It should be 2.4 hours @ shop rate plus the water pump dealer cost for the pump is 250.00 I recommend aftermarket part plus 2 gallons of coolant they may assess a diagnostic charge. I would probably bill 3 hours. .4 of an hour is with a/c deduct if no a/c compressor. This is a good time to have serpentine belt replaced as it has to come off to complete service.

96 Firebird, Replaced water pump, fuel pump - Now blows head gasket.


Get yourself another mechanic. This guy is not doing his job. It shouldn't cost $1600 to change a water pump and fuel pump. No proper mechanic would remove a thermostat to replace the O-ring and put the old thermstat back in. It wouldn't be uncommon for the coolant level to drop after changing the thermostat. It probably only needs to be topped up. No, the motor doesn't have to come out to replace the head gasket and I don't see it costing $2500. Before you spend any more money there, take the car somewhere else and get another opinion. I bet that if you fill up the coolant bottle for 2 0r 3 days it will stop losing coolant. Hope this helps.

I have a 1998 volkwagon beetle 2.0 that needs a water pump so i buy the water pump install it put everything back together and put water inside then it just spilled out. tried to start it and now the


you should did your home work before removed old water pump most vw engines water pump is part of the timing belt assembly so when time to replace around 80k miles you should order complete timing belt kit which includes water pump with it.
so after you finish up if you didnt try to hard to run engine you may or may not damage any piece from your valve train!!even with all proper parts you have on your hand you still need high cost speciality tools to complete timing belt replacement on that engine recommendetion is tow your vehicle to mechanic shop and let them do it for you it will save you time and money!
good luck!

Labour cost man, I don't know how much the repair shop owners pay to their mechanics, but yes that's over charged, If they work 6 hours on that engine to replace the water pump, it shouldn't cost more than $240, and this price includes all their costs and labor and benefit. try asking them how many hours are they gonna work on that car, and multiply that by $40/hr, it shouldn't take them over 4 hours to install a pump.

2004 KIA Optima LX timing belt/water pump


The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

WHERE IS THE WATER PUMP LOCATED ON A 1998 PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER


Here are the steps required to change the water pump on the 3.0L engine.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the drive belts. Remove the timing belt covers and the timing belt.
  4. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
  5. Separate the water pump from the water inlet pipe and remove the water pump.
  6. Inspect the water pump and replace as necessary.
To install:
  1. Clean all gasket and O-ring surfaces on the water pump and water pipe inlet tube.
  2. Wet a new O-ring with water and install it on the water inlet pipe.
  3. Install a new gasket on the water pump.
  1. Install the pump inlet opening over the water pipe and press until the pipe is completely inserted into the pump housing.
  2. Install the water pump-to-block mounting bolts and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  3. Install the timing belt and timing belt covers. Install and adjust the drive belts.
  4. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Fill the cooling system to the proper level with a 50/50 mixture of clean, ethylene glycol antifreeze and water.
  5. Run the engine and check for leaks. Top off the coolant level, if necessary.

I am a mechanic in a shop in my area and replacing a water pump on your car would not cost that much money. I checked the prices of a water pump and thermostat and I would not charge more than $250 for the job. I pays 1.5 hours labor to replace the pump. I hope this is helpful.
