Paying extra labor to replace water pump when doing a timing belt?

Do you have to take off the water pump on my 2002 Exterra to replace the timing belt. I was going to have the dealer replace the water pump as I thought it had to come off therefore no extra labor... but they were going to charge me for labor on the wather pump. They said it doesnt need to come off to change the timing belt...What is the truth?

Normally, to replace the timing belt, it's just a matter of moving the tensioner pulley out of the way. To replace a timing chain, the pump must come off. The chain is an internal part of the engine.

I am looking purchasing a 2009 Pontiac Vibe GT but the dealership said that the timing belt tensioner needs to be replace. Can you tell me approximately how much this will cost?


750.00 to 800.00 plus or minus 100.00 to replace the belt tensioner. Prices vary with each car. Labor is the biggest expense. Since parts are cheaper than the labor, it is better to replace several parts at the same time to save paying the high labor costs again in the near future. Replace timing belt, pulleys, belt tensioner and the water pump at the same time. The price to replace all of the mentioned parts would be over 1000.00.

I was going to replace my timing belt for 2001 dodge neon r/t and the mechanic says I have to replace the water pump as well. Is this correct?


The water pump is driven by the timing belt. Do you have to replace it? No. Is it smart to do so as long as your already paying for most of the labor to replace the timing belt? Yes. Worst case scenario is you don't relace it and then 6 months later it starts leaking or the bearings go bad and you will have to spend the money to pull the timing belt agiain to replace the pump. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

At what mileage do you recommend replacing timing belt? And should I replace water pump at the same time? I currently have 99K on my LS430. Please advise.


Every 60-80,000 miles and most definately replace the water pump and all belts that are involved as the most expense is of course the labor and you are naturally paying for that when they go in to replace the pump so it only makes sense to add on the parts that are easily installed once the timing belt is removed.
Good luck hope this helps.

Amount of time expected to do a head gasket, water pump on a 97 olds achieva 2.2?


I'd expect to pay anywhere from 8-12 hours of labor. A head gasket is a tremendously time-consuming job and takes a lot of work. You'll also be paying for other parts (intake and exhaust manifold gaskets have to be replaced, new coolant, new oil since both are drained before the job starts), and if you're doing a water pump, bite the bullet and do the timing belt, timing belt tensioner, accessory belt(s), and thermostat as well - those are normally done with the water pump and there's no sense in paying the labor twice.

Timing belt jumped... why?


This can be caused by not tensioning the belt corectly.When fitting a new belt you should allways replace the tensioner,and make sure the water pump pulley is in good working order.Its always wise to get your timming belt from the dealer.as others are nown to be faulty.Fit new belt follow manuel when doing so.good luck

What's a reasonbale price to replace the timing belt? I have 215k on the civic. Do you replace the water pump as well?


Im thinking 5.0 hrs shop labor and $50 for the belt.At this mileage you probably will be faced with extras like tensioners,pumps,seals etc.Its always best to do everything one time. Avg shop labor is $80 so you might pay $450 for this repair but less is always nice,however due to the extras,this might climb to a $750 repair....
