Well crap...water pump???

Made a 400 mile drive yesterday just fine. This morning I drove from my motel about 2 miles to where my class is at. Ran inside for a minute, came back out to my rig just now to coolant all over the ground in front of the truck :/
Sound like a water pump?
I should prob throw in a 203* tstat while we're in there eh?
I have all my tools with me, how hard of a parking lot job is this?
Btw, the truck was not up to WOT at all this morning.

Well it's in the shop :/
Damn I hate paying people to work on it.
There goes my plowing profit from earlier in the week.
I'm having them do the tstat while they're in there. Their computer shows it calling for a 205* tstat. Is that the best temp to put in?

I hope you took a look at it yourself before taking it to a shop. Hell, it could be something as simple as a loose pet**** on the radiator.

I can't believe this site edited pet****. Maybe I'll have better luck with drain plug.

It was def the water pump.
So they installed a new tstat, a 205* one.
Previously my temp gauge in the cluster barely reached the N on "normal".
They brought it up to WOT and now it's reading up on the R. I realize it's still within the "normal" range but it's not normal for *my* truck.
Is this anything I should be concerned with?
Also they said they did a full drain and flush and refilled with 2 gallons of 50/50 extended life (green) coolant.... I thought these things drank a lot more then that?
Again, any cause for concern here?

I'm not sure about the OBS trucks, but my superduty takes 8 gallons of coolant. I'm sure a honda civic takes more than 2 gallons.
