Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

2000 NB 1.8 L Turbo Had the timing belt, waterpump and tensioner replaced New in Dec 05. 91,000 k Was told today that the belt is cracking and waterpump is leaking. 157,000k. How long do waterpumps last, I bought a one with an steel impeller. Could belt be broken down by coolant? Should I bring it back to VW and get them to fix it? I did not see the old components when they replaced them, could they have not changed them? I don't know what to do as I cannot afford a new car and don't want this one to break down on me.

I think the recommended replacement interval is 65-75k for turbo engines. so might just be due for another timing belt job!

My 2000 windstar sel threw the surpentine belt. It turns out the pully (when standing at the front of the van) located at the furthest towards the back is out of alignment. What component is this oully...


The 2000 ford windstar came with two engines, im not sure what engine you have so i will show you two diagrams and tell you what the part is for each, if you have the 3.0 engine which will say that on the valve covor then the pulley in the back would be the waterpump and the waterpump would need to be replaced but i suspect that you have the 3.8 engine because if the pulley was that loose to throw a belt then you would be leaking coolant . so the 3.8 engine has the belt tensioner in the back and this is what normally goes bad on these, you will need to replace the tensioner or just the pulley, most of the time its the tensioner which comes with a pulley, i will enclose a picture of the tensioner and see if this is the part you are talking about good luck hope this helps.johnjohn2_78.gifjohnjohn2_76.jpgjohnjohn2_79.gif

How to replace water pump on 2000 volkswagon beetle with1.8 liter turbo engine?


The following steps need to be taken to remove the pump.

1. Remove the ribbed belt. Compress the tensioner and remove the belt. Remove the ribbed belt tensioner.

2. Remove the upper timing belt cover.

3. Align your timing belt marks. The following pictures are for the cam timing mark, the flywheel timing mark for an automatic, flywheel timing for a manual and the marks on the harmonic balancer.

4. loosen the timing belt. There is a 13mm head nut that keeps the tensioner in place. Loosen this nut and turn the tensioner clockwise to get come slack in the belt. You are going to need a tool to get tension back on the belt. I use the tool pictured (picture of how to tension the belt) but know of people using snap ring pliers to rotate the tensioner.

5. Slip the timing belt off of the cam drive sprocket and off of the water pump.

6. Remove the water pump retaining bolts pictured and remove the water pump. The pump can often be stuck in place. A screwdriver carefully used can help in getting the pump

7. Moisten the o-ring with coolant before installing the new pump. Install the new pump.

8. Install the belt and tension as shown in the picture attached above. Turn the engine over by hand through a full revolution of the cam gear. Re-check the timing marks. The marks will often be off, don't be discouraged by this, it happens to everyone. If the marks are off loosen the belt and slip it the amount of teeth needed to align the marks.

9. Install the items taken off during the removal of the pump, fill the system with coolant and start the engine. The system will pretty much bleed itself out as it reaches operating temperature.

We are replacing timing belt on 1995 nissan pathfinder, the belt we bought has round teeth, the belt we took off has square teeth and this belt does not seem to work we have called dealership and they say...


There is definetly two types of belts.
Mabee the engine is a different year.
Both type belts are available.
While your in there replace the tensioner. and if you can afford it, change the waterpump too as preventative.
I have done many of these and most of them I replace the tensioner and waterpump.

How much to replace a timing chain on a 2000 vw passat--1.8 turbo-- should i do this?--it has 113,000 miles on it and it runs great.-- have changed the oil on it every 5000 miles since new--


You should have the timing belt changed between 90-100K miles. When you are having the belt changed you should also change the water pump rollers. The total cast would be $950.00

Overheating blowing smoke


Your problem is a blown head gasket .You will need to have the gasket replaced . It would also pay to get the head crack tested and if it is ok get it machined or skimmed as it could be warped.
Consider replacing the waterpump and timing belt along with tensioner and idler.Make sure the thermostat is replaced also.Get the radiator cleaned as well.
Hope this helps

Waterpump belt


you have a serpentine belt, which is one belt drives all, so the routing of this belt is very specific also it matters whether or not you have a/c. Locate your belt routing chart under the hood before beginning. There is a tensioner pulley mounted on a spring arm, the spring arm should have a square drive hole in it, either 3/8" or 1/2" drive size you will need a ratchet of the proper size to insert into this square hole. Using the ratchet move the tension arm (away from belt) to loosen the belt and remove, route and install the new belt and move tensioner the same way place the belt over it and release. Hope this helps, let me know

When should I change the timing belt for my Volkswagen 2002 golf!


If it's a 1.8l turbo, change it every 80k miles for safety. I've seen them break as early as 75k miles, If it's a 2.0l, then 105k miles is a good interval. ALWAYS replace the waterpump and tensioners, because w/o doing that, you might as well not do the belt. The belt dosen't break b/c of age in 99% of cases, it's b/c the water pump or tensioner locks up.
