We have a 97 Saturn SL2. The belt tensioner assembly cracked and after the guy replaced it, immediately upon driving, the low coolant light starts flashing.
Drove it this way a few times while keeping an eye on coolant level. Parked car for a few days, then notice a big puddle of green coolant under car. It has been sitting now for sevearl weeks.
Could increased tension from the new tensioner pulley cause the water pump to die?
The car has never overheated, though. If water pump was toast woudln’t it overheat?
Could the guy have nicked something or left something off when putting the new tensioner on? What could he have done?
Tell me where to start.
Any help/advice appreciated.
