Who drives the water pump off the the cam belt?
The missus's beetle started to misfire the other day. No other codes, just misfire on cylinder 3 and 4.
Did some digging around the engine couldn't see anything obvious but notice a bit of water coming out of the bottom of timing case, set the cam timing markers up and the crank marks are out. Whip the covers off and low and behold, the water pump is rolling around on an oval! The belt was slack and jump a tooth or two!
Lucky I caught it! If that had of failed completely it would of been new engine time due to how it's driven off the cam belt.
This is my updated sig... due to rebuilding the V8, its all I can afford!
Now Supercharged... oh my!
