2005 S60 2.5T AWD: Anaerobics for waterpump seal too?

Post by MarcM » Tue Jan 19, 2016 7:02 pm

Going to be doing my water pump. Had a chance during my 5 flush weekend and had an "screw it" moment. Even the Volvo guy at a stealership had no idea regarding my overheating, yet no heat issue. All points to a bad WP (possible impeller is rotating on shaft). Possible bad flow to the heater core.
Aaaaaanyway... I know that anaerobic sealers have to be used on the valve cover. I despise RTV. Permatex Anaerobic Flange Sealer says it can be used on waterpumps. Has anyone used this on their waterpump? What does Volvo use? (any dealer mechs I haven't insulted with "stealership" term?)

I'm looking at the Permatex Prep/Activator to clean the area and the Anaerobic Flange Sealant.

Sidenote: I went to Lovering Volvo in Concord, NH and had to get an appt to read the SRS/Airbag Service Urgent code. Cancelled. Decided I was NOT spending $115 (their base / 1st hr rate) to say "Yes, it was just the biyearly test requirement" for a 15-30 min "look-see".

When you buy Aisin WP, it comes with the gasket.
