I had someone tell me that if you add 1 cup of motor oil to the cooling system it will keep your water pump lubricated and never have trouble. Comments anyone?

I dont believe you should put motor oil anywhere but the crankcase. Did you ask this misinformed individual if he does the same thing with his automobile?

Bad idea for several reasons. Oil & water don't mix. You'll never be able to sell it, folks will figure a blown head gasket.

A can of coolant lubricant is cheap at the supply store, & will actually do a good job without the milky mess & bubbles & foam.

That much will turn your coolant milky. You can buy water pump lubricant.

The bearings in water pumps are sealed from the water. A tablespoon or less of brake fluid will lubricate the seal. A change of antifreeze is better, though.
