    If it was my car, i'd bite the bullet and get it done (with the water pump) anyway.

    If it's been done, it won't matter if it's done again, but you'll know.

    If it hasn't and you choose not to spend the £250ish, you could be looking at a bill 4 times the size for a new engine/fitting etc.
