Most manufactures recommend changing timing belt at or around 60,000, if the belt breaks while operating the car it could cause serious engine damage

I have never heard of a "timed oil pump" but there can be a first. Also the timing belt is supposed to be tight. Alot of cars are "interferance" motors. Which means if the timing belt goes all the rods stop where they are and the pistons continue there rotation resulting in smashed rods and valves. It should be very tight to get on, try wrenching on the tensioner when you put on the belt. Even get another person to do one while you do the other. Good luck.

yes, this is VERY IMPORTANT, this is an interference engine, meaning the valves and the piston cannot be in the same place at the same time,or it will bend the valves.then you are looking at a major repair job,think or it as insurance on your engine. please rate my fix as i strive to be the best,questions,get back to me

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

if you have never done one take it to a shop because if you have the timing off a little you take a chance of bending valves then you would need a new head
