Product description

Risk
This product poses a risk of injuries because the water pump impeller does not turn as a new impeller, with a wrong shaft – which is shorter than the nominal one, and does not engage on the timing lay shaft – was installed. Due to this reason, the cooling system does not work properly (Coolant temperature easily exceeds the max. allowed value of > 120° C, even if electric fans correctly switch on), with a consequent damage of some engine parts (piston seizure, for example). That may allow the engine to stall, causing a crash.
