While there, it is good to remember that these water pumps are good for 200000 miles. If it's the original one, may as well leave it in there - will also save the money on the coolant along

Not taking a chance on the water pump. (Those are Canadian miles you're referring to). I'm changing it with the timing belt.

PRESTONE Green for me.
I have used this for 25 years on all BMWs and Volvos.
When I look inside, it is pristine clean.

Prestone Green is $12 at Target, Walmart. Buy distilled water to mix.
