Antifreeze / coolant leak - water pump going after only 15k?
The title says it all. Found a small puddle in the garage under my GT (18 months in service, 15,100 miles) took it in and dealer (Chevy dealer BTW) says water pump is leaking.
I think I have changed maybe one water pump in all the cars I have owned in 26 years and I am somewhat surprised that this happened, especially so soon.
Anyone else with similar experience? (I searched the forum and only found two guys with radiator leaks).
Also, any thoughts on going with Chevy dealer for service?
My reasons were lack of acceptable Pontiac dealers locally and thought that Chevy dealers would have experience with L76 given that it is used in some of their SUVs and trucks.
