Which water pump should I buy?
First, I would like to thank all the members of DodgeIntrepid.net for being a great reference for me over the last couple years! I decided to join because I have a few questions myself and figured this would be the perfect place to post.
This summer I have decided to do the timing chain (and water pump) on my 2000 2.7. Also, I have noticed unexplained coolant loss, but the oil does not seem milky yet. I won't be driving it, and will pull it in the garage this week for the work. While reading up on how poor the design of the original pump is, I want to make sure I buy the right water pump for this job. I will most likely be shopping at AA (since the coupons are a pretty good deal) so I am curious to see if they have a sufficient water pump. Besides replacing the timing chain and water pump, I will be also replacing the primary chain tensioner. Anything else I should replace while in there?
