Gates or Dayco water pump kit?

I have a leak that I believe is coming from the water pump. I replaced it 3 yrs ago at 91K miles and now it's leaking at 112K miles. The replacement was a Gates kit from Rockauto. I never thought it would be this early for another replacement so should I buy Gates kit (again) or try Dayco?
Thanks

Most have run Gates kits, I am running a Continental kit. One caveat no matter which kit you use is to get the OEM MOPAR gasket rather than the one that comes in the kit. Might be interesting if the gasket caused your premature failure.

I went with the Gates and have had no problems with it at all.

I recommended this Gates kit to a friend about a month ago. He installed it with no problems and all is well with his 2002 300M.


Part number is: GATES TCKWP295

Be aware that this kit is for 2002-2004 cars.

There's a different kit due to the Tensioner for 1998-2001 so do your research.

Ron - Isn't it true that as long as you get both the hydraulic tensioner and the tensioner pulley for the same year range, you can use either kit? My advise has always been that as long as you use both from the same year range, get whichever has the metal tensioner pulley.
