Water pump
« on: January 11, 2019, 05:28:29 pm »
Im new here.
So I have a 2015 golf sportwagen TDI 6-speed 107,600
Water pump seized around 65000 and my mech warned me of interference motor and that it was a good move that I towed to the shop as it looked as the pump jumped a tooth on the belt.
Well fast forward and I now have a new motor because at highway speed the week before Christmas I lost power and blew the motor.
Never had a chance.
Any thoughts?
Not really sure what cause the failure.

Did they just replace the pump and check the timing?  Or did they replace the belt as well.  Jumping a tooth shouldn't be a big deal on a worn, 65000 belt, but it may have nicked it somewhat and it just let go under a constant load.

It was time for a new belt at 120 K was it not?  Or is the replacement interval less than that?

No they did replace the belt also.
Im skeptical about the water pump from the factory and was wondering if anyone had similar issue(s)
