Question about Mazda Millenia
No the water pump is not automatic with the timing belt, but it should have been recommended. If the coolant is coming out the passenger side of the engine it is most likely the pump. If it blowing out the radiator or coolant resevoir it is a blown head gasket.
I always recommend that the water pump be replaced with the timing components or the timing components with the water pump. you only want to do it once for labor costs. I am under no obligation to do that, it's just good practice to keep customers happy. And I like to give customers the heads up on what could happen if I only replaced a part that needed replaced and saw a part that was worn in the same area, to replace it while it was open and save them the labor cost of going in after it later. It's just good practice. The other mechanic is under no obligation to replace your pump. Find a reputable mechanic that knows what he is doing.
