I didn't get anything (yet?) but form reading the Traverse and Enclave boards, a few things to note:

1 - It is not a recall, but a customer satisfaction campaign.
2 - It seems all they are doing is checking the coolant level and topping it off if it is low.

Re: Water Pump Seal ?

I took my Acadia in last week because I was losing antifreeze and it smells like af when its running. They cited the TSB and 'topped off' the reservoir. I tried asking the obvious questions and got nothing.

Re: Water Pump Seal ?

This water pump seal TSB seems silly; maybe because the radiator cap is under the front plastic engine cover? Top off and send you on your way??

I think because the water pump leaks are intermittent, they may be able to save a few engines with this TSB. They should be thoroughly inspecting for leaks around the WP, but that is a different story. Legal decided to leave that little blurb out of the TSB.

Re: Water Pump Seal ?

Took our 2011 Acadia in today because the coolant was low. We'd driven 2400 miles over 10 days, and towards the end of the trek, I noticed the smell of coolant. The dealership did a pressure test and found an "obvious" leak at the water pump. Three hours later, we had a new water pump and new coolant.

Is this part of the TSB?

Not really. If the pump is found to be leaking it would be replaced under warranty. There's nothing in the document about replacing the pump, just checking and topping off the coolant.

Re: Water Pump Seal ?

I hope this is not a cheap way to get out of replacing leaking water pumps under warranty.
