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...

Where is the waterpump on a 1995 Subaru Impreza and do you have to remove radiator to replace ?


The waterpump is driven by the cambelt. It is under the big black plastic cambelt cover at the front of the car. It is not absolutely essential to remove the rad but it is only 4 bolts and two hoses to get it out and it gives you alot more room to work. I would change the cambelt while I was there also to be honest. It will all have to come off again when you change the belt soo.... If you are not familiar with changing cambelts and timing it up I would let a pro do it. It is not worth the chance you might mis time it and ruin your engine.

New timing belt fitted 2000 miles ago by garage after cambelt had snaped causing damage to engine. garage fixed engine and cambelt. auxillary was not replaced and shredded causing damage to new cambelt...


NO.a garage doesnt even have to ask you what "extras"you want(aux belt)although if they asked you would you have agreed as "most garages are a ripoff trying to fit items that are not required...."the majority are not cowboys but get tarred with the same brush.

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!!
