    I have a leaky water pump on my 405 TD but need to drive 150 miles,
    mainly motorway. Never faced this before. Questions:

    1. Can the leak get worse very fast?
    2. Will the temperature guage - reliable up til now - get unreliable if
    the water gets very low?
    3. Does speed make a difference to rate of leak?

    Obviously I want to set off with gallons of water on board and check and
    fill up at intervals as necessary.

    I've already put in K-Stop? K-Leak? but it didn't help much.
