The only way to "keep an eye" on the waterpump is to scan the ECU for shadow codes that indicate a slow waterpump speed, which do not illuminate the SES. Once you find the code for a slow waterpump it means the pump is on the way out.
Thanks for the correction!

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.
