Pump is about $175 and about 3 hours labour. High end should be $500 including anitfreeze.
If you do it spend the extra $250 and replace the thermostat and flush and fill the system.

Water pump repair

It will need to be replaced, or if it is a gasket, just replace the gasket.

Mail.comI am leaking antifreeze. The Nissan dealer checked it and said it was the water pump. Where is the water pump located exactly? Thanks

The water pump is part of the timing belt assembly, on the front of the engine, so it is labor intensive to replace. Most will recommend you replace the timing belt, idler pulleys, timing belt tensioner and seals at the same time, so you don't have to do the job twice. Most reputable shops will always replace the water pump when they perform a timing belt replacement package, again so you don't have to do the job twice. Hope this helps. Have a nice weekend :O)

Bad water pump

Hello: To replace the water pump on the 4cylinder engine you will need a special tool to hold the water pump drive gear. If you don't hold the water pump drive gear the balance shafts will be out of time (rough running engine) the front cover will have to be removed, the timing chain removed. BIG JOB..... This information is for the 4 cylinder engine. If you have a V/6 it's not that big of job. For the 4 cylinder it would be best to let a professional who has the special tool, do the job.

How to remove a WATER pump

This is not a do it yourself type job unless you have good to moderate mechanical skills. The water pump is behind the cam gear cover and in order to remove replace the water pump you have to remove the timing chain which drives the water pump. This is about a 3-5hr job for a modest mechanic. The trick is insuring you set the timing back properly as if not the car will/may not start or damage may occur for poor timing. I would recommend a CHiltons/Haynes manual as they will walk you much more in depth and ste-by step

Replace water pump

If you have mechanical experience ... automotive mechanical experience, tools, band aids and time - changing a water pump is doable. Be aware, you have to catch the antifreeze, clean dirty surfaces in cramped spaces and be able to get the air out of your system when you are all done. Expect to spend most of a Saturday doing this job if you have all the stuff you need at the front of the job and you don't break anything in between and dont have to go after or exchange other parts. I think there are ignition connections in that area as well ... don't forget the belts ...

I just talked myself out of this job ... how about you? It is doable ... question is do I really want to do it?

I would expect to pay about $150.00 for this job ... I'd rather have my Saturday to spend on the computer.

I need to change the water pump and im not sure how

This is a simple Job.
First you need to make sure that yoou drain your coolant system. This will make it so that when you remove your old water pump you wont spill all of the coolant. Thenn you will need to remove the accessory drive belt. The water pump should be located on the passenger side of the engine. It will be easier to access the water pump from the passenger wheel opening. You will need to jackk you car, remove the tire and inner splash sheild, this will make the job easier but if unable to use a jack, you may be able to remove it from the engine compartment. Once the drive belt is removed, remove the water pump mounting bolts and detach the water pump from the engine. If the water pump is stuck, gently tap it with a soft faced hammer to break the seal.

Hope this helps! Good Luck!

On your 2004 Santa Fe.
The water pump is not driven by the Timing belt.
Is not stricttly nessesary to replace togheter. they are individual.
But I recomend replace the timing belt when you replace the water pump. Because for get axces to the water pump,
you need to remove all the Timing covers.
Is just a few more minutes to remove the Timing belt.
Inspect the Engine seals, cam and crank Replace if need.
My PC show me a 2.4L 4cyl. for 2004 santa fe.

Ok.. The labor for that job Removing the Timing belt and water Pump ...IS:
2.8 hours. just the water pump 2.4 hours.

OK.. I hope this help on your question...
Thank you for use fixya..
