VW Golf - Leaking Water Pump

Click To Enlarge
One issue we are seeing more regularly these days is leaking water pumps on Volkswagen group diesel engines, mainly the 1.6 TDI.

These engines as part of their scheduled service require the timing belt to be changed at 140,000 miles or when the vehicle reaches 5 years old or for the 2.0 Diesel at 120,000 miles / 4 years old then every 4 or 5 years depending on whether 2.0 or 1.6 respectively.

When changing the timing belt as part of routine servicing VW recommend to also change the water pump at the same time, 2 reasons for this being that by the time the water pump has done 120 or 140,000 miles its bearing will be worn and should it collapse altogether then the timing belt will become loose putting the valve timing out resulting in piston to valve contact and a very expensive repair, now the other reason for changing after 4 or 5 years being that the seals in the water pump will have deteriorated causing it to leak coolant leading to an overheated engine and the possibility of another costly repair.

So if you have a VW, Audi, Seat or Skoda please remember to have the water pump and timing belt changed at the required intervals to avoid the inconvenience of a breakdown and costly repairs. Back To List
