so one of my water pipes cracked because i saw that my aux water pump is not functioning.... so my question is
what would happen if i bridge the pipe
(i.e - remove the aux water pump) ?
i live in SA and our temp is nothing like the UK....
also once the new pipes was put on the car drives like a beeeeeeeech now, stutters and doesn't pick up revs, stutters. checked spark plugs , HT leads are brand new blue thunder performance leads, i noticed that when i toggle the one ( sorry im not sure of the name) switch next to the aux water pump ( big round plug with lots of pins) the car started to drive better,
so could that be my issue?

Re: WTF CAR!!! (CTSR)

the big connector is a barrel connector. yes, this is the most important connection in your engine bay. remove the connector, clean it out with electronics cleaner and put it back on tightly
