Yes it is recommended to change the timing belt at a reguarl interval and if the water pump is driven off the timing belt its a good idea to change it as well there's the chance that if the water pump goes out it could cause major engine damage contacting your dealer or auto parts store will help you determine when to do it and if you can do it your self.

How i change water pump in a toyota siena


Very involved job, the water pump is driven by the timing belt, you have to take off the whole front of the motor. Recommend you change timing belt and pulleys too, recommended interval is 60,000 miles. Several good videos on youtube cover the process.

Need to no after how many miles we have to change the timing belt


It is recommended that a timing belt should be change every 100,000km. Honda's and Acura's especially. Whenever the water pump is changed, it is also wise to change the timing belt too as it is all in one spot, and VS. In some cars, [Acura's], when the timing belt breaks, it also can tear your valves in your engine apart, so I hope that this answers your question

Where is the water pump on a 2000 dodge carvan


mskentland69, The water pump for your vehicle is located under the front engine cover and is operated by the timing belt. To access this you have to remove the forward motor mount, both of the belts, the right side splash guard, the crank shaft pulley and the cover. This is a two piece pump that has to be taken apart as you will reuse the back portion of it. It is usually recommended that you replace the timing belt at the same time. If you had a timing belt problem then it is recommended that you change the water pump at that time. Good luck with this.

Do i have 2 remove the timing belt on a 4g63 sohc to replace the water pump


I'm not familiar with the exact model, but I have never seen an engine design that would require you to remove the timing belt to replace the water pump. Most manufacturers recommend that the timing belt and the water pump be changed at the same time. They have similar failure times, and it's just easier to get to both at the same time.
You should probably take it to a shop and have both changed at the same time if you can afford it. I would not recommend you attempt to change the timing belt yourself, unless you really know what you are doing.

Today T-Belt is also drive the water pump.
I strongly recommend you to change the water pump,T-belt,tensioner,and plastic guide at the same time.
Check for any sign of freeze plug leak on the block while you servicing the belt.

How do you set the timing on a Plymouth Voyager ? I have to repace a broken timing belt. I was also told to replace the water pump is that true.


It is recommended because if you have to change the water pump belt change since you have to remove it and you save work in the future as we recommend changing the camshaft seals and crankshaft as it saves time and money

What else needs to be changed when doing a timing belt on a 1999 honda accord? and about how much should it cost?


Technically, nothing else needs to be changed when replacing a timing belt, however it is recommended or suggested to replace the timing belt tensioner and water pump while doing the belt. These items are only accessable when doing a timing belt. The cost should be under $100.00

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.

If you know that the timing belt has not been changed at the regular interval or ever been changed, then YES. Also change the water pump and timing belt tensioners.
Its normal to change every 80,000 - 100,000 km
