Usually a good time to change it is at about 100,000 miles. change it before it becomes a must or not ride(type of thing). if your water pump is run by your timing belt, then yes you should change the water pump when you do the timing belt. the tension from the new belt will sooner than later kill the bearing in the old water pump and it will cost you twice to fix it versus the one time fix. when you go in to the shop there should be no additional cost to replace the timing belt because it has to come off to replace the water pump.

I have a mazda 626 and it overheat on me and also my timing belt is lose can a timing belt cause a car to overheat and shut down


as the timing belt usually turns the water pump yes it is possible. i am not sure what motor you have in this but i would think you ar elooking at your serpintine belt as your timing belt is behind plastic covers and is not visable. maybe your serpintine belt runs the water pump and as it is loose then it will not spin the water pump causing it to overheat

Replace the crankshaft seal and thermostat also. You may also want to consider the radiator and hoses due to the mileage.

How do you replace the water pump on a 2002 mazda 626 4cyl? does it interact with the timing belt?


hi from uk the 626 water pump is not driven by timing belt but by another drive belt so easy to change after removal of under wing cover to access /see pump b4 you remove drive belt would advise you to slacken off the water pump pully 1st while it is held by drive belt to prevent turning ? then with belt off /pully removed pump is more accessable hope this helps?

Where is the water pump mazda 626 1992 GE


Its under the timing belt cover, driven by the timing belt. Replace the timing belt when you replace the pump. While its apart, replace the cam and crank oil seals, and check the bearing for the tensioner, it will need to be replaced also.
