Hello I have just replaced the leaking water pump on my wife's CTS. After re-installing everything and filling the resevoir with coolant I started the car. It started rough and surged to 2200RPMs or so and back down, but there is a severe scrubbing noise. I am quite scared to start it now and have requested to be off of work tomorrow to fix it. Is this just the noise of a dry water pump or did I possibly ruin this car? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I did break two small vacum lines but repaired them as needed. Thanks for any help.
have the same problem?
