water pump problem?
I brought my Celi last Friday to the dyno to be tuned with my Rotrex. Now the tuner said, the temps on the engine go very quick very high, it seems the water pump doesn't do its job right.
Before I did the SC conversion I had a marten defect, this animal did bite through one of the two main cooling hose and the water run out exactly at this spot. Hence the temps went up very quick and I stopped the car immediately. After we fixed this issue at the garage we run the engine to see if the problem was solved, and we bleeded off several times the cooling circuit because temps raised up again. After a while, after we bleeded off one more time the cooling circuit, temps were fine and stayed at a consistent level. I was driving home, all ok... I did drive around with the car for some weeks and sometimes temps raised again to high. I always did let it cool down, did bleed off the system and filled water to the correct level. Then if I was lucky after a while temps where again fine...
Also we did change to a TRD Thermostat before bringing it to the dyno, just to mention. At the dyno he did bleed off the system many times with out success.
Is this the water pump indeed?
