I am having the same problem that these folks have described. My 2007 Buick Rendevous will sound like it is going to crank and then it doesn't. It will take about 10 or 12 time doing this and then I will...


could be alot of things but most normally it sounds as if the fuel pump may not be working correctly. whens the last time you had or changed the fuel filter could be dirty. have the fuel pressure checked. have you looked at your air filter? this is where i would start with the diagnosis

Timing belt should water pump be changed as well?


If it's a ES300 yes replace water pump, due to timing belt drives water pump, if it's a GS300 no need to replace water pump, not driven by timing belt.

2002 Intrepid: need to replace the water pump...


In the 2.7L V6, the water pump is driven by the timing chain. I'm pretty sure that in the 3.2/3.5L V6, it's driven by the timing belt. In both cases, it's a lot of work to get to, as you have to remove everything on the top (intake plenum, valve covers) and front (belts, pulleys, idlers, p/s pump, and timing cover) of the engine. Then, after removing and replacing the water pump and timing chain/belt, you have to make sure that the valve timing is exactly right, and reset the chain tensioner on the 2.7L.

A lot of work. Unless you're very comfortable with working on engines, leave it to a professional. You'll save yourself a headache (not to mention some busted knuckles). ;-)

My 2002 Buick Rendevous has a hot coolant


Install the new thermostat (make sure it is the right temp). This will allow for your coolant to stay long enough in the radiator to cool down.

If that does not fix it, check radiator cap, belt that turns the water pump and the water pump itself along with its pulley.

There is also the possibility that the coolant temperature sensor is giving off false readings, that the coolant system is clogged or your engine fan is not operating when it should be.

How do you replace the water pump on a 2002 mazda 626 4cyl? does it interact with the timing belt?


hi from uk the 626 water pump is not driven by timing belt but by another drive belt so easy to change after removal of under wing cover to access /see pump b4 you remove drive belt would advise you to slacken off the water pump pully 1st while it is held by drive belt to prevent turning ? then with belt off /pully removed pump is more accessable hope this helps?

If I replace water pump do I need to replace timing belt?


No. The water pump has a v-belt that is shared with the power steering pump. This second-tier belt is driven by the serpentine belt, not the timing belt.
