I had two in two in a row but car did eventually of head gasket failure
It was fine for the first week or so with the stewart water pump, but afterwards I notice the dried coolant spray on the oil filter housing, that hits the pulley and gets flung around. It is not a terrible leak but it is there nonetheless. There is just a bunch of dried coolant spray on the oil filter housing. I am also not sure if it gets better since I am not able to see as I am driving. I really hope that it doesn't have a head gasket issue since when I rebuilt the engine I used all new seals, headbolts, and the head and block were both surfaced.Defective new parts happen but 3 failed seals from new pumps seems very strange.
Do the pumps leak from the very start? Does it get any better after running the motor for 10 minutes or so?
