I would assume that the factory warranty is still in effect. Wouldn't bother wasting my time and money. I'd take it back to the dealership and let them fix it. That is if it's still under warranty.....maybe give a quick look at fluid level and top it off before taking it to get repaired.

Hello, What was the final outcome ? I have an 18 GC with same engine and WP. I have 75 K miles on mine and am on the 5th WP which is currently leaking. Curious to know what you have learned, I have alot of information on this. Thanks

Hello, yes, please let me know what you find out. I mistakenly set online fifth water pump. I’m actually on my fourth. Dealership replaced two Mopar water pump which both failed and then I replaced 2 gates water pumps that both failed. I’ve done a lot of research on this and at this point all I can determine is that it’s a poorly designed water pump and the seal is prone to failure. Chrysler won’t redesign because it’s cheaper for them just to slap a new water pump on the car than to redo the whole water pump. From your picture, I would guess yours has been weeping for a long time. And it is clearly leaking from the weep sump which is located at 6 o’clock position on the front of the water pump body. Basically means the seal has failed. That is where all of mine have failed at. I should be getting some more definitive information from the engineers a gates next week, and I can pass it along. Good luck. I’ll wait to hear from you. Steve.
