Water pumps are a known weak point on the Cummins engines. Expect to replace it about every 75-100k miles. Get a NAPA with lifetime warranty and you won't have to buy another pump, you just have to deal with the labor of replacing it, although the NAPA pump went over 120k before going out.

We have a 2011 ram 2500 Cummins and just had same problem with the water pump failure and throwing the belt. Only 68k miles. Might get me another belt and napa pump and carry with me so will be ready when it happens again.

Other than the downtime and loss of use warranty should take care of it. I've had two Rams with Cummins in them the 98.5 3500 drove it for about 17 years with no major problems. just things with normal wear and tear on the truck. The 14 has about 20k and is running great just got back from about 2500 mile trip to the north east. Ram was a beast!

Yours was a bolting issue, Cummins had a 100K, 5 yr. Warranty when I purchased my 06, 2500. I didn't drive it much and let the 5 yr lapse, pump failed @ 65K, dealer said nada to free replace. Go with NAPA (life time warranty) if you are ever in the same situation.

I guess the newer ones are worse. The general rule on the 89- at least 05 was 150k put a pump on it. I ignored my own information and my belt would chirp the last 10-15k. I finally did some investigation and discovered the cause. Antifreeze on the belt. New Napa pump(and some cussing) good as it will be for xxx miles. I assure you it won't go another 161k before the next.

That's the second water pump issue in a Ram that I've heard of this week.

Replace water pump the easiest one I have ever done!

I feel for you first off- that is one of the worst things to happen engine getting hot no power steering, no brakes,
That stinks, I was lucky enough to have it happen to me just getting off the freeway and I turned to the next street and all the sudden no steering,

"WHAT THE HECK" overheating pulled in (not easy with no power steering and brakes), the belt didn't break just hanging there wouldn't come off,

anyway called AAA towed me home I looked online to see how to fix it, and there was an easier way.

The easiest water pump I have ever done.
Let me see if I can post these photos.

I am grateful I was not out on the road camping, (although I wish I was out on the road camping) anyway the repair was easy as pie,
At home being able to do it relaxed.
