In my experience with aftermarket water pumps (Gates, Bosch, etc) in Neons, seems like all are made in Asia. Those all leak way sooner than the Mopar version. As much work as it is to replace, bite the bullet and see what the online Mopar sites can save you.
I just want to be sure the Gates pump isn't the exact same one sold at the dealer minus the Chrysler logo. The timing belt I bought at the dealer Says Gates on it and is made in England. If I can save 50% on Gates and it's the same as OEM, why not?
