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.

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

My Mitsubishi Endeavor (2005) has run 60000 miles. I am going to change Timing Belt. Is Water Pump actuated by the Timing Belt ? So does it make sense to change the Water Pump at the same time? Thanks in...


Yes indeed, the water pump is driven by the timing belt on this vehicle and you would be well advised to change it and the idlers while you are at it. You can get timing belt kits for this vehicle that include the belt, 2 idlers and the water pump. In the UK, the kit is priced at about £70

Do you have to change the water pump when changing the timing belt/timing?


You don't have too, but not bad idea, the timing belt drives the water pump, if you just replace timing belt, and not water pump, water pump could go out and mess up the timing belt, now it has to be done all over again, timing belt, water pump and labor.

1994 accura integra how do you replace water pump without replacing timing belt


Hi:
Sorry, but the timing belt must come off to remove the water pump, because that is what spins the water pump.

Common sense says to replace the timing belt and tensioner when the water pump gets changed, and change the waterpump when you change the timing belt...

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.

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

Timing belt/waterpump


usually a good time to change it is at about 100,000 miles. change it before it becomes a must or not ride(type of thing). if your water pump is run by your timing belt, then yes you should change the water pump when you do the timing belt. the tension from the new belt will sooner than later kill the bearing in the old water pump and it will cost you twice to fix it versus the one time fix. when you go in to the shop there should be no additional cost to replace the timing belt because it has to come off to replace the water pump.
