Im either going to advance,oreillys or autozone for a new pump
Out the following brands which one have you guys had good or bad experiences with?
Murray temperature control(oreillys)
Duralast(autozone)
Carquest(advance)
Im leaning towards the murray from oreillys.
I ask because i just had a pretty new bosch pump die in a pretty short time(all factors such as belt tension and pully wobble were not the prob) dont want to be doing this again next year.

IIRC, Napa, Carquest/advance water pumps are made by GMB. I've never had an issue with these. Lifetime warranty.

it's not GMB these days, it's something called "toughOne". However, their remanufactured is showing as an A1/Cardone. I also am going to need a water pump soon and that's probably what I'll get (unless I order something nicer from Rock Auto or Summit or somewhere).

ETA: It's the Advance/Carquest one that isn't GMB. I don't know about NAPA.
