I went out to find myself. If I return before I get back, have me wait for me.

Yes. The new pumps are identical to the old ones. We stock one, ill check the box tomorrow to see where its from.
Well I got told they pressure tested it and found no leaks, coolant level is fine. They claimed there was no bulletin or anything out regarding this issue. I mentioned PI 0740 and he's like "oh well, we'll go ahead and check this one out..... The service adviser claimed his tech was on the phone with GM tech support. I find it sad that we need to tell these guys were to look to fix a potential issue.
I am starting to get the smell intermittently. At times it can come on so suddenly and strongly that it is instantly nauseating. Film on the windshield, and res. level is about 1.5" lower than it was at my last oil change 3K miles ago....either that or i didn't notice that it was already starting to lose coolant.
Car is 9 months and 14K miles old. Having toxic coolant leaking into the passenger compartment/coming through the vents is not at all OK.
I'm tempted to try to find it myself, but if i do then i'd still have to bring it into the dealer for the warranty work or i assume i'd have to pay out of pocket for whatever part(s) are needed... and that's not going to happen on a new car.
Dealership called and said they are replacing the heater core... I hope to **** this works! it will be in next week.
I don't see how the smell could be generated from a slow steady leak. I go days without smelling anything, and then all of a sudden get a smell so strong I have to put the window down in <30* weather or i'll be sick.
I've had several vehicles with a slow leak from the "weep hole" on the water pump and didn't notice for some time.
