Which parts are lubricated by the coolant? The water pump bearings are actually protected from the coolant by seals. Once the seal deteriorates and is breached by the coolant the bearings will destruct in short order.


I stand corrected. Ty

I do radiator spill/fill's at 1/2 the allowable intervals that way the coolant in the system is always fresh all the time and there is no need for flush/fill. I have driven all my vehicles to their junk points with original water pumps and radiators.

I go by time for the coolant. I'd never hit the mileage stated in the owners manual vs. the time in use for the coolant.
