I replaced my failing AC Delco unit with this new GMB pump on my trailblazer when the fan clutch gave up the ghost. Its' fit, form, and function is the same as the much more expensive dealer part and OE installed part. They look identical next to each other. The hardest part of the install was removing the fan clutch after that it was cake. I've used these GMB pumps in many cars from Toyota, Ford, and GM vehicles and all are performing just as well as the day they were installed. I usually do wp replacement as routine maintenance at around 100K or so just to save headache from a catastrophic failure on the highway. The Trailblazer 4.2 I6 pump is a common issue due to faulty cooling fan clutch causing a wobble in the fan that eventually causes the pump to fail. This pump is up to the job and has proven itself over many applications that I've installed it in. I don't even look at the re-manufactured pumps if there is a new alternative listed. The new part is usually just a fraction more and is worth the little extra $$.

This Water Pump Is Inexpensive To Replace. Meaning The Impeller Is Made Of Steel Rather Than Stainless Steel. Hopefully The Remainder Of The Components Are Of Equal Or Better Quality. Lets Hope It Lasts. I Received 160K of Faithful Service From The Factory Pump!! Stay Tuned.

            This is a great part. It comes with a paper gasket that I put silicone on just to be safe. I saw some reviews that said the impeller on some models wasn't stainless but this one definitely is. The bearings were very tight which was a good sign. I installed this on a 02 Envoy SLE V6.

            Replaced a 9 year old factory water pump in Feb 2015 and now a little over 1 year later having to replace again! Free warranty but factor in the time and material and you are better off going with factory unless you are planning on getting rid of the vehicle in less than a year....

            I posted a 5 star review around January 2015 and here I am in April 2015 to report the pump gave up. Had to have my truck towed and have it replaced. I will not recommend or buy this brand again. I am posting this cause I could not find a place to edit my previous review. Take care all.

              Comments about CARQUEST Water Pump - New:

              My 2007 Chevy Colorado 2.9 liter extended cab had a rattle/clank under the hood. I found out after researching online that it was probably the bearings going bad in the water pump. Having hit 130,000 miles I didn't feel bad about changing it anyway if I was wrong. I found a lot of information online and even a video of how to do it, and what tools I needed. Being a person who is not a mechanic nor mechanically inclined I had the new water pump installed in around 2 hours. The pump fit perfectly and came with a great gasket. So far no leaks and the Temp gauge is reading right at where the old pump was reading when it was in good condition. No more clank/rattle sound!!! Very happy and love the feeling of over coming a problem. I must thank all the great people at the Advance Auto in Yanceyville, NC store # I believe is 6197. Very kind and helpful.

                  Hi Triz, happy to help you! The limited lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid for the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.
