What is the model of your car, year and how many miles do you have on it?

Normally they say you are to replace the belt within 80k miles with the "tune up" which some times if it doesnt look too cracked you can push it possibly another 10k or more miles but it's not a good idea since it keeps things on schedule and running smoothly. If you are handy with cars or know someone who is educated as a mechanic you can have them replace it for a simple $30 or more but just purchasing the proper belt for your car make, model, year. etc. That is what we did. Otherwise most places will charge you an arm/leg to have them replace it for you--we're talking $100 as high as $200!! for a $30+/- belt!

As far as the water pump you'd also have to verify that with a mechanic. There might be more tied to it then you think there is. Some places will offer you a free estimate [make sure they are trusted!] then you can run from there on what you might need in order to fix it or have a mechanic you know replace it. I'm sure it's most likely going to cost you well under $2K if you have a reliable source replace those items for you.

But most of the time you do not have to place one with the other. Those go within their own schedule times [belt] and others just go out on you [aka: water pump].

I have a ford escort Zx2 2000 and my water pump is leaking bad I have lost pressure when I hit my gas pedal inorder to replace my gas pump do I have to replace my timing belt as well?


If the water pump is leaking, it needs replacement. Timing belt is replaced at certain mileage intervals . You can have the belt inspected by a garage. The timing belt does not have to be changed to replace the water pump. If a timing belt is changed, then it is standard procedure to change the water pump, since the water pump is removed when replacing the timing belt.

I just bought a 1987 BMW 325 6 cylinder with 98,000 miles. I believe it to be the eta (e) or economy engine. The car had the timing belt 2,000 miles ago in 2000, but the car has not been driven since...


belts should be changed every 60,000 miles or 5 years max so it is due a belt anyway.
if the belt does come apart it will do serious damage to the valves , head and pistons.

i would change the water pump at the same time for peace of mind. especially as it will be exposed while doing the belt, and you do not know if the pump is seized/worn.

How many years or miles should a timing belt be changed on a 2000 V8 Tundra ?


Replace the timing belt at 90,000 miles or 10 years. Considering it is already 11 years old, replace it now. Warning: This is an interference engine. If the belt breaks you will have serious internal engine damage. The water pump is also driven by the cam belt so it is advisable to replace it at the same time you replace the cam belt in order to save labor cost later on when the pump fails. The pump will not last 180,000 miles so replace it now.

When i change my time belt, should i also change the water pump?


Yes it is always better to change the water pump when you do this unless it has been changed recently. Also make sure to clean the front end of the engine real good with a solvent before putting the timing belt back on.. Good luck.

I have a 2000 pontiac montana and its making a load noise by the belts and its leaking some kind of oil and the water temp is maxed out


its probably the water pump pretty simple to change locate the large smooth pulley on top of the serp belt take out the 4 bolts take off the serp belt remove the smooth pulley the water pump is under the smooth pulley take out the 5 bolts on the water pump and the water pump will come out on the new water pump the gasket will only go on one way make sure you turn it the right way so the holes line up use a little gasket sealer to hold in the right place replace with new pump on the tension pulley there is a 3/8 square hole that you can put a long handled socket or breaker bar in to loosen the tension on the on serp belt so you can streatch the belt back over the pulleys i only wish the thermostat was as easy to change.

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

My 2000 Camry XLE has 130,000 miles on it. I was thinking of changing the timing belt because I don't know if the previous owner replaced it or not, I do not want to take the chance. Can you tell me please...


Timing belt change interval is 75,000 miles.

It's time to change the T-Belt and water pump now.

Water pump is directly behind the timing belt cover.

It's best to get the water pump done at the same time.

I have a ACURA 3.5 RL with only 138000 KM and wondering if I should replaced the timing belt and water pump


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
