My plan is to replace the thermostat at the same time and also the ac belt which is starting to look a bit old and dry. The main serpentine belt looks good and I believe it is newer, but if I can't confirm that from my records, I'll replace it too while I'm at it.
Our Suburban has the two electric fans mounted right behind the radiator, so it has a good amount of room between the fans and the water pump.
I would so appreciate hearing from any of the pros here about any tips, things to watch out for, etc. Oh, one thing I am curious about: should I just go with the gaskets supplied with the new (not remanufactured) water pump or are there any recommendations to use the gaskets plus a thin line of rtv on both sides?
Thanks very much.
have the same problem?
