Yes.

After the Chrysler pump was replaced at ~100,000, the NEW Chinese one failed ~20k miles later. Then the one I put in (My parts guy assured me it was quality) failed after a couple years.

2001 with a '1st design' tensioner.

My Neon (essentially same engine) doesn't have problems, I do buy NEW Chrysler pumps and it has the ancient hydraulic tensioner.

Your failures are an exception to history? I would be curious what exactly is failing on them? All these pumps where ever made are a simple design, an impeller a seal and a bearing. Not much to really happen to kill them prematurely.

Actually the bearing is the problem these days. Quality of bearing being perduced today are a huge problem in general. That's what failed in the ones I've experienced. JMTC
