...of a failed waterpump

(old pic...wheels are a little dirty...oops lol)
Oh well, at least the car only has 42,8XX miles on it, so it's all covered. Definitely not a fun feeling driving down the highway at 60mph and suddenly seeing you're temp gauge pegged at 260 degrees and your coolant light flashing at you though. Oh, and that great MFI display of STOP, check coolant! hehe I http://****************.com/smile/emlove.gif plastic waterpump impellers! Car's being fixed while I type this, so it's all good. Had 'em put the RC's back on too while it's there...it had better not snow haha

Re: (Code3VW)

Agreed!
Problems come in 3's though...I had door latch issues a couple weeks back, and now my waterpump...what could possibly be next? I hope this is an exception and there isnt anymore to go wrong lol

Eh, I just lost my 4th coilpack.

1st at 52k miles
2nd at 57k miles
3rd at 57.5k miles
4th at 58.5k miles
These were all almost on the DOT of the mileage.
