Hi the cost will depend on where you go to get them replaced and if they are going to fit them for you, you need to change the timing belt at every 5,000 mile intervals to be safe, you can take it to 8,000 miles but not advisable,, hope this helps

How to fix a 2002 mitsubishi galant water leak


Depends upon the source of the water leak. Common places to leak are at hose connections, the radiator core, the heater core, or the water pump. Once you have identified the source of the leak, repair or replace parts as needed. If you have a 6-clyinder model, the water pump is located behind the timing cover, driven by the timing belt. Many owners believe that the repair shop is trying to rip them off when thy recommend water pump replacement at timing belt replacement time and opt not to do it since the pump is working. Unfortunately, the new timing belt will cause a different wear pattern on the pump shaft and almost unfailingly, the pump will leak within a few weeks or months after the timing belt is done. Many shop now refuse to replace the timing belt without water pump replacement for this reason, or will make the owner sign a waiver of responsibility if they refuse the additional service/cost.

How much dose water pump cost


Hi,
Call your Dealer or local Auto parts store. Labor cost is probably the bigger expense in this repair.

Also, the water pump may run off the timing belt/serpentine belt. That should be replaced if needed.

The water pump failure sounds fishy to me. I avoid dealerships at all cost. They tend to overcharge , and fix unnecessary stuff.
The timing belt on the other hand should have been done at 100,000 km / 60,000 mi

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

Water leak from water pump


No the timing belt does not have to be changed but you do have to remove it to get to the water pump so i would recommend that you do so and also replace the tensioner, i can't tell you a price because i don't where you are i am South Carolina and the parts alone for t-belt ,water pump and tensioner are about 150.00$ cost from Ford (list is a bit higher) and about 3.5 to 4.0 hrs labor at a shop

Water pump chang on mitsubishi Galant 2.5 V6


Waterpump replacement requires removal and replacement of your timing belt. Because of this it is not your typical do it yourself repair. Engine timing is critical, and not having your belt set correctly can lead to catastrophic engine damage.

You can purchase a service manual at your local parts store to get an idea of what is involved, however this being an interference engine you should leave this job to a professional if you are uncertain enough about your abilities that you need to ask for help on it. The cost to replace the waterpump is far far less than the cost to repair a engine that had an incorrectly set timing belt.

Approx how much to replace the timing bell on 2000 chrysler 300m?


HI there. My water pump just went out on my 2004 300M with 85000 miles. My cost was about $400 to replace the water pump and timing belt.
I recommend replacing the water pump at the same time since you have to take the timing belt off to change the water pump.
$350 is a good price. The dealer will charge you double that.
