Unrelated to anything Porsche, but I used to swear by Moog parts. Recently though, I've been getting sub-par parts from Moog. I've had 2 wheel hubs go bad in less than 6000 miles. And the sway bar...

What do you mean, "apparently not in gear"?

Do you mean that after pressing the clutch, putting it in 1st, and releasing the clutch the car goes nowhere? In any gear? Like it's in neutral? If...

Sorry if I wasn't clear. The coolant pump (water pump, as it's often called) has a seal around the pulley shaft. It is not a replacable item, though. You'd have to replace...
