In in the same boat here. I have an extended warranty so I had decided to wait and see but as I get further up in miles I do get more nervous if planning a long trip.

I really wish there was more "warning" signs of failure. For example I used to own a BMW f650 GS motorcycle. They were famous for water pump failures but the pump had a weep hole. You could keep an eye on it and once you saw water weeping a bit & leaving residue there you knew it was time.

The pole we need to take is how many LCI or w/ replaced pumps have gone over 65-80 k?
