Don't waste your money, spend a few bucks extra for an Aisin pump. 30,000 miles and leaking at the freeze plug. Already have an OE Aisin pump on the way, I guess I know what my weekend project is.

Well that sucks, but thanks for sharing the knowledge.

I hate when people say to avoid certain brands blindly, so I appreciate seeing evidence!

I've used Hepu's on my previous red blocks with no issues. They seem like they are decent quality, but after this it's OE only.

I replaced the pump today with an Aisin unit. Older stock made in Japan unit, the current one is made in Czech Republic.

Comparison, aftermarket on the left, Hepu center, and Aisin on the right.
