Depends on where you go. A dealer is going to charge you through the nose. An independent shop will be somewhat less. I'd recommend you do the whole timing belt service though - the water pump's replacement schedule is along with the t-belt, tensioner, serpentine, etc.

If you're in the northeast US, reply here with an email address and we can talk. I do Audi servicing out of my own garage and can likely beat the indie shop's prices (and the dealer for sure) since I don't have the overhead of a shop:)

you should did your home work before removed old water pump most vw engines water pump is part of the timing belt assembly so when time to replace around 80k miles you should order complete timing belt kit which includes water pump with it.

its a labor cost savings in the long run,, hes gonna be right there to replace it since the front of the motor will already be torn down for easy access, depending on how much more he wants to do this,, thats the question,, I would think since the part is already off it would be minimal if anything excluding the cost of the pump itself, why take a chance of a overheating problem if you can handle it now,, if you do this, have him replace the thermostat now too !!!

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.

Should water pump, oil pump be replaced at the same time of timing belt replacement? And approcimately how much it cost?

No way! If there haven't been any problems with those parts, don't waste your money. Completely unnecessary. I'm just guessing but it sounds like a shady mechanic is trying to rob you.

No. You don't have to remove the timing belt to change the water pump. Check out the website and register. It doesn't cost anything and you will have access to a repair manual for the vehicle. The steps for replacing the water pump can be found there. ( I checked) Hope this helps and best wishes.

Water pump

It should be 2.4 hours @ shop rate plus the water pump dealer cost for the pump is 250.00 I recommend aftermarket part plus 2 gallons of coolant they may assess a diagnostic charge. I would probably bill 3 hours. .4 of an hour is with a/c deduct if no a/c compressor. This is a good time to have serpentine belt replaced as it has to come off to complete service.
