Pulled the pump today....it looks like new inside. Going to put it back together tomorrow. Going to flush the core again while it's apart. I will get heat....I will win....thinking positive.

Take heater core hoses off where they mount to the engine and hook up a garden hose and flush it both ways for a long time and then do it again.Ive flushed sons 2000 3 times now and Im still getting junk out of it.

Well...put it all together and did a complete system flush. Thought why keep flushing the heater core and have the rest of the junk in the system plugging off the core. Found that the pump was not as good as I thought. After flushing the pump seal was shot. Must have been enough junk in it to keep it from leaking. Off the the parts shop in the morning for a new pump. Hope it works....forecast is for -35C for Tuesday.

This is exactly how my pump on my 1999 looked. $30 for a new one, not rebuilt, at NAPA.

Just re-read and bumping this thread... given the "polar vortex" it may be worthwhile for some of you guys north of the Gulf Coast...

Thanks for bumping this thread. I found out tonight that my heat doesn't work very well. It looks like I will start with a heater core flush this weekend once it warms up. We're not used to this freezing crap in GA.
