If you have the 3.4L engine, easy, if you have the 2.4L HARD! Best left to a professional.

How long does it take to fix the water pump on a 2000 oldsmobile Alero if the water pump is behind the timing belt and how much should it cost?


most shop rates (depending on area) are around 60 to 100 bucks an hour. its most likely a 4 to 6 hour job plus parts. the only way to know for sure would be to look it up in a shop labor manual

How much will it cost to have my water pump replaced in my 2000 Alero. I am getting a quote of over $1,000.00 dollars because of the position the water pump is placed.


Your 2000 Olds Alero should have the 3400 V-6 engine...the water pump sells for about $45. The change out does not require the removal of any major components...(ie engine mounts etc.) You can loosen the serpentine belt to gain full access to the water pump bolts...Yes you will lose some anti-freeze and need to refill after replacing the pump...antifreeze $8.50 per gallon...recommend you use antifreeze "Good for All Models" as it has proven to be the best for longevity...Hope this helps...Your estimate is way to high...A shop will mark up the part slightly, and charge for labor...This job should be completed in less than 1 labor hour...$55. to $75. per hour depending on your location...PLEASE shop around if you cannot do this one by yourself:)

The water pump is leaking in my 2003 Oldsmobile alero


If your water pump is leaking, then it will have to be replaced. This is not a job for the beginner as you will have to rmove the timing chain cover, harmonic balancer and timing chain. If you tackle this job your self make sure you mark your valve gears, crank and replace the chain exactly the way you removed it or your timing will be off.

Window will not roll up


Their is a separate motor for each window. The least expensive fix is to replace the entire track assembly and motor. This is not a big job if you have done it before but it could be if you are not mechanical.
