View Full Version : Overheated Vortec 8100

My 2003 X-Star overheated today and the excessive heat cracked the exhaust silencers at both corners. I assume the water pump failed. Has anyone faced this problem? This repair is probably no going to be cheap.

If all that went bad is the water pump, no big deal. Depending on how hot it got, may have head or head gasket issues. I'd have it checked out really good before going back out on the water with it.
