Has anyone had this done to their cooling system to address high temps?

I just had my water pump replaced and forgot to ask if I should have it done, but I was wondering if I should have mentioned it.

They're $8 each now compared to $100 before, no reason not to get them.

I had them installed under warranty and it seems to have cured my over heat condition. They listed in Canada at $805 for the pair - if that doesn't say something about why GM is so screwed up, what does?

Yes, drain some fluid, i drained around 2L, take the hoses out, pop the valves in and put the hoses back on. I'd get some worm clamps as the stock clamps are useless. Then bleed the system as per the manual, which includes clamping the turbo coolant feed line when filling and running the car.

Thanks, couple of quick things.... where do I drain the coolant from? And I'm not entirely sure my turbo fed line isn't braided steel now, ill have to check. And also does this require the vac and fill thing?

Wait, thinking on it from memory, I think a rubber hose attaches to a banjo fitting for my coolant feed line.

The drain valve is on the bottom of the passenger side end tank of the radiator.
The vac/fill is the way a dealer fills/bleeds the cooling system, us peasants do it the other way as stated in the manual.
