Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

SOURCE: What would be a reasonable price for the following

it is VERY unlikely that a seven year old car would need that much done to it, unless it had 200,000 or more miles on it. New oil should be the color of honey, not dark brown. That's the easy check.

How much should it cost to replace the timing belt and water pump on a lexus es 2001


My car is a 2001 Lexus ES300 and has 106K miles. I brought it to my mechanic to replace Thermostat, Thermostat Gasket, Timing Belt, Water Pump, Camseals Kit, Crankseal, Air Filter, Fuel Filter, Timing Component and Spark Plugs for a total of $981.24 ($510 of it is labor). He charges at least 1/2 of a dealer so expect to pay more elsewhere. The care drives like a brand new car and I will keep driving it for another 10 years!!!

Wont hold water. big hose on the bottom of the radiator attaches 2 the engine and it leaks right out of the engine underneath that hose...


Well, if that Radiator hose is not leaking, then the Water pump seals have gone bad. More than likely you need a new water pump.

Vehicles w/ Timing Belt Driven Water Pumps Should Always Have The Water Pump Replaced When The Timing Belt Is Replaced.

If you do not, then the Timing Belt will fail, turning a low cost repair into thousands because of valve train damages. . .

For the Timing Belt & Water Pump KIT - its around $258 through NAPA

Replace water pump on 2001 chrysler sebring


if you have the 2.4 engine, the water pump is external and driven by the timing belt.you need a water pump - timing belt component kit. the 2.7 has a internal water pump driven by the timing chain. here again you should install a water pump- timing kit. 2.7 is more complex and expensive to change

Volkswagon passat 4 motion v-6 timing belt


Your engine uses a belt, the shop most likely wants to use a timing belt kit, you should replace the cam belt driven water pump as well

This is the timing belt kit
ACDELCO Part # TCK297P {6 Components (1 Belt, 1 Tensioner, 1 Idler, 3 Seals) #19164609}
BELT KIT,TMG INTERFERENCE ENGINE APPLICATION; DOES NOT INCLUDE CAM. TENSIONER HYD. ASSY.; TIMING BELT COMPONENT KIT W/SEAL PRICE $167.79

This is the water pump
CARDONE SELECT Part # 5583414 moreinfo.gif PRICE $70.99

So about $150 for parts, labor should be around 3-4 hours, here is California the job would price out for around $600.00

The parts are from the lowest price I found on the internet, this is WWW.Rockauto.com

Hi

This isn't too bad a job as timing belts and water pumps go, but then I've done so many timing belts and water pumps on so many different vehicles its all just a blur now!!

It is always recommended that if you release the tension from an old timing belt then you should fit a new belt and discard the old one.

I would also urge you not just to fit a timing belt. Buy a whole belt kit. You should change everything the belt touches which runs on a bearing, and apart from the water pump, it will all be included in the belt kit. The water pump is purchased seperately.

If any of the bearing-run components pack up then it will be just as devastating to the engine as a broken timing belt, because the timing will jump several teeth and valves and pistons will collide. The belt may even sheer or snap.

It is for this reason that if I ever get a call out for a routine timing belt change, I always advise the full kit, and the water pump.

It may sound a bit expensive to be replacing items that may not require changing, but if you think its only once every six years or so then its not that bad.

It is also very important to observe the torque settings for the center bolts of any pulley wheels (idlers and tensioner). If you whack them up too tight then the applied forces from the timing belt, instead of being dissipated through the bolt and into the engine, will instead act upon the bolt and it will eventually snap.

Apart from that, the very best of luck with it.

Regards
