  1. Joe, I will get 4 of the rollers here at my place for you.
  2. The new impeller is stamped steel. I don’t really know if it is any better but it did have a certified sticker on the pump.... so that made me feel better.🤣 I am not entirely sure where the parts came from for the last timing belt. Mostly I was buying parts from IDparts but their shipping takes way to long. Could be I bought that kit off Ebay. I figured it was OK because it wasn’t a plastic impeller (I checked) and it was a Continental belt. Oh well.
  3. I picked up everything to do the timing belt again, from Cascade German. The new water pump has a metal impeller. This is the timing belt installed. This is where I stopped tonight. I need to pull the intake and exhaust manifolds tomorrow so I can fix a boost leak. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. It saves even more fuel because you get to walk instead.

  6. Carl, you are welcome to mine anytime... if it isn’t too far to travel.🤣
  7. Thanks for the reply Guys. The reason I am leaning toward the water pump is that even when over heating the bottom radiator hose is cold to the touch but the upper is hot/warm. I could see air being caught in the heater core and that was my first suspicion. I just can't see the radiator being air locked. That doesn't mean it isn't though. Robert, I am not sure of the fittings you are describing but I did pull the vent line from the top of the EGR cooler and I was getting a small trickle of water out of it with the engine running. I chalked it up to thermal expansion. It certainly wasn't a flow. But it did tell me there is water in the EGR cooler and since the heater core is next inline I figured it had to have something in it. As far as I can tell water just isn't moving. I need to replace the intake and exhaust manifold gaskets anyhow (because I made a very stupid mistake I don't want to talk about). The intake gasket is leaking. I should just bite the bullet and pull the water pump to see for sure. I am going to throw a small but spirited temper tantrum if that pump let go....
  8. Frank is my Daughter’s 2003 Jetta wagon. I have no idea why his name is Frank, I’ve just been told that is what it is. I’m starting to think Frank is an A-hole. I have been working on this car pretty much nonstop since she got it. Long story short, I can’t stop it from overheating. Also there is no hot water getting to the heater core. I have felt the hoses and know there isn’t any flow. I was hoping it was thermostat. Installed a new one and no dice. Still overheating and no water flow. I’m thinking it is something haywire with the water pump. Makes me insane because I changed it with a new one not long ago. I looking for any other ideas if you guys have them. If not, I will dive in and pull the pump....again.🙄
