Hi, l was draining my cooling system in the morning in order to flush it, and l saw with the sun light hiting straight over my coolant a very little alumunim particles, l was woundering, could it be a wearing problem with the pump, bearings, bushings, engine coolant passages, something to be worry about?, any advise?. Best regards.:thumbup::thumbup:

do you know IF this is the First coolant change??? if so.. could be production machine blow off.

except for the water pump.. nothing moves.. except coolant...
and pump would have bearing failure and leaking before anything could start eating aluminum.

on my Honda water cooled lawn tractor.. water pump seized.. and did not eat aluminum... and the shaft bent from the bearing seizing .

Are you the original owner? If not, maybe someone put "stop leak" in the coolant? Do you play Queen music a lot? :mrgreen:
