When installing a new water pump, or after flushing out your system, never reuse old coolant. Over time it can chemically break down and actually harm and attack the internals of your cooling system.
Also – Old gasket removal is critical to obtaining a good, leak-free seal. Using a putty knife, lightly scrape the water pump mounting surface until the bare metal of the block is clean.
