water pump vs ice

well incase you were wondering, the ice won. I didn't have any anti-freeze in my motor and the temperature dropped into the 20's and the water froze. So I start my engine this morning and I can hear the water pump chopping ice, and I was like oh shit. I get out and look under hood and don't see any water comming out so I thought it was ok. So then I drive down the road and my car is overheating so I pull over and pop the hood to see water dripping right under the crank pulley. So I had my car towed home and I need a new water pump.

Now my question is what water pumps will fit on the b16a sir-II?

Thanks.

I just got back from 2 advanced autos and one auto zone and they all had 99 civic si pumps but they weren't right. So I just asked advanced to order a 94 del sol vetc pump.
Damn, I hate learning leasons the hard way.

pop-out plugs should help prevent that.

i had the same thing happen to me recently. i ended up getting my water pump and alternator belt replaced. i paid like $270 to have it fixed which was ALOT less than what i thought i was gonna have to pay. i supplied the new water pump and anti-freeze but had to pay extra for the alternator belt.

when mine busted, water was coming out from where the water pump froze up and busted. this happened in 4 degree temperature. when i went to have it fixed, they had to melt the water that was in the overflow tank before they could empty it. they fixed it and its been running good since.

its suggested that you replace your timing belt while you are at it. i didnt have mine replaced but i did ask them to check it and it was fine according to them.

take my advice, spend the $$ and buy anti-freeze. its supposed to be used for a reason and the reason its used is because it does what its supposed to do....if that made any sense.
