I would say get the pump tested first as they are not the cheapest thing to replace, seems strange just to go in an instant though, I presume the belt is ok and the fluid is correct and you dont have a leak anywhere????

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
