Question about 1998 Plymouth Voyager
Recently had van backed into causing damage to radiator and grill....insurance took care of it including changing water pump but now a year later after warranty up the water pump continues to leak from behind the pulley....could a faulty thermostat cause this leak and if so could it repair this problem without changing out the water pump
First of all, changing thermostat will not fix your water pump leak. Obviously defective pump or install. Be sure to take a closer look, in case it's a loose hose in the area. Leaking from behind pulley, usually calls for new pump. What I would do though, is take it back to original repair shop & question them about any warranty that may apply. Some have 1 yr. some have limited lifetime etc. If you can obtain a copy of work done, the part number on the pump should give you what you need to call (or shop can call) and inquire about that particular part number as far as warranty goes. (I'd make the call myself, ahead of time, so I know.) That way, perhaps the shop who originally installed it may feel some kind of obligation to replace it at a reduced fee, as in labor only. ($27 for new pump) . Be nice, play a little dumb, it may help, and if they want you to pay the whole shot over again, go elsewhere for estimate.
