Mercedes Sprinter Van Water Pump | 2002-2003 | 6112001101
When should I replace my water pump?
Water pumps can handle on average 450,000 gallons of coolant in around 4 years (or 62,000 miles). We recommend checking the water pump at each service interval. Gates Waterpumps recommends changing water pumps whenever belt kits are fitted & recommends the replacement of old gaskets & seals with new ones.
I changed my belt kit but not my water pump… am I gonna be alright?
No! We recommend changing the two out at the same exact time. A decision to change the belt now, but not to replace the water pump at the same time, assumes that the water pump will last for another complete duty cycle of the belt.
Do you guys have a water pump that is compatible with newer Sprinter Vans?
