SOURCE: Changing timing belt and water pump

As every car is a little bit different, it is impossible to detail the requirements for every car. However, here is a general guide as to what you can expect to have to do when replacing a timing belt. I highly recommend buying the appropriate Hayne's Manual for you car at an auto supply store. It's a great reference that includes step by step instructions and helpful pictures.
Wait overnight for the engine to cool off. It's not worth it to risk burning yourself on the engine, which stays hot for a long time!
Disconnect the battery and chock the wheels so that the car cannot roll.
Remove all obstructions to the timing belt cover: This can take a while, as there are usually quite a few things in the way. Here's a list of a few common pieces you'll have to remove:
Remove the air intake assembly.
Loosen the pulley that powers the water pump, if necessary. Some cars require your to remove other equipment such as the power steering pump. If so, remove the belt from the pulley, and unbolt the pump. Move it back out of the way.
Remove any other accessories that interfere with access to the timing belt.
Use a large wrench on the crankshaft pulley to align the mark on the crankshaft pulley with the 0 on the timing scale molded into the engine block.
Remove the timing belt cover bolts and pull the cover off.
Check the tensioner bearings. Replace them if they are loose or noisy.
Check the camshaft and crankshaft seals. If they leak, it could cause premature failure of the new timing belt. Replace them if necessary.
Make sure that all timing marks are properly aligned, then loosen the timing belt tensioner and remove the timing belt. Do not allow either the camshaft or crankshaft to move while the belt is off.
Put the new belt in place. Adjust the tension, if necessary. Make sure that it sits well over the teeth of the timing sprockets. Don't over-tighten.
Apply a new gasket to the timing belt cover and replace it.
Reinstall all of the accessory pumps that you took off earlier, including the water pump. Many mechanics recommend replacing the water pump while you have it off. It's up to you.
Check that all timing marks are still properly aligned.
Reinstall the air intake assembly.
Reconnect the battery.
Start the engine and listen carefully to how it runs. You shouldn't hear any loud knocks if the timing is still correct.
Info taken from :
I think you should better go to a mechanic. You'll be charged something like a 100$. If you are not 100% confident in what you're doing, you can damage the car and then it will only get worse. I advise you to go to a mechanic (a guy with his own garage, don't go to walmart or something of the sort, they will charge you 10x more) and ask him how much for the labour and parts.
Good luck !

SOURCE: subaru loyale wagon replacing the timing belt

Get a proper manual like Haynes (amazon, parts store,  You should not have to take either main pullel or cam pulley off to change timeing belt,  you DO want a new tensioner and and new idler pulley (if there is one).  Failure to replace these may result in a later failure that wipes out the blet, and possibly the motor (if it is an interference motor).
If you can change the oil pump from working on the front side of the motor, you are either a magician or a contortionist;!) and I need you to help me work on my car;~)    It's pretty rare for an oil pump to go bad before 400K km or 300K miles  ... the bloddy things are in a constant bath of oil!

SOURCE: Do I change water pump when having timing belt changed

I would go to auto zone and get a diagram and the timing belt and do it yourself and the water pump (no it does not have to be changed everytime the timing belt is changed but if the car has over 60,000miles then it is best to change them both) it is not that hard especially if the car is not out of time just make sure you disconnect the negative side of the battery

SOURCE: 1999 Tercel. Timing belt/water pump interval change?

Hello tinaromano1: The factory specification are to replace the belt every 90,000 miles in severe service. I would recommend to replace at 90,000 no matter what the service would be. Keep in mind should the belt break there is always a chance engine damage may occur. Should you need further help just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

SOURCE: need instructions to change timing belt and water pump on 2005 huyndai accent

It would be hard to explain over the computer.
The best and easiest way to do this is get a Chilton manual for the auto-parts store. The book runs about $20.
It will show you step by step on how to do it. It's the do-it-yourself bible for your car.
This way you have all the pictures, diagrams and other info you need. It's great research material.

How do i remove all the front covers on a toyota d4d diesel engine ?

i suggest that you get a workshop manual as if it has a belt there will be no gears
the belt runs the cam shaft/s and the fuel pump
if you have to get to where you want then all the cam pulleys , idlers , crank pulley, possible water pump will all have to be removed first but that will be explained in the workshop manual

Changing water pump 2000 ford focus

Changing a water pump is pretty basic. Since the coolant system is a closed system you only need to be concerned with that system. For instance you since you have to mess around with it anyway you might as well change the thermostat and flush the coolant system. Make sure your radiator hoses are in good shape and that's about it.
If you have basic mechanical skills and tools you will have no problem replacing a water pump.

As far as information with the actual replacement there are a number of experts here including myself that could explain how to do it.
However no matter how good our explanations are it just can't compare to a good repair manual.
A repair manual for your car at Auto Zone would likely cost between $12 and $15. It is a great investment if you are going to keep your car for any length of time. When you sell, it shows the buyer you took the time to maintain and repair it right.
I personally like Haynes Manuals.
I hope this helps.

1994 4 door mazda 626 need to locate where the water pump is on this car

The water pump is located at the front of the engine ( where the timing belt is) To replace it you will need to remove the timing belt covers and the belt. If you have not tackled this sort of problem before i would recommend you purchase a workshop manual ( Haynes or similar) and that will show you the correct way to do it. Best of luck.

Water pump

Okay...this is how to remove and install do it from under neath...some of it...

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. CAUTION
    Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  2. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
  3. Raise the car and support it with safety stands.
  4. Unfasten the splash shield bolts and remove the shield.
  5. Loosen the water pump pulley retaining bolts, then remove the drive belt.
  6. Remove the A/C compressor bolts and move the compressor aside.
  7. Unfasten the water pump retainers and remove the pump from the middle timing belt cover.
  8. To install:
  9. Install the water pump and tighten the retainers to 17 ft. lbs. (24 Nm).
  10. Place the A/C compressor in position and tighten the mounting bolts.
  11. Install the drive belt and tighten the water pump pulley bolts.
  12. Install the splash shield and tighten the bolts.
  13. Fill the cooling system with the proper amount and mixture of coolant.
  14. Connect the negative battery cable.
  15. Start the engine and check for leaks.
