Scotty K did a video last week on not buying certain models of Fords, Subarus or Nissans because of them having engines with timing chain driven water pumps and the issues that can arise with coolant leaking into the engine oil.

I get it that some newer FWD based Ford 3.5's had issues, but he ranted about Nissan VQ35's and Subaru 6cyls and how awful they are with this design. Has anyone ever heard of a VQ loosing it's water pump and ruining the engine? Or the Subaru 6?

I like his videos for the comedic value, but man he's got some followers!

People enjoy watching idiots. How many people watch Richard Feynman talk about quantum mechanics?

Quantum mechanics is one of the most un-interesting things Feynman talked about.
Its rather amazing to think that he won the 1965 Nobel prize in physics and his true genius was in his ability to relate to people.

Everyone needs to read "Surely You're Joking Mr Feynman!".

I have a 17 Subaru 3.6 and I have no fears....What I do fear is the 2020+ line of Subaru engines.

Internal water pumps aren't my favorite design. Old school design has more benefits to the owner.

I couldn't agree more on that. I'd assume avoid them if possible. What struck me was he ranted like this is some huge failure area on Nissan VQ V6s. I've owned two of them at this point and have had some in the family go crazy amounts of miles. I didn't even realize they had internal water pumps!

Also never heard of this failing on Subaru H6's

I get a laugh out of some of the vehicle he states are good old cars that are built way better than the new ones. One in particular was a late '90s/early'00s silverado. Saying they were built well unlike the new ones of today. I remember back when they were new, the same thing was said how the new ones were garbage and not good like the 88-98s were. He's a silly one.
