This is the 2nd pump on this car. The first one leaked when we bought the car new in 89. Changed on warranty. This one has lasted 100k miles. Foolishly thought it would be better than that. Parked until I decide what to do. I really don't feel like doing it myself, having to fiddle with the timing belt, don't have the tools to redo the timing belt tension. Have never had to mess with that before. This car's drivetrain has been flawless. Just normal maintenance.
So this pump has been on the car since 1989/1990 when it was replaced under warranty ? Typical Alfa, the water pump lies in wait, providing good service decade after decade, lulling you into complacency and then, a mere 32 years after it was installed, it suddenly fails, leaving you in the lurch. Sneaky things those water pumps.

When was the last time the timing belt was replaced?
