6000 GDI impeller

Any tips for pulling the impeller on a 6000 GDI? Does anyone use an impeller puller?
Thank you

The impeller for that engine looks like the similar ones I just replaced on my engines. It was super easy just to get a pair of needle nose pliers and grab some of the rubber and pull to get the old one out. Put some dish soap on the new one then just stuffed it in while turning to get the rubber bending the right direction...not sure if that really matters though.

Maybe take a looksie at your belt configuration before pulling off the wheel just so you have an idea of how it goes back on easily.

Oh also, either make sure your kit comes with the seals needed or make sure you don't drop a seal into your bilge. I used brake grease on the rubber seals to help with sealing. worked for me, not sure if I should be using something else like a real sealer but I had it in my tool box so that's what I used.

another Side note, Having a mirror in your kit is nice. makes it easy to see whats going on back there if you don't have enough room for your entire head. only used a mirror on my first change since It was my first impeller change. after the first its pretty easy to just know whats going on by feel.

Hate to thread jack but I heard about an issue with the impeller on 6000GDI.

It's my understanding the GDI motor uses a shaft to drive the RWP rather than off the serpentine belt. Anyway, shaft began leaking and threw water onto the alternator leading to a failure. I'm told the fix is to lift the motor 8-12" so the entire RWP/Shaft assembly can be replaced.

I heard this secondhand but it occurred last week to the owner of an '18 Star.

Replacing the impeller sucks, but it gets easier every time you do it. Took me 45 min first time, now I can do it in 20 minutes, as long as it comes out okay.

I pulled the old one today. It was a little beat up so I will replace it. I am not having any luck finding one online. May have to go to the dealer. Has anyone bought one on line? Pump has Sherwood 15000A stamped on it. On Ilmor website it says part # 150h-0170. Which one is it?

There are direct replacements for boats that are older usually but you got a 2018 so ill assume your part number is still in production....

find/google the engine manual for your year and it will have the impeller part number

JK just read your post correctly..forgot ilmor has a search from their website...

Instructions direct from the manual


GDI Series
If you have a 5500GDI or 6000GDI engine, perform the following process
to change your impeller:
1. Remove the three bolts holding the impeller cap onto the pump.
2. Remove the old impeller and inspect. If any impeller pieces are missing,
be sure to remove any debris from the cooling system.
3. Install the new impeller into the pump body using O-ring lubricant.
Inspect the O-ring and replace if damaged.
4. Reinstall the cap. Tighten the bolts in a star pattern to 89 in-lb
(10 Nm).


aannnnnddd here is the part search straight from Ilmor's site confirming what you saw....definitely go with that part. It could just have another stamps numbers that is unrelated and Ilmor just uses their part number on the site
