Yes you can but its pretty deep inside the engine for most non mechanic people. if you feel confident doing a timing belt then the water pump is just one step away.
was the car overheating or leaking coolant or something? was curious how they got to that conclusion.

Hello,my 2000 odyssey leaks oil.guy said its front oil seal but im gonna need time belt,water pump,vtec valve and oil pan gasket.Do i really need all that just to change front seal? $400 for labor?


A leaking front seal will allow oil to get into the area where the timing belt is located. This will cause oil to get on the belt and can cause damage. Since the timing cover must be removed to access the front seal, it is recommended to replace the belt while you are in there. Also, the water pump is driven off the timing belt. Replacement of the water pump is always recommended when replacing the timing belt for two reasons. First, it is easily replaced at this time and it is good preventive maintenance. Secondly, the water pump bearing is under tension from the timing belt and develops a wear pattern. Replacement of the belt without replacing the pump will cause the new belt to wear the bearing in a different pattern, often causing leaking in a very short time after the replacement. This would then result in having to repeat all the labor again to replace the pump. It is easy to see that for $400.00 labor, you don't want to do that again in only 2-3 months. as far as the VTEC valve is concerned, I don't see a relationship to the oil leak. It could just be something else the mechanic found during the inspection. I can find nothing in the remove/replace procedures that requires replacement of the oil pan gasket. Again, maybe something additional that is needed from visual inspection, but not needed for the front seal.

Trying to find the water pump


On cars that have a timing chain, the water pump is usually mounted on the front of the engine block and is driven by the drive belt. On most cars that have timing belts, the water pump is mounted on the front of the engine as well, but driven by the timing belt and is concealed under the timing belt cover. It is always recommended that the water pump be replaced whenever the timing belt is done because due to variations in timing belt tension, if you reuse the old water pump on a new timing belt, the average life span of the water pump can be measured in weeks. Some folks think that the repair shop is just trying to milk more money out of them, but this is one case where they are right. If you go cheap (and really, the difference in parts is usually after 40-50 USD with about the same amount in additional labor), you will wind up spending the full labor cost of a timing belt job again in a few weeks to replace the pump.

Took my car to get repaired said it was water cost 800.00 dollars said it would take 7 hrs to fix is this true


A ball park figure would be around $600 with cost of pump and labor with labor being most of cost as placement of pump. But I would say you have the full right to have a second opinon of what is wrong with your car before you pay out that amount. Remember you are the customer and they are the client. And cost difference of thermostat and pump is some bills and pcoket changes as you have shown above.

How much will it cost to have my water pump replaced in my 2000 Alero. I am getting a quote of over $1,000.00 dollars because of the position the water pump is placed.


Your 2000 Olds Alero should have the 3400 V-6 engine...the water pump sells for about $45. The change out does not require the removal of any major components...(ie engine mounts etc.) You can loosen the serpentine belt to gain full access to the water pump bolts...Yes you will lose some anti-freeze and need to refill after replacing the pump...antifreeze $8.50 per gallon...recommend you use antifreeze "Good for All Models" as it has proven to be the best for longevity...Hope this helps...Your estimate is way to high...A shop will mark up the part slightly, and charge for labor...This job should be completed in less than 1 labor hour...$55. to $75. per hour depending on your location...PLEASE shop around if you cannot do this one by yourself:)

Have a 2002 dodge ram truck was on park on heated up spit antifrreze got hot resorvoir was full n radiater cap not hot what can it be


A good possibility that you have a stuck water temperature thermostat blocking all flow of water into the radiator but the water in the engine block is boiling from not cirulating. I relatively inexpensive repair for the part and labor.

The water pump could also have had the impeller fail by coming loose from the pump drive shaft resulting in no water flow at all.

1. Thermostat
2. Water pump
3. Some one overserviced the reservoir at a "full service" gas station or during an over zealous oil change and service.
