I just had my 2004 TL's timing belt replaced in Jan 2010 by the dealer and the total repair for belt, water pump and all other normally suggested parts came to $859.90. My car had 139,990 miles and the work was done at the Acura dealer in Jacksonville Florida.

That's a judgement call on your part. Are you gonna keep the car for a long time? Mileage on the car? Changing the timing belt/chain is a labor intensive job, and mechanic would be working in the same area. He's saying since he's in there, why not do the water pump, etc. I see his point. It's sort of like getting some labor for free since he will be working through those parts to get to the timing belt.

As far as cost, not sure. Cost of part, and an hourly rate of probably $90-100.00/hr.. If a dealer is doing the work, it will be top dollar all around.

Does the 2008 Acura TL have a timing chain or belt?


All the Acura motors listed in my book show a chain. The water pumps are driven by a serpentine belt. Water pumps only need changing when they leak out of the drain ho0le underneath or become noisy from failing bearings.

What does the sevice code B5 mean on an acura tl?


B is an oil and filter change, with visual inspection under the car. 5 is a coolant change. If you had your timing belt done in the last few years, they probably replaced your water pump and coolant, so it would still be good. Most coolants, including Acura's, are good for 5 years. (the original coolant that came with your car was good for 10 years)

My car has 134000 miles, last year we change the water pump and timing belt. what should I dot this year


Would not hurt to change the transmission fluid and filter. Run a can of good injector cleaner in your gas.
You did real well with the timing belt and water pump.
The serpentine belt should be replaced.

Should I replace the timing belt & water pump at the 90k for my 2005 acura tl


Yes it would be a very good idea to change them all at once. You can't go wrong there because most timing belts and water pumps go out around 90-100,000 miles. Go for it I would.

Good Luck!

I just bought my 2004 Acura TL 2 weeks ago. It


What you describe is consistant with a lifter not pumping up except at a little higher rpm, which would make sense. You have overhead cams, with hydrolic lifters. They pump up with oil. If you have one that is not fully "pumped", it will make a clicking noise when the camlobe moves it and it strikes the valve. This is not the only thing it could be...and maybe it is the tensioner, but if it is coming from the valve area....Also, your dealer should have a special stethescope so the mechanic can listen in spots, and move the pick-up to where the noise gets louder and make a better diagnosis.

How to install a water pump for a 1997 acura tl


I suggest that you visit the autozone.com website and register the car information. It doesn't cost anything and will give you access to an online repair manual for the car. The steps for replacing the water pump should be available there. It's a handy resource for anyone doing their own automotive maintenance and I'm sure you will find it useful. Sure hope so and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

2004 KIA Optima LX timing belt/water pump


The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck
