shop to find out that it was coming from my water pump. No problem until I got it out (Holy Crap, what a pain in the ass!!) Took the impeller of the housing and... well here is a picture!



I've called all the autoparts stores, and the dealers around here, but nobody seems to make anything! Apparently they are not suposed to wear out! I need help :help

I've got the fab shop nextdoor trying to repair it. It can't hurt, the thing is toast anyways:) Apparently there is the possibility of getting one from GM. It is a direct ship from the US. The guy I talked to however wasn't sure what he was doing. The Parts manager is looking into it for me right now. The down side is it is like 2 weeks away! Has anyone else had this problem, and successfully repaired the damaged one?

The pit actually goes right through th case (you can see the hole). The fab shop did a pretty good job (No Charge:) but he suggested no using it as there are probably more pits that will show their ugly faces soon.

A buddy of mine works for GM and they were able to find one. $120.00 plus shipping direct from the factory. Should be here Friday. Thanks for the tips everyone!
