Thanks, that's what I will do. I'm guessing the stock pump has a plastic impeller and everyone seems to prefer metal, so I was hoping there was an alternative.

Everyone seems to have a favorite pump for their 6 cyls, is there a preferred pump for a 1998 1.9, and is the need to replace at 60k as real? I just acquired one with 68k.
