i took out the t-stat because i wasn't getting flow until well after the temp light and the fan would not come on because it was not hot enough at the sensor at the bottom of the rad after that it seems ok. I'll see what happens. does any one know the life span of these water pumps????

You should put a new thermostat in. If you run without, the collant will flow to fast thru the radiator and not cool down.

Hey lars, mine started doing the same thing. I did notice that it mostly did it when I was just putting. I found that if I gave it a good rev or two, that the thermostat would open, and the indication would go out. I'm looking to replace my t-stat also.
