THIS IS REALLY GONNA MAKE YOU. UNHAPPY (YOU ARE NOT THE FIRST)

SEEMS THAT VW AND OTHER MANUFACTURERS WANT TO MAKE THINGS BREAK, USING MATERIALS NOT SUITED FOR THE JOB

"PLASTIC"----WONDERFUL STUFF IF USED IN THE PROPER PLACES

METAL HAS BEEN A PROVEN MATERIAL IN YEARS GONE BY FOR THIS PART

I'M REFERRING TO THE "IMPELLER" ON THE WATER PUMP

THE IMPELLER IS SORTA THE "PROPELLER-LIKE" THINGEE THAT PUSHES THE COOLANT THRU THE ENGINE

THIS MAY NOT BE YOUR ISSUE---IT IS VERY COMMON NOW-A-DAYS

I TOOK THESE PICS OF 2 DIFFERENT VW PUMPS, FROM 2 DIFFERENT SHOPS, LESS THAN A WEEK APART (I FIGURED THIS WAS ENOUGH PICS) I STILL SEE THIS OFTEN

SPLITTING OR JUST FALLING APART

METAL ONES FAIL TOO.I RARELY SEE THEM DO IT LIKE THE PLASTIC ONES

LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU FIND

1990 vw. Not gonna be a water pump issue. Stuck thermostat, burnt out fan or electrical issue.

By the way. All capital letters means "shouting".
