Special tools are needed, so I would not attempt it unless you had another car to drive.

Changing a water pump on a 1996 buick century


I've changed a lot of water pumps and always started the same way; I make sure I have a repair manual (Chilton/Haynes, etc) that covers the year make and model of the vehicle I'm messing with. The manuals cover most applications as to the motor etc and give clear explanation and pics to help. Yes most of my answers on FIXYA refer people to parts store etc to get one of these books. But most people can do repairs themselves with one of these books. At the very least you can educate yourself against unscrupulous mechanics and garages. As to your vehicle, this water pump change can be easy or more difficult. It depends on the size of the engine, and any accessories (A/A etc) that tend to get in the way. You may not even need a new water pump.

Water pump


The water pump on this vehicle whether it is a four cylinder or a V-6 engine is driven by the timing belt and the timing belt has to be removed in order to change the water pump. The labor is between four and five hours times your local labor rate and figure about $150 in parts to as high as $350 in parts if you're going to do the timing belt and bearings. This job is not for the amateur home mechanic

2003 kia rio- water pumps


I would follow the mechanics recommedations. I think he's taliking about the cam and crankshaft seals. Yes the water pump should be replaced as well. The pump that sprays windshield washer fluid onto the windshield is called the windshield washer pump. The water pump is on the engine and pumps water (coolant/antifreeze) through the engine to the radiator and heater core.

HOW TO CHANGE THE WATER PUMP


There isn't really an easy way, as the water pump is driven by the timing belt, requiring removal of the timing covers, timing belt etc to replace. This is definitely a job for a mechanic, or at least a skilled handyman with a lot of experience with timing belt replacement. The timing belt and tensioner will need to be replaced at the same time, but at least then you know that it will not need to done again for 100,000 kms (60,000 miles).

Water Pump Replacement


Follow your fan belt - it goes around the water pump pulley. Can be done at home with a little mechanical abilty and tools - not real fun - some of the bolts are a little hard to get to
