    .2S Water Pump Failure

    For the last 2 months, a whistling sound was emanating from the engine when running at operating temps.  This was only at idle, even feathering the accelerator caused the noise to dissappear.  Initial diagnosis from the OPC was a noisy V-beltSmiley.  On return for a second look, the experts then said it was the air pumpSmiley. At the same time the PDK box started acting up, it felt as though the "brain" was dipping the clutch on overrun, thus losing engine braking (i drive in manual mode all the time). Now after leaving the car with them for a week, they say that its the water pump, and they are currently replacing it.  Touch wood, they are right and the gremlins dissappear.

    So if you ever experience a supercharge type whine at idle, beware, it could be a waterpump issue.

    Water pump is a common problem with the Gen 2 cars mate. My car had three water pumps in 9K miles....

    I have not heard of any 997.2 water pump failures in the US.

    Re: .2S Water Pump Failure

    Im from the US and I just had to get my water  pump changed with only 3,000 miles on it :(, from what I read this will be a common occurrence, along with adding fuel between service intervals! 


    Re: .2S Water Pump Failure

     right before i started hearing the noise, which sounds absolutely terrible I felt like I lost some power also and my shifts on my pdk were less precise also, very strange its back at dealer now hopefully all will be well...
