Water pump coolant campaign my auto body shop said my car is leaking coolant and theres a campaign out on the water pump. I'm asking if you could push the campaign through and recall the water pumps to fix this issue as I'm afraid my car will break down.

The vehicle developed an engine surge when starting cold (heated garage 45) and moving approx 50 to 75 feet. The RPM surges from 500 to 1800rpm several times and will occasionally die. This seems to happen with various brands of premium fuel. The dealer claims they have added a fuel conditioner, replaced the high pressure fuel pump. Replaced the spark plugs and reprogrammed the engine computer. The vehicle still surges at various times. It has died after leaving an on street parking spot in traffic. It does not surge on subsequent starts within 6 - 8 hours and generally not during summer months.
