On a Dodge Stratus, you cannot just change the water pump (more properly called "coolant pump") alone, since it is powered by the timing belt, such that you need a complete set that includes the pump, the timing belt and the tensioner. If you decide to just change the pump (or the belt) alone, the other will fail soon. To find the parts cost, first find the engine that your car has, then go to Gates.com and find the replacement set that corresponds to your engine, then go to your favorite parts store and buy a matched set. But beware that changing the pump (or the belt, for that matter) IS NOT AS EASY as changing them in an older car, because the available space in the Stratus is very tight, and you will find that you have to remove many more components and a lot more disassembly just to reach the pump and belt; in other words, if you have the time, tools and available place to do a longer than usual repair, go ahead. But be warned it is much more difficult than in older Dodges, like the Spirit (which requires less than a fourth of the time to do!). So much for "advanced" designs...

Took my car to get repaired said it was water cost 800.00 dollars said it would take 7 hrs to fix is this true


A ball park figure would be around $600 with cost of pump and labor with labor being most of cost as placement of pump. But I would say you have the full right to have a second opinon of what is wrong with your car before you pay out that amount. Remember you are the customer and they are the client. And cost difference of thermostat and pump is some bills and pcoket changes as you have shown above.

Dodge stratus 6 cyl 2005 not sure of engine size. I only want to advise my daughter on what she should do about replacing her water pump. Car seemed to be running fine but was losing coolant. Car was found...


It is common practice to replace the water pump when replacing the water pump also. If the timing belt has recently been replaced than it would not be necessary to replace it again. If the belt is original than it makes perfect sense to replace it when the water pump is replaced as the timing belt will need to be removed in order to replace the water pump. There is no additional labor coast just the additional parts cost of the timing belt.

When it is done you shouldn't have to worry about it for the next 100,000 miles or so.

If you don't replace it when you have the water pump replaced than down the road when the timing belt is due for service you will have to pay for all the labor costs again to replace the water pump.

Labour cost man, I don't know how much the repair shop owners pay to their mechanics, but yes that's over charged, If they work 6 hours on that engine to replace the water pump, it shouldn't cost more than $240, and this price includes all their costs and labor and benefit. try asking them how many hours are they gonna work on that car, and multiply that by $40/hr, it shouldn't take them over 4 hours to install a pump.

2004 KIA Optima LX timing belt/water pump


The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

Water pump replacement


First, I'll tell you what I used to tell customers that did this: Do you bring your own uncooked eggs to the diner?
The cost will vary... each shop charges a different labor rate. Without encountering any unforseen problems, I doubt if the cost will be more than $140 (excluding antifreeze). But, when approached with this while running a shop, I used to also add the "markup" I would have made on the pump as well... after all, why would a shop want to do the same job and make less than they would normally??? So if they charge you 20 or 25 more $, dont be surprised!
