I would replace only if needed. If you have never changed I would change hoses and belts. Water pump, I would not change until it goes bad or is making noise.

How tor eplace timing belt


good luck on this one the timing belt on Volvo is very important & IMHO I would not attempt this as if it go's or not fitted correctly your talking big bill to repair I had my dealer do mine the kit consists of timing belt , adjuster & jockey wheel, & its advisable depending on mileage to change the water pump also to change the aux belt along with its adjuster & jockey & to check free wheeling pulley if on your model & I believe that Volvo say 108,000 miles or 6 years old whatever comes first for this service hope this helps

When should the timing belt be changed


I want to say it is every 100,000 miles. At the same time you do the timing belt replace the water pump and belt tensioner as well. They may not seem bad but go ahead and do it while being in there. It will save you problems down the road

I have a automatic 2003 Subaru legacy L 108,000 miles, I had new belts and a water pump replaced last year, I just had the spark plugs changed. When I try to accelerate, it is very slow and the car revs...


My guess would be either the transmission fluid and filter needs to be srviced or the transmission is having a issue with the shift linkage.. Does it improve when the car warms up ?

What all should I replace while replacing the water Pump on my 2000 ford contour


That's a very good question...but I gather that this car has been taken care of and should be in very good shape and with economy the way it is..I see no reason to get a new car...My advice..Just get the water pump replaced and happy motoring....and don't let any mechanic try to sell you something that you don't need...I'm sure that you've heard the expression"If it ain't broke...don't fix it."..I hope this was heplful...PEACE.....

I have a 100000 miles on my cts took to shop said i need to have the thermosat changed and valve gasket changed wood i need to go ahead and change timeing belt and water pump to


Yes.

Timing belt is rated for 85,000 to 95,000 miles.
You do not want to wait for it to break.

Today's timing belt is being use to drive water pump.

3.2 Liter MPI V6 is modular.
The engine has to come out from the bottom!!!!
It will save you 2-3 hours of labor time to do ALL these work at the same time.
===
Ask your service advisor to replace all heater hose at the same time to avoid trouble.
Inspect all engine and transmission mounts.

This is going to be costly but it will safe the labor charge now to complete all the tasks at the same time.

When to change timing belt on 2003 mitsubishi galant


Most timing belt suppliers recommend 50k to 60k miles for replacement. Your Galant has a interference engine meaning that if the belt fails your will incur major engine damage up to and including replacement of the entire engine.

So if you have over 60k miles on the car go ahead and change the belt, and while you have it apart replace the water pump.

When should the water pump be replaced?


Your water pump will easily give you 100K plus miles. If your changing our the serpintine belt and you have 100K or more mile I'd go ahead and replace the pump. The cost for it is only $30 or so, plus replacing radiator fluid. As repairs go it is an easy fix.

I hope this may have assited you,
Tom

I have a 200 chevy 2500 pickup, and this morning while doing maintenance i saw that my radiater was clug-up with rust clunk i clean it , i took the hose that goes from the top of radiater to the top of the...


The rust that you saw may come from the engine, the metal parts of the radiator or the water pump itself. Removing the hoses for cleaning is fine as long as it is returned to their proper places. For the sources of the rust check first the radiator cap for corrosion, you may need to have it replaced as well. Check out the metal coils of the radiator if there is rust build up. To get to the water pump you will have to remove some serpentine belt and the timing belt to get to it. The work that will be used to get to it and replacing it is almost the same as in replacing a timing belt. Make sure to check the timing belt while at it to save time and labor. Whenever I replace my timing belt I also have the water pump checked and replaced if needed.
