That depends on whether or not you're going to do the repair yourself. A new pump will run you about $40 or so and an hour or so of your time. I would guess a repair at a delaer or repair shop would run several hundred dollars, $300-$400?

The replacement is rather simple with the exception of one bolt being behind the power steering pump pulley. You'll have to remove two of the power steering pump bolts and rotate it out of the way to give you the clearance to get the last water pump bolt out. Make sure you get a new gasket and clean the old gasket off completely.

Have a Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3L what is behind water pump???Was driving and a hose popped off and coolant went everywhere its a hose from behind water pump.plwase tell me where the hose goes what needs to...


Is it the smaller water hose from the heater core? Coming from the firewall behind the engine? The metal fitting on the water pump will have to be replaced. Some are threaded and screw in. Others are press fitted, If a shop can get to the fitting where it is, they might fix it easily. Otherwise, you may need to have the pump removed, and a new fitting installed, or hey, a good time to replace the pump.
Good luck.

I own a 2003 Hyundai Elantra LX and currently have just over 63,000 miles. Is this the time that I should replace my timing belt? If so, would it make more sense to have my water pump done at the same...


Yes, you are just about spot on for the timing belt. Leave the water pump - if it ain't broke don't fix it. Changing the belts does not disturb the water pump so wait until it actually starts to leak, and that could be in years to come.

Timing belt broke is this a low tolorance enging


A 1991 GEO is worth scraping if this is your problem
A water pump is also needed to replace with the belt
It is a rule of thumb for the belt drives the pump as well
Think about selling it to a local kid as his first car that he has to fool with. The monet to fix it is really not worth investing into it
The fuel pump for these cost more than the worth of this car now

Water pump replaced 3X, broke off again, why?


A wrong size belt will generally just break the belt or throw it off the pulleys,and I can't imagine a mechanic would pu the wong one on twice,there's a good chance the problem is a pulley is out of alignment,most mechanics don't think to check if the other units pulley's shaft bearings are loose or if all the pulleys are correctly aligned,I can't be 100% positive on this as you describe the problem as a broken water pump,so it doesn't tell me if it's leaking water or whatever the case may be,but it would be worthwhile to have this checked out when it goes back to the shop.I hope this helps.
