Do I chanage water pump when changing timing belt on 2002 lexus GS300?


Hi there,

Most Japanese designed engines have an internally mounted water pump, usually driven by the cambelt.

When we talk in terms of cam design, there are two types of engines: a) Interference and b) non-interference.

An interference egine means - if the cambelt were to break whilst engine is running, there will be major internal engine damage.
A non-interference engine means - if the cambelt were to break whilst engine is running, there will NOT be any serious internal damage to the engine.

Note: the GS300 engine (3.0L 6-cyl) is considered a Non-Interference engine.

So, one of the most critical compenents which MUST be changed, is the cambelt itself. Most manufacturers recommend changing this belt every 90,000 - 100,000km's (80,000 miles). If you have a non-interference engine, this period is not as critical, but should still be changed soon, to avoid the inconvenience of a breakdown whilst travelling.

The 2nd critical compenent is the Water Pump. The worst possible outcome of a failed waterpump, is your engine will suddenly drain of all coolant, resulting in serious overheating, causing serious internal damage to your engine.

Although there is no specified time to change the waterpump, a waterpump endures wear and tear like any component and lifespan can reduce rapidly beyond 100,000km's (80,000 mles). As the waterpump is situated next to the cambelt, it is a general rule to change out both cambelt and waterpump at the same time.

The majority of the cost to replace the cambelt, is in labor (ie opening the engine etc). If you choose to replace only one of these components, you will need to be prepared to pay for same procedure again in future, to replace the 2nd component.

Therefore, it can be more economical in the long term, to have both components changed together.

Hope this helps...

On a 2001 mazda bravo turbo disel when do I have to change the timming belet it's done 176000 ks


Hi there,

Without knowing which diesel engine you have, I'll have to guess that you have a 2.5L (B2500) - Note: the more detailed information you give us, the more accurate our answers will be :-)

As a general rule, cambelts (with tensioner assembly & seals) have a limited life and should always be replaced every 100,000km, or sometimes earlier depending on manufacturer. The reasoning behind this is that most engines will suffer major internal damage if the cambelt snaps (this is what is meant by 'Interference' engines). As the engine has to be opened up to carry out this service, it can be a costly maintenance. For this reason, it is also common to replace the waterpump at the same time (to avoid having to open up the engine again) as waterpumps have been known to fail beyond 100,000km.

The good news....if you DO have a 2.5L (B2500) engine, then this engine is a NON interference engine - which means, if the cambelt did snap, your engine would not suffer any internal damage, compared to interference engines.

Hope this helps.....

Volvo s40 late 2003 105000km. Extra service price


Hi,you should change cambelt pully(there is a bearing inside pully before it worn out completely,it will cause high friction and heat to burn out your bell and rattling noise).buy cambelt pully from the dealer then take it to the garage ask them to put it in for you (labor about 30.00 dollars)...the rest is ok to wait until 150.000 miles.
good luck!!!!!!!!!!!

Cambelt and alternator belt


I don't know exactly the engine code but may be this 205 documents can help you.
The alternator belt or ancillary belt need to be removed before you can proceed to cambelt.

Timing belt


I would have thought it should be done around 100,000 kms like most cars, but some makes are extending the service schedules for cambelts these days. If it has never been replaced, then it is imperative that it gets done very soon. Without getting too technical, if the cambelt was to break, the cam suddenly stops while the engine is running potentially leaving a valve wide open. The pistons keep moving as they are powered on by the motion of the vehicle, and they smash into the open valves, causing a great deal of damage to the engine internals. This sounds expensive and it is. Often it is cheaper to install a second hand engine than repair the old one after a broken cambelt. So yes, do it soon!!
