    Exclamation Attn Z20LET owners...(waterpumps)...

    Seeing as my GSi is currently in Vauxhall (has been so far for 3 days!!), with water pump problems, I was wondering how many other people have had the same problem/fault with the same engine, if it was done under warranty and if you encountered any other probs regarding the pump with vaux? Mine is being done under warranty and luckily I have a nice 55 Astra SXi loan car! But have others been so lucky?

    Mine!
    Went in to have the alternator looked at on the last day of warranty (Battery went flat so they offered to check it out!)
    Picked it up next day to be told the alternator was fine but the water pump was a bit noisey so they replaced it + cam belt all under warranty!

    In my service history it shows that the water pump was replaced with the cam belt at 35,000 miles.

    got mine replaced when my cambelt was changed, just to be on the safe side, was told by a vaux mechanic that they are crap

    Interesting reading so far. All seem to be around the 20-30k mark!

    Had to have mine replaced at 38,000 miles. The bloke who did it (My next door neighbour who happens to own his own garage and MOT testing station) fixed it and he said he'd never seen one as bad as mine that the cambelt hadn't jumped off the pulley. He kept it and there must have been at least 10 degrees of play in the shaft.

    It didn't seem to be losing any coolant though, which I thought was a bit strange!
