Water pumps keep failing. V6 - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I'm trying to find out the cause of front-seal leaks on my SAAB's water pump. I've replaced the water pump pretty much yearly. This last pump is leaking at the front seal and was just installed this past August, only 4,000 miles on it.
08/27/2017 142,432 miles, AC/Delco water pump. 252-778
What I discovered this morning is the radiator cap is not holding pressure. Would the lack of a pressurized cooling system cause the shaft seal in the pump to not seat properly, therefore leak? I did buy an new OEM water pump from Europe but haven't installed it yet.
