    water pump - what is the shelf life?

    HI to all!

    Just wondering what is the actual shelf life of the water pump? (I have 2000 1.6L 16v X16XEL engine. IIRC.

    For timing belt kit I understand that it is recommended to be replaced at 40K or max at 60k. how about for water pump? any ideas?

    cheers!

    Having heard of a few cambelts go ~50,000 miles I would not suggest pushing this until 60,000 unless your model of engine states this via Vauxhall. it was set at 80,000 intervals until they had so many failures around the 50-55,000 mark.

    The water pump comes with the timing belt itself, at least it did for me when I got mine done a while back.

    Would have been at around 77k miles at the time.

    thanks for the info!

    was thinking of extending my water pump. meaning i'll have my timing belt kit changed but retain my water pump and just change it in my next change of timing belt.

    do you think the water pump can last that long? lastly, just wondering if ever you have heard of the brand INDUSTRIE SALERI ITALO.It's made in italy. PRICE is a fraction compared to the original GM.

    I checked the website. They seem to be a big company. Your inputs on these two inquiries pls...
