Troopy Water Pump....How Long will it Last once the noises start?
I have mistaken the noise that is similar to the noise on the youtube video below....it was actually the idler pulley that seized up. Just letting everyone know this so they don't make the same mistake. Instead of a costly tow truck to the dealers and a few hours of them thinking it was the water pump, I could have just taken off the A/C belt, and kept driving.
My 94 Troopy has just developed what I think is a water pump issue.
I'm guessing the bearing is about to go as it sounds like this: Water pump noise - YouTube
Does anyone know how long you can drive it before it fails completely? I'm overseas and am wondering if I can drive it 500-1000-3000km before getting it repaired?
Any info is appreciated!
