The red fiber gasket on my truck must've gotten pinched when changing the water pump, because coolant poured out as fast as I was pouring it in after assembly. The pump assembly was heavy and I should have used something to tack it in place instead of making my hands do the work of three. Holding the gasket in place, position the pump, and start the bolts. On my car the brown college rule notebook thin paper type gasket seemed like a joke....shouldve went $10 more for the felpro but used the included one and ended up adding a pint of coolant at about every 10,000 like clockwork.
