Two weeks to get a pump? Seems odd; but anyway; I would really be careful that the pump doesn't go into complete failure and your engine gets into a reduced power mode because of the lack of coolant

Re: Puddle of coolant on the garage floor today!

It's probably because of the fact that it's not leaking all the time and when it does it's really not enough to make a dent in the tank, I watch it every day, so really not an emergency.....yet. I think they could of got the pump right away if it were puking antifreeze all over the place. Maybe they have a few bigger jobs to get out of the way first. We'll see and I'll keep my eye on it.

Well I had to call the dealer today to see if I could get my OUTLOOK in ASAP because the pump finally went, coolant everywhere on the drive, splashed under the car . So it's parked untill Monday when I take it in. I hope the new pump is an improved model

It's probably better it failed now instead of later; although I thought it would have lasted longer

I'm only at 32K. Looks like a real treat to work on too. I wonder if I'll get a whole cooling system flush while their at it?

I would think they would remove the right wheel and go through the wheel well; I would expect them to do an entire system flush and fill

Re: Puddle of coolant on the garage floor today!

Dear 6Sixathome,

I have read through the thread about your water pump on your Outlook. I am glad that the dealership was able to fit you in before August about this.

If there is a bright spot about this, it is that it happened at home, right?

I hope all goes well with the repair and that they provide you with a loaner vehicle as to not to inconvenience you too much.

Let me know how things go and if you need further assistance with this.

Sincerely,
Michelle, GM Customer Service
