If the belt hasn't been changed in a while, it's a good idea to do it while you're in there -- it'll save a lot of labor later -- check owner's manual for belt change interval.

How do I remove waterpump on a 98 grand am 2.4liter twin cam


You really should buy a manual for this job because you have to remove the timing belt to remove the water pump. And if you don't get it back into the right position, it could ruin the engine. And if you do it, Since your in there, I recommend you get a timing kit and replace it also.

How do i change the water pump on a 2000 dodge,grand caravan


Removing and changing the water pump on a 2000 Grand Caravan should only be done if your van has a 3.3 liter or 3.8 liter V6 engine. On any other engine types, including four-cylinder engines, you must remove the timing belt from the engine to access the water pump, which is a dangerous task that can mess up the engine if attempted by an amateur.
The procedure is as follows:------------- The water pump is responsible for sending the engine coolant to the engine.First of all remove the serpentine belt then remove the plastic cove on the passenger side behind the wheel. You will have to remove the pulley. Once the pulley is removed unbolt the water pump and remove it. Clean the surfaces and install new pump. Draining the coolant and replacing it is advisable.
Drain the engine coolant, twisting and removing the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator
-------------------Thats it.

Cost to replace timing belt honda accord uslx


7 hours. at my shop $50 per hour equals $350 the high retail for the belt is $58 and it'swiseand maybe nessary to changethewater pump while the work is being done. This is for the 6 cylinder car and changing the oils seals on the oil pump and the cam shafts. The belt is supposed to be changed every 80 thousand miles and the seals and the waterpump shoould be changed too. If the belt failed ( broke) the the engine may be damged and have to be rebuilt to repair the damage or even replaced ( the whole engine). the 4 cyclinder is different. The V Tec taks 4 hours before changing the seals and the water pump. add 2 1/2 hours for that. the twin cam non v tec is about the same but if the belt isbroken all this is for not.as theengine may ( it does'nt have to be) damaged.and sometimes beyond resonable repair. ( you can fix anything if you spend enough money) If the engines damaged by a broken timing belt a good used moter installed is likly better an cheaper.

Camry timing belt


Both the 2.2 Liter 4 cylinder and the 3.0 Liter V6 have a cam belt that must be replaced every 60,000 miles. The cam belt also drives the water pump and for this reason I recommend you replace the cam belt at 120,000 miles when you replace the cam belt the second time. Neither engine is an interference engine.

2000 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 liter engine timing belt replacement


If you have the same pulley arrangement that most 4.0 engines have that pulley is an idler not a tensioner. Your power steering pump has a pivot bolt, and a slide under the pump. You adjust belt tension using the pump.

Hi....
On your 2004 Santa Fe.
The water pump is not driven by the Timing belt.
Is not stricttly nessesary to replace togheter. they are individual.
But I recomend replace the timing belt when you replace the water pump. Because for get axces to the water pump,
you need to remove all the Timing covers.
Is just a few more minutes to remove the Timing belt.
Inspect the Engine seals, cam and crank Replace if need.
My PC show me a 2.4L 4cyl. for 2004 santa fe.

Ok.. The labor for that job Removing the Timing belt and water Pump ...IS:
2.8 hours. just the water pump 2.4 hours.

OK.. I hope this help on your question...
Thank you for use fixya..
