My Jeep was over heating and then started leaking antifreeze, Changed out thermostat and now the water pump. When i started it up and let it run for about 10 mins checking for leaks and such all of a sudden the top of my radiator cracked and antifreeze went a flying. Question is i heard there is 2 types of water pumps, 1-forward rotation 1-reverse rotation. could it have done that if I put on the wrong pump? Any help would help Thanks
