So just the other day my father was out to dinner and next to the wings place there was a local car cruise. There were about 30 or so cars parked which my father made his way over. My father made his way over to a gentleman that had a new 5.0 and began a conversation with this man and his wife. During the conversation my father had mentioned to this other 5.0 owner how his son (me, lol) had a V6 model. Some how the conversation lead into V6 models and according to my father , this other gentleman began talking about the V6 and its water pump location. This 5.0 owner began telling my father how a mechanic told him the V6 has the water pump in such a hidden hard to reach location should it fail, it will cause pistons to break. He told my father the water pump in the 5.0 is located in a different location and if the water pump broke, no pistons would break. Just curious , but does anybody know what that guy was talking about. Now obvious if a water pump fails the engine can and will overheat so you don't want to drive all over with a busted water pump but what's this about pistons breaking easily? Anybody heard of this? Does the location of the water pump on the 3.7 cause pistons to break should there be a failure?
