Coolant drip

Anyone had any water pump failures on mk3 1.3 mjet doblo's. There is a drip coming from that area on mine.

Re: Coolant drip

Any water pump is liable to fail, but the biggest killer is straight water!

Coolant has lubricating properties, so if in the past some owner has burst a hose (or more likely a radiator on these...) they may have run it for a while with no or insufficient amount of coolant and the bearing will run too hot.

If this happens, the seal goes and the pump starts leaking

Re: Coolant drip

It's never had the coolant run low and it's still pink i've had it for the last 2.5 years. It may not be coming from the water pump although that drip certainly points in that direction. I have only noticed it since had the cover off due Sh!tfit chewing up the sump plug which they can't remove. New one on order so they had better find a way of removing it. Last time I go to them for anything, they lost the cover from my brothers Doblo. (200) for new 1. They paid!

Tell them to run the engine prior to attempting to remove the plug. Might help to get some heat into the sump plug
Thanks jazz452 thanked for this post

Re: Coolant drip

Yes ignore everthing I wrote, I removed wrong screw holding oil filter cover on. This allows water to leak from the oil cooler. So all is well, dont like to leave incomplete thread. Got a new sump plug fitted ,(opel corsa T45) should anyone else need one for mk3 doblo.
