WELL TO BEGIN WITH, THE TIMING BELT & WATER PUMP NEED TO BE INSPECTED AT ABOUT 100,000 MILES. IF THEY ARE FOUND TO BE BAD ENOUGH THEN CHANGE THEM. THE WATER PUMP HAS WHAT ARE CALLED WEEP HOLES. THESE WEEP HOLES LET YOU KNOW THAT THE WATER PUMP IS BAD INTERNALLY, BEFORE IT LOCKS UP. THE BEST WAY TO CHECK THE TIMING BELT IS TO REMOVE THE COVER.

My Mitsubishi Endeavor (2005) has run 60000 miles. I am going to change Timing Belt. Is Water Pump actuated by the Timing Belt ? So does it make sense to change the Water Pump at the same time? Thanks in...


Its a rule of the thumb that when ever you do a timing belt yopu also change
  1. the crankshaft seals
  2. cam seals
  3. water pump
  4. tensioner pulley(included in the timing kit)
It will just save from paying someone just to pull it apart and do it all over.To reach the timing belt/chain all these will have to be pulled apart so why not change it so it lasta you another 100k's

Yes indeed, the water pump is driven by the timing belt on this vehicle and you would be well advised to change it and the idlers while you are at it. You can get timing belt kits for this vehicle that include the belt, 2 idlers and the water pump. In the UK, the kit is priced at about £70

Im replacing the water pump, timming belt on my 1996 audi a4 v6 2.8, they told me i need an idler roller and a tetioner roller, are those two the same thing? also what is a relay roller?


The idler pulley and the tensioner pulley are different. You will need special tools to do this job. I just completed doing the timing belt on my own 96 Audi A4 Quattro.Do you have a service manual for your car as this will help you alot. The tools you need are listed in the service manual with complete directions to complete the job. There are complete timing belt kits available that include the tools needed. The reason they recommend changing all the components is because it is often one of the components that fails that causes the timing belt to break.

Belt needed replacing and was advised to get time belt changed at the same time. Also stated I had small leak in my water pump. Dealership also recommended to have ECM cleaned and trans fluid flushed.


ECM CLEANED???? that sounds like some scam. It will need the timing belt replaced, and the water pump at the same time. You dont mention what engine and mileage? But if the water pump leaks, get it all done. Find a Independent Shop that works on Toyota.

Volkswagon passat 4 motion v-6 timing belt


Your engine uses a belt, the shop most likely wants to use a timing belt kit, you should replace the cam belt driven water pump as well

This is the timing belt kit
ACDELCO Part # TCK297P {6 Components (1 Belt, 1 Tensioner, 1 Idler, 3 Seals) #19164609}
BELT KIT,TMG INTERFERENCE ENGINE APPLICATION; DOES NOT INCLUDE CAM. TENSIONER HYD. ASSY.; TIMING BELT COMPONENT KIT W/SEAL PRICE $167.79

This is the water pump
CARDONE SELECT Part # 5583414 moreinfo.gif PRICE $70.99

So about $150 for parts, labor should be around 3-4 hours, here is California the job would price out for around $600.00

The parts are from the lowest price I found on the internet, this is WWW.Rockauto.com

2003 Honda Civic -LX Timing belt


90000 Miles on the Timing Belt. Do not let this go! A timing belt failure can cause internal engine problems.

Should cost around 200 or so, depending upon your local labor rates.

Good Luck!

Hi

This isn't too bad a job as timing belts and water pumps go, but then I've done so many timing belts and water pumps on so many different vehicles its all just a blur now!!

It is always recommended that if you release the tension from an old timing belt then you should fit a new belt and discard the old one.

I would also urge you not just to fit a timing belt. Buy a whole belt kit. You should change everything the belt touches which runs on a bearing, and apart from the water pump, it will all be included in the belt kit. The water pump is purchased seperately.

If any of the bearing-run components pack up then it will be just as devastating to the engine as a broken timing belt, because the timing will jump several teeth and valves and pistons will collide. The belt may even sheer or snap.

It is for this reason that if I ever get a call out for a routine timing belt change, I always advise the full kit, and the water pump.

It may sound a bit expensive to be replacing items that may not require changing, but if you think its only once every six years or so then its not that bad.

It is also very important to observe the torque settings for the center bolts of any pulley wheels (idlers and tensioner). If you whack them up too tight then the applied forces from the timing belt, instead of being dissipated through the bolt and into the engine, will instead act upon the bolt and it will eventually snap.

Apart from that, the very best of luck with it.

Regards
