I know the 4.0 goes through water pumps, but this is getting out of hand. Looked at the obvious signs, Clutch Fan, Pully, etc...... What else could be the problem. The truck runs fine other than this. I have put on Quality water pumps, so i can see one going out, maybe two, but come on, THREE. Something is amiss here. Any Help would be appreciated.
Why is there a fish finder in your Jeep?
Not hard, if you have a socket wrench and the mental capacity of a ham sandwich.
Let me add this, I think there is an abundance of parts hitting the shelves everywhere that are sub-standard as far as quality, for the sake of a competitive price. It is very possible you are buying different water pumps with the same supplier for the bearing inside it. I would be tempted to go to a dealership and see about finding a factory original new waterpump if it really is becoming an issue for you, if that is, you have not tried that already. And, if the dealership does indeed have new factory original water pumps available, not sourced from an other than original supplier. I am using a factory original new one now, and it is holding up excellently.
