I believe a problem "may" exist with Chevrolet cars employing the new five year or 50K miles anti-freeze. From personal experience and those of relatives it appears the flushing and replacement of anti-freeze at the suggested five year or 50K miles point may lead to water pump failure within weeks even though the car has less than 50K miles on the odometer.

Car has constant miss and poor drivability at times. Car started missing very bad. Shut car off and it would not restart. Towed to dealer. Dealer fixed no start but found miss in car. Stated distibuter cap maybe the problem. This miss developed after warrenty work on water pump and a.I.R pump replacement.
