There is no easy way to change this, you have to remove the timing belt (but make sure to look for markers on the engine for its proper timing)

I got a 2001 dodge stratus , i believe i need a new water pump i checked all hoses and leak is coming from behind belts on passenger side. I don't have a lot of money and trying to do without taking it...

Replacing the water pump means replacing the timing belt as well because it drives the water pump, and it's likely the belt is due for a change especially after coolant has soaked it. If you're not familiar with camshaft timing etc. you may want to try a reputable repair shop. I'd expect parts and labor to be around $250.00 at most places. If you're not timid a decent manual should get you through it.

Do i have 2 remove the timing belt on a 4g63 sohc to replace the water pump

I'm not familiar with the exact model, but I have never seen an engine design that would require you to remove the timing belt to replace the water pump. Most manufacturers recommend that the timing belt and the water pump be changed at the same time. They have similar failure times, and it's just easier to get to both at the same time.
You should probably take it to a shop and have both changed at the same time if you can afford it. I would not recommend you attempt to change the timing belt yourself, unless you really know what you are doing.

Broken timeing chain on a 1998 Nissan Maxima

Assuming you want to know about replacing it, I'd suggest you have it done by a qualified mechanic, (unless you very familiar with engine repair and have a good set of tools). It's not an inexpensive repair, (it'll be over $500.00). I'd suggest, however, that you have the water pump replaced at the same time. The timing belt and water pump are located next to each other and most of the repair cost is for labor getting access to the belt and pump.

How do you replace the water pump?

the water pump is driven by the timing belt and should be replaced at the same time. the valve timing on this car is crucial and difficult and if you are not familiar with this motor,i recommend you find someone who is.if you do it yourself the parts store should be able to give you a timing mark printout when you purchase the timing belt.

No. You don't have to remove the timing belt to change the water pump. Check out the website and register. It doesn't cost anything and you will have access to a repair manual for the vehicle. The steps for replacing the water pump can be found there. ( I checked) Hope this helps and best wishes.

How to replace timing belt

Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

To replace a timing belt is a big job and should be done by someone who is familiar with that type of work. The entire front of the engine has to come apart so you can get the front timing belt cover off. Once you have the top and lower from timing belt cover off, the belt is now exposed to be replaced. Before removing the belt, make you sure you line up the cams and crank so your at TDC and the marks all line up. Then remove the belt and then you can remove the water pump.

Thanks Jay!

Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

To replace the water pump, the front engine timing belt would need to be removed. This is a very big job and should be done by someone who is familiar with how timing belt jobs are done.

Thanks Jay!

99 Volvo S80 water pump replacement

if this helps.. I had the 1998 model S70. the water pump was driven by the timing belt. you had to take the timing belt off just to replace the water pump. it was just a simple bolt on replacement. the only difficult issue is resetting the hydraulic tensioner on the timing belt. the hydraulic tensioner has to be completely taken off and compressed VERY SLOWLY in a vise. then insert a very hard drill bit or (special volvo tool) into a keeper hole, reinstall hydraulic tensioner onto car and reinstall timing belt.very quickly remove drill bit from keeper hole in tensioner and the tensioner snaps back out to put tension on belt. and you are done.

Audi timing belt

It's a complicated job, and usually takes about 8 hours to do the full service if you're familiar with the car's mechanicals, you have a good array of tools (air tools help a lot), you're familiar with what you're doing, and with how to disassemble everything (including removing the front of the car - I'm not joking). There's more to the job than just the belt too - you need to replace the timing belt, timing tensioner, water pump, thermostat, serpentine belt, and serpentine tensioner. If your cam seals are leaking (which is also known to happen), you'd need those and plan for a couple more hours as well, due to the care that must be taken not to scratch or score the cam end caps.
