Your belt will need to be changed again at roughly 150000 miles.Whenever replacing components that relate to timing you should do them all at the same time. it is a difficult and time consuming job to get to the timing gear so for the sake of just changing the hydraulic tensioner and paying to get the belt changed again within a short period of time. its smarter to get it all done at once, and not pay someone to do the job twice. if you do it all now, you can wait another 60000 miles to get it done rather than doing just the hydraulic and then having to do it all again in only 20000 miles.Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Do I change water pump when having timing belt changed

I would go to auto zone and get a diagram and the timing belt and do it yourself and the water pump (no it does not have to be changed everytime the timing belt is changed but if the car has over 60,000miles then it is best to change them both) it is not that hard especially if the car is not out of time just make sure you disconnect the negative side of the battery

SOURCE: I have a 2004 hyundai santa fe with 90000 miles.

It needs to be replaced ASAP> This vehicle has an interference engine which means that if the belt breaks the engine will need to be rebuilt/replaced due to the valves making contact with the piston and bending them. The belt should be inspected around every 10k miles, but should be seriously looked into being replaced at least around 80k miles. Also have them check the pulleys and the tensioner. If these are weak and worn out they should be replaced as well, so that you don't have any problems for some time.

SOURCE: A mechanic told me that my 2000 bug needs a timing

A timing belt 1st and foremost concern is it's physical condition. The factory recommends replacing them at 80K mi disregarding visual inspection. At 40K a visual check for wear condition will be the deciding factor for replacement.
The first solution is truly weak and not a very good advice. There are people that truly care and first thing that comes into their mind is Safety before and after any correction. I wouldn't recommend you using brake components pulled out from a junkyard and be happy I saved you tons of money only to get junkyard quality brake application, maybe he would.

SOURCE: Timing belt replacement for 2001 Kia Sephia

For California models recommended at 105,000 miles.Belt needs to be inspected at 60,000 and 90,000, miles and replace at 105,000 miles.
Except California replace at 60,000 miles. Note 1.8L engine is a interference engine, if timing belt goes bad will cause major internal engine damage.

Hello Sir:

Your Timing belt can fall under Preventive maintence, With your Mileage Being 82,000 Miles, Just to Make sure your not in risk of being Broken Down. I would go a head and Replace it if Nothing else just knowing that your Good to go as Far as the Belt Slipping or Breaking.

As Far as the Waterpump if you have Kept Coolant in your Cooling system and have not had any Overheating Problems,And NO leaks are Visable.

I see no Reason to change out your water Pump,However since you are asking if you should change it,Again Just to Know that your pump will be new and no worries, If you Change Out Your Waterpump, Also ,Put new Coolant anf Change your Thermastat.

Also Inspect You Radiator Hoses and Hearter Hoses ,to see it the are showing cracks or are not Hard. You should beable to Open your Radiator Cap(when Cold) and Just apply Pressure on Your Hoses to see if they are Still Soft .Also check your Fan Belt(Serpitine belt) I recommend you Chane it about every 25,000-30,000 Miles.

I hope i've Given you the Solutuons you Need .Please let me Know by Voting on the Quality of my Solutions;

Thank You From: d_hubbs

I changed my timing belt, water pump and I belive the harmonic tensioner when my rodeo turned 100k. A year later I heard a knocking noise coming from the area where the timing belt is located. The noise...


Yes its the correct name. Yes it should have been replaced..... but its up to the mechanics advice and the customer. its not normally replaced, but I replace all parts including the water pump, just as a matter off service, to avoid your exact problem.

Someone told me to change out the timing belt and water pump and everything included (kit) but at what mileage or is this just a scam. it is a mitsubishi galant 2001 4cyl.


WELL TO BEGIN WITH, THE TIMING BELT & WATER PUMP NEED TO BE INSPECTED AT ABOUT 100,000 MILES. IF THEY ARE FOUND TO BE BAD ENOUGH THEN CHANGE THEM. THE WATER PUMP HAS WHAT ARE CALLED WEEP HOLES. THESE WEEP HOLES LET YOU KNOW THAT THE WATER PUMP IS BAD INTERNALLY, BEFORE IT LOCKS UP. THE BEST WAY TO CHECK THE TIMING BELT IS TO REMOVE THE COVER.

Lexus rx300 should i replace water pump at same time as timing belt


yes it will be a little more than just the timing belt but it will save money if the pump goes bad later-when the pump leaks it will leak onto the timing belt and need replaced again
so yes i would do them at the same time

? to Replace Timing belt on 2000 Lexus Rx300 with 57,000 miles.


If it is running perfectly I wouldn't think that you would need to replace the timing belt. You shouldn't need to replace that until 100,000-120,000 miles. I would definitely hold off until now unless you have start having some timing problems. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

i dont see why you would have to take the engine apart for a timing belt you only need to remove a few items the belt and spark plugs should be part of the tune up wich is considered a major tune up wich should also involve water pump and filters
