2nd Gen 3.7 waterpumps - longevity?
- cross posted to 6Crew -
I've been searching for info on waterpump problems, longevity...any general issues I should be aware of. Info seems to be pretty scarce. My 6 has 104k miles. Other cars I've owned were timing belt engines. I've always been one to take preventative measures and replace timing belt and water pumps to avoid problems.
Now, I'm fully aware the 3.7 has a timing chain. However, after doing some reasearch and digging, the water pump on this 3.7 is buried in the engine and can be a very expensive replacement or cause serious engine damage if one fails.
Is the fact that I only find scarce info on waterpump failures supposed to be reassuring? Did Mazda (Ford) intend for the waterpump to be a lifetime component?
