In May 2012, after an overheating episode, my trustworthy (I think?) Honda mechanic replaced a leaky water pump and the timing belt. Five months later, it overheated again and the water pump had to be replaced again--this time at the mechanic's expense. He also installed a new radiator. Now, just a little more than a year later (Jan. 2014), my car is again overheating and leaking coolant, and the water pump appears to be the culprit, AGAIN. My Honda mechanic is exasperated and wants to give up on it/me! They were both quality OEM water pumps. Any clues on why my car would be eating water pumps--just bad luck or is something going on to cause the frequent failures?
have the same problem?
